Frosty’s Fun Center

Under New Management! ...or so we were told. Frosty's seems to be a once lovely place that time has left to go to the wayside a bit. Their miniature golf course is badly dilapidated and in dire need of some upkeep and repairs. I'm guessing they need an influx of cash to get it going. It certainly seems like a place that could be very charming and wonderful with a little work. Frosty's is a winter/Christmas themed golf course and snack stand with an indoor seating area and some arcade-like games. My adventurer and I stopped by here twice on a recent trip to Holiday World. Frosty's is within walking distance of the Santa Claus Hotel where we stayed and only a stone's throw from the amusement park. Figuring that they catered to Holiday World tourists we were caught off guard by the employees who were baffled by the fact that we were out-of-towners. A counter clerk even said, "I don't know you" with a surprised, yet affable tone. To generalize, everyone in Santa Claus was incredibly friendly. Frosty's was no exception. Ice cream and pizza seemed to be their specialties in terms of sustenance. They had some intriguing and rather delicious ice cream options. The pizza could use some work. But, if you're a little worn from a day at the park or a long drive to the middle of nowhere, Indiana; this is a quick and easy stop near to the nearest hotel to the park.
Frosty Fun center hasn't melted away. We will be opening soon with new owners. We will have new and improve menu. We will have soft serve ice-cream and we will still have hard dipped ice-cream too. Our pizza line is even better too, with fresher dough and better quality toppings. So keep in touch on Facebook for our opening date.
We had a great time at Holiday World and was looking for somewhere quick to go! The food is great but the eating area is small. They also have (free) miniature golf, which is a little run down but you can't beat free. It's really hot inside with the oven and difficult if you have sensitive eyes. But overall not a bad place.

Here is my review in a nutshell. There is a full bar and a restaurant at St. Nick's Restaurant. I'll rate each separately. The bar is AMAZING!! Great, festive atmosphere. Reasonably priced, and bartender Larry is a great mixologist. I love hanging out here. Bar gets a great, social group of people. FUN! The restaurant is OK. Service is fair, food is marginal, decor is more-of-the-same over the top Christmas fare that the rest of the Hotel sports. Yes, the restaurant is downstairs, so there is not a lot of direct light. That said, folks need to realize that dining options in the general Santa Claus area are LIMITED. You can either drive 25 minutes northward to Jasper to get what you want, or you can get an OK meal at St. Nick''s. Need to set expectations accordingly. It's a few steps up from fast food, but it's not the Ritz Carlton. Bar = 5 stars Rest = 3 stars
I'm a lunch regular since they have an all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar. The salad bar is always stocked and the lettuce and vegetables are always fresh. They have an excellent selection of dressings including no sugar/healthier options in packets which I swear by. Keep in mind this is your typical Southern Indiana salad bar which means more side salad options like potato, macaroni, coleslaw, etc. so don't be surprised when you have more of those options to choose from than the veggies. As for the service, I've come to know the employees and servers well but when I first started going they were always friendly, fast and accommodating to whatever I was in need of. Now I love them to death! The restaurant is good for larger groups or meetings as well. Always good to know in a small town. Full bar service as well.
We were very disappointed. While the service was great, the only option for food was a low quality buffet with few options. Since we already carried our stroller down the staircase, I felt awkward turning around. I wish we would have left though. The experience felt like attending a mediocre church potluck, down to the lack of decor.

Brick Oven Pizza

21 N Kringle Pl
Santa Claus, 47579
Reviews:
Food was edible, but barely. Window says "brick oven" pizza. I assure you it is not. When we went in, there were a couple pizzas out that looked like they had been there for quite some time, and tasted that way too. Chicken was decent, as was the salad. It was good enough considering the alternatives in town, but we will not be repeat customers. One plus was that they were willing to make us fresh pizzas if we told them what we want, fresh pizzas were hot but still not tasty.
If you are desperate for pizza this technically qualifies but that's it. The crust is like cardboard, the sauce is pure bland tomato paste although the toppings are passable. Forget this place. If you have an oven, go next door to Holiday Foods and get a frozen pizza. If you don't have an oven, go anywhere else. By the way, we asked for hand tossed because others recommended it for a better pizza. Brick Oven had no idea what we were talking about. Nothing "In the Know" here.
Stumbled across this place while down at Holiday World for a few days. It doesn't look like much on the inside and the first thing we noticed was a mediocre looking buffet. Since we needed some food to go, we ordered one of their specialty pizzas with barbecue sauce, grilled chicken, onions and green peppers. We asked for half without the peppers and onions and I thought it was pretty good. The sauce was sweet which is perfect for me and everyone liked it. The surprise for me came the next day when we picked up some ice cream on the way out of town. They had a decent selection and single scoops (which were very big) were unexpectedly cheap and really good. If you are leaving Holiday World and want a dessert for the ride home, head to this place where you can get three servings of ice cream for the price of one at Holiday World. The staff was also very nice as they helped carry ice cream to the car (as I was grabbing it for 6 of us in all). An added bonus is that they are next door to the best Christmas decoration store I've ever seen. It's a great place to check out while waiting on the pizza.
