One of our favorite places to have lunch

My whole family loves dining here. The menu choices are limited but that is the case at most restaurants in the parks. I find it to be a relaxing place for a meal due to the fact that it's not loud and the lighting is subdued. Of course we all enjoy watching the kitchy movie clips and... read more

I do love this place. Is it more about the restaurant itself than the food...maybe. The combo just works for me! From steak to burgers, I have loved everything I have ordered here. The drive in movie theme is just too cool. It is hard to eat with very little kids, and the dark may scare them. The movie clips... More

We were a little disappointed with this restaurant tbh. First of all it's really dark like a cinema without the lights on. The screen shows a roughly 10 minute film of adverts for old cinema b movies on repeat which gets annoying after the third time. The cars are great but there is only a tiny light so it's almost...

This was our first visit, and as many others have said, the dressing of the location definitely beats the food and the service. We arrived at 12.45 for a 1pm reservation, and were eventually seated at 1.15 - not quite sure why the delay when the place was half empty. The setting is fantastic, the cars, the screen and night...

I was pretty disappointed by this one. The atmosphere is great, but that is where it ends. Meals were ok. You couldn't see them, which definitely took away from the eating aspect. Service was incredibly slow and the movies played on a loop. We were there so long, we watched the loop more than once. They took my daughter's food... More

After loving this restaurant on previous visits, I don't think Id go again. The food was poor. The atmosphere and unique dining is great but I do want the food to be appetising!

I know a lot of people don't mind the crowd levels and noise at the WDW parks, but my wife is one of those folks who can get overwhelmed by too many people, too much noise and so forth and she needs a break. Take into account the heat of the day (we can only go to WDW in summer)... More

This restaurant serves up good quality fast food. Burger, fries etc. Tasty desserts and cocktails with glowing "ice cubes" which look fab in the dimmed lighting of the restaurant. We were in the back of a car and had strangers in front of us but it wasn't an issue. You have you own small ledge(table) and everyone can see the... More

It looks like an old drive in movie theatre, you sit in cars to eat whilst watching old sci-fi movies. The portions are large the onion rings are massive. My daughter tells me that the orio milkshake is lovely. it is just a bit too dark we were struggling to read the menu to be able to order and had... More
