Once upon a time, Priority Pass included access to airlines lounges like United. That fell by the wayside, but over the past few years Priority Pass has made up for airline club losses by adding airport restaurants to their portfolio. Typically you can get a $28 credit for yourself and each of your guests. You can lookup participating restaurants and lounges on their site.
In Cleveland I stop at Bar Symon and pickup a to-go bag full of granola bars, drinks, chips, and fruit for free thanks to my Priority Pass card.
In Tel Aviv you can get a 100 Shekel credit at Schmoozy Bar instead of going to the overcrowded Dan lounge.
Sadly, starting on 8/1, Priority Pass memberships issued by all AMEX cards will no longer allow restaurant credits, though they will continue to work at traditional lounges.
This is certainly a devaluation of the Priority Pass program. In Cleveland I can still access the Airspace Lounge, but in Fort Lauderdale for example there are no lounges other than the $28 credit you can get at Kafe Kalik.
