Pretty decent food and a great view of the large tank inside the aquarium. This little cafe is about 3/4 through Ripley's Aquarium of the smokies. The selection is traditional cafe food of sandwiches and burgers. The food is ok but nothing really to write home about. The best part about it was the free hat and the view of... More

When you get half way through the aquarium you will come to the Feeding Frenzy for a quick rest, lunch/snack. The food is okay, and the price is typical of any attraction. If you get drinks do get the refillable cup. It can save you money and you can take your drink with you, otherwise drinks and food are not... More

Pre-mixed food (at least for the philly cheese-steak). I ended up buying a kid's meal. The fries were nice and crunchy though.

The atmosphere was great as we got to see them feed the sting rays. The this wasn't that great and a bit overpriced for us.

The food is good and at reasonable price too. My favorite part about the Feeding Frenzy Restaurant is that it is right next to the sting ray tank.

It is what you call perfect product placement because you have to go through it to finish off the aquarium, but it isn't necessarily a bad thing. I normally get the french fries when I eat here. and they taste wonderful.

Pizza and ice cream. Enough said! It's a perfect place to get a quick bit of food and have the kids watch and be entertained. It's crowed, but for a quick-bite of kid's fair, it's good.

Food is pretty good, we had fish sandwiches which were good. Prices are little high but that is expected in an attraction event.

We got a pepperoni pizza, 2 pretzels, and drinks and it was about $40. It is cheaper than what you pay for food at Dollywood, and if you time it right you can sit and eat while the dive show is going on. They have a lot of options, but the pizza and 2 pretzels were more than enough for... More
