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

The atmosphere is really the reason for a 4 star rating. This place is really exciting for families with young kids. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had a somewhat large group and only waiting about 10 - 15 minutes for seating and the place was busy. The food however is just average and overpriced but I supposed... More

We had a great time at the restaurant with three kids under 12. The atmosphere is fun and the service was great. I would give it five stars except you have to pay $2.50 for your kids to play in the kid play area?!?

We have been here several times and now know what's good to order - I always get the sampler platter and love the coconut chicken & the quesadillas. My husband says the only good thing is the steak, he enjoyed his again this visit. For a cheap souvenir do the Dino dig area, better than the very overpriced gift shop.... More
