Second time here with our family of four. Can't beat the value. Food is great, service good, ambience is great for families. Nut free ice cream for our youngest. This is not a romantic couples restaurant or a fine dining experience. Will be back with the kids for sure.

I have been here before so I knew what to expect. It has actually been ten or more years but really not much has changed. There were about 12 of us at a long table. The decor is antiques. We sat in the room surrounded by carousel horses. You were kind of squished in at the table and if you... More

I decided to bring a friend that was visiting from out of town here because it is usually a very good place to eat. However, our experience this time left a very sour taste. The 'antique elevator' table is probably the best table for two in the entire place. It is rather cramped, but where else can you have dinner... More

The children were entertained by the experience. The food was acceptable but expensive for the quality. The kitchen needs to step up on freshness of salads.

Hello We get there at around 6pm ish. Very busy and a wait of 45 mins. Well I actually fell in love with the decor. There was a kool guy named Al making balloon goodies for the kids. So we decided we would wait. After a full 45-50 mins they call us over to be seated. Well you think that... More

My husband and I and three children ate here. The service was exceptional ...Fast, friendly and accommodating. The prices are excellent. 5 of us ate for $60. The food is good, and the experience is wonderful! We would definitely eat there again.

If you are going to OSF for the experience please don't expect much from the food itself. This institute is fun to visit, but the food taste, quality, temperature and portion size left much to be desired. (they did have gluten free choices but clearly did not actually try their GF pasta. It was way undercooked and disgusting!)

although it would appear that this establishment would provide excellent food and service, it does not ! We had a group of 10 and were very disappointed. One of our party members serving of pasta was so small our mouths dropped. The child pasta that my child received was 2 times larger than this order. We asked to have something... More

I've been a couple of times. They always offer good food and generous portions. The decor inside hasnt ever changed but its beautiful and fits the theme. The waiter messed up the order a few times because he was running around like a maniac serving many tables but he was very courteous. Overall we enjoyed our meal and would return... More
