BJ's is a chain, we have more than a few of 'em down here in Florida.

But yeah, their pizza is amazing and the only time I'll ever accept deep dish as an option. So good.

Pierce's outside of BG Williamsburg and definitely if you are at Great Wolf Lodge. We bring a cooler and load up.

Had a good meal at Ceviche Latin Kitchen outside of Quassy.

Across the street from Six Flags Great America is an awesome Italian Fast Food place called Mama K's. My favorite place to go after some rides on Goliath!

Here are a few more new (and fairly new) joints in the Williamsburg area.

Craft 31

Image

This is a burger-and-pizza place with 31 craft beers on tap (mostly Virginia breweries). I haven't tried the pizza, but the burgers are very good.

3701 Strawberry Plains Road
Williamsburg, VA 23188
Turn left on Rt. 60 as you leave the park. Take Rt. 199 West toward Jamestown and Williamsburg. Turn right at the Rt. 5 intersection, then left on Strawberry Plains Road.

Old City Barbeque

Image

This used to be the Yorkshire Steak and Seafood House, but it changed last year. I rather liked the pork belly.

Image

Tasty fries and sauce, too.

700 York Street
Williamsburg, VA 23185
Just turn left on Rt. 60, cross under Rt. 199, and keep going until you see it on the left.

Amber Ox Public House

Image

This is an upscale brew pub. You have to love any brewery that names its American IPA "Cyborg Assassin Kittens."

I tried the Stone Ground Grit Cake, and it was excellent. The Hanger Steak looked pretty dang good, too. Oh, but did I mention the beer?

Image

525 Prince George St.
Williamsburg, VA 23185
This is a bit trickier to get to from Busch Gardens. It's located behind the Merchants Square shopping area near the College of William and Mary. Turn left on Rt. 60 as you leave the park. Turn left on York Street. York Street will become Francis Street. Turn right on S. Boundary. Carefully navigate your way through "Confusion Corner" between Merchants Square and the college--keep going "straight" past Merchants Square. Slight left on Prince George Street (when you reach the Nevis store and the Flower Cupboard shop). Pray that you can find a good parking space nearby.

Thanks for posting, Chuck!

Cyborg Assassin Kittens is an awesome name for a beer!

I enjoyed Jasper's outside of SFA one of the last times I went. They had the biggest, strongest, most properly made long island iced tea I ever had.

This thread hasn't had any new listings in a while, but I thought since park season is in full swing I figured I'd give it a bump. I've previously listed a couple of spots near Kings Island, but a relative newcomer to the area is Two Cities Pizza, which is probably my favorite pizza spot in southwestern Ohio. As the name suggests, they've got both Chicago and NY style pizzas on the menu, and both are delicious, if not truly "authentic". They're at 202 W. Main Street, Mason OH, about 10 minutes from the park. Oh, and make sure you check out the bathrooms!

The famous bathroom is inside of a subway train!

Gotta recommend Chovy's Italian Casual for anyone who wants a good meal after a visit to Conneaut Lake Park, or even Waldameer if you don't mind a 45-minute drive. I stop every time I'm in the area...great stuff!

I'd like to add Chunky Tomato for Lake Compounce. It's a small pizza place about 10 minutes from the park. The portions were gigantic and the pizza/calzones were delicious.
