I would not say it was the best meal that we ever had but it was a good experience having our dinner in what looks like classic car watching a drive-in-movie. I think everyone should at least try it ones. The staff and waiter Kyle were very helpful and accommodating. We wanted to go and see Fantasmic but our dinner... More

My kids thought this was a great place. They enjoyed seeing the old movies and ads and thought they were funny. The food is good and it comes fast. It is a good place to sit and unwind. My wife and daughter loved the build your own hamburgers and out Oreo shake was great.

I’ve eaten at this diner about 5 times now and it never disappoints. My husband and I last went there in January of 2015 and he loves this place as well. I always get the rueben. I’m vegetarian so I order it without the meat and it comes out great. It’s like a fancy grilled cheese sandwich. The food isn't... More

This was our second visit and I'd hyped it to my mom (it was her first visit). I was a little underwhelmed this time around. Our service left a lot to be desired. The food was pretty good and the shakes were outstanding. It was a bit expensive for what you get. The best part about this place is the... More

The setting here is very unusual. You are seated in convertibles in a dark room with a huge screen. There were 5 of us and we were spread over three rows of two seats . It is very dark and the movies screen continually. We all ordered burgers and shakes which were fine but nothing outstanding. It's more about the... More

The food was excellent. The service was even better. You sit inside a '57 Chevy convertible, which is pretty cool, yet rather cramped. I recommend.

The food is OK, I would describe it as a high end burger place with cute ambiance in old fashined drive in setting. Expensive but the food was tasty. There was nothing I didn't like, I wouldn't say it was worth the price but it was a good addition to our visit. Just adds a little Disney magic to your... More

The theme is very cool, I think kids would really like it but we thought it was just mediocre. It was hard to see because of the lights so dim and the table was very small for 2 adults. The food and service was good. It was a nice experience but we're not planning on visiting again.

Made reservations well in advance and even though it began raining and people all rushed in we were seated relatively promptly. Food was good but it was super memorable for the kids. We sat in the car and ate while old Sci Fi movies played on the projector. Very fun and worth the money!

You can't beat Disney for theming and Sci-Fi has some of the most original on property! Our family of 6 has always gotten a car to sit in, much to the kids' delight! It is very dark inside, but the lights along the table help. It can be an issue if you have several smaller kids since really only two... More
