We went with another family, and all the children ages 8-16 had a lot of fun. Some of the dishes were tasty, some were just weird(grilled chicken instead of breaded for chicken Parmesan is odd)...the salad bar was less than enticing. The bottom line is that your children will love it and the adults will leave this super cheesy place... More

We just had our second visit to the Magic Time machine. We were there with 7, 10, and 12 year old kiddo's. The wait help was very entertaining and really hammed it up. The staff was very accommodating... Thanks! We came wearing our own costumes just for kicks, and the Riddler and Belle put the middle child to work! That... More

We had not been to the Magic Time Machine in years, so decided to go give it a try again. The Mad Hatter brought us bubbling drinks and a Roman orgy so big we couldn’t finish it. We enjoyed our meal very much, but if you are looking for 5-star dining this isn’t it. It is however, a fun place... More

This wildly heralded, good-time, unique, food bazaar is just that, bizarre! It is a whole lotta mis-matched characters, some relatively charming ones, laughing, playing and attempting to sloooowly serve you mediocre food. There's a lot of distraction such as magic shows (extra cover), colorful drinks (expensive) and fortune telling (didnt even ask). Food here is not great. The salad bar,... More

We really enjoyed our visit here while on vacation. The grandchildren always love this one. They enjoy getting the autographs from the servers. The servers make the evening very fun for the whole family.

This restaurant was really neat...there was so much to look at neat little nooks to sit in. And the staff dressed up just added to the ambiance, our 7 year old loved it! The food was actually pretty good too.

This is a great place to spend an evening for fun with your friends. The food is Ok, however the atmosphere is spontaneous and ever so intriguing. A great place for children and friends to spend an evening together. Would recommend at least one visit.

We had dinner there for my mothers birthday. I enjoyed your experience very much. The waitstaff are funny and I like that! Our server was a young lady names Frankie and she did a stellar job! The Restaurant Manager even checked on us to see if we needed anything. The staff brought out a piece of cake for my Mom... More

We took our grand daughter here for her 18th birthday. We were expecting a fun time with good food. We ended up getting nothing close to our expectations. The service was slow and annoying. The food was well below par for the price.The appetizers seemed like something you would buy from the Wal-Mart frozen foods department. The dinners were terrible.... More

We ate inside of a bus. It was a neat experience. I did order dessert for my meal and I got it when everyone was done eating. But besides that I would recommend this place to anyone with kids.
