  1. Most of it is typical amusement park grub. I was last there two or three years ago and ate at the Johnny Rocket's which was a step up from the usual burgers and fries fare, but it's a little on the pricey side. I ate at the Macaroni's restaurant 4 or 5 years ago (at least) and it was OK. Standard pizza, pasta, sandwiches, etc. - an alternative to the typical CP fare. Seemed to attract a lot of families. I usually plan on the entire trip to CP and Sandusky being devoid of chow-worthy cuisine.

    1. I am a big fan of the skin on fries with malt vinegar over by the aquarium.

      I think its called Friar Tucks.

      It's been a few years, but I agree that they isn't much chow-worthy 'cuisine', but I wouldn't expect it either.

      Have a great time no matter what!!

      1. all i go for inside is the beer garden - ha!

        you might try MARGARITAVILLE near the entrance. not great but fun. otoh, a great local chow item to look around for inside is toft's ice cream -- if no, they have an ice cream shop nearby in sandusky.

        fyi - its cedar point, no modern suburban development "e" on the end -- lol!

        1. Try Famous Dave's. It's great for barbecue. Plus a great view of the marina.

          1. The food stand I recommend is Coasters. It's typical amusement park food, but the food is among the best at the park that isn't a full service restaurant. Cedar Point is a lot of fun and anyone considering going should go.
