So as long as you know that going in you should be good. Some fun tables and it's really a kids experience where they can go around and get "characters"signatures. This place could be so much better, the food is mediocre at best, honestly we had two tables for 16 people and nobody really liked their food. The other aspect... More

After reading the reviews here, we were nervous about eating here but our friends highly recommended it. We brought our 10-year old and 15-year old daughters. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the 10-year old had fun collecting autographs and getting a balloon animal. We had prime rib, super hero pasta, shrimp scampi, and chicken tenders. It was all good- large portions... More

The atmosphere is definitely set up for children but enough hilarity for adults to enjoy as well. The food is surprisingly good. Love the fried catfish!

Birthday party for grand-daughter, about a dozen in our party. Had a great time, fun environment, excellent food, good service. Most enjoyable. Wide variety of food on the menu. Very enjoyable overall and certainly worth coming back again.

Great experience for a family. We a little pricey for a week night, but I had heard great things. Salad car was really nice and so was the artist at the front. Food left something to be desired, didnt seem to be the best quality of seafood.

I liked the place - we take people (mainly) kids here when they come in from out of town. The costumes are fun and the food is fine. (Just fine. Not fine food.) The carpet and decor is EXACTLY the same as when I visited in the early years of MTM. Not styled the same. The same carpet. Like -... More
