Fun themed restaurant for kids. Very "disney" like. The volcano desert of ice cream and brownies was delicious. Derek our server was excellent.

Theatrics and food. What more can you ask for. I had the Fajitas and cleaned the plate. The staff and food went above and beyond.

It's always an experience here. This was the first visit for our 12 year old and she had a blast. Food was good and service good. Unfortunately this time they seemed a little short staffed and we had to wait a more than usual.

Wow! Lesson learned on not ordering off a menu with no prices for lunch!!! $27 for lunch is a little extreme at a chain restaurant. Fun experience, but would consider it ‘been there, done that’ and wouldn’t return. Service and food was excellent, but lunch...More

We had such a good experience again. We went in around lunch time. Service was exceptional. Our kids loved every bit of the sounds and animals. The food was good. Be ready to pay a little more than you would normally probably spend, but worth...More

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

I don't believe they take reservations, but we only had about a 15 minute wait on a Friday at noon. The searing capacity was bigger than I thought it would be.
