So this is a fun restaurant for a family. I loved the environment; the decor is cool. I had the meatloaf which was amazing. It is expensive but a cool treat for a special occasion.

We went to Kansas City for a short vacation and T-Rex was a must for our children and we also had one celebrating a birthday. They were very accomodating with our large group and the wait time was fairly minimal. Food was very good and service was excellent.

Fun place to take the younger kids. Lots of activities to keep them occupied, but each thing costs and adds up quickly. Fun place for a birthday party.

I just love coming to this place. There are moving dinosaurs everywhere. Each has a placard stating its species and information about it. Every 30 minutes, there is a meteor shower, the restaurant goes dark and the ice cave lights up. The decorations here are so fun, there is a giant nautilus and octopus and dinosaur fossils. The service here... More

The food is average at best though had improved last time I had to go there. It is a neat place for kids but not really beyond pre teen unless they have a huge dino crush. the drinks are expensive and the food is priced at the high end for what it is, someone must pay for the place. They... More

The prices are crazy. We ordered the steak and shrimp and wanted to sub out the steamed veggies for a salad...............that was an additional $6!!! For subbing. Also to just add it to the meal was $6 so we got the salad and veggies. All the plates seemed a little high but that is to be expected at a themed... More

Our family of 5 were in Kansas City celebrating our 11 years birthday at Great Wolf and decided to go out to the T-Rex for dinner. The restaurant has a unique environment and is neat to see but that is it. Upon arriving we were told the wait was 30-40 minutes. It was already 7:30 and everyone was hungry so... More

Waited 2hours to be seated even though the restaurant was damn near empty. Asked to speak to a manager, who had no explanation as to what was going on. Food was ok, even though they didn't get our order correct plus it took forever to even get our food. The only thing good about this restaurant was the dinosaurs, everything... More
