Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre Restaurant is a Unique Dining Experience

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios must be the most unique dining spot in all of Walt Disney World. It’s located right at the end of Commissary Lane.

The theming makes for a unique dining experience. Overall, it was a fun time for my party. The restaurant is dark but the lights inside your car booths are bright enough to see your meal. The shorts and movie clips that play on the big screen are also entertaining. I will say that the menu is a bit limited but... More

For appetizers we had onion rings which were decent. We then had the popcorn treat which was interesting. I wasn't a fan of the soup but the wings were good-- hot though. I had a plain cheese burger and fries which was good. My husband had their speciality burger and loved it. Their shakes were really good. For dessert we... More

One of our favorites at Disneyworld. You eat in a car that is situated in a drive-in theater. Old Sci-Fi movie clips play for the entire time you are there. Food is always consistently good. Onion rings are fabulous. Sandwiches are the best value and best food. Service is good. It's a cool place to take a meal break on... More

Every trip to HS includes a visit to the Sci-Fi. It is dark inside and set up to look like a 50s drive-in. The food is fine, but yiu go there for the atmosphere. After a few hours in the hot sun, it is a welcome relief to spend a break inside a dark, cool restaurant. Because of the way... More

cool ambiance, back in the 50's with old sci-fi movies. The children liked to watch small sequences of some funny movies like the attack of 50 ft woman... The food is ok and the service is fast enough. The turtle cheesecake was great. Absolutely need a reservation since very popular. Bit expansive for the food quality, you pay for the... More

I read so many great reviews of this place that we had to try it on our recent WDW trip. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. We made a reservation and were seated right away which was nice. There were only two of us, and they put us in the back seat of a 3 row car,... More

The theming is true Disney with seating in cars while you eat in a realistic drive in. About 45 mins of sci-fi clips play and being this was our first visit, we found it really entertaining. The portions were big and tasty. Previous reviews I read touted the ribs as a must eat so I had that with cole slaw... More

Our family loved eating here! The atmosphere is great. So much fun to have dinner sitting in the 50's car and watch an old movie! The food we had was yummy, not the best ever but the whole experience was fun and memorable!

The restaurant was fun for a one time experience. Although I knew I wasn't going to be very impressed, I thought my kids (14, 12 and 11) would love it. Well, they didn't. My daughter (11) couldn't get over the musty beer smell that came out of our "car", probably from the floor not being cleaned often, but it did... More
