For extra Info.
(Thank you Arti)
For your convenience I've added all the locations on Google Maps, showing all the locations relative to the convention buildings.

http://g.co/maps/5chnn

Some tips from Merino Thanks!

- DO NOT take pictures of cosplayers in ANY restaurant. Chain places have a lot of rules and you will likely be scolded for trying to take pictures.

- Do not wear a large, bulky costume when you are going to a restaurant, it is not fair to those eating at your table or to your server who has to go around you.

- Do not wear your fancy costume to go eat (unless you have a bib or something to protect your costume). Food stains, and oil based stains can be very difficult to get out.

- Do not use their bathroom to do make-up touch ups or change into costume. There are plenty of other places to do this, restaurants are busy other other customers (both convention goers and non-convention goers)

(Not cosplay but important)

- Be pleasant to your host and server, it is a very busy weekend for them
- Tip your server. Pretty self explanatory. (However the exception is if you believe their service was very poor then it is your choice to not tip. Wanting to spend your money on things in the dealers room instead is not a good excuse.)

- Anime North is sold out of weekend passes this year, that means there are at least 20,000 people looking to go eat. Be patient! There will be wait lines. Try going at non-peak hours if you do not like waiting. Also, being an Anime convention Sushi is very popular. Don't go to Sushi if you don't like waiting.

Also If you call ahead for take out or maybe to reserve a table you can save your self sometime. Depending on the restaurant.

Very nice! ^_^ My friends and I were just discussing how we'd actually like to go to a sit-down restaurant this year. I love Timmy Ho's as much as the next person, but I eat there every single day during the school year, so I'd really like some variety. At least one Anime North meal should be special.

Also, two years ago, Harvey's burgers tasted like hotdogs. It was really... disconcerting...

Thanks for the list. I was wondering if there were any sushi places nearby. However, I think you should either bold the restaurant name or space everything out for easier reading.

Well they do sell hotdogs too. Maybe the cook didn't clean the grill, leaving hot dog residue in your burger?

I was thinking that was probably it, but that just made me want to eat there even less.

Bolded :P Yeah there are 2 right close to the Congress Center and Double tree. There is a Japanese place in the Double tree as well. I will put up that info if i get time. They are often selling rice balls out front in the hallway.

this website has a load of resturants on it and it comes with great coupons like this one for fox bistro! Never used them before so don't know if they will take them at the resturant but the coupons update regularily and I don't see the harm in trying.

That's so cool, my friend and I went to The Congress Center on street view on Google maps and wandered around looking for places to eat. We found most of these guys and are looking forward to wandering around. Myself especially, I've never eaten at Jack Astors and I've heard great things. I'm excited to go!

Jack Astor's is good, but pretty expensive. And avoid it if you don't like a lot of random media (including tv's that have no discernable purpose but to switch commercials every ten seconds) and loud music.
