Took my 4 grandchildren, son and daughter-in-law to enjoy the atmosphere and about went into cardiac arrest when I saw the over-inflated prices!!! Simple food choices, mediocre taste, nothing to brag about. To add further insult, the kids meals were even more skimpy on quantity...More

Great environment and fun for kids but the food and soda could definitely be better. Our notches were cold and our pop was really flat tasting. The environment is fun though and it’s very entertaining and worth seeing if you have never been there.

Outrageously overpriced. I got 6 coconut shrimp with fries and it was well over $20. Won't be back, that's for sure.

We were impressed in how seriously they took our families food allergies. The chef came out to personally take our order and verified it several times. He personally delivered the meals for those of us with allergies.

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

I don't believe they take reservations, but we only had about a 15 minute wait on a Friday at noon. The searing capacity was bigger than I thought it would be.

Considering this is a novelty restaurant in the Mall of America, we did not consider it to be expensive. The three adults ate for about $38 and we were full!
