“Almost Ok food”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

When you first enter the Jurassic Cafe you have high hopes of selection and quality. However, those quickly face when you are faced with pre made plates of food with little to no taste. The family of 6 had all different meals and none were enjoyed. I ordered chicken strips figuring how could you go wrong. Well they were flavorlesd. When we asked for Bbq sauce they told us it would be a 6 minute wait. I'd say just try one of the others and pass this place by.

“Food no Good!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

The waiting line was not bad cause we came in when it was almost closing time. The first time I was there, the food was bland! This time, it tasted worse! For the prices that they charge, it should, at least, be decent!

“Skip for hot food. Pricey, lukewarm, slow service”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

We definitely had some issues here. It might be different though if you are getting cold food options. Food was not very warm, some choices not ready and took a long time to get after we paid. Nuggets (why we ate here) heavily breaded and overdone, then cooled. I really hate to say it but the special needs staff just probably just needed some supervising staff available, so I blame management, not the workers . What's interesting about this theme park is that they offer chain restaurant options - we might try that next time.

“Great spot.”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

The food choices are mass market (i.e., restricted choices) but tasty and fast. The ambiance is memorable, particularly for a high-traffic thee park.

This is a perfect place to relax briefly, efficiently nourish, and pause between thrills while getting off your feet.

It can be packed at certain times. But be patient. It's worth any wait....

Sadly, on a personal note, the cafe so reminds me of how much I miss the creativity of the late Dr. Michael Crighton.

“Good choices”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This cafe had a good selection of hot and cold foods, including salads which was refreshing to see. It was a bit dark and dingy inside but that goes with the territory of Jurassic park I guess! Lots of outside seating both in the sun and the shade.
