It is the Rainforest Cafe but with Dinosaurs. Basically, you can get the idea just by walking around the restaurant without actually dining there. The food is mediocre and the service is very slow. I was there with a party of 3 who did not have much to order and everything took too long. The choices are there but the... More

We are here on our last day of vacation and it was ok. It was our second time here and the theming is great, although it was a bit loud for our kids. The food was ok, pricey and typical food for that type of restaurant. I had a steak which was decent and some shrimp and scallops. The scallops... More

This restaurant was very unique and fun with dinosaurs all over, kind of like Jurassic Park. Pretty busy place so we ate at bar. Food was delicious and bartender very friendly and efficient. Usual "Disney" prices, but we expected that. If you like Rainforest Cafe, you will like this. For adults and kids alike!

My family enjoyed the atmosphere. We were seated in the ice cave with a woolly mammoth. They also have T-Rex, who screeches every 20 minutes. Although the scenery is great it is VERY loud and compacted with tables. We ordered 2appetizers.The tower appetizer which had queso and chips, quesadillas, and bruschetta. It was ok, could have been a lot warmer,... More

We weren't able to get a reservation but when we walked up for a late lunch, we got a table within 10 minutes. Yes, it's loud, but your kids will love it and won't forget it. Unless your kids are skiddish...then they might not love it. There's a lot going on. Servings are massive (sharing is an option) and the... More

Best place ever. Get there early and put your name on the list and your family will have a great time. My grandchildren loved the place and to be honest so did I.

Concierge recommended this spot and it delivered. Amazing and entertaining are two workers that don't really touch this exciting eating experience. Lots to see and the food was really good! Definitely a must

Glad to check this off the bucket list for the kids and never go back. The check in process was disorganized and chaotic. $20 for a salad or burger is insane! Our food took well over 30 minutes and it was still wrong ...probably because half the staff was singing happy birthday to someone new every 5 minutes...save your money..

This place would be great for kids. It has many animatronic dinosaurs which "act up" every 15 minutes or so, and it gets very noisy. I'm sure children loved it. But, the food wasn't the best. I had mahi-mahi and it was tough, not really that tasty.

This place sits in the middle of very busy and now fancy Disney Springs and is quite the attraction. Similar to the Rainforest Cafe which sits opposite of this place, this is as the name summarizes, all dedicated to dinosaurs and it is actually cooler and better food than a Rainforest Cafe. Of course the place will give you quite... More
