Very entertaining, we had Lady Gaga, she was great! The food was delicious and the salad bar is very fresh.

Our family met to celebrate two birthdays and a wedding anniversary here and we were not disappointed! Truly a unique experience from the unusual eating nooks, entertaining character wait staff, and giant banana split dessert.....to the smoking magic potion drinks! A roving photographer even took a remarkable group picture to mark the occasion. It was a bit pricey, but "Buddy... More

I decided to visit this restaurant again after many years of staying away. Food is reasonably priced...but mediocre. Great little cheese crackers and bread. Salad bar had wilted cucumbers, and other not so fresh veggies. Potato soup okay...not great. Ranch dressing completely tasteless. Our waiter was nice and helpful though. My ribeye was okay...just not great...They just need to up... More

This place requires patience if you are an adult. Think of a Dick's Resort but with juvenile, mid-school antics. The kids will love it and, believe it or not, I thought the food was real good. Had the chicken, brisket, potatoes, corn on the cob, and fruit. Very tasty. Expect to spend some time here.

At the urging of our daughter who had been before, we went with family members who were visiting. Our daughter enjoyed the "show" two years ago, but said the food wasn't that great, so we had low expectations and decided to get drinks and appetizers. The "magic potion" drinks were not too sweet, and the appetizers were excellent. We had... More

My husband found this restaurant on the internet before our trip. I was not looking forward to going, did not know what to expect. From the moment we sat down to eat we had nothing but fun and good food. Our waiter was Ace Ventura and he was fabulous. We all enjoyed our food which included chicken alfredo, mozzarella sticks,...

My sister brought me here while I was visiting San Antonio. The service was awesome! Ninja was our server who kept us laughing and entertained the entire time. He even gave us a tour of the restaurant. The bubbly drinks were yummy as well as the food. I enjoyed seeing all the different characters such as Spider-Man, Frog Princess, Buddy... More

Our service and experience here was fantastic. We were within walking distance to this restaurant. As soon as we entered the fun began, the whole family enjoyed the activities and food was awesome. We couldn't have asked for a better server, Lady Gaga, was amazing. She was very attentive to all of us but my granddaughter couldn't have been happier.... More

We had a great time here. The kids (of all ages) loved it. Our waiter was "Mario" and he kept us laughing the whole time. I hadn't been since I was younger and was not disappointed. The food was good, too!

This was a found by accident stop. And it was such a fun experience. Food was really good but the characters rock. Mr Incredible rocked for us. Deadpool was a hoot. I must say I am so glad we found this little jewel. Have plans on returning when we are in town. If you have kids, this is a must!
