    Which is better...50s Prime Time or Sci-Fi? We will have 3 adults and a 9 yr old. Thanks!

    Hi Charlene!

    Both restaurants offer a fun experience, but I will give you my personal opinion.

    I would choose 50's Prime Time Cafe.  My family and I love that restaurant.  I seriously feel like I am walking into my grandmother's house and kitchen when we go in.  My boys love watching all of the old black-and-white TV show clips before and during the meal.  They also love to "test" our server to see just how much trouble they can get into! (warning, don't put your elbows on the table!!)  The food is great and we always enjoy our visits here.

    The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is a great concept.  It also brings back great memories of trips to drive-in theaters as a child.  However, we were not blown away by this restaurant.  The food was not great and we didn't really enjoy the movie clips that were played on the big screen (they also looped a lot, so you ended up seeing the same thing multiple times).  Additionally, most of the seating is in "car" booths, which is really cute!  However,  it doesn't lend well to having conversations during your meals.  (there are regular tables there that you could request and possibly get)

    I think you guys would have fun at either place, but if I were to choose, I would choose 50's Prime Time Cafe.  

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
