Had a wonderful experience for lunch (reserved for around 11:00 am)! We were seated quickly and the staff were wonderful and accommodating. The food was great! We had burgers and they were on point! The atmosphere was just fun! My daughter loved it! Highly recommend, especially for an early lunch.

We did not have a reservation. We put our party of two on the list and got in within 20 minutes, just like they predicted. The environment is super retro and fun. There are several rows of cars that have dinner tables in them. Clips of old movies play as you eat. I got a delicious burger. It's probably the... More

My son and I really enjoyed the theming in this restaurant. He thought it was awesome to sit in a car to eat dinner. Food was affordable.... I had a burger which was ok not great but not bad. My son had chicken tenders which he said were good. We also shared a milkshake which was good. Our server was... More

My family and I made reservations for the Sci-Fi Dine-In and it was awesome. The location makes you feel like you're stepping back into the 50's. Our waiter Michael was just amazing. He was extremely friendly and guided us thru the whole experience. He gave us his suggestions as to what to order....and he couldn't have been more on the... More

I was thrilled when I was able to get a reservation at this cute restaurant inside Disney Hollywood Studios! It is every bit as adorable as the pictures show. Relive the days of the drive-in theatre while eating 21st Century cuisine! Amazing food. Fantastic drinks. They show clips from old science fiction movies while you eat--so much fun! The waiter...

We really enjoyed the Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater. The theme was well presented and bought back a lot of memories. The service was very good. The food was very good too. It isn't cheap but the experince and food were worth the price. The kids loved eating in a car.

The food here isn't great. It's standard grill fair and not great. Burger was dry and nothing special. Where this restaurant shines is feeling that you are actually outside enjoying a dine in movie. It is a lot of fun. The only problem with a bigger group is it's only easy to talk in twos as you sit in cars.... More

I would not have booked this restaurant if I knew how we were going to be seated... most of the cars/tables are two person rows (front, middle and back) so this is perfect for a two person date kind of place or if you have older kids that can sit in a row independent of you I'm sure they would...

First time here and I would definitely come back. Great kids menu with a wonderful chicken noodle soup appetizer. Kids loved it (12 year old boys). Very cool concept and we were in a car with a front and back seat. We had a really attentive server and that always makes things more fun. Burger was DElish!! You add the... More

This restaurant sounded like a lot of fun and ended up being very average. We arrived for our reservation and were seated in the "front seat" of a car with an empty "back seat". The cars are very cute and come in "two person" front/back seats (think like a traditional car) or lengthwise with regular chairs (think T or I... More
