We arrived about 7:30 no reservation and were seated in ten minutes max. Our waitress was attentive and possessed strong voice to clearly speak above the NOISE. It's LOUD, BUSY , and perfect for kids and kids at heart! Tomato soup is good. And chicken salad yummy. The burgers are awesome and the kids rave about the ribs. We have... More

The food was very good (2nd only to the high end yachtsman steak house in my opinion out of our whole trip) much better than the the rain forest cafe at downtown disney. We had a great waitress and the kids loved the ambiance and environment. Would go back for sure.

This restaurant is full of animated dinosaurs, every 10 minutes or so the dinosaurs come to life, very cool! There is a huge ice wall that glows and changes color, pink, purple to blue. All ages, children to adults, were enjoying the atmosphere. My husband and I both ordered steak meals, they were both grilled perfectly and were delicious! We... More

This is your typical theme restaurant so be prepared it is loud and crowded but our kids really enjoyed it. There was about a 1.5 hour wait but they gave us a time to return so we could look around at other shops etc then return. When we returned at our time we only had about a 10 minute wait.... More

T-Rex offers a great dining option for groups with kids. The wait times can be very long even with a reservation so the bone yard play area is a great addition to keep tiny appetites from boiling over into fits. They get to discover fossils in the sand and parents and big kids can shop for souvenirs. The noise factor... More

This restaurant is very similar to the Rainforest Café with a dinosaur theme. A "meteor shower" takes place every few minutes bringing dinosaurs to life. As you can imagine, it is a big hit with little boys! Food is tasty and priced similarly to other Disney Restaurants---a bit expensive. This restaurant does accept the Disney dining plan and has a...

Visited for lunch during our recent holiday in Orlando. Very hectic when we arrived as although we had a reservation, we were asked to wait in a crowded area between the restaurant and adjoining shop for about 15 minutes. No seats were available. Once we were taken to our table, things improved. The restaurant setting is amazing, with different zones... More

Good portions and food was good. My 11 year old loved it, my younger son was a little afraid of the noise when all the dinosaurs start roaring.
