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! Hungry for a bite? You'll find hotdogs, turkey dogs, chicken tenders, soft pretzels, popcorn and nachos & cheese. Want to satisfy a sweet tooth? Try an old-fashioned ice cream sundae or root beer float.

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 all of our ice cream is Vermont’s original Wilcox. In fact, back in the 1920s the Wilcox family churned 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 Shacksbury hard cider from Vergennes. 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 Red Dwarf Ale from Drop-In Brewing in Middlebury. Or how about an Italian pilsner from Valley Craft Ales in Wilmington? Want a truly unique Vermont drink? Try a Silo Lavender Cosmo — the grain, syrup and lavender flowers are harvested locally! Not interested in alcohol? Quench your thirst with a refreshing non-alcoholic Pilsner from Zero Gravity or a Boylans soda from New York State.

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