This restaurant has been around for many years and is starting to show its age. I believe the adult menu ranged from $15-$25 for entree and the food is average at best. Kids 14 or younger would enjoy many of the characters, but I would find another option since the food is so over priced.

This is a fun place with theme wait staff. The kids love coming here, especially when we get one of the cool tables like the acorn. It is pricey, and large groups like school choirs and bands can't really sit together.

The food wasn't anything to brag about. We went to the location in San Antonio and had a blast. So we thought we would try the one in Addison for my son's bday. We had to make our own fun, the people were very dull. The arcade sucked, was not impressed at all.

Went here for my 11 year old boys birthday. He and my other children LOVE the environment and service! We had Captain Jack Sparrow, and he played the part well!!! The restaurant does seem a little old/musty, but this is easy to look past. The food was excellent, and the salad bar is great!!! This is the second time in... More

So if you haven't figured it out, the deal is the decor is cooky (though I agree a bit outdated and the lobby smelly like my grandmother's house), some of the dishes are exciting (like the smoking bubbling drinks), and the servers dress up as parodies of beloved characters from movies and TV. We had Ariel for our server—she was... More

Went there today for my sons birthday. Our waiter was great. Jack Sparrow actually saved the experience. We walked in and there was a not so great smell and then They sat our table of 6 in a pretty small booth that was not very lit. Our food was not wonderful but the kiddos liked theirs. I got the superman... More

The unique outfits are great for younger ones. The overall conditions of the interior are dingy and run down. Carpets need replacing or cleaning. You notice how dirty they are in the lobby looking under the couches and seeing the shades of color. Walls need to be sanded and refinished in places. Wall materials are frayed and falling down or...

Each Magic Time Machine Restaurant is designed slightly different from the next, so if you have been to one, don't expect the same tine at the next. The restaurant near Dallas is set up with enclosed tables which is pretty cool as they all have different themes. The staff is all costumed and they all remain in character for the... More

Fun and festive, with kind staff. Needs to be updated and the menu revamped with improvements. Fun characters and a good ol festive time.

Took my 12 year old last year for her birthday and there was this musty smell when you enter. The waiter was terrible and didn't play the role of his character. I expected better food, so all around it was a big let down. We won't be back.
