Great for kids of all ages but make sure they seat you in the area where the dinosaurs come alive, otherwise it's boring and the wait can be long and the prices are expensive but I have to say the food was good!

Sad to hear it closed. We just had lunch there on August 12th. The good was fabulous. The staff was awesome! The price, can't complain! We had plans to return next time we were in KC. My grandsons loved the place!

The kids enjoyed seeing all of the decor. I was a little hung up on how clean it was inside. The food was decent but very pricey.

This is a very nice themed restaurant about Dinosaurs with an attached expensive store selling everything you can imagine with theme DInossaur. The food was very good but it is a little overpriced, but this is expected in a restaurant like this. The waitress was...More

I haven't done a birthday party there. But if you go to their website for that location, you can get the local phone number and call the host and ask. I called to get some information from them before our visit and they were... More
