A unique atmosphere, with animated dinosaurs and accompanying sound effects. Noisy but still a fun place to eat.

Couldn't wait to get to T-Rex. There is always so much going it's hard to keep up. We got the flat bread appetizer to split so we could try more. The onion rings were amazing. Perfectly cooked. HMMMM! If you ANY allergy issues the cook will be more than happy to come out personally to discuss options and preparations. Top... More

The ribs at trex cafe are beyond amazing , the best i have ever had. Lots of fun at this restaurant. Fantastic decor and scenery, VERY lively. Very loud so if you wanted a quiet dinner go elsewhere!

You gotta try this place just for the ribs! Brilliant restaurant with tasty food. I advise to book a table in advance as you can wait a while if you just turn up but well worth the wait. The place is huge with lots of tables but always busy. Best place to eat in Disney springs.

Good food and drinks. Atmosphere is just like Rainforest cafe but with Dinosaurs. The Blue room as I call it is a great area! Make a reservation don't walk up unless you want to wait for an hour.

Wasn't excellent but was very good. The food was fine, the kids loved the atmosphere and theme. I think the main problem was we had built it up in our minds that it was going to be amazing and then it couldn't really live up to it. The lines at the weekend were just crazy, I think I would have... More

Admittedly, we were pushing too much into a day (which is pretty much par for the course at Disney). We ended a day at Animal Kindgom with an evening at Downtown Disney, with dinner at T-Rex. We were exhausted, but enjoyed the atmosphere of the place (basically another Rainforest Cafe type restaurant with a different theme). We ordered standard dinner... More

If you don't have reservations for this restaurant prepare to wait and wait and wait... While we were originally quoted a ridiculous 1 and 40 minutes, that soon turned into 2 1/2 hours before being seated and probably 3 before we had food. The food is mediocre and while the ambiance is cool, we found that we couldn't really explore... More

After a long flight we headed to Disney Springs for food at T-Rex. We'd make a booking through the My Disney Experience app months prior but when we got to the desk our booking was nowhere to be found on their computers (despite it being visable on our apps). The staff were happy to try and fit us in but... More
