Here's another suggestion for those of you seeking a good beer with your meal in Williamsburg: the DOG Street Pub in Merchants Square. They have an extensive selection of brew on tap and in bottles, in addition to some good "pub style" food, such as Shepard's Pie (excellent), Bangers and Mash (also great), and damn good burgers.
This used to be the Suntrust Bank Building.
Fish and Chips, anyone?
401 West Duke of Gloucester Street Williamsburg, VA 23185
Take Rt. 60 (a left turn) toward Williasmsburg as you leave the park. (This street is also known as Pocahantas Trail and York Street.) Turn left on Francis Street (this will take you past one side of Colonial Williamsburg). Turn right on S. Henry Street. The pub is on the left as you go through the stop sign. (Parking lots are available. Some are free, others charge a fee.)
Lunch or Dinner: Lion's Tap is an awesome burger joint with a very simple menu and amazing food. It's about ten minutes away from the park.
-16180 Flying Cloud Drive, Eden Prairie, MN-
Also lunch or dinner:Buffalo Tap is also a great restaurant with a variety of burgers, wings, etc. They also have the juicy lucy, which if you don't know is a burger with the cheese inside the patty. It's located in Savage on highway 13, roughly 10 or 15 minutes from the park.

Nickelodeon Universe/Mall of America
Lunch or Dinner: Fat Lorenzo's features amazing pizza, hoagies, pasta, and gelato. They have two locations, one in Minneapolis and one in Bloomington (which is about five minutes from the mall).
If anyone ever travels all the way out to Sylvan Beach, a couple hundred yards away is Eddie's restaurant; a really good diner/Italian restaurant that's been there since 1934, and it even still has a full-on soda bar.
OK, I finally got around to checking out another local breakfast joint that many locals like. I've driven past it many times, but never bothered to stop there until yesterday:
Astronomical Pancake and Waffle House 5437 Richmond Road Williamsburg, VA (This is the location I tried. They have another restaurant closer to Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William & Mary, but I can't dig up an address for it--it hasn't been open very long.)
If you're into HUGE FREAKIN' PANCAKES covered with all sorts of stuff, this is the place for you. I couldn't even finish my pecan pancakes. There were two of them, both the size of a dinner plate! Yes, it's pretty touristy, but I can forgive that if the food is good.
There's a new diner in town that I've heard good things about, too--hope to check it out this week.
Hard to miss this sign as you leave Williamsburg on Rt. 60.
There's a hotel for visiting workers behind the place, too (mostly college students).
Yep--there are two HUGE FREAKIN' PANCAKES on that plate, and they give you both whipped cream and butter. I could only finish half.
