Eat[edit][add listing]

  • Annie's Panda Garden, 320 Fairgrounds Dr., 707-644-6826, [1]. Annie's Panda Garden is a family owned Chinese food restaurant located about a mile from Marine World. It is one of the best Chinese food restaurants in town. It has over 13 years of experience serving local residents and visitors to Discovery Kingdom (formerly known as Marine World).
  • Good Day Cafe, 314 Georgia St Vallejo, CA 94590, Phone number (707) 557-4745. A homey cafe/diner where the service is incredibly friendly; it feels like you're in a small town where everyone knows each other. The food is mid-range and decent (not incredible) for diner fare, but the overall vibe of the place really makes it stand out in a sea of mostly mediocre restaurants and chain stores in the Vallejo area.
