We arrived early lunchtime and found the service was very good for our group of 4 children and 4 adults. Food was fine, however this place isn't really all about the food--It's about the experience and something special to do with children/grandchildren. There are several aquariums, a scavenger hunt list and many automated creatures to keep the kids happily occupied.... More

It's a cool place to take the kids, they will love it. Adults expect average food, putting out money for fossil hunting etc. Service not great, expect to wait and the noise level is very loud.

We took our kids (4) here to eat while visiting. Loved walking up to this place and seeing the dinosaurs! When we walked inside, it wasn't very busy. No one was in line to be seated except for us and it took about 10 minutes before anyone came over to seat us. After we got to our table, which was... More

This is similar to rainforest cafe but with a dinosaur theme, very cool moving Dino's and other animals. Lots if large fish tanks. Food is just above average, prices average about 15/person. There are activities such as fossil hunting for kids but that all comes at a price. It is very loud. Service was average. We waited 45 mins for... More

Food was nothing special but it was good. Waitress was very nice and helpful. Kids loved the dinosaurs and aquarium. Fun time. Everyone should take kiddos at least once.

When my son talked us into going to dinner here, I expected cheap kiddie oriented food and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious everything was. The staff was fabulous and made the entire experience so much more fun. It was a bit pricey, but was also one of the highlights of our vacation.

The food here is horrible - it's the frozen crap your kids get served for school lunches. And it's way overpriced. Our server was good. My son loved the Build-A-Dino and all the special effects....

The food is good. But, the atmosphere is not as exciting at this location as it is in Downtown Disney. Friendly staff & good service. A bit pricey, as to be expected.

If your kids love dinosaurs this is a magical place to walk through. There is a fossil digging area that will keep kids entertained and a Build-A-Dino which is like a BUild-a-bear only with dinosaurs. The downside is that the food is horrid and expensive. I would eat somewhere else but come for dessert so you can experience the fun... More
