Back in 1973, it was Tony the Tiger, John Wayne, Peter Pan, and 'Elvis' who joked with customers, and treated them to a very special dining experience with one of their favorite pop culture icons. Over 35 years later, the Magic Time Machine is still exciting guests with much the same menu and fanfare that brought in the original crowds. In fact, we have been recognized by numerous publications as 'Best Special Occasion Restaurant' and 'Best Children's Restaurant' multiple times. The Magic Time Machine is a great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and just about anything else. Made it to work on time today? Come to dinner! Let's celebrate. Today, it is Captain Jack Sparrow, Ace Ventura, Woody the Sheriff, and Wonder Woman doing the serving. Not to be outdone, Indiana Jones, Dora the Explorer, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood anxiously await your arrival. Super heroes like Spiderman, Mr. Incredible, Johnny Storm and Bat Girl can frequently be seen chasing the Joker, Cruella Deville, and the poor misunderstood Dr. Evil. Each visit brings a unique dining experience, even with the same characters. The Magic Time Machine, where Improvisation is at its best every night, at every table. The menu has remained true to its roots with the same succulent Prime Rib and Steaks, but also offers many Chicken, Pork, and Seafood dishes as well. The Roman Orgy still awaits those with an adventurous spirit. Our Chefs also prepare Specials daily to take advantage of the freshest ingredients available at their peak. The children's menu offers a wide range of choices to satisfy even the most finicky of eaters. Come join us at the Magic Time Machine Restaurant, the only restaurant where 'Laughing Aloud, is Allowed'. Expect to enjoy a night of fine food, laughter, and good clean fun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Server had no personality GI Joe we made a booking for 15 they hadn't set up any tables we were celebrating a birthday no mention Feb 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by overly priced Feb 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by We waited nearly 2 hours for a table and we were told it would be 45 minutes. By the time we were seated our kids were grumpy, tired and very hungry. The ice made the drinks taste horrible. The waiting room was too hot. They had face painting available but at an exhuberant cost. The food was not to bad. The characters were neat but not worth the time it took to get seated. Call ahead and make reservations. Don't be late though we saw some people show up 15 to 30 minutes late then had to get wait listed like the rest of us. Feb 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything was great though Red Riding Hood didn't seem to be enjoying her job. That was just an observation from her passing by every so often. Ace Ventura was a fun host and entertainingly interacted aside from taking our orders. The Ninja character really stood out and constantly made gestures throughout the night. Feb 23, 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by it took long to get a Pepsi and me and my husbands lobster came 30 min after our meal even the fact that the manager didn't charge us but still being valetines day you want perfection Feb 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by The food was awful, my daughter had the chocolate cake and it tasted like the bread that was brought to the table. Our server Nacho Libre was busy taking pics with everyone else. I let the person seating us know it was my son's 16th b-day. They brought out six cookies with whip cream and Nacho Libre forgot his name and put something else on the plate instead of his name(I don't remember what he put). The table next to us had a b-day as well and that person rec'd a sundae as a desert. It was a horrible experience and a waste of my $100!!! I won't go back!! Feb 16, 2015
