We arrived on a Sunday evening. There was a small line, maybe two or three small groups waiting, and many open tables. Obviously the crew was scaled back for a Sunday evening. The wait was around 30-40 minutes to get a ticket from the two ladies up front. They directed us to a third hostess. We waited another 5 minutes... More

Even though they didn't have a line, they still were on a 30 min wait, so check in, go shopping, then go back. The restaurant was good. You definitely pay for the environment and not the food.

The decor is about the only good thing I can say about this establishment. The service is extremely slow. We waited for over an hour for our food to arrive at the table. Over priced food with underwhelming taste. I would not recommend this place and recommend you find some place else to dine,

Service was very slow. Waitress looked like the only one the had for the night. Took forever to have order take, get refills and our check at the end since she was the only waitress. Food was ok and over priced. We went more for the cool atmosphere since we have s toddler.

Great experience. Food was good. Prices are a little high but the experience and great service was worth it.

The food was over priced and the service was poor. The server never refilled our cups even when asked nor did the server check on us. The children were the only reason we didn't make a formal complaint to the manager. If I am going to pay near $20 a plate and $8 per child plate, I am going to... More

Went here for my grandson's 3rd birthday. He was thrilled and had a good time. That was the sole purpose of our visit as we all had read the reviews and knew not to expect much. Some of the dinosaurs are well-worn and cracked since they've moved so much and their plastic skins haven't held up, but my grandson didn't... More

Had been meaning to go here with the kids for a while and eventually got time to go. It's a pretty cool place. Not universal or Disney standard but still the kids loved watching the dinosaurs move and make all the noise and the meteor show was good. Food was okay, nothing great but acceptable for the price. Worth a... More

I'll give this a 2 because of the service but nothing else. This is a cheap copy of the t- Rex cafe at Disney world. The dinosaurs aren't the same quality and don't move much, There are no fish in the aquariums but just a sticker of an aquarium on them that is peeling off. The waiter told us the... More

We took our kids here and they loved it, loved it. It is a great place for children who love dinosaurs. However, it was by far the worse service I've ever had at those prices!! Our server never waited on us. We had a reservation and it was on a weekday, the place was NOT busy. But after we ordered... More
