Big portions!

One of the best onsite places to eat. Offered larger than normal portions and the food was very good. Grab a seat by the window and you can watch park goers getting soaked on some of the water rides :)

I was visiting with four generations in tow, the youngest being five years old. As stated before they don`t skimp on the portion size of meat. They serve hamburgers, chicken and ribs, and they are all taste alright. But the portion of vegetables are a little small, maybe except for the corn on the cob and french fries. They`re not... More

My daughter and I recently had lunch at the Thunder Falls on our first day at Universal. We ended up both getting the $19.99 deal, which included an entree and drink, and then an additional snack and drink to be used later. Let's face it, we knew were eating inside Universal so our expectations weren't that high. But the restaurant... More

Portions sizes are excellent. I had the Rotisserie chicken salad and it was wonderful. Lots of chicken, pecans, dried cranberries, etc. with a citrus dressing. Very refreshing. My husband had the 1/2 Rotisserie chicken with steamed vegetables and roasted corn on the cob. Prices were very reasonable, mine $10.99 and his about the same. The key lime cheesecake it also...

This is a must-eat location after the Jurassic Park River Adventure. Servings are dinosaur-sized and the ribs, corn on the cob and roasted garlic herbed potatoes are delicious. Save room for some chocolate cake!

Another great place to eat, drink and chill. As with most of the theme parks, food is secondary to the atmosphere. Still, good value and more than pleasant food.

Dined here with my family for lunch after a trip on the Jurassic Park ride. Great theme running through the restaurant. Caveman food!!! It's fast food with a twist as it's ribs, rotisserie chicken, corn on the cob, BLT wraps etc. Large central dining area has a viewing area by the big drop on the JP ride, and is designed... More

Because of the reviews we tried out the Mythos restaurant in Islands of Adventure but I must say I enjoyed the food better at Thunder Falls Terrace better which is located in the Jurassic Park area. I felt it was a better value too with comfortable seating. We ordered chicken that came with two sides. There was 2 large pieces... More

My friend and I visited Universal twice in the time we were in Florida and we had eaten at this restaurant the last time we were there 2 years ago so of course we made a beeline for it again. The first time I had the chicken and ribs and they were yummy with sides of sweetcorn and potatoes. We... More
