Was here for my son many years ago and now we went with his son. Still a hoot. Snow White, Jack Sparrow, the cast of the Avengers and more. The food is pretty. The atmosphere is fantastic. Just a lot of fun for all.

Family of four experienced a great dinner at this restaurant. Forrest Gump was our waiter and he was hilarious. The food was great and the kids loved the smoke that would bubble up out of the drinks.

Magic Time Machine is old and dusty. It kinda feels like I imagine a haunted house to feel. The food is ok, but maybe a little overpriced. Having said all that, our son requests to go to MTM any time we are in San Antonio....More

A restaurant like no other. Costumed characters are the waiters and every dining area is unique, Enjoy the salad car!! Restaurant was great fun, food was so-so, but it was worth visit as it is so unique.
