Where to Dine on Vacation in Sandusky
When you head to a water park, one thing that should cross your mind is food.
Frequent splashing in water is an all-day affair, and the last thing you want to do is dry yourself off, pile everyone and all your stuff in the car, drive somewhere, eat , with only to go home and have to unpack everything again .
Luckily, at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, you don’t even have to leave the resort to grab a bite.
“We love, love, love, our food here,” said Deputy General Manager Andrea Toccaceli. “We have chefs in hats walking all over the building. It’s so fun for everyone to see how seriously we take food. We have a lot of different choices, so don’t think you’re going to come and only have one thing to choose from.”
So let’s start with breakfast – you have two main options when it comes to on-site dining. There’s the Great Karoo buffet, which has a plethora of things to choose from, including a make-your-own omelette stand and carving station.
The Java Hut is their version of Starbucks (yes, they serve Starbucks coffees and drinks there), but you can also get a variety of breakfast sandwiches, wraps, and pastries.
For lunch, if you’re in the water park and don’t feel like drying off, you can always grab lunch at one of the concession stands inside the water park.
If you want to take a break and really treat yourself, check out B-Lux. This restaurant, located just around the corner from where you check in, offers handcrafted burgers and milkshakes. Whether you’re looking for something classic or toppings, they’ve got you covered. The atmosphere is very relaxed and they also have a bar inside.
For a quick afternoon treat, head to the Candy Hut, which is just as you open the door. They sell Ashby’s ice cream, candies and many other goodies there.
If you’re looking for a fun version of happy hour, head to Mud Hut, an adults-only water bar located inside the water park. It’s in a hot tub in the back corner of the place, just past the exit of some of their big slides.
So for dinner, Sortino’s is the place to be! This is actually a very popular restaurant chain in the Sandusky area. The original owners spent years perfecting their recipes, which were passed down to them by their father who immigrated from Sicily. Their signature dish is the Pasta Mafia which features steak served on a bed of pasta in a spiced cream sauce with peppers and broccoli.
The restaurant’s design is meant to transport you to a trattoria in Italy, with an exposed outdoor patio and twinkling bistro lights.
So whatever you’re craving, Kalahari has something to satisfy your craving.
