Kids young and old will love it. The ice cave, meteor showers, tropical fish and of course.... Dinosaurs!! Get reservations if you don't want to wait for an hour or so to get in. Food was good( I got the steak). There is a volcano dessert that feeds 4. Kids will love it because it will erupt on the table... More

Fun family atmosphere where everyone can enjoy the attractions. The grand kids had a blast. Ordered a variety of things, meatloaf was huge and tasty, steak and tuna was good, but I've had much better tuna, I guess I shouldn't have expected it to be great. The kids meals were large and the kids were very satisfied. The dessert was... More

Cobb salad was not good, kids dino nuggets are equivalent to what you get at Target, burger was ok... The awesome atmosphere is the only redeeming quality.

We returned to T-Rex to finish our Universal holiday, as checking in our baggage nearby and then shopping on Disney Springs is a great way to finish a trip on the final day. T-Rex is a wonderful family restaurant as it has an amazing design - dinosaurs everywhere and also a massive area dedicated to ocean life with huge aquarium... More

This stop us always a crowd pleaser with young and old alike. The atmosphere is awesome and the food is great as well. My kids love all the wonderful dinosaur world decorations and the eruption that occurs when the asteroid is hitting the planet. You can't go wrong with this place!

We have always gone to the Rainforest Cafe so we wanted to try T-Rex one time. The food is overpriced and not that great, no matter how you ask your burger to be cooked, it will be well done. We sat in the ice cave which really messes with your eyes going from bright pink to bright blue constantly. The... More

We have visited in the past and felt the food was quite good. This time the food was just plain unacceptable. We waited almost 40 minutes for the food to be served. My wife's grilled chicken salad had chicken that was cold, lettuce that was not fresh and nuts that could not be found. My daughter's fried shrimp and fries... More

Roxy delivered great service! Loved her. The place is kid typical which is great for my 9 year old son. That said the food is overpriced and just OK, nothing spectacular. It's all about the atmosphere.

I recently went here for Dinner with friends and 2 children under 8. It was pretty busy and a the kids seemed to enjoy the decor and meteor shower. The food options were pretty standard, similar to the Rainforest Cafe. I ordered their Meteor meatloaf dish which was actually pretty good and a lot bigger than whet I was expecting.... More

We were a walk up party of 4. Wait we were told was 50 minutes. Only waited 35 minutes. Fossil dig area to occupy kids. Atmosphere is loud. Our food was delicious and hot. They take the Disney dining plan credit which we liked. My kids love dinosaurs so this was great. Would recommend.
