Don't bother leaving the water park, the food is very good. If you are at Splash Village then enjoy the convenience, besides they have all the foods that kids love.

Very cool place for food and refreshments. You can order from inside the water park as well as from your room or go to the actual restaurant yourself. I was very impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the restaurant. Very efficient staff, relaxed atmosphere, and comfortable seating were a huge plus for us. We enjoyed a fresh made pizza...

I got 2 orders of chicken strips with fries for my kids. Not much food, not that good, and it was like $16 for the two of them. I don't mind paying for expensive "On Site" food, but I wish it was good.

The most amazing part of this breakfast buffet is that everything was extremely fresh and cooked to perfection: The fluffiest pancakes with choice of many fruits, syrup, fresh made whipped cream. I'm normally not a fan of breakfast pizza, but there's is the best I've ever eaten. There was no shortage of anything. The orange juice is fresh squeezed with... More

Had breakfast here as a part of a package. They had scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, bacon, pancakes, waffles, French toast, biscuits and gravy, breakfast pizza and toast and baked goods. The eggs weren't bad, but the biscuits were very dry and hard. The bacon was good, but the sausage could have been better. They also had fresh fruit, which... More

The food was fine for breakfast, lunch, and a snack. Nothing to write home about but good. The staff however was very friendly and made it a nice visit.

The breakfast buffet is the best deal around. They have everything you expect plus breakfast pizza and fresh squeezed orange juice. Fabulous 1/2 pound burgers for dinner, too! Pizza, mozzarella sticks and wings were all good! Staff was always friendly! Ask to try the Currant wine if you like sweet wine. It's made in Frankenmuth and tasty!

First off, the staff was super friendly and attentive. They were very accommodating to young children (i.e. getting drinks and food right away for the little-littles). Overall, the food was so-so. The drinks were good. Our pizza was under cooked so just be sure to ask that it is cooked though. The breakfast buffet was generally good - I recommend... More
