“Felt gouged”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Edy's ice cream is good. $4/scoop is overpriced to sit in a loud, faux '50s diner setting. Tried to have a slice of pizza. Was told all the pizza slices had gone bad and we had to wait 10 minutes for a new one. Simply not practical with hungry kids. Oh, and while I was trying to order someone bought a single tootsie pop...for $.48 since it is sold by weight. ugh

“Friendly, Family Friendly, Fun”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff- my youngest sister made a friend by the end if the night. Resort prices, but great food and huge portions. Very family friendly, and besides having food, they have I've cream and wall to wall candy. We went several times during our stay.

“Convenient but pricey”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

We found this adorable place near our room and decided to check it out. Fun place to hang out, but ice cream and candy were pricey. We asked for one scoop of ice cream and it was truly a "baby" size! We were surprised for what we were charged.
