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

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.
