Awesome place for kiddos. Lots to see and keep their attention.

Our server was kind of distracted and the restaurant was only about 60% full.

I think there were also some fake birthdays as there were dozens of them going on at once.

The food was average, but the bloody mary was delicious.

This is definitely a one timer restaurant.

As a themed restaurant not bad visually pretty cool , good for kids and for photos. Staff are friendly . Food is good not fantastic but good just as it is on any other themed restaurant . Our waiter was pleasant but seemed to want to push the most expensive items on the menu I expect to pay more in these places but don't like to be pushed into making their choices . Then they let themselves down. We ordered nachos as a starter they didn't turn up but the main meals did which were nice filling and tasty, we enquired about the starters which then arrived halfway through the main meal with lots of apologies not a problem we all enjoyed the meal and the starter together. Oh our waiter who " will be looking after you tonight " lost interest after taking our order we didn't see him again till he gave our bill to the wrong table . My impression if they think you will be spending lots of money they will look after you.If you are not a big table or going to have three courses then expect to be ignored I expect it's something to do with the tip or am I to cynical ? We spent $115 now when we eat in the UK it normally costs that in £,s so bill wasn't bad but service was very poor. I always try to look on the positives but it really was only average. Service was shocking I did leave a tip as the food was ok but not the 18 to 21% they expected .

Our visit on October 11 exceeded our expectations. Before our visit, I sent an inquiry through the Landry’s site about our son’s rare dietary needs and my concern about the timing of our reservation, which was the only one I could get via the Disney site for our entire stay. Very shortly after I submitted the inquiry, I was called by their head chef to discuss how they could accommodate my son (which was amazing), and then the next
day I was contacted by another person about adjusting our reservation time. When we arrived that Friday afternoon, we were a little early, but there were plenty of tables, and we were seated immediately. My 9-year old son,
who is a HUGE dino fan, was enthralled! I think he could have stayed there for hours, repeatedly watching the meteor shower and walking around to study all of the dinos. Our server, Kristen, was probably the most incredible server we have ever encountered. She could not have been more
accommodating to our son’s special needs. The chef on duty came to our table to discuss our son’s menu. Having read some of the reviews, I was anxious about what the quality of the food would be, but we were all very pleasantly surprised. My husband asked for his salmon to be grilled plain - without any seasoning, and he said it was one of the best
he has ever had (and he’s very picky!). I had the rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes - it was way too much for one, so my husband ate the rest. We were not rushed in order to turn over the table, even though the tables
were quickly filling up. Our son then built a Dino in their store - he was on cloud nine. It was a wonderful way to start our Orlando vacation! Although it is pricey, you are paying for the experience, which for us was priceless. Our son can’t eat out at many restaurants, but they did an amazing job.

Tip - especially if you will be visiting during your birthday month - join Landry’s Select Club. Costs $25 to join, but you get a $25 credit, plus another $25 credit in your birthday month, and you get priority seating.

First time there and I didn't really know what to expect. I was impressed with the place visually it is very similar to The Rainforest Cafe only with Dinosaurs.
To be honest the fact that it reminded me of the Rainforest Cafe worried me because I HATE the food from there BUT to my surprise the food was good. I had the streak and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys steak, it was above average in taste.
We were on the dining plan and I would recommend this as a table service to anyone.

We absolutely loved this restaurant! First off...a little travel tip. We tried to book a reservation about 2 weeks early and they were full. So when we arrived on Saturday night (november 16) we decided to see how long the wait was and it was over an hour. HOWEVER....my friend asked about sitting at the bar, just so happened that there were 4 spots open so we got to walk right it, NO WAIT AT ALL!!! And the bar is awesome! It looks like fake ice and changes colors and you get a great view of a fish tank. Service was amazing. The food took about 25 minutes but we were able to walk around the restaurant and take pictures so it didn't seem that long. Our waitress, Onnarei (I think this was her name, super cute bartender with short dark red hair) was so fabulous. She was sweet and attentive even though it was busy, checked on our food, surprised our friend for her birthday, and took photos of us together as a group. Would definitely go again!!!! Food was AMAZING, we all loved it and you get SO MUCH! I was only able to eat half of my burger because it was so huge!
