It's only the third time I've seen a rink where you can watch a game in a warm setting and enjoy a drink (both alcoholic and non). Unfortunately we lost.

Each time we go there it is as if they are completely different. Sometimes we go and the food/service is awesome. Other times we go and it is so bad, we have almost walked out. They should probably reduce the menu and get more consistent cooks with wait staff that is more attentive.

This is a restaurant in the upstairs of an ice skating facility, but was surprisingly comfortable. Their computers went down and so ordering became a challenge for the staff, however they really tried their best to serve us all, and the staff were very pleasant. The food was surprisingly good, in fact I enjoyed it more that the meal I... More

Food is average at best. Most times we get poor service. My daughter figure skates here. We are often here at dinner time, kids are hungry. Or we are there from 9 am to 8pm for shows or competition. They have a captive audience. Many times i would rather starve.

Great pizza, salmon dinner, burgers and salads. Huge menu with reasonably priced food. Sports setting and large windows overlooks ice rinks. Service is always good.

Our times dining at Breakaway were faced with declining enthusiasm over the last several times, like that old joke about the jewish grandmothers complaining about the food (and in such small portions!). The food is seriously mediocre, even something as simple as pizza. You get the hint when the server is almost apologetic when delivering your meal. Youthful servers, very... More

This is a great place for dinner but it gets easily overlooked due to it's location. The food is good and we've always had good service. Last time we dined it was a little noises but that was due to several large groups due to holiday parties.

Until now I did not know you could screw up spinach/artichoke dip but they did. This usually has a cream cheese/sour cream base and is creamy on the inside with a brown-and-crispy-top. This had what looked like goat cheese ??? and there was NO warning on the menu that was not the expected spinach/artichoke dip. This was dry and TERRIBLE!!!... More
