Fun Food for all Types of Eaters


Our passion for nostalgic pastimes doesn’t end with pinball. The treats in our snack bar have their place in history too! The menu changes seasonally but always includes hotdogs, turkey dogs, chicken tenders, soft pretzels, popcorn and nachos & cheese. We dish out ice cream sundaes, root beer floats and creamsicle floats all year long. Warmer temps bring fruit smoothie parfaits while autumn calls for red velvet waffle trees and warm apple crepes.

We prepare everything on our menu with premium ingredients. We use organic tortilla chips for our nachos and make our sauce with cheddar from New England’s Cabot Creamery. No ooey-gooey chemical-laden cheese sauce here! Our soft baked pretzels are hand-crafted in Brooklyn, where they were first sold from pushcarts back in the 1880s. We serve only Hebrew National Franks made with 100% kosher beef and our turkey dogs are Applegate Natural. And all of our ice cream is Vermont’s original Wilcox. In fact, back in the 1920s the Wilcox family made their ice cream right here in Manchester!

We keep our beverage selection local too! Enjoy some of the Green Mountain State’s finest craft beers. There’s Fiddlehead IPA out of Shelburne on tap along with Citizen Cider from Unified Press in Burlington. Relax with an IPA from Zero Gravity in Burlington or a golden lager from von Trapp Brewery in Stowe. Try an original Long Trail Ale from Bridgewater Corners or a DragonWeiss from Outer Limits Brewing in Proctorsville. Sample a dark mild from Harpoon Brewery out of Windsor or a pilsner or red ale from Vermont Beer Makers in Springfield. Not interested in beer? You can always quench your thirst with a variety of non-alcoholic drinks. From maple soda to fair trade lemonade, you'll find something to satisfy even the finickiest person in your party.

And because community matters, every Friday we donate 25% of snack bar sales to The Community Food Cupboard in Manchester. Indulge in a tasty treat on Food Bank Friday and feel good knowing you're helping us to help others.
