Around every corner... a neat surprise!

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!

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

An eclectic restaurant in an old converted school house with the wait staff dressed up I'm costumes. Arial waited on us. Service for our party of 23 was excellent. Food was fairly good, especially the brisket. The rest of the fair was so so. But the draw here is the venue, not the food. We ordered the "Roman Orgy" a... More

We took my two daughters (5&6), they talked about this experience for days! Our waitress was dressed as a power puff girl and she was great in character. Very bubbly! We actually received great service. The interior of the restaurant is nothing like I've ever experienced before. It is old, but it's so ornate and interesting I feel that the... More

I have fond memories of this restaurant from my childhood, and despite the fact that the place doesn't seem to have been updated or dusted in decades, I had an enjoyable experience here a few years ago. This time my God-daughter was having a 4th birthday so I invited her family here for dinner. I'm sooo embarrassed to have done... More

Our first visit to this place and the staff and employees really made it special. It was definitely the right kind of weird for my family! Glenda, our good witch server, was a thorough delight, and the random visits from the other characters kept the entertainment level high! The food was a bit pricey for regular visits, but the quality... More
