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

Kids love this place. Personally I think it is a little over-priced but then again it is not somewhere I would take the grandchildren to on a regular basis.

Recently my family took a visit to Kansas City and we decided to come over to the Kansas side to visit the outlet mall and we discovered this cool restaurant. The atmosphere is great, however, be prepared to stay for a while, it takes a while to get seated and the food is not delivered too fast. The good thing... More

My son loves this place. It is owned by the same group that owns Rainforest Cafe. I give it a very good for service and atmosphere. The menu has lots of choices for everyone in your party, but it is overpriced and not great. Save time and money for the Build-A-Dino.

We visited T-Rex last night to celebrate our grandson's fifth birthday with four kids, grandparents, and parents. We all found something to love in the decor and atmosphere. The kids, of course, were fascinated (and some were only a little scared at first) with the dinosaurs and gifts shop. I thought that perhaps this was a little bit too commercialized... More

This is a place which has a dinosaur theme and interesting decor. It reminds me of everything I didn't like about Rainforest Cafe, which was that the prices were outrageous and you were totally paying for the decor. We attempted to dine here but after waiting in line for over 10 minutes just to get seated when there were only... More

Service was GREAT, my two year old son did not know what to think of the moving dinosaurs... he loved to build his own dinosaur

Good experience, had family in from out of town. Atmosphere was good, lots to look at(be prepared for loudness). But kids enjoyed it. Be prepared for younger ones to do build a dino(22 Bucks) and gift shop so price will prob go beyond the meal. Food was good, kids food they enjoyed. Pricier obvioulsy, just think it is a place...

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
