The T-Rex Cafe was very fun for our group of kids and family to visit. The boys especially loved all the interaction with dinosaurs. However, the food was average. This is a good lunch spot, but would not recommend it if you are looking for an exceptional "foodie" experience.

We came for the atmosphere, but I was really surprised how much we liked the food! Normally the restaurants that are focused on the kids fall short of the mark with the food, but the food here was delicious. A little pricey, and the dinosaurs were animatronic and very realistic, so depending on the personality of your child, they may... More

I reviewed T-Rex sometime ago and the gist of my review at the time was to go for the kids, not the food. Well, when you have two grand kids begging to go to T-Rex -- you go! I planned on getting a little appetizer while the kids ate, and then go somewhere decent later. I was pleasantly surprised. The... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years, especially when one of our children has a birthday. The interior is truly unique and amazing. Children love this place and especially the dinosaur theme. At busy times, expect to wait 30 to 45-minute to be seated. It is good to call ahead and make a reservation. The... More

Really love the ambience and location. Lots of dinosaurs and plants around the restaurant. Service and food were just average, but overall had an enjoyable time. A little pricey, but you're paying for the experience.

The T-Rex Cafe was what I had expected from an atmosphere standpoint with plenty of things to garner my 6 and 4 year olds attention. The food was a bit pricey for the quality and during our lunch the service was just average. I am not sure we would go again with so many other options in the Legends shopping... More

We took my nephew here. He always enjoys it so much. The staff are always friendly and helpful. No matter how busy they are, we have never had to wait more than 20 mins which, with kids, that is HUGE! We usually come here 1-2 times year. Always something to look forward to.

T-Rex has a dinosaur theme and it's like you are eating in a jungle surrounded by hungry dinosaurs. The food is nothing special but the ambiance alone is worth a visit. Kids love it and we enjoyed it as well.
