My food was good (Reuben) but 3 family members ordered the steak and it tasted really bad. It tasted kind of how you would assume carpet would taste like. Milkshakes are great though!

I ate at the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater when I was at Hollywood Studios again. This was not my first visit. Ate there mainly because it's not as expensive as some of the A/C restaurants. I had a chocolate shake and salmon sandwich-- both were good. It's difficult to read the menu & the bill due to the lighting (lack... More

On our family trip to Disney, there were 6 of us ranging in ages 7-67. We had reservations at this restaurant on a busy day and time. Although we had to wait awhile for our table, we were cordially greeted and seated in a car with 3 rows of double seats. Upon entering the seating area, the 7 year old... More

This has quickly become one of our family's favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is fun, the restaurant is dark and chilly, sort of like a drive in theater would actually be. (Bring a sweater....it's chilly) Food was great, prices were only slightly elevated. This lunch we actually paid for, and did not use a dining plan. So, you always notice the... More

Our large group had pre-booked tables at the Sci-Fi Diner 3 months in advance of our trip. Arriving slightly early for the meal we were then kept waiting 45 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. With insufficient waiting space inside the restaurant lobby we were kept waiting outside in the Florida midday heat along with lots of similar... More

My sis and I are empty nesters who have been making our annual trek to mouse land. Now mind you we like our nice sit downs, but on this particular trip we had not made a reservation and by default we could only get in at the Sci Fi. And I'm glad we did! It was a hoot! It was... More

Sci-Fi is a Must-Do for us when we go to Disney World. We truly enjoy the food. I loved the Salmon BLT. Some of us had the Reuben, hamburgers, etc and we loved everything. The best part of the Sci-Fi is the atmosphere: Cool - Quiet - Relaxing and Delicious food. We always go for lunch to get out of... More

The food is pretty basic - burgers and fries and shakes but it's so much fun to sit in the little cars and eat while watching the old 'scary' movies. We hit this one every time!

The food was just average, but you don’t go here for the food you go for the atmosphere. It’s a pretty cool feeling to be able to sit in a Drive In movie theater from the 50‘s. They don’t have that many where I live anymore. Plus there’s no chance of being rained on in this one because it’s in... More

This is definitely a must do restaurant to visit if you spend a day at Hollywood Studios. The food here is enjoyable but the main attraction is the general atmosphere of the restaurant. It really is very unique and you feel incredibly immersed in the interesting atmosphere. As others have said I would advise you book a reservation if you... More
