From the time you walk in to the time you leave, the magic time machine is an event the kids wont forget. You are greeted with a face painter and ballon artist for the kids. The waiters are in costume and character the entie time. Food is not so good but hey we are paying to be entertained!

The only reason to show up here is if you have children or have to go to a child's birthday. The food is not only over priced but it's mostly terrible. I find myself mostly eating the bread. The menu has been the same for years and they don't even make an effort to improve the quality. You come here... More

Worst dinning experience in a long time. The lighting is so low it was disorienting probably so you can't see the food which was awful. The only highlight is the waitstaff which was pleasantly nice.

If u come for the experience, fine! Try to stay away from the food. We had their specials for the adults: mahi-mahi, tuna fish and shrimps. I have never tasted such bad portions made with these supposedly fine ingredients. Kids had chicken fingers, pastas and "chopped steak". The pasta was okay. The chicken fingers you could not bite (even when... More

The food was nit tgat good at all. I feel like I wasted $90, that i spent for dinner. The salad bar at best was ok and when it came to closing time it was taken down whether we was done or not. I had the catfish and it wasn't good at all. The people were not friendly and the... More

First off, all the bad reviews for this place are from people who didn't get the joke... expect to be made fun of & nothing is as it seems. If you love sarcasm, dry humor & over the top relaxed atmosphere, this place hits the spot. Food was amazing, and for the portions you get, priced very low. My wife... More

The Magic Time Machine is a fun place to go especially with kids. If you go into it knowing it's more about the experience you'll have a great time. The food is decent, hefty portions, but over-priced.

I wanted this restaurant to be so great! We went for a friend's birthday and I was disappointed. The food was really mediocre at best. I got one of their magic potion drinks and it really was just a Mai-Tai bubbling. It's not really my taste. Our waiter was almost never around. He couldn't remember whose food was who, our... More
