Spiderman was our waiter. Just awesome. We had a magician come up to our table and spend 15 minutes doing a show just for our family. Totally fantastic. The decor is really unique and fun. The food is decent. My husband ordered a New York strip and it was pretty tasty. The kids' meat was less awesome. We had wonderful... More

First time ever trying this place and I love it. I am all about the old school & quirky so this place had me once I saw the giant Big Chief tablet and Raggedy Anns and space craft seating as well. The salad car is very cool. They have a wide range of characters and very cool atmosphere. Great for... More

Always a good time to visit MTM. The staff are generally great for the kids, though Poison Ivy had an attitude. The portrait guy, Bill, was great and stayed for us! Bender the balloon guy was another highlight as well. Mario was probably the best server, everyone in his section was excited to have him and thought he was great.... More

So this place was probably pretty cool back when it opened. But in 2016, it looks dated, hokey, and kind of sad. Our waitress was very much in character but I was completely uncomfortable with her little shorty shorts and tights while she was serving us food. Put on clothes. She was also annoying. The food was terrible. Think Luby's... More

The Magic Time Machine is a theme restaurant. My husband and family went their to celebrate my birthday. The staff was outstanding and we were placed in the King Louis VIII booth. King Louis was fabulous and hilarious. He kept us laughing all night. The food was good, but not great. The atmosphere is absolutely unique. Looking forward to going... More

I called to determine what characters were available as servers. Spider-Man was one that was mentioned and since he is one of my grandson's favorites we made reservations requesting Spider-Man. The decor was very cool and my grandson loved walking around looking as displays. The Spider-Man waiter was great as he came sneaking up to the table, my grandson's eyes... More

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!
