“Risky for wee ones”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

The food was decent. The food was served beautifully on the plate, salad bar was clean. We all thought the children's drinks were pure fun--bubbling dry ice effect in their drinks. All waiting staff dressed in movie roles, and provide autographs for children. The place was fun, but while we were eating, the waiting staff turned raunchy during an adult birthday party before closing for the evening. Absolutely did not like when they "accidentally" did raunchy acts in front of our children (ages 4-7). We had to leave immediately. The place looks like a built-up shack from the outside, but inside is cozy with each table being an enclosed booth. Each booth is a conversation in itself. Go during the day if you have wee ones.

“Average to below average food....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Go for the fun atmosphere.....not the overpriced, mediocre food. The place is a fun place for kids but is in no way fine dining quality.

“Fun for a laugh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

The food is not great, but you go for the environment for sure. Fun waiters dressed up in costumes and in character who keep you entertained the entire meal. Don't ask to go to the bathroom unless you want to be embarrassed by cast! Roman Orgy meals are fun, but you'll probably want more food. Magic drinks are fun for the entire family. I go here every time we have a convention in San Antonio.
