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

My son and I both ordered the chili cheese fries, my eldest daughter got pizza and my youngest daughter got plain crispy fries. We all loved our food. Was delicious! I recommend the chili cheese fries. They are filling and delicious! We got to watch an underwater show while we ate as well.

The meal is a bit overpriced. Food not as good as you would hope (for $8 a meal). Seating is limited. It was dirty when we went and not well managed at all. Took us 15 mins to get our food which wasnt even hot.. we ended up throwing most of it away

While the view from the dining area was wonderful the prices were outrageous for what you get, and the food wasn't at all worth the cost. The fries were good but the cheeseburgers weren't anything special and my husband said the chicken sandwich was plain and didn't taste all that great. We will NOT be eating here again without some...

While the aquarium itself is nice, the "restaurant" is awful. The options were very limited, the portions were horrible, and the taste was not good. It's nice that the seating allows you to view the ray tank, but there is not nearly enough seating to accommodate people, especially considering the fact that many people were only watching the rays and...
