Good drive in faire but you will not get gourmet here. Their Milk Shake is pretty good and I remember their onion rings were something we for sure would get again.

It is definitely standard burger/sandwiches, fries, milkshakes, etc. but our experience has been, they are pretty tasty! It's an adorably themed restaurant so definitely one you should try. We enjoy it, but don't have to go EVERY trip.

We love the atmosphere and the food was good. Our kids love it. It is amazing to sit in a restaurant without anyone talking. Quiet, dark and cool - especially during the summer - what a refreshment during the day. We go almost every time.

This! These are the reasons why my DS and I love this place. Plus we think the food is pretty tasty. They have the best shakes, the oreo shake is so yummy! We also enjoyed their chicken wings, spinach dip, onion rings, and picnic burger (my personal fave)! We pretty much go every trip too!

Nope

Our family just did not like it. The kids did not like it when they were little and now that they have grown we like to talk and relax. We can watch a movie at home. Guess we are the voice of dissent.

We like the Sci Fi Theater as well! On our last trip, my Mom and I were at HS at lunch time and the counter service options weren't sounding all that great to us. We checked at the podium at Sci Fi and were able to "hitch hike" for the third row with another family. No wait at all! The quality of their burgers and fries is superior to any counter service burger.

It was just okay for us. Food wasn't bad but wasn't particularly good either. My kids didn't enjoy the atmosphere as much as I thought they would. They were bored with the clips shown on the big screen.

We're not really picky people, but Sci Fi just didn't do much for us. There was nothing bad about it, so if you're interested in checking it out, then give it a try.

My wife and I enjoy Sci Fi and the atmosphere the restaurant has. Being just the two of us we have been lucky the last three times we have gone and have shared our cars with other couples and have ended up talking to them during our meals and had some really cool times there.

On our last visit our 'Car Hop' must have been there for a while as he made our experience really fun. He knew all the lines from the movies running on the screen and even suggested we switch seats while the ladies both left at the same time and we did. Just fun little things like that make our trips and make it really fun.

The food of course is not "gourmet" though it is not bad at all. The milkshakes as mentioned are great and we like to get the adult beverages that change colours. with those glow in the dark ice cubes. We use them the rest of the day and evening.

Thank you, everyone! I just made ADR for our trip in Oct. It was hard to find a time, lots of times are already taken (at least the day we were looking at).
