We son really wanted to eat here again on this trip and fortunately we were able to make a reservation the night before, which is rare. If you don't have a reservation be prepared to wait and very likely not get one of the 'cars' to sit in. We had a great waiter, a decent 'car' location. It's pricey, but everything at Disney is... all of our meals were very good. Steak, mac-n-cheese, turkey sandwiches, fries, veggies.... there were no complaints from our group of four. It's a neat experience, not a lot of 'table' space but all you need to manage a plate and drink.

We made reservations for the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater during our visit to Disney Hollywood Studios. I would definitely recommend having a reservation since the wait can be long and you may not get to eat in the theater but instead in just a side room. The dinning theater is dark, so have your phone ready to light up to read the menu. As you dine there is a large screen that plays sci-fi clips from the 50’s and 60’s. It seems to loop about every hour. The food was good and the service was excellent. Great way to enjoy a meal and bet the heat.

We really enjoy this place! The atmosphere is unique and fun! Food was very good - two of us ordered the steak, one burger, and an appetizer combo with no complaints! The milkshakes and hot fudge sundaes were old school and absolutely outstanding! Portions were huge and service was wonderful! We would definitely return for the experience alone!

had to wait to get into the restaurant half an hour after reservations. after the first server explained details on our meal plan and took drink orders another server came by to take food orders was very rude by making us listen to his version of what the other guy just said. food took an hour to prepare for our party of ten I walked out pissed because they failed to ever refill my water glass and never offered me another beer.

Can't comment on the food, honestly it's so dark in there it's impossible to tell what you're eating. But the theming is fantastic, I just loved it. You do need to book months in advance, as the staff were cheerfully telling walk-ins!
