It is a good time for any age.... Food is good and costumed waiters make it even more fun. We especially like the prime rib.... Salad bar is great too.

A large group of family members went here for a child's (age11) birthday dinner. We were seated in the banquet room in the back of the restaurant. This area must note be used very often because the dust in the area was unbelievable. I couldn't quit sneezing. The salad "car" was pityful,although the over-priced entree was good. The birthday girl... More

With the costumed waiters & waitresses & the fun atmosphere, this is definitely the place to go for a good meal & a good time. Try the Roman Orgy & enjoy the show !Our grandkids & their grandparents all had a great time. Perfect for special dining occasions as well. One of our favorite U.S. restaurants !

We went to the Magic Time Machine for lunch and the service was great. Aerial was our waitress for the time we were there and she was in character the whole time. The food was also very good along with a good selection on the menu. The salad bar is a treat in itself. For some fun ask your character... More

This is a fun place to take a group. We haven't been there in at least 10 years. They had a lot of kids parties going on. Once that cleared out it quieted down. All the staff wear some themed outfit and act the part. Food was very good and drinks were great.

The kids liked it but didn't say they wanted to come back. Food ok and comes in huge portions but with huge prices. Theme is waiters and waitresses dressed in costumes and playing roles: Thor, Alice in Wonderland, Super Mario, Zorro. Ribs, chicken, pasta...

We dined at Magic Time Machine at 6:30 on Thursday night. Our party included a 10 year old two forty somethings and a 68 year old and we all absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is shocking, in a very good way. The staff are completely in character and made the entire evening (we stayed almost three hours) a total delight.... More

Atmosphere is good. Characters are charming and our waitress even looked like Katness from the Hungry Games. The drinks look a while to come out, but we were a large group of 16. When the food came out it was just ok not a lot of flavor. Prices a little high for what you get. Great for a time one... More

We recently visited this restaurant with a high school group. The main draw for choosing this restaurant was them being able to accommodate a large group. However, we did not fit into one space, and the bar was between our rooms. They also did not have enough tables and chairs set up for us. The next best thing about it... More
