3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a pretty long wait to get in, so we shopped around inside and looked around. Then we went outside to let the kids play while we waited. The food was mediocre - they were out of the fish and chips that my SIL ordered. My brother and I split the sample appetizer dish - the quesadillas that came... More

We went here for my sons birthday dinner. He loved the decor and build a dinosaur area. However; our service was mediocre at best. That sat our family of 4 right next to a huge group. We would not have been able to even move the chair back without bumping into the people behind us. We asked to be moved... More

Took my 2 boys aged 9 and 12 here for lunch. LUNCH cost us over $100 with tip! We won't return just based on the price but that said, the kids had a brilliant time. There is a gift shop too. Our waitress told us to go and look around whilst we wait for our food so we did, when... More

We used to tolerate the below average food, for the sake of the little ones in the group, but now that the beautiful aquariums have been replaced with murals, we won't be back. It used to be a neat and memorable experience. Sorry to see it change.

Well they say no reservations, yet when we got there they asked if I had a reservation. Huh? So, it was supposed to be a two hour wait. No big deal, I figured we'd just shop around a bit while we waited. Well, that would have been fine except the hostess said that the buzzer would only work in that... More

The T-Rex Restaurant in Kansas City is in the Legends shopping complex. This is a huge plus because there are tons to see and do and EAT. T-Rex is very similar to Rainforest Cafe but with the prehistoric twist. Everything is huge and theatrical, with lighting and smoke/steam and moving dinos every 10 minutes. A costumed dino character roams about.... More

This place is all about the show, your kids will like it, more than likely you will not. Everything is very expensive. Kids meals aren't horribly overpriced around $8, but the cheapest adult meal you will find is around $15 for a hamburger and a side. A block away you can get a better burger at Sonic for 1/3 the...

Okay, I understand the appeal of this restaurant is its atmosphere which is fairly cool. However, I just can't overlook the outrageous wait time for lunch on a weekday with hardly any others in front of us, the unappealing food (our kids ate about two-three bites) and the insane pricing. I think we paid more than $80 for our weekday... More

Made a reservation a week before our visit. We arrived five minutes before our reserved time but at hostess stand, no record of our reservation. I did take the name of the person whom made the reservation & mentioned her name (will not name her on here because it's pointless) all I got was a forced "sorry." Thank goodness we... More
