Famous Dave's

If you're a meat lover, Famous Dave's is a must-visit experience.

You'll enjoy pitmaster favorites like Georgia chopped pork, Texas beef brisket, BBQ chicken and the award-winning St. Louis-Style spareribs smothered in Rich & Sassy® sauce.

Hugo's Italian Kitchen

If you're looking for carbs to refuel for the day, look no further.

This delicious place serves traditional Italian fare like hand-made pastas, fresh pizzas made in a large open-flamed brick oven, meatball sandwiches and family-size pizzas.

Melt Bar & Grilled

If you're looking for a relaxing atmosphere, and something not too heavy to put in your stomach for the day ahead, this is your spot.

Melt Bar and Grilled was born from Cleveland musician and chef Matt Fish’s love of two things: great craft beer and the humble grilled cheese sandwich.

Cedar Point's All Season Bottle

Staying hydrated at the park is extremely important, as you'll be walking several miles throughout the day.

If you forget to bring your own water bottle at the park, or would rather just purchase a bottle when you're at the park, Cedar Point offers an All-Season Souvenir bottle at an additional cost.

You'll be able to have free refills for the entire season on not just water but all Coca-Cola products.

The only catch is that you can't chug your drink and ask for a refill immediately.

You'll have to wait 15 minutes before receiving your next refill. 

You can purchase this directly from the Cedar Point Drink and Dining Deals part of the site.
