Kings Dominion Adding New Dining Experience For 2021 Season
After putting the project on hold in 2020, Grain and Grill will open in 2021 as an all-new dining experience that will bring fresh, savory, and local ingredients packed with flavor to Kings Dominion guests. Plus, adults will be able to enjoy a refreshing craft beer, signature cocktails and wine at the patio bar.
For meals, guests will be able to choose a protein, a side and choose one of several toppings of choice — and the best part (besides the fantastic food)? Most of the options will be a part of the Dining Plan.
While there are many options, we want to give you a sneak peek at a few of the menu items that guests can choose from (and a few of our favorite combinations). Get ready because these dishes look de-lish!
To start off, guests will be able to choose from four different protein options between garlic and herb chicken, hand carved steak, garlic and herb shrimp, and crispy hoisin pork topped with Asian garlic barbecue sauce.
Once a protein is selected, you’ll then be able to choose a side from a variety of options plus add toppings to complete your meal.
Guests can choose from:
- Quinoa salad
- Basmati Rice
- Scalloped Potatoes Au Gratin
- Tomato and Cucumber Salad
- Pesto Penne Pasta Salad
- Stir Fry Veggies (made with tamari gluten free soy sauce)
- Roasted Seasonal Vegetables
- Adobo Macaroni and Cheese
- Spring Mix Greens
One of the great things about this location is it can cater to all guests. Whether you’re gluten free or low carb, or are looking for a variety of vegan and vegetarian options in the park – Grain and Grill has you covered!
A vegan dining plan option can consist of choice of stir fry vegetables, quinoa salad and cucumber and tomato salad. Top with roasted red pepper hummus and naan!
Another one of our favorite vegetarian combinations: pesto pasta with tomato, roasted vegetables topped with hummus, pickled onion, tzatziki sauce and served with grilled naan.
For a vegan, gluten free option, you can’t go wrong with quinoa salad on top of field greens with stir fried vegetables and topped with pickled peppers and onions.
Feeling extra hungry? If one protein and one side isn’t enough, you can upgrade your meal with another protein and sides for an additional cost. Our favorite combo for a premium meat option would be a fun twist on a surf and turf! Get a shrimp skewer with hand carved center cut steak on field greens with tomato and cucumber salad and naan for a hearty savory meal.
Grain and Grill will also feature a full-service bar with craft beers, ciders, wines, and cocktails for guests 21 and older. A signature Kings Brew Lager with a lemon herb shrimp skewer drizzled with siracha aioli, field greens, cucumber tomato salad and naan make a perfect pair on a warm summer afternoon.
When guests enter Grain & Grill, they’ll notice a whole new look. Crisp, clean and light colors will brighten the location and let the food steal the show. Guests will get a front-row view of the fresh cooking and grilling just behind the service lines before indulging in their own delicious dish.
Work is well underway to transform the interior of Grain & Grill. Once completed, Grain & Grill will have all new equipment to accommodate fresh hot and cold ingredients including a charbroiler and an incredible vertical rotisserie.
Work also continues on the new coaster coming to the park as well. (seen here)
