Cool atmosphere, OK food. Servers & waitstaff don't seem to enjoy working there. Like others said, you're paying for the atmosphere not food or service.

Definitely enjoyed eating here! My kids loved the atmosphere- We ordered way too much food. Could have just split the sampler plate between my husband and I and got kids their own meals and we would have been fine! The service was awesome- we felt really welcomed! Wish we would have tooken more pictures.. You can't miss it! Would definitely... More

Very good place with thematic decoration with dinosaurs and pre historical animals. Food was very good and service also. I have eaten the Flat Iron Steak that was cooked perfectly at medium rare. Children have chosen Jurassic Chicken and Mac Cheesy (kid cosmo's) and they loved it. My wife picked up BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger and she also liked very much.... More

We actually just stepped in to check the place out and we were really impressed by the cool decor and fun theme. The build a bear workshop inside has lots of cute outfits. I only wish they carried a few of the non-dinosaur animals. Overall, it was a lot of fun.

The atmosphere here is astounding, and like nothing I've seen anywhere else. The kids simply love it. The food, though, is mediocre at best and is overpriced for the quality. I only go if I have a coupon.

Very fun place to eat. The kids loved the dinosaurs & fish tanks. Food was pretty average. Prices were on the high side. I don't like how they push the dinosaur cups. They are $7.99 a piece. The waitress asked the kids directly & they said yes, before we saw the price on the kids menu. Paid more for the... More

My kids are dinosaur crazy! This restaurant is awesome! The food is decent. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and kid friendly. They found the best seat for the dinosaur requested by my kiddos. Well worth the trip!

We had lunch at the T-rex cafe and my grandson loved this restaurant. We sat near a huge fish tank and it kept him entertained while we ate our lunch. The entire restaurant is decorated with sea creatures and dinosaurs and every half hour there is a meteor shower! Very fun!

Took the kids while in the area. Wasn't sure exactly how the visit would go after a scary experience at a Rainforest Cafe with one child a couple years ago (didn't like noises and animatronic animals). Got to restaurant and were seated immediately. Waitress saw our Great a Wolf Lodge wristbands and offered a complimentary appetizer, which was nice and... More

Come young and all! This wondrous travel back in time will thrill and chill you! The huge dinosaur at the door is just the beginning of what amazing creatures will be seen! Yummy morsels to eat and even meals. Then slip away to the Dino dig for the children, young and old. Walk into a miner's cavern with more activities... More
