Great place adults and kids alike.

We had a great time at The Magic Time Machine. Captain Jack Sparrow was our waiter - 2nd time we've had him. There was an hour wait but that was because we requested his table - and it was a Sunday night. I ordered the Eve's Cut Prime Rib and was told they were gone....but I marched Jack Sparrow... read more

After a long road trip from Baton Rouge to San Antonio, this place took away our exhaustion. We went with 2 other families, all with 4 kids below 6 in tow. Fun fun night. We had ninja as our server but Peter Pan and Pocahontas hopped in. I love that each table is separated like you get your own privacy... More

This to me is a must do restrauant when visiting San Antonio, especially if you have children with you. I love how sketchy it looks on the outside then how wonderful it actual is on the inside with all the characters hustling around. My husband and I were seated in a little private booth. Our waiter was Elrond, an elf... More

We have visited this place in San Antonio and Dallas, and recommend to all our friends. It is so much fun. My daughter loves to just walk around and get autographs. The staff really immerse themselves into their characters. The food is surprisingly good for a theme place. Great fun!

I have lived in San Antonio since 2010 and have always seen the Magic Time Machine restaurant. I just recently visited and the experience was far from enjoyable. Upon entering, the restaurant was not well kept. There was dust all over the floor and the restaurant was very dark. I understand that this is supposed to be a fun environment,... More

Ok, the food isn't really good and the booths look kind of dirty but the experience is worth it. The staff all dress as characters from books, movies or TV shows. We were there with kids (8 and 5), who loved it. Alice in Wonderland seated us, Pocahontas was our waiter and we had a constant parade of famous characters... More

Went to this place last night to celebrate 2 birthdays in our family. My 14 yr old daughters and my 41 yr old husbands. We had a blast. There were six of us that went. aged 11 to 65. We all had a great time. Catwoman was our waitress and she was very fun. All the staff are in costume.... More

A MUST-SEE! if you have kids, or dont, this place is awesome!! The staff dress up as movie/video game/fairy tale characters and are true actors and comedians! The decor is out of this world, and the food...muah!! Loved it! Well worth the price we paid for a table of 6 people. We ate there our first night in town, and... More

We went to relive fond memories my husband and I had from visiting the one in Austin as kids. This one was very sketchy on the outside and when you enter, all of the "Do Not Touch", "Do Not Sit" signs were not welcoming. However, once inside the dining room, we remembered how cool the settings and themes were when... More
