The park is world famous for its food. From barbeque to good old-fashioned country home cooking to hamburgers, the park has just about everything to satisfy the whole family.

If you are looking for sit-down restaurants there are Granny Ogle's Ham N' Beans, Aunt Granny's All-You-Can-Eat Buffet, and Mrs. Lillian's Chicken House. If you like to eat on the run, there is Hickory House BBQ, and Market Square, where sausage and cheese steaks are cooked on an open skillet right in front of your very eyes!

For that sweet tooth, you CANNOT miss the cinnamon bread at the Grist Mill! Funnel cakes and kettle corn are also available throughout the park.
