Best Place to eat at CP

Monday, May 13, 2002 2:30 PM
I've only been to Cedar Point once and I am making my pilgrimage again this year. Th last time I went I didn't have a chance to eat since I was trying to get on as much rides as possible. Everyone brags about their food, but where exactly would you recommend? Thanx (BTW...I like burgers and fries...my friends like seafood)

Does this Midway Market discount for kids, especially the finicky ones that eat like birds? :)

I am not sure but ti htink they may. I got a buck off with my joe cool club pass. Really I htink Midway Market is the best buy in the park. You can really fill yourself up and drink as much as you want when a glass of pop is usually 3 bucks. It is so worth it even with a finicky kid. They have ice cream and all kinds of deserts.

I have yet to eat a Jonney Rockets (I will this year though), but I've heard it's good. Midway market is a good place to eat, I think they have a lower rate for kids and senior citizens (Good variety of food). Silver Dollar Saloon is not to bad ether (next to Raptor/Blue Streak).

Coasters is alright at Worlds of Fun and Valleyfair (I'm sure CoastaPlaya will disagree but I like em) However I don't like Cedar Point's as it isn't Table Service.

I like eating at that Coaster dinner, forget the name, but Knott's Berry Farm has the same eating dinner. But i like their shakes, and their burgers are wonderful.

Valleyfair's Coasters is nice, I really dont like Cedar Point's either though. Although they do make a nice Chocolate Malt on a hot day ::wink:: =o)

Hmmmm let's see here...

It all depends on what I'm hungry for.

I like the seafood pizza (yes, I know it sounds scary but it's awesome) at Domonic's inside the Hotel Breaker's. The best chicken strips in the world are at Silver Dollar.

If you want your moneys worth, than Midway Market is by far the place to eat. If you want a VERY nice romantic dinner. Bay Habor Inn is the place. If you want something for the kids, and you and have fun. I would suggest Red Garder Saloon or Lusty Lill's during or a little before show time. Kids also like Johnny Rockets...the servers do this little dance thing every now and than to the oldies. There are many things at the point for all occasions. CP is not known for thier food, but they do have some GREAT food if you know where to look :) Hope this gives you a few ideas...and see you at the Point!!

The car. Sorry to say it, but my wallet cringes a bit at the food prices at CP. I do love some of the treats they have, but I usually bring stuff from home. It may take 1/2 hour out of the day, but it allows me to buy a souvenier! $3.00 will buy six 20 ounce bottles at Meijer! :)

I've never had a meal at CP worth writing home about, though I agree that the Midway Market buffet is a great deal -- especially on a hot day where the A/C is as welcome as the unlimited soda refills. I didn't go through the Getaway Guide this year since I won't be hitting The Point this summer, but there was a Midway Market coupon in it last year. Unless I mis-remember, it's also one of the odd food places where the prices are lower during the week rather than the weekend.

Coasters is so-so. Johnny Rockets is the same chain fare you will find at any other Johnny Rockets. It is better fast food than the in-house stuff, though it's certainly not unique (shakes, malts, burgers, fries, etc.). I haven't been there, but the restaurant in the Marina (you have to leave the park through the Marina entrance gate, but it's a short walk from there) is supposed to be good. I have never had a good meal at Breakers. And, yes, kids were cheaper at Midway Market. I forget the exact prices. It's a huge variety of food put out there. Grab a late lunch and stuff yourself and you could cover both lunch and dinner.

Here's a starter question - what kind of atmosphere do you want to eat your greasy burger in? That's covers about 90% of the park cuisine. Here's the rest of my two cents....

There are very few places at Cedar Point that you can get food that isn't fried. Midway Market is one of a handful of places that offers salads, tacos, burgers and pasta, at a average price in one convenient place. This restaurant can appease vegetarians as well as carnivores. I know that after a hot day, I'd like to eat a nice, cool salad. Their desserts are pretty spectacular and for an "all-you-can-eat" price, it's by far the best deal in the park (plus it's air conditioned!). I thought I read inside that they offered discounts for children, but I'm not positive.

As for Johnny Rockets, I've had better. Everything I've ordered from there is greasy and heavy. It tends to sit in your stomach all day long. For $10 you can get a burger, fries and soda. You can buy the same thing at Midway Market for the same price, but get twice as much food, desserts and more!

The Silver Dollar was always a favorite of mine growing up. I wasn't impressed with Coasters - it was another version of Johnny Rockets. Macaroni's is not half bad if you're in the mood for pizza. There is always T.G.I.Friday's in the Breakers Hotel. They never disappoint and you can buy as many fruity drinks as you want!
