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

Okay....our group of six (3 generations) arrived after eight on a Tuesday evening. We planned to be earlier, but, road construction caused a big delay. There were only a few occupied tables when we arrived. The wait staff, dressed as various characters, provided a fun time for us. All of them were quick with a witty response and eager to... More

I'd heard this was a great place to take kids; it was far more than dinner -- it was an entertainment experience. Our server was Jessie from Toy Story, in full character, and most of the tables had a theme, i.e. Peanuts or Pirates or the Dunce Cap. We all ordered "magic potion" drinks (which come "leaded" or "unleaded") which... More

3 stars on this site is average. I would say it is above average, but it did not warrant a 4 star rating. Service: We arrived on a Friday night, it was crowded, but only had to wait 20 minutes for a table. The guy at the host desk was very nice and kept us up to date. We were... More
