Between the Rinks Restaurant
After you’ve worked up an appetite on the ice, head up to Between the Rinks restaurant, which is located on the second floor of Great Park Ice. It is above ice rink 1 & 2 so you’ll have excellent views of the action below. It is one of Irvine’s best sports bars. If the ice rinks and TVs don’t keep your attention, there’s a foosball table and dome hockey game next to the wall of hockey pucks. Between the Rinks is definitely one of the best sports bars in Irvine.
When you get hungry, all of the food is made to order and very reasonable. Most of the menu items are easily shared. Don’t be shy about ordering more. Everything is very reasonable at $10-15 per entree.
The Outlaw BBQ flatbread was our favorite, but everything was very good.
