We had a great meal at Sci-fi this summer. I hadn't been there in about 14 years; my husband isn't a Sci-fi fan, and never wanted to eat there. I had never been blown away by it, but we loved it on this trip. We actually found ourselves craving it the next day. It was one of our most relaxing meals. Therefore, it gets my vote.

We've grown increasingly disappointed in Tony's and didn't even give it a try this year.

Another vote for Sci-fi! I didn't love my food but it was decent and the atmosphere was unique and fun!

Sci-Fi!! Better than decent food IMHO, my family quite enjoyed the food there. Plus, the atmosphere is just so much fun! We've always had attentive, friendly servers as well.

We are thinking Sci Fi, should we get a reservation or can we just walk in for lunch?

Get a reservation. You are running the risk that you won't get in for lunch at the time you want.

Get a reservation. I don't know if it's true but I heard or read somewhere that the people with reservations get the first shot at the seats in the cars. Walk-ins get sat at the back tables if the cars are full. I think the reservation is better assurance for a car.

You absolutely need a reservation. We have seen many walk ups turned away. It's a lot of fun!

I always suggest a reservation!! Sci-Fi is a GREAT place to eat, the atmosphere is one of my favorites.

I'd really love to try this on our upcoming February trip, but DS, who is 5, is still wary of scary images. He doesn't quite get real vs. fake, not even in the case of extreme cheesiness that's presented in the sci fi trailers like the ones they show on the big screen. I think he'd really love the concept though, and I can't really find anyplace to use our remaining TS on our DHS day....

Thoughts? Suggestions?

PS I'm fairly new to the boards here and was unsure whether its better to ask in an existing thread or make my own.

I probably am not the best person to comment on this because I don't have kids but with that disclosure I'd say that the restaurant, while somewhat dimly lit, is not like a dark theater. There's a lot going on in there and other noises that the movie screen after a few minutes doesn't seem like the central focus. There are lots of other cars there and the waiters and the food - plenty to distract a kid. And it sounds like you already know it but the movies are very cheesy but I understand your sensitivites and if in doubt then you should go with your instincts! 50's Primetime is also a fun place and has a unique feel to it. I actually think their food is better.

My 3 year old niece was with me on my last trip, and she LOVED it, she got to sit in the front and "drive" the car. There were no issues with the darkness or scary images or anything.

Wow! Thanks y'all! I totally didn't think it would be so overwhelming a response for one restaurant!

Thanks so much! Sci-Fi here welcome! (I'm about to cancel a noon residue at Tony's for Tuesday, oct 9 if anyone is looking! Lol)

Thanks for your responses, everyone! I think we're going to skip it. I talked to DS yesterday about it and he didn't seem keen on the idea. Sorry to hijack your thread, Teresa! Hope you LOVE it there, it looks like so much fun!

Just wanted to add a vote for Sci Fi

We've eaten at both, and repeated both last month. Tony's was just not good. Sci Fi is a must do for DD10. While I thought the buffalo chicken stuffed potatoe appetizer was disgusting, the entree (shrimp pasta), and desert were delicious. We'll just skip the appy next year.
