Good option for a quick snack or lunch on top of Skyline, prices are reasonable however the quality is not as good as you would expect for a restaurant sharing the same facilities/staff as Stratosfare.

The food here is glorified takeaways with an exorbitant price tag. I would not recommend eating here as you can pack a lunch and sit in the same area with the same view for a much cheaper price.
