This restaurant is very cool! You feel like you are in the middle of a movie set! We had to wait a while for our reserved table, but there was a lady handing out popcorn and free water to make standing in the heat a little more bearable. My children (6, 8 and 11) loved eating in the 'car'! We... More

Loved coming to this restaurant! Very kitschy with the booths designed like cars, the room looking like the darkened skies of a drive in theater, with old clips of sci-fi trailers and old advertisements to visit the concession stands playing on the big screen, with artifacts from the 1950s on the wall by the entrance. For dinner I had gotten... More

Great food, in a quirky setting. The service is great, but the wait to get in will be long. We prebooked and still had to wait over an hour past our time to get seated. The only points to mention is that you may be seated with hitchhikers in your car, and if so they will be seated very close... More

We all enjoyed our burgers and the atmosphere of watching Drive-In movies. We didn't think we could find a better burger than Red Robin's until we came here. Absolutely LOVED the experience of being here. EXCELLENT food and EXCELLENT atmosphere! We booked our reservations 4 months in advance.

Hands down one of the most unique dining experiences I have ever had. The tables were made like cars where you sat on a bench seat with a table in front of you. The entire restaurant was like sitting at a 1950s drive-in theater, complete with 50s movie trailers and ads. The food was good, but the atmosphere was what... More

We were there for dinner. We had a reservation and arrived about 20 minutes early but they were so busy we were not seated until about 2 minutes before our scheduled reservation. It doesn't look like much from the outside and the waiting area was full of people, and not a lot of available seating. They did thoughtfully provide a... More

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is located in The Hollywood Studios Park at Walt Disney World. I've been here before 21 years a go. And I love this place! I almost didn't get a reservation even 3 months before our visit. I just waited for a cancelation. So make sure you book ahead. The restaurant is themed to make you... More

I thought this was great, I made reservations in advance for when we would be at the park, we had early reservations and it was busy already, the theme and idea of this is great, loved it.. wish we could have been in a car/table on our own, but understand they want to fill tables etc... the food was good,...

A great time for the family. Great food and a lovely dim atmosphere that sets the mood well. Great for all ages. I had the grilled chicken salad and it was the bomb. The staff were awesome. I had wanted to eat here for a long time. Reserve now.
