Having done the 50s Prime Time at the last visit (excellent), we were keen to try this out as it appeared to be in a similar vein. It's not and whilst it might appeal to those who don't want to see what they're eating, don't mind two seaters (family of 3 are seated apart) and the no more than 30... More

Kids loved sitting in cars and watching movies through dinner. Atmosphere is a bit dark and creepy but the good and service were good. Next time I would splurge on Brown Derby for a better family meal if you are at Hollywood Studios

Even if you book this restaurant be prepared for a huge delay when you arrive. Despite reserving our table with plenty of time to eat before a show at Hollywood Studios and turning up 10 mins before our time slot as suggested we were still subjected to a 40 min standing wait (as were a lot of other customers) leaving...

Not sure why people are saying the food is nothing special. We all loved our food and milkshakes. My husband had the steak, my daughter the ribs and I had the turkey sandwich. Everything came up hot and tasty. Service was very good. There were 4 of us in our car and they put 2 strangers in the back seat... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere with old movies playing as you sit in an old car to eat. The restaurant was nice to try once but not sure we would go back. The food was just ok. Pick this one for the surroundings not the food.

This is one of those Disney restaurants that everyone should go to at least once (like Biergarten) for the fun atmosphere, but not necessarily the cuisine. That is not to say the food was bad. We had dinner here. Kids had a very difficult time choosing anything because the menu is pretty limited. Burgers and steak and a sandwich or... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and it is lots of fun to visit it at least once. It is so cool to sit in the convertible cars and feel like you are eating at a sci fi drive-in! My 3 year old was a little scared because it was dark and some of the sci-fi clips were scary for... More

My kids love sitting in the cars and watching the funny film clips. Be forewarned it is very dark inside, can't really see your food very well! We really love the burgers and shakes and it's a cute experience. Highly recommend you try it!

I loved the restaurant, but the food was just ok. Nothing very special. It is worth the visit just for atmosphere, especially if you have kids.
