    The Triassic Tortellini with chicken is a great choice. If you're hungry, it will definitely fill you up. Make a reservation in advance as this place is popular. I would come back.

    Most of the food is not great & very overpriced. The best item is the omnivore's salad! The atmosphere and theme is very well done. Great gift shop area/Build-A-Dino if your kids love dinosaurs

    When you arrive make sure you stand in the correct queue! There will be three: 1) I want a table 2) I've booked a table why am I queuing 3) I've done queue 1 or 2 and finally I'm going to have a seat.

    Awesome place, Elisha B was the best waitress! Wanna build the Ice Cave in my house. Sat with Triceratops and he was the best lunch partner I've had in awhile, although he didn't split the bill! LoL

    Food was great. Little on the expensive side, but that's expected with a Landry restaurant. Get plenty of food and the desserts are great as well. The ice cave can be a little much on the eyes.

    Fun place to take the kids if you are at the Parks or for a special occasion. It does get loud in there at times. The onion soup is amazing! The entree The Trio is delish!!

    When the waiter asks for your birth day, tell em you don't have one, u were hatched. ;D If u have Jonathan as a waiter, you'll get an excellent response that surprises even the shrewdest of men!

    This place is great with Gluten Free or special food allergies..they send the chef out to help you with what you can order. VERY happy with how they handled keeping us safe!

    Sweet atmosphere. If u like the rainforest cafe, this restaurant tops it in every way. Extremely busy, but great food. Try the ribs.

    An amazing place to eat. The decoration is phenomenal. Make sure you see the meteor shower. The food is definitely on the expensive side, and but entrée portions are big. Moz. sticks bring only 5.

    Grab a seat at the bar under the squid. You can eat from the full menu and the wait is much shorter. Also the bartenders have always been a lot of fun.

    I highly recommend this place if you have small children. Great atmosphere. Tasty food. Huge portions. You can't go wrong. Make a reservation to cut down your wait time.

    Great atmosphere and the food was delicious. My first time here very similar to the rainforest cafe but prehistoric creatures. I definitely recommend it for families.

    Decent rotisserie chicken, nice onion rings and a wide selection of other entrees. Kids get a headband & enjoy regular "meteor showers" with flashing lights, sound effects & animatronics. Noisy!

    a little pricey, but hey, it's Disney. excellent food & great service to match.if u're going w/ 4 or more people definitely get the Chocolate Extinction for dessert.

    Don't wanna wait 4 hours for a table? Go to the bar and sit/eat. Usually seats open all the time. Plus you get a great view!!!

    An awesome place. If you want to avoid the line and possibly mediocre food but enjoy the fun, have a drink and an app at the bar!

    The app sampler is awesome and adding ribs makes it so good.Not enough food for 4 though. We also loved the theme and our waitress Virginia,she is A++!

    Your party is "expedition of..." which is cute. So loud though. Metor shower every 20min. A bit chilly so bring a sweater. Take advantage of all the photo-ops!

    This is a great themed resturant. We loved the sampler app,but it wasn't enough for 4 people.Our waitress Virginia was A++ and made our night the best!

    This place is awesome inside! It is pricey but no one comes to Disney to save money. The meteor shower was a bit of a let down. I was surprised at how good the food was. Way better than RFC.

    Amazing time! Great family place! However prepare to spend a while there, even w a reservation! It's also rather loud! Waitress was nice but rather scarce! We still had fun! ;)

    The nachos and quesadillas are super good and you get a ton to share or take home with you! The food is just like Rainforest Cafes.

    Great ambiance for kids, gets a little too loud and food is ok. Try the cotton candy martinis :)

    Fun place to see your out-of-state friends (who first made fun of you about going to a bar @ place called T-REX) later keep talking about da meteor shower for the rest of the night.

    For sure get the Mango Mojito (frozen). Really good! The ribs were also amazing! Its worth the price for the food and atmosphere, people who complain about the price are just cheap.

    Skip the line & go to the bar; much faster. Ask for Ryan. Food is good but very overpriced. Ambiance is very cool but loud so keep that in mind. Cool animatronics & meteor shower. Kids will enjoy.

    Bring hand sanitizer and blinders. Apparently clothing is optional for toddlers in diapers. I wonder if the health department would agree?

    A fun place to go! The food is good...you could probably split a meal...very generous helping. A bit pricey but worth the fun!

    Food is great and the dinos are huge. My kids loved it but some might be scared. For little ones, 1 kids meal is enough for both.

    This place is hilarious, but worth the long wait. It may look ridiculous, but the food is actually really good. And the drinks are adventurous.

    Remember to tip your dinosaur builders. $5 is good and well. Request Kayla, she builds the best ones. Then tip her. Heavily.

    The pulled pork was overcooked, the onion soup had no onions, the nachos were sitting in canned black bean syrup, the cost is OUTRAGEOUS, and many of the Dino plaques have spelling/grammar errors.

    Eat at the bar the aquarium was made by the guys from Tanked. Nachos can feed way more than 2 people. Large portions!

    Was skeptical at first about the prices, but the new york strip and the rotissery chicken changed my mind!!! Amazing food and you get what you pay for!

    The hotels in the area have passes the give you priority seating. Short wait for dinner with the passes. This place is great for kids.

    Coolest place to eat with kids. So much to see no matter where you sit. Choose the ice cave on hot days.
