Hostess tried to sit us at a table where we couldn't acces one side due to another patron sitting in the aisle and also a stroller in the way.....hello....use common sense and not let the customer explain what's wrong and right where you are looking. Had the lasagna which came in a hot bowl on a plate...with my salad sitting... More

We went here while visiting family. The same people that came up with the Rainforest Cafe came up with this place. It is too cool when you go in. Dinosaurs everywhere and they move and make noise. The kids loved it! We sat by one of the large fish tanks also, so they were entertained the entire time. The food... More

We were very Dissapointed in the service. We were told our wait time would be 45 min. We ended up waiting an hour and 10 min. We would see families leave but then it took forever for the tables to get cleared. When you are a restaurant as busy as this one, there is no reason for the tables not... More

This is similar to the rain forest cafe, but all Dinosaurs. It's a very cool place, and my daughter loved it!! Like RFC, it's also a little over priced and the service isn't great. I expected this going in, and knew that we were paying for the atmosphere (which was super cool)

It's a little pricey but you do get a good amount of food.. The atmosphere is amazing and your kids will absolutely Love it.. Tons of stuff to look at while your there.. They have a great dessert that smokes when they serve it to you and it's enough for 2 people!

The aesthetics of this place are off the charts. There are all sorts of dinosaur themed dining areas and the expected tourist trap of a gift shop. The food is okay and it took forever to get it. Our waiter was very nice and recognized that we had stopped over from Great Wolf Lodge, which qualified us for a free... More

Awesome place to eat and visit. They have many things to look at and see while waiting on your table to be ready. There is a gift shop to look through while waiting, they even have a dig area for the kids to play in(cost extra). There is also a Build A Bear area where you can purchase a Dinosaur.... More

It was a long wait but worth it. We had a great time. The good was ok. Pretty pricey but if you're going for the entertainment then you won't be disappointed.

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
