My family and I went here to celebrate my hubby's birthday. We had a blast, and the food was great too! Our entertainer for our time there was Lady GaGa, and this gal made our experience special. Well worth the trip and cost!

Went for lunch Captain Jack was our waiter. Great service. Good food. Not as much a time machine rather a fictional fare.

The restaurant is heavily themed, and really appeals to kids - food good, but the varied decor and costumed staff really made the place fun - kids loved it.

If I remember correctly, the Magic Time machine in San Antonio only takes reservations for large parties. If I were you, I would request to sit near the salad car- there is more action and fun going on in that area. We sat... More
