Fun place to relax for lunch

We eat here every trip to Disney. Best Reuben sandwich in the parks. Great burgers and shakes too. The atmosphere is cool and the kids enjoy it. Service has always been good.

My kids were very excited to eat at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater during their first trip to Disney World. While the ambiance was very cool, and they loved watching the old movies while eating in a table car, the food was just "okay." It wasn't bad, but it wasn't very good either. It was very average tasting food for above... More

This is fun if you have little kids. If feels like you are outside at night and you are sitting in a car watching a drive-in movie. Down side is that if you are more than 2 people you really aren't sitting together as you are in rows of 2, like the front seat and back seat of your car.

This is a nice theme restaurant. It does feel like you are out at a drive in theater. The seating was odd for a family. You sit in a car styled table. Two in the front seat and two in the back. The speaker is mounted next to you so it is difficult to have a conversation with anyone or... More

The atmosphere was so cool. My kids liked sitting in an old car and watching movies while we ate dinner. My husband and I had the steak, which was okay but I really liked the horseradish mashed potatoes. We had the turtle cheesecake for dessert. So good. The crust in a rice krispie treat.

This is a really fun special themed restaurant. Seating in a 50's Chevy with tacky sci-fi clips in a drive-in atmosphere was a lot of fun. The gluten-free free menu is good. Can't wait to go back.
