Every time we go to Disney's Hollywood Studios we make a reservation at Sci-Fi. The atmosphere is fun and you get to watch old clips. The food is always delicious! I did find service a bit slow this time but the atmosphere allows you to sit back and relax. A must do for every trip!

You enter via a thoroughly unprepossessing door in what looks like the back of an old warehouse! After a short wait you are then you are guided by your hostess to a cavernous room in which are placed diner booths in the shape of 1950's automobiles. On a screen at the front of the 'theatre' they are showing a loop... More

First off, the atmosphere is great. Fake cars for diner booths stationed in front of a movie screen that plays old sci-fi clips from movies and tv shows. It was fun and entertaining. I had the burger and fries with a great milkshake. The burger was excellent and the service was top notch. Its a neat place to dine that... More

We made reservations a few months in advance, or we would never have been able to eat here. The food is delicious, but the setting really makes it!

We had lunch reservations for my niece's 11th Birthday last week.. While waiting in line to check in, many people were walking away grumbling because there were no more reservations for the rest of the day here. If you're even thinking about a day or more a Disney, you MUST plan out your meals and rides long before you arrive... More

The food was delicious, especially the fried pickles. Unfortunately for us, our waiter gave our appetizer to the couple behind us and upon realizing his mistake, apologized and got us another one and an extra appetizer to make up for it. However, because of the mishap, our appetizers arrived after our entrees. Oh well. The food was still delicious, but... More

Be sure to make a reservation as the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater gets pretty crowded! The atmosphere, air conditioning, and service make this a great experience! It was a nice break from the hustle of the park. Most guests were quite while dining! We all ordered burgers! All the food was delish! Be sure to ask for a to-go drink! Our... More

Kids love this place because of the atmosphere and the unique dining tables. In case you haven't figured it out (not sure that is possible if your reading reviews) the tables are cars with booths. The "movie" is on a reel so if you have been here before or stay to long it doesn't change. I wish, kind of like... More

Love everything about this place. The food is great, the service is... well, Disney! We try to eat here for lunch at least once every time we go, if we can get a table. It's a great break from shows and rides, and you can watch clips of hilarious old Sci-Fi movies on a big screen while dining in what... More

We were at Disney for the first time since 2008 and we have liked the Sci-Fi for its atmosphere, even though the food was average. This time, the food was very good. They have a new menu and prepared everything very well for the nine in our party. Highly recommended.
