Entertaining for the kids

We were looking for a fun dinner out with our niece and nephew visiting from Ohio. This place was perfect and really kept the kids fascinated. Unique atmosphere that has different themed rooms, crazy decor with things like a carousel and school bus you can actually dine in. Their salad bar is... read more

I'm always looking for a place that can accommodate large groups. With a reservation, this place can handle a large group. The food is average and the personality of your waiters makes a big difference in how much you enjoy the experience. Go with an open mind and the intent have a lot of fun and you'll love your trip.... More

We had a group of 18 and had a blast at this restaurant! All of the characters were very friendly with the kids, offering autographs if asked. So many different themed areas, we all ate inside a school box. Other areas include an Apollo module, Charlie Brown pumpkin, a hut, and lots more! Entries are around $29 percolate which includes...

The food here was lackluster and the waiter was super cheesy. We couldn't even enjoy our drinks as they didn't taste that great either. With the amount of children in the restaurant its more of a Chuckie Cheese knock off than a place for entertainment. Maybe its fun for the kids otherwise go some where else.

We ate here for lunch on July 4th, and Blossom (power puff girls) was our waitress. The kids loved her, and we thought she did really great! She kept in character the entire time, and was good with the kids. When we got there it wasn't busy at all, but as we ate, more people came in. The décor was... More

Salad Bar? No, try the Salad Car. Would you like a booth? Well, how about one in a mushroom? Or a house made of crayons? And the server? Maybe Super Man, or Sleeping Beauty, or GI Joe! This fun place has good food (not 5 star, but solid and tasty), fun (but not always fast) service and a good salad... More

I have been to the magic time machine since I was a teen, now I have teens. They used to have characters with character and that entertained you. Now they are BLAH!!! They used to have these home made croutons, no more. Salad car was not replenished. Food mediocre. Disappointed.

This is a great a place to go with kids. I have taken my kids here for years and it is a destination eatery. The food is good, not great. The steaks are the best thing on the menu ad are actually not bad. The décor is a bit dated. It is not a fine dining experience. BUT... it is... More

The reviews made me suspicious of our birthday party scheduled for here but it was a treat for all of the children and adults. The food was better than expected for a venue whose focus was entertainment. Was not expecting the magician and balloon artist that worked for tips at our table but their entertainment value was worth the tips... More

Poorly done, marginal food, marginal service... Chick-fil-a on kids night is a better experience. Better foo dtoo.
