I don't even know where to begin. Like a many the Magic Time Machine held a nostalgic place in my mind. I booked my sons birthday arrived early and was treated horribly. The restaurant smelled like stale cigarettes and beer from years past. The furniture so grimy and disgusting that there was no way I was going to sit. How... More

I loved this place. we took a group of students there and they served us so much food it was ridiculous. I actually liked the food it was really good. Our server was Cinderella she was awesome.

This is a fun dinner if you have fairly young children. Expect good food. The staff was dressed as all kinds of characters from the past. They were engaging. My kids had a great time. Be aware that you may spend a lot on tips for table side entertainment like balloon making, funny pictures and magic.

I have been going to Magic Time Machine for 30 years. This will be our last. It's not that it was bad, but it was average. And if I am going to spend the amount of money on a meal for my family (two daughters, their husband's, and my two grandkids) we will go where the food and service is... More

We went there for a birthday, and had a great time! Our server was "Spiderman", and the food & service was excellent! Great place for a special occasion meal.

Love the one in San Antonio, this one though, food was great. But the characters don't interact with you as much. They stay true to form, but hold back. We had a really great time due to the party we were with. But if you have never been, need to go give it a try. Prime Rib is wonderful, WO... More

My 10 year old son came here with a friend a couple of years ago and has wanted to go back with us ever since. We finally agreed not knowing what we were in for. He didn't even like it this time around and we thought it was disgusting. It could be so much more than it is and needs... More

I love this place. You have servers dressed as characters who act the parts great. There is a salad bar with potato salad, beets, mushrooms and pasta salad. The appetizers are great and average 7.99 (try the shrimp picayune!). Entrees average about 15.99 to 25.99. Great steaks and pasta. The alcohol is great and average 7.99 to 9.99. Enjoy and... More

Overpriced and food was below average. Definitely better places to try in the area. I don't know what the attraction to this place is, but overall it was pretty disappointing.
