The food was not bad, a little pricey for the buffet. The staff was under staffed the day we went, so it took a little longer for our drinks than it normally should have.

We went to Zehnder's Splash village over night before school starts. When we got to the hotel, we decided to go for a late lunch at the Elf Hallow Cafe. I have 5 kids 20, 14, 11, 7, & 4. Anyhow, the food was decent. I ordered a chicken BLT, and it came completely wrong, but by the time the... More

My friend took me here specifically for the Hazelwood and it did not disappoint! It's a turkey and bacon sandwich on a croissant that is absolutely delicious. Also, the fries are some of the best I have ever had so make sure you get those too. Pricing was moderate and atmosphere is VERY basic. It's really just a snack bar... More

We had snacks and breakfast from the Elf Hollow Cafe. Pretzel Bread, Mozzarella sticks and chicken tenders were a hit with the kids. Food was made to order which was great as it tasted fresh and was served nice and hot. Breakfast buffet was okay but was quite busy and the food choices were mainly greasy (waffles, pancakes, donuts, scrambled... More

There is something for everyone in your group at this breakfast buffet. I am not sure of the price as it was part of our package, but we highly enjoyed it! They even had strawberry topping for the pancakes / waffles!

On our trip to Zehnder's, we opted for a take-out pizza from the Elf Hollow Cafe to bring to the room. The service was very prompt, and for being at a water park, the price was quite reasonable. It was an economical way to feed the family lunch and was quite good as well. I have had better pizza, but... More

We wanted dinner before we hit the waterpark after check in.. Came here. Kids loved their hot dog and grilled cheese. The shrimp tacos were great. Queso Dip hit the spot. The elf bread was good, little greasy(but I prefer that) It was quick, quiet, and everyone was happy..
