Good BBQ!

Having been to Islands of Adventure many times, this is one of our favorite restaurants in the park. There is usually little to no crowd, plenty of seating indoors and out, and a nice view of the waterfalls outside.

We ate ribs, rotated herbed potatoes and corn on the cob. Would have liked more sauce on the ribs, mango Bbq sauce leaves something to be desired. Some of the potatoes were underdone. Enough food in one plate to serve two guests, and they will give you an extra plate. Plenty of seating.

This is a nice quiet place to have lunch after long walks in the park. Good location with reasonably priced food. No lines or waiting times and plenty of tables to choose from. Ordered 2 pcs roast chicken with potatoes and corn on the cob with drinks. Decent food taste and portions. Definitely a good area to have a meal.

We bought Universal Dining plan and had lunch here. The ribs and chicken were lovely, great milkshakes and very clean. Very surprising for theme park food. Keep up the good work

There was plenty of seating with room between tables if you had extra items you were carrying with you. We received better food and more food for the money here than at another amusement park. We were able to dine inside and use restrooms right there for great convenience. We also didn't need reservations or find ourselves in long lines... More

By far the best and tastiest "theme park meal" in Universal. Ribs, chicken & whole sweet corn on the cob are so tasty and sat in Jurrasic Park theming with Thunder Falls outside is great

We were looking for something to eat other than burgers, pizza, and chicken fingers while visiting the park. A Universal guide book had recommended this spot and since we had already visited and eaten in the Harry Potter land the previous day, we thought we would try something new. The air conditioning was refreshing and the lines were minimal. Given... More

We always seem to eat here when we go. The food is okay for park food, nothing spectacular. The view is amazing fas it overlooks the drop on the Jurassic Park Ride.
