Rated 1 out of 5 by We purposely picked a slow time to go in and enjoy what was supposed to be my daughter's 9th birthday. We were seated fairly quickly and was greeted by our server in a fair amount of time. We didn't have an exceptionally large party. Four adults and two children. From start to finish was over two hours. There were tables that came in after us and left well before we did. Everything from ordering drinks to getting our food to even asking for the menu to order desserts took forever. I checked the timestamp on our first bill and it was marked 5:37. We left almost an hour later and the only thing that happened in that time frame was asking for the dessert menu, ordering the dessert and eating it. Even the birthday girl got her celebratory song late. He put her plate down with the candle on top and turned around to take care of the next table, candle unlit and no hoopla. We had heard three other tables get their song so we were excited to hear what my daughter's version would be and he caught on only after we asked him to light the candle for us. Ive never been so disappointed in my life with this restaurant and I didn't even have the heart to ask for a manager and ruin her dinner. Our friend who joined us made it a point to say something cause it was just that bad. Apr 13, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by The food was great. Our server was attentive and entertaining. We had our 5 year old granddaughter with us. She had her face painted, and got many "autographs" from other servers. We all had a great time! Mar 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The waiter was great but he did not tell us about the $6 extra for a salad bar trip if you split an entrée. This irritated me quite a bit being charged an extra $6 two times!!!! Also sold our two little granddaughters some koolaid for $1.99 each as he started off asking THEM what color of drink they wanted so that added $4 to the bill Mar 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our kids, ages 8 and 6 LOVED the resturant and their experience. They loved meeting the different characters, and being able to take pictures and ask for autographs from the staff. The staff was also GREAT and FANTASTIC team players willing to take the photographs and sign the cards!! Mar 17, 2014
