We've been to T Rex several times which usually has good service and good food. Today though was not their best at all. The service was very slow and the food was just bad. When quality issues were brought to the attention of the manager she did not seem very concerned about the plastic in the cheese sauce. In past... More

What a fun time !! Excellent service from RYAN, our waiter. He made it fun for the kids. Great attitude & energy. Our kids had to have their picture taken with him. Food timed perfectly with our visit back from the play/shop area. STEVE, manager of the play/retail section. Super friendly guy and great interaction with everyone. Kids really had... More

The atmosphere of this place is out-of-the-world awesome! My 4-year-old daughter was wide-eyed the entire time we were there. The food may be a little over priced, but it was worth it to see my daughter have such a memorable experience at a restaurant. We had nachos and a pizza and both were very good. Our "guide" was very nice... More

We visited the T-Rex Cafe while staying at Great Wolf Lodge. We had been there on a prior visit to GWL, and my kids loved it both times! The atmosphere is great, and we loved the food. Everyone ordered something they loved with little left on the plates. We ended it with a Chocolate Extinction shared by everyone at the... More

I took my daughter for our second trip to Great Wolf Lodge. As soon as she knew we were going, she asked if we could go to the dinosaur place again. We went on a Thursday for lunch. There were only a few people eating. We requested a booth and were seated immediately. My daughter had the kid pasta with... More

Food was typical Rainbow Forest type quality. Solid, but nothing special. Definitely overpriced, but you're paying for the environment. Unfortunately, the place was empty so we were in and out too quick. 45 minutes and $80 later....with a 5 and 3 year old....

This is an amazing place to bring the kids. The restaurant is decorated like something out of prehistoric times. Animated, realistic dinosaurs are scattered around the restaurant. Flames dance in the darkness of the corners and the sky seems to glitter. The kids are mesmerized and love it. On top of that, the food is good too.

We've been to the location in Orlando and done other similar dining experiences like the rainforest cafe - this location exceeded expectation. The wait was reasonable. The food was very good. The kids were given little hats and Dexter the dino made his rounds to visit with each table. Worth a visit especially if you've never been - I'd say... More

Our family, party of 8, went in the afternoon on a Saturday & were immediately seated. We all really enjoyed the atmosphere and decorations, especially the kids who were age 2 to 5. Got some wonderful pictures. Food was good for a destination restaurant and you go in knowing it probably isn't going to be inexpensive. Enjoyed the fish tacos... More
