My wife and I ate here on our recent trip to Walt Disney World on her birthday. I have to admit that I was somewhat skeptical based upon my previous experiences with the Rain Forest Cafe and their overpriced, lackluster food. But this place has Dinosaurs and they make everything better, don't they? I have to say that this ended... More

We popped in while in Disney Springs & the wait was a bit so we sat at the bar. The food was good, drinks mixed well & fast service. It was a fun, touristy place.

I visited T-Rex in September and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The restaurant itself came alive, very lively and has allot to look at. The food was very delicious. The mashed potatoes are amazing, I haven't stopped thinking about them since returning. I would recommend people of all ages to visit here for food as you would not be disappointed, kids... More

I love this place. The scenery is fun for all ages. It not just has a dinosaur theme, it also has sounds and the background is so real looking. The food is delicious and we even find something for my very picky son to eat. Sit in the very back of restaurant for best experience.

If you like Rainforest Cafe then you will love T-Rex. The dinosaur theme is amazing but can be scary for very young children. I have to admit that I am a burger fan and I love the burgers from T-rex. I have always found the service to be very friendly and very helpful. Overall a very good experience.

Loved the decor. Was very busy when we went so service was slow. Didn't like how loud it was in there, just with people and other noises. Food was just average.

Atmosphere is one of a kind. Themed to dinosaur eras with various sections, including anamatronics that periodically move and sound off, plus a metoer shower every 20 minutes or so that has them all going at the same time with dimmed overhead lights and 'meteor' lightshow. The food was actually pretty good, though obviously a little pricey. The shrimp/artichoke and... More

I was really excited to go here and eat, I have to say the atmosphere is absolutely amazing! You do have to wait depending I suppose on the time. The restaurant is absolutely beautifully decorated, the dinosaurs come to life and there is even a meteor shower too! Downside to it all is what I had for dinner I had... More

We visit T Rex every trip to Orlando. Its like a show while having lunch. The kids can move about and see everything. There is a great place for the kids to hang out and look for fossils while waiting for your table. There is different areas to sit in for a different experience. The kids love the ice cave.... More
