The Patio Cafe at the Sportsmen’s Lodge has very good food at reasonable prices (comparable to Denny’s in price). You can choose to eat inside or outside and they have very convenient hours of operation.
Their menu is here (click to make larger), subject to change.
There is a cafe called Twains between the Lodge and the Courtyard Hotel (formerly the Days Inn) that has good food at a good price. Jerry’s Deli is the opposite direction from Twains (out the front gate of the Lodge, turn right for Twains or left for Jerry’s) and has a very impressive menu. It also has an arcade and bowling alley.
There are many small food places also within walking distance like Baja Grill and yes, there is a Starbucks right across the street. In California, we can say that about virtually any location. “There’s a Starbucks right across the street.”
There is a Ralph’s (grocery store) right across the street from the Lodge if you want to get food to keep in your room. Rooms do come with a fridge at the Lodge.
Most of the events will serve food of some kind. Find out in advance what you will be eating at the event so you can eat before you go in if needed. It may be a meal, it may be a snack or it may be nothing.
The Sportsmen’s Lodge pool bar also serves grilled food at specific times.
