Loud, but GREAT FOOD!

Our group of 8 used the Disney online dinner reservations. This got us seated on a very warm day rather quickly. Even though the restaurant was loud, which we expected with the dinosaur theme, it was a great experience. It was so nice to get out of the heat and enjoy a meal that was different than... read more

We are Landry's Select members and we love to eat at T-Rex! The food is far from the best I have ever had (better than Chili's or other neighborhood chains) but it's good and this restaurant has quickly become a tradition for every visit to Orlando. The service is great and the chocolate extinction dessert can't be skipped. The atmosphere... More

Overall, the place was great. The atmosphere is very kid- friendly, but the menu is pricey if you have a moderate to large family. There is a dessert on the menu that is called The Chocolate Extinction that I recommend. You will spend about 19.00 dollars, but it's large enough for 5 people or more.

The bar at T-Rex I a way to avoid the chaos and long lines of families. The optics of sea blues and the overhead octopus are really cool. The bar changes colors and U.S. created from an arcrylic wave design I highly recommend the appetizer sampler. Everything was delicious, but the bruschetta was surprisingly my favorite! You need a few... More

This was a fun atmosphere with lots of cool effects and dinosaurs everywhere. However, the service was disappointing and the food was extremely pricey. Our food came out cold and had no taste. Certainly not worth the money... ($33 for a flavorless steak and mashed potatoes)

We had a fun filled family lunch at this restaurant in Downtown Disney while on a 2 week holiday in July. We loved sitting under an iceberg and experiencing the meteor showers surrounded by many dinosaurs. So much to look at in this restaurant. Staff were friendly and fast. Food was a little pricey but of good quality and very... More

Visited this restaurant on our last day of holiday and had brilliant meal. Even catered for my son who has food allergies. Burgers were huge at good price. All the children made dinosaurs while we waited for our food. Great shop on site and all staff were really nice and polite. Wish we had found this place earlier on during... More

The decoration of the place is just awesome! The dinosaurs are so real and one of the kind! The special effect of the destruction of the dinosaurs with the meteors is just amazing you feel like you are in the disaster! The food is real good and the drinks also! Is a great place to enjoy with your family or... More

Really fun cool place. Dinos come to "life" every 15 minutes, lights dim down, & start to "attack" the diners!! Food great for us. We had heathy option stir fry chicken veg & rice. Kids had Cajun chicken burgers. V satisfied & not too expensive.
