The concept of the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is genius and I was extremely excited to eat here. I am happy I did, but I am not sure if I will return. The food is good, the milkshake is fantastic, the service was decent, but the atmosphere is the main focus and of course the best part. It felt so cool... More

Me and my bf had reservations here and were quickly seated in our car. The food in bf's opinion was "average, standard, kinda not up to my expectations for Disney". This was his first trip to Disney so I can understand his slight disappointment. We both got burgers and they were the quality of Red Robin's honestly, which isn't bad.... More

Our family always visits this restaurant everytime we go to Hollywood Studios!! you can't miss this experience so make sure you make reservations. They get completely booked and overbooked so your chances of just walking up and sitting is extremely small. The food is great , the salads are huge, burgers are real burgers, and they make a pasta dish... More

Booked well in advance. Went for early dinner. Long wait for table but worth it. Great traditional American food served in your 'car' in a moonlight drive in theatre. Very original experience, good old fashioned movie clips On a huge screen to keep us entertained. Food was simple but very tasty, particularly the burgers. Light up buzz light year clip... More

An unusual way to eat in a diner but the food was good although be prepared for a long wait to be seated unless you book in advance.

Recently had dinner at the Sci-Fi restaurant, concept is great, food was ok, glad we went. Service was very good. Place was full, people seemed to enjoy it. Our table was off to the side and in the back so couldnt see the screen very well. Will have to give it another try.

Stopped at sci fi for lunch with my son and was seated in the back of a car. My son was thrilled to be able to watch the old movies. The waiter gave him a license. We started with onion rings which were large and crunchy. My son had the popcorn chicken and fries, but was not thrilled by the... More

Did a get away here to go back in time. The old cars as seats and the big screen and atmosphere were amazing. More importantly the food did not disappoint.

I loved this diner!! My daughter-in-law booked this as part of my grandson's first birthday celebration. Yanet was great. She was pleasant, smiling and attentive during our entire dinner. I work in the hospitality industry and want to compliment Yanet on her service! Thanks, Yanet, you are Disney! You know the meaning of hospitality!!!

My kids loved this place! The atmosphere is like you are in an old fashioned drive in theater. There are picnic tables at the back and cars throughout. Crazy sci-fi move ads are on a constant loop. The food was decent. Great milkshakes. More than the food, is the awesome experience! I would say this is a must if you... More
