Changes need to be made. We sent our pizza back twice because it was burnt each time and hard as a rock. Onion rings are gross and they look like rings from Burger King. Seriously, this café and surrounding spots needs to come out of the 80s. Everything can not and should not be put in the microwave or taste... More

The atmosphere makes the meal. Quick eats in the comfort of the ski lodge overlooking the ice-skating rink and the bottom of the ski slopes. It's pizza and hot dogs at their finest!

We decided to grab a snack after doing some of the activities at Ober Gatlinburg. They have ice-skating and popcorn and a variety of other things. You can sit down and watch people ice skate and cool off if it's warm outside.

We were in need of nutrition. This was close after getting off of the tram. It wasn't bad. Prices are good. They take cards for payment. You order and then they call your number for you to pick up the food when it is done. It was quick. Nice seating to watch the young and old ice skating, and falling.

My kids loved the beef hotdogs, and they are very picky eaters, and pizza. Fountain drinks come with free refills. Definitely makes it worth it, especially on a really hot day.

Not impressed with this snack shop. Had chicken tenders, hamburger and meatball sandwich. The meatball sandwich had mold on the bun!. We took it back and they replaced it but do not want to eat there again. Slow service. Prices alittle high but what are you to do if you are hungry!. Ice skating rink in the center. I would... More

We grabbed some pretzels and nachos to tide us over until dinner. They gave us so much cheese on the nachos that we ran out of chips and still had cheese left over. I don't know if that meant that we got too little nachos or too much cheese, but we were satisfied with our snacks.

This was a surprisingly tasty stop for a quick snack. We were pleased with the quick service. We had the nachos - messy but good!
