Dine & Shop


Food and Drink

With a focus on locally-sourced, sustainably farmed food, our dining options will fill any appetite. To reduce plastic pollution in our oceans, we now offer cans of Open Water and other drinks in aluminum instead of plastic bottles.

You may bring your own food to enjoy and reusable water bottle to fill during a zoo visit. No alcoholic beverages or cooking/barbecue equipment is allowed.
