The rain was coming, we were nearby, and it was lunchtime so we stopped in. The only reason I give them a 2 is I am giving them the benefit of the doubt for the storm. Both the food and service were terrible, granted it was early in the season and I am pretty sure our server had never been... More

Not much more to say than the title. Before we went to Cedar Point and laid down over $300, we checked out the food options on their site because my daughter is celiac. This was the clear choice. But at 12;45 it was not open. A lot of other people came, discovered this, and went away highly disappointed, many mentioning... More

The criminally-overpriced food (as expected) means that a sit-down mean is rarely going to cost more than anything with counter service. However, there is a price for your time, and we waited 1:30 for two pizzas; no sense of urgency, and exceptionally unimpressive food.

Typical amusment park food. Big servings. Felt like most tables had wasted food left on them. Pizza not bad. The chicken wing appetizers was huge. It took four of us to finish.

We enjoyed the salad bar. It was a nice break from all the greasy amusement park food. It was a good value for amusement park food. The salad bar was nothing spectacular but definitely hit the spot.

We eat at Joe Cool Café every trip to Cedar Point because of the Gluten Free options. Our Son has several food allergies, and Joe Cools offers Gluten Free Pizza, or Gluten Free Chicken Tenders. This 'was' a popular spot at Cedar Point for people to get our of the Sun, sit down and have a pizza. Historically, it has... More

I'll start with the positives. This place is clean, bright and our kids loved the cartoons. The problem is the quality of the food. Mediocre at best. Salad bar was meh. We had chicken sandwiches that were better at fast food. Kids pizza was greasy and over cooked. The staff was confused and unfriendly. Loved Cedar Point amusement park but... More

This is a "sit down", full service restaurant within Cedar Point. It is a Snoopy themed restaurant that serves hamburgers and pizza. It used to serve Pizza Hut pizza but not anymore probably due to Cedar Point switching to Coca Cola products. The staff when we arrived seemed disinterested and not very cheerful. The restaurant was half full when we... More

We stopped in for lunch for our granddaughter's birthday. We are hopeful that more staff show up when the park gets busy. Our waitress was wonderful but had to bus, close out patrons and wait on the new patrons. What is great for children is that there are cartoons of the Peanuts gang on multiple televisions around the room for... More
