We took a group of 25 to this restaurant. When I made the reservation the manager said we would be in the party room. When we arrived this was not the case. Despite the mix up the wait staff worked hard to ensure everyone had a good time. Our waiter Mario was very funny and kept us laughing. His partner... More

The atmosphere is amazing. If I had small children it would be a monthly stop. The restaurant is a step into a fantasy land. All the servers dress in different characters. The food is okay. The salad car - yes car not bar was average, but it was a long walk to get there. You could ask to be close.... More

Food is nothing special and quality id not above the regular fast food. The real deal here is the kid theme tables and personnel. Excellent for the kids birth

I don't even know where to begin. Like a many the Magic Time Machine held a nostalgic place in my mind. I booked my sons birthday arrived early and was treated horribly. The restaurant smelled like stale cigarettes and beer from years past. The furniture so grimy and disgusting that there was no way I was going to sit. How... More

I loved this place. we took a group of students there and they served us so much food it was ridiculous. I actually liked the food it was really good. Our server was Cinderella she was awesome.

This is a fun dinner if you have fairly young children. Expect good food. The staff was dressed as all kinds of characters from the past. They were engaging. My kids had a great time. Be aware that you may spend a lot on tips for table side entertainment like balloon making, funny pictures and magic.

I have been going to Magic Time Machine for 30 years. This will be our last. It's not that it was bad, but it was average. And if I am going to spend the amount of money on a meal for my family (two daughters, their husband's, and my two grandkids) we will go where the food and service is... More

Love the one in San Antonio, this one though, food was great. But the characters don't interact with you as much. They stay true to form, but hold back. We had a really great time due to the party we were with. But if you have never been, need to go give it a try. Prime Rib is wonderful, WO... More
