Food at Appalachian Power Park is affordable and tasty.

You won’t have to walk far when you work up an appetite at Appalachian Power Park. The ballpark has a large concession area on the first base side and a pair of stands down the third base line, and the ballpark’s intimate feel means food is always just a few steps away. Whether you’re into standard ballpark fare or something a little more exciting, you’ll find it here. On top of the items you’d expect to find at any minor league park – hot dogs, pizza, popcorn, nachos and pretzels, to name a few – various types of sandwiches and other tasty items highlight the menu here. At the Italian Stand concession, consider a meatball hoagie, pizza pretzel or chicken Parmesan sandwich. At the Portable Grill, grab a Philly cheesesteak or Rueben sandwich, or visit the BBQ/Nacho stand for beef brisket, spicy chicken or pulled pork nachos or sandwiches.

For something healthy, check out Chuck’s Natural Grill on the third base side. Here, you can enjoy such burgers as the veggie burger, organic beef burger, turkey burger and even buffalo burger. Other health-conscious items include organic chicken and turkey hot dogs and some out-of-the-ordinary sausages, including organic chicken and apple and organic spinach and feta. These products aren’t exactly light, but if you want to keep your visit on the healthier side, Chuck’s is your best choice.

For an alternative to ballpark food, check out Paterno's at the Park, an Italian restaurant found near the Morris Street gate. The restaurant features a wide range of items from seafood to salads to pasta and other traditional Italian fare, and has a patio that opens onto the ballpark's concourse.

In addition to an extensive list of soda and beer, Appalachian Power Park also sells Bacardi strawberry lemonade, spiked tea/lemonade and a variety of cocktails.
