Nothing to write home about pretty average. I'll give them a few extra points for making my daughter a gluten free burger. She can't be near any gluten at all and the manager took the time to talk to her though really didn't have many suggestions as to what she might eat. Also, one of our party wanted to ride... More

We went there with a couple of friends for breakfast before heading to Universal Studios. We waited way too much (more than 30 min), taking away some time we planned to spend in the park. The food was just ok. The orange juice tasted like water, avoid it. Our waitress, Jenna, was just amazing! She was nice, always available and... More

Very fun joint with great drinks and food. Readers be aware, while there's plenty of square footage, I don't believe they have the staff on hand to quickly seat and serve everyone in a timely manner. We arrived for dinner at 6pm and the crowd was fairly thin, however we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, and the... More

This restaurant is right outside the universal studios park. We left the park for lunch and to rest. Bet, very friendly and cheerful staff. Variety of foods. Our group got blue cheese and apple salad with chicken - the small portion was very large. One of my teen boys got a burger and fries and the other got pizza. Both... More

What a surprise to find good food at such a tourist spot. The French dip was as good as it gets with enough food to feed two. The wedge salad was a meal in itself. The beer and wine are expensive but that's what you get at City walk. Didn't ride the bull.

We had a great meal here while on holidays visiting Universal Studios. The ribs were the best we have tasted in a long time. The meals are really big so we didn't have room for dessert but if we did we would have tried making s'mores by the campfire.

This was a typical amusement park food. I was not impressed with quality of food. BBQ tri-tip was tuff and chewy. One friend commented he had hard time slicing it to bite sizes. BBQ chicken and rice was a little better but again not impressed. Friendly staff members saves the day with quick and courteous services.

We just wanted to grab some breakfast before heading into the park. Got seated quickly and drinks order was sorted promptly, but after that our server pretty much neglected us while other tables around were getting service. Food took ages and we had no updates or explanations! Utterly horrendous service!

This was not our first choice after leaving Universal Studios but we were positively surprised. Steaks were good, hamburgers as well. Fine price to quality ratio. Extremely helpful staff - they managed to heat up baby food although they are not allowed to use microwave for this. Overall experience - really good.

Thank MaGPL
