The atmosphere us great! The food is mediocre. The steak was the worst steak I'd ever had. Im not exaggerating.

Are you sure this water's sanitary? It looks questionable to me!!

I think if you understand what type of food they are serving, you won't be upset. We were there in August, my dad and sisters had burgers and shakes and all were enjoyed. I wasn't feeling super great so I got the BLT soup with a side of onion rings (hey I wasn't feeling THAT sick... ) Both of those were good as well. I think Sci-Fi is more of an experience than anything. The cars are so cute, and the old movies are right up my family's alley, so we had a great time.

We go every trip. DH does not give much input to ADR's-this is his only request. I think it's bc of the atmosphere- we always order burgers & shakes. They have always been really good. They are not like QS burgers much better. We've had great service every time as well. My boys love getting a drivers license at the end of the meal.

This had turned in to an apps/dessert only place for us our last few trips because we love the theming but aren't crazy for the food, but the new menu is decent and now we don't mind actually eating lunch here

Is it still as dirty? When we went it was filthy and I was majorly grossed out. The food was awful as well. I don't know how you can mess up burgers and fries. But they did. This was in June 2010 I believe.

Now, think of the happiest things. It's the same as having wings.

We were there in November and enjoyed it. Atmosphere is great, burgers, reuben sandwich, and solar flare shake were all popular choices at our table. But the real winner of the day were the fried pickles! BEST EVER (especially the spears)! We would definitely go back again!

Have eaten there several times, the first back in '95, and always enjoyed it.

Yes, its a bit pricey and yes, the menu is somewhat limited and not very exciting but the atmosphere/ambience is the star here. Would not hesitate to return....

We ate there in August 2011, enjoyed it! We had the

Burger-MIL said it was the best of the trip
Beef and Bleu Salad-One of my favorite meals of the trip!
Kids Pizza-Typical Disney Pizza
shrimp pasta-DH didn't like it, but he had them hold a bunch of stuff off of it, so i think the cook "added" some spices to make up for the missing garlic and onions, didn't turn out well

I would go back without hesitation! It's a really neat place!

I know I'm in the minority, but I really don't like the atmosphere at Sci-Fi! The food was okay, but I didn't like eating in almost pitch dark (had to illuminate my plate with my phone to get a good look at it), the little tiny counter they give you for your plate when seated in the car is barely wide enough to PUT your plate, and you are looking at the back of your companions' heads if more than 2 are dining together.

The place is very cool, but maybe I would just like dining at one of the real tables better than in the car (which, before experiencing it, seemed awesome).

I will say the dessert rocked!

i've always heard the food was good here.
Ate this this past year and my chicken sandwich was delicious. Nobody I was with (party of 10) had any complaints about the food.

We ate there in 2003, 2009, and 2011...never had a wretched, inedible, or dirty meal.

We stuck to burgers, fries, onion rings, shakes, sandwiches, soup...all were better than CS in a great atmosphere. It is a must do for us!

We hated it in 2010. The pictures I've seen since then look pretty good. And naturally they have my favorite thing in the world on the menu now.... fried pickles.

It's not on our rotation this upcoming February. Maybe we'll try it again some day though.
