    We always eat there. My boys love eating in the "car." I did not think the food was that bad. It's pretty much like most of the "American" food on property. I had a pretty good sandwich once and a nice burger on another visit.

    Don't waste your money on the higher end dishes in some sort of attempt to make the most of the money you spent on the dining plan! Just stick with the sandwiches.

    When we went I had a rueben that wasn't anything to freak out over but the theming made it one of my fav places to eat. I'm a huge scifi b-movie fan, my favorite shows are Twilight Zone and Mystery Science Theatre 3000. So to me the cheesy trailers made it a great experience but if your going for food I'd suggest Pizza Planet and NOT ABC Comisary lol

    I enjoy it for lunch. Burgers, soups, salads, sandwiches have all been good here for us. It's a fun atmosphere.

    The Sci Fi is a lovely cool haven from the heat!!! I usually get the very very good Turkey sandwich on multigrain with avacado mayo. It is a fabulous sandwich ... and with some Iced Tea and those wonderfully horrible movies ... the Sci Fi is always a great stop for us!!

    Not a fan. We have eaten there twice and I would agree with the "sub-par" description. I just feel like there are too many better places to spend my dining dollar/credit. (but I go for food over atmosphere...now if we are going for atmosphere, it is absolutely unique and cool)

    For a better burger/sandwich place (in my opinion) I would choose Beaches N Cream. It is a nice boat ride from the Studios to Beach Club Resort.

    All that being said, I do recommend people try the places and make their own decision. I was pleasantly surprised by San Angel Inn in Epcot and that is a restaurant that also gets very mixed reviews.

    After eating at Sci - Fi for every trip since it opened back in '89 I hate the new menu but love the atmosphere.
    Sci-fi is a place that you should try just once
    if you are looking for a gourmet meal this is not it - if you have ever been to Johnny Rockets you will know what to expect at Sci-fi

    We make a light lunch out of the Sci Fi. We split a shake and sandwich with a soda. The food is ok but we like the A/C break and the cool atmosphere.

    So this will be our second time there and I booked it because nothing else is good on the property anymore and mamas is closed for refurb during our stay. We are eating at 6:50 the park closes at 7.. Is the steak really not any good or the pasta?? I hate wasting a TS meal for burgers. Just not worth the money . I want something more there as we will only have starring rolls for an early lunch. I hate fat.. do you think I could order the steak ask for it to be lean and well done?? I hope they can let you do that or I could get the pasta

    I understand your concern. Here is how I think about DHS and dining. When I go there, not only do I think about dining options in the park, but also the resorts surrounding the park. For example, it is just a brief boat ride and you can easily get to the Beach and Yacht Club Resorts so there are other dining options.(Cape May Cafe, Beaches & Cream, Captain's Grill, Yachtsman's Steakhouse for signature dining) I am not sure but I think you can even get to the Boardwalk. So just like when I go to MK, I think about dining on the monorail loop, you have options that are easily accessible outside DHS.

    I go there every trip, I love it!

    I get a milkshake and the penne pasta. I am a vegetarian, so I don't have shrimp in it, but it is a GREAT pasta dish! Nothing too fancy, but who wants fancy food with their 'Attack of the 50 Ft Woman'?

    I've went a few times and vowed not to go again as it's just ok. This past trip we took my mom with us as a first timer and wanted her to see it. I actually liked my meal. We were on deluxe dining, so we got apps. I had the buffalo chick. potato skins...yummy. I had steak/potatoes which were ok. You can also get a milkshake on the dining plan. That was so thick and yummy. We ended up skipping dessert. If you've never been, I'd say to try it, then you will know.

    here's my take.

    This is one of my favorite places to snack. Mostly because of the setting and ambience. I love the feel, the look, and the fun. The food is just an extra. If you are going for a fun meal and not so much fine dining, you will have a great time.

    I had the chili, onion rings, and a milkshake. If you read the menu, this is two appetizers and a shake. Still filling, still not getting crazy price wise, and not going cheap either. It was a fun experience and I would do it again. Keep the fun perspective in mind and you should do fine.

    Try it It's a must every visit for our family. It's not worth a TS though, in my opinion, if your on the dining plan. We pay cash.

    I don't think we'll be going back after our last visit. We had advance dining reservations and still had to wait about an hour to get seated. There were people who were seated after us and got their food before us. It wasn't worth the 2+ hours we spent there.

    The atmosphere is awesome. The food is pretty good. I haven't been there since they switched the menu but lunch was always a good bet.

    Sci-Fi has great onion rings and Milkshakes. The burgers, OK nothing fabulous but good. WE like going there for Lunch. Don't expect a gourmet fine dining experience. though. It doesn't pretend to be California Grill, or Artist Point. I don't know why some people expect fine food in a theme park restaurant. I know, I know, it's the prices.

    But go in with the appropriate expectations and you'll have a great time there. We love visiting the Sci-fi Dine in. It's super cheesy-tacky fun!
