Baseball season is upon us again, and with baseball season comes the ubiquitous Fenway Franks, overpriced beer, and nachos topped with electric-orange sludge. But fortunately there's more to eating in and around Fenway Park than those options. In honor of Opening Day for the 2014 season, here's a round-up of reliable dining options within the stadium, as well as recommendations for great meals waiting just beyond the Green Monster.

Inside Fenway Park

EMC Club: Serving brunch for day games and dinner for night games, the Club features appetizers and salads made with local ingredients and main plates including burgers, chops, steaks, a lobster roll and a selection of over 30 wines. There's also a business casual dress code for those who like to dress up for the ball game. [EMC Level]

Absolut Clubhouse: Located by the dugout, the Absolute Clubhouse serves appetizers like "nacho average nachos," salads, sandwiches, and most importantly, ice cream sundaes served in souvenir mini Red Sox helmets. [Dugout]

The Bleacher Bar: It's situated under the bleachers with a view of the field, but no ticket is required; enter on Lansdowne Street. It's one of the only local spots to get a Beef on Weck, a roast beef sandwich popular in Buffalo. In fact, the majority of the menu is sandwiches, both hot and cold, along with some typical comfort food snacks. [Lansdowne Street]
