For those that haven't heard, Landry's (Rainforest Cafe) is opening up a new dinosaur themed restaurant at Downtown Disney called the T-Rex Cafe.

I saw it the other day and it is coming along nicely (and quickly!). It's going in between Pleasure Island and Marketplace and is close to the McDonalds. The menu looks to be exactly like Rainforest Cafe but with prehistoric names. I'm not a big fan of the food at Rainforest, but I love the atmosphere. Maybe now Universal will host a Jekyll and Hyde Club, which in my opinion is the best of the themed restaurants that are out there.

Here is their link for anyone interested: http://www.trexcafe.com/
And here is a video showing their Kansas City location: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Z_kbE107jgg

I'm intrested to see how this turns out. My only gripe is that it may be too similar to Rain Forest. The menu doesn't look that original but then again these type of places are all about the atmosphere.

I've been to 4 different Rain Forest's and I've never had a bad meal there. I read all these negative reviews on the DISBoards about it all the time. :confused:

I've been to the one at Sawgrass plenty of times. I live 30 minutes away. Still never had a bad meal there. It's not the nicest one but hey, what do you except inside a mall?

I enjoy Rainforest....It's a fun resturant so I'm excited for the T-Rex resturant, it should be great fun!!

Side note....if Universal were to do a Jekyl and Hyde resturant it better be soooo bad assss...the one in New York City which I finally went to on my last bday was really boring and really not scary...the theming was pretty cool but it was missing something...I guess it would be the darkness and scariness

We had one in our mall and I loved it. My favorite was before you are seated you have to enter this room and spikes shoot out of the roof and lower down towards you. Everybody has to duck down and then the Crypt Keeper tells us we passed. I thought it was so cool. Does the NY one have that?

I like Rainforest Cafe strictly for the atmosphere, but every single time I've eaten there I've been disappointed. Actually that's a lie...I had a pizza once which wasn't half bad, but all the other times were just blah. I mean it wasn't yucky but it definitely wasn't worth the price. I'll try out the T-Rex place though.

You're paying for the atmosphere. The quality of the food isn't even up to par with your typical Chilis/Applebees/Friday's/etc. which is, of course, cheaper.

I'm really excited for the T-Rex, of course for the atmosphere, not the food. If you're looking for fine dining these theme joints aren't gonna have it! I have been to rainforest cafe here many times and in Vegas several and the food has always been alright, the prices though are really steep! For the money I spent for a family of four on lunch at rainforest I at least want one of the monkeys to hit me on the head or spit on the table ya know?

i have eaten at several joes crab shacks (owned by the same company) and love them! their lunch specials are yummy and since its right next to my work...even better!

I have never ate at The Rainforest cafe in all of my trips to Orlando. I am not a fan of them restaurants. The food is over priced and it is no different then going to TGIF, Applebees and Chili's so why pay to?

If you want to eat a great meal in Orlando find Girdonnio's pizza I spelled it wrong but it is really good.

With restaurants like Rainforest and T-Rex I guess you're really paying for the experience and atmosphere...not so much the food. :shrug:

The only place I have had awesome service and a great atmosphere combined is Hard Rock Cafe. I need to go back and try these again.

Rainforest does have an excellent atmosphere.

I think that this place is going to be amazing. I havn't been around those parts recently to see any of the prgress so I have no clue what it looks like. I personally think that thr Rainforest Cafe's have great food with usualy good service to go along with it. I'm looking forward to how this whole thing turns out. Hope it's great!

I despise Rainforest Café. However, I live right next to sawgrass mills mall and there is one with an indoor play ground. Since I have a 6 year old, I visit this horrible place often. It’s always crowed, the food sucks and my bill is always over $100.00….for crappy food…Oh well, Lex loves it…

I don’t recall a boat, but then again I’ve only lived in Ft. Lauderdale for about 6 years. I never noticed the playground until my daughter wanted to play on it…I think she was around 1 ½ or 2.. There is still an alligator there for the coins. I don’t go near it because it creeps me out..:look:

14 August 2008: T-Rex to open in October?

With the release of the Dinosaur delivery photos, Disney also mentioned an opening date of mid October 2008, which is almost a month earlier than the previous expected opening date of mid November.

I really hope this opens earlier so I can make ressies while I'm in WDW in November! The interior 2 story tall dinosaur has arrived as well. Is anyone going to Downtown Disney anytime soon?? I'd love to see some pics! Please and thanks :D

But the Japanese have been dealing with that very same problem for YEARS. You try to have a pleasant afternoon at the beach with the family and BOOM! Godzilla. The solution? Why, giant robots of course. Lots and lots of giant robots.

On topic, this sounds like an interesting novelty, but if it's anything like the Rainforest Cafe, they'll charge exhorbitant prices for really crappy food, interspersed with animatronic dinosaurs doing their thing. Because, you know, there's nothing I enjoy more with my watered down beer and bone-dry chicken sandwich than really loud roaring noises.

The boys and I are geeked up for it. Anything with giant dinosaurs has got to be good. And honestly, nobody goes here for gourmet food anyways. You know it's gonna be a crappy burger but maybe the two story T-Rex will drool down into it for us!

I always try to eat at (as well as buy a shirt from) the Hard Rock in (insert touristy destination I am at this time here), so I like my themed restaurants, and I actually like the food at HRC too. Of course, this is a different company, and I vaguely remember the last time I went to a Rain Forest Cafe and finding the pizza I got to be meh. Not-so-great food won't stop me from checking this place out next time I'm at Downtown Disney.

Bsquare
08-19-2008, 07:51 PM
Oh, sure I love the animatronic animals...especially the monkeys in Rainforest Cafe. (Too bad they don't fling poo.) But sometimes I want to watch AA's and sometimes I just want to eat. Last time I ate there, we were seated right behind the AA elephants, which was fun for about 15 minutes. After that, the novelty of loud trumpeting and a twitching tail (all we could see from our seats) wore right off, and simply became annoying.

I DO like the periodic storm effects, though. I also admit that the menu sounds interesting, but I'll have to eat before I judge. And of COURSE I will eat there at least once, just to see the dinos. But I don't expect it to be a regular thing. Unless of course the T-Rex DOES drool on your food, which would be incredibly awesome.

The worst is when you are trying to have a nice meal with a date and you get seated by the gorillas or elephants and every child in the restaurant flocks around your table to try and touch them. All while their parents eat their meals and say, "isn't that cute?"

I've been to Rainforest here in Orlando a couple of times, and I've been to the one at Sawgrass once. The food wasn't bad, not as bad as you people say it is, but it most certainly is overpriced. And the crowds, ugh. With so many wonderful choices of dining venues in the Orlando area, with similar food and lower prices, like TGIF, why would I want to wait an hour to pay twice as much.

I might visit T-Rex just to check it out, but I am not a fan of themed restaurants either. Typically sucky food, high prices, lots of noise, and great atmosphere. I'd rather eat at a dump with great food. Now, if I was a kid, I'd be all about these places, especially something with dinosaurs. I was a HUGE dinosaur lover when a small child.

We are going this Sunday for the wife's birthday. I just called and learned a couple things. 1. As Kristi said, they are not taking priority seating reservations, they said they will start but not until after the first of the year. 2. Disney dining does not handle their information, you need to call the T-Rex directly, although the WDW Dine line was very nice and gave me the number.

If we can get in I will for sure get some pictures!

Ok, we made it here today. The wait was only 40 minutes which I was actually pleasantly surprised about. Food is good, I rate it equal to Rainforest, but believe me, I'm no food critic. A good burger and I'm happy. Kids menu is the usual fare. Food is definitely on the pricey side of things though. I had the Bronto burger, which was huge, and good, but was pricey at $12, could go to do double Bronto burger for $15 but really, who needs that much?

Atmosphere was amazing. Felt kinda like the rainforest cafe but with huge and loud dinosaurs. The ice cave room is incredible, all the walls of "ice" change color and it's really cool, bad pun, lol! Gift shop is smaller than you would expect, build a dino is great, kids both did one. They also have a dino dig area which is smaller, but the same thing as the dino dig at Animal Kingdom. Nice activity for kids while you wait for a table.

Service was very good and pretty fast, but we didn't feel rushed to get out. They encouraged us to go around and take pictures but when I started video taping they asked me to stop as there is no video photography permitted inside. Weird, I would think they would want videos out on the web for publicity, didn't understand that one.

I took a lot of pictures and I'll try to post them tonight if I can.

Ok, now for part 2, starting out with where we sat, the Seqouia (sp?) room:

http://i35.tinypic.com/9sw01d.jpg

http://i36.tinypic.com/2eg4b54.jpg

http://i33.tinypic.com/ielc9k.jpg

Behind us was the ice cave room, all the walls change color from blue to purple to red and back to blue, really cool effect!

http://i34.tinypic.com/14wy32g.jpg

http://i36.tinypic.com/103in7o.jpg

This was right behind us, it's two huge booths built into a giant triceratops. This is one of the few dinosaurs that doesn't move:

Now moving on to the ice cave room, also where the restrooms are in case you need a break:

http://i35.tinypic.com/2gy20qh.jpg

I didn't see the official name of the next room but we'll call it the fire room. It had the kitchen of fire on one side where they are cooking:

http://i36.tinypic.com/2i16c8.jpg

http://i38.tinypic.com/2rdyqzd.jpg

http://i35.tinypic.com/2m3mdl3.jpg

This is the bar, near the entrance that is covered by a giant octopus and it's tentacles, which move. There are also a couple really nice aquariums and really cool jellyfish light fixtures-which my crappy camera flash totally messed up...

And finally, since I forgot earlier, here is the entrance Dino (kinda like the purple elephant at Rainforest) and a shot of the kids dino dig area:

Yeah the ice cave room is really cool, ha ha. Next time we go we are going to try to request to sit there. Only downside to it is there aren't any dinos or cool animatronics in there. Pretty much everything in the whole T-REX cafe does move too!

I'm so eating there in a few weeks! So how was the food? I heard they have a really good cotton candy martini :yum: which I sooo want now! I also heard they have a meteor shower every few minutes (like rainforest has a thunderstorm) was it a cool effect?!

snoman
10-19-2008, 10:57 PM
Food was good I suppose, had a burger so, yeah. My wife had some kinda pasta thing that she said was really good. The menu really looked just like the Rainforest Cafe though just with Dino themed names.

Didn't try the cotton candy martini but it does sound good. Have to drive 45 minutes home and all! They did have a meteor shower every fifteen minutes but it's kinda stupid. The whole place gets dark and you hear crashing noises (like meteor crashes), all the dinos go haywire, in the room where we were they have red strobes flashing in the vines above and in the front rooms they have graphics of meteors shooting across the ceiling. If I had to choose I would take the rainstorm as the meteor shower was pretty cheesey.

I was at T-Rex Cafe on 10-15, the day after they opened. The wait was 60 minutes, but I was by myself, so I sat at the Shark Bar. I had a frozen Mojito and the filet dinner. The drink was to die for, the meal was just OK especially given the $30 price. My entire meal, including tip and tax, was $50.

The decor is absolutely beautiful. Here are some of my pictures. I took them without the flash so you can see some of the lighting effects.

I totally forgot to mention... Jase and I ate here a couple weeks ago and I actually thought it was pretty decent. I had the parmesan crusted mahi mahi and it was delicious. There was a little bit too much breading, but the whole meal was very filling.

We didn't have to wait too long. It was about 30 minutes and we sat on the border of the Ice Cave and the room with the fire.

We'll probably go back next weekend when my mom is in town!

We went again today and got there around noon. We were seated immediately. Service was sloooooooooooow again. Very slow. We ordered the Artifact Stack (onion rings appetizer) and it didn't come until about 45 minutes after we ordered. Our actual meal took about 40 minutes to get. I had the burger and it was better than last time and I love their waffle fries. The menu isn't too great for picky eaters like myself. I thought they'd have the brick oven pizza like Rain Forrest, but they didn't. I really don't have a reason to go back anytime soon. The service isn't very good (hopefully only because it's so new) and the food I actually will eat I can get elsewhere that taste better and is cheaper.

Well, we drove down to the Caribe Royal hotel to pick up my uncle who is in town for a few days and take him to dinner. I figured, heck we're close, lets go check out the T-Rex Cafe. The wait to get in at 8:00 was an hour and 45 minutes. Screw that, we said and headed to Fulton's Crab House.

Don't eat at Fulton's unless you're prepared to spend about $50 bucks for a meal. Seriously, the average price of an entree is around $35.

I went in January. We got there around 6:30pm on a Wednesday night and were seated within 10 minutes (there was 4 of us). The atmosphere is GREAT and I prefer the theming of T-Rex much more than Rainforest Cafe. Additionally, the food we had was head and shoulders better. We started with Dexter's Dual Dip which was very good. I ended up ordering the Paleo Shrimp. They were EXCELLENT! Not too spicy and very flavorful. I was highly impressed.

I remember reading an article about the future of Landry's and it possibly not making it through 2009... not sure the effect it would have on WDW but it was the first thing that came to my mind. I'll see if I can still find the article.

EDIT:

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/15-Companies-That-Might-Not-usnews-14279875.html


Landry's Restaurants. (LNY; about 17,000 employees; stock down 66%). This restaurant chain, which operates Chart House, Rainforest Café, and other eateries, needs $400 million in new financing to finalize a buyout deal dating to last June. If lenders come through, the company should have enough cash to ride out the recession. But at least two banks have already balked, leading to downgrades of the company's debt and the prospect of a cash-flow crunch.

We went a couple weeks back and really loved it actually.
We had a 45 minute wait on a Wednesday night. But it really wasn't so bad because you can kill 45 minutes in WoD EASY!
Plus I got to meet up with Sledge & Beachgurl for a bit :D
My son got a kick out of his half yard icee, thought he was all special having the biggest drink at the table.
We sat right by the Wooly Mammoths in a comfy spacious booth.
I thought the food was pretty good actually. I had the chicken salad crossiant sandwich, had tarragon in it like my dad makes it, so I really liked it.
The hubs got the appetizer sampler as his meal which was onion rings, a cheddar jack queso dip and chips, quesadillas and bruschetta. All pretty yum.
I was impressed that is wasn't ALL fried crap like most samplers are.

Here are some pics...

Gift card as in the Disney Fun Card they give you on your birthday? If so, you aren't able to use the Fun Card at dinning locations.


use for certain purchases including select merchandise, recreation or tour experiences, or for Disney's PhotoPass® on-site services at participating locations at Walt Disney World® Resort

Not sure if this is even what you were talking about, but thought I'd save you the hassle of finding out later if this was in fact the gift card in your post.

Awesome. I love Kona. What did y'all get? Their teriyaki steak is the best steak anywhere. Kona is a much better choice than T-Rex Cafe. :lol:

Yes, I do agree that Kona Cafe has a better menu than T-Rex Cafe even though I haven't eaten at T-Rex Cafe yet, heheheheh. We had Kona Salad and Sticky Wings. For our entree, my wife had the Slow Roasted Prime Rib and I had the Macadamia Nut and Chive Crusted Mahi Mahi (I like the original recipe way better). And for dessert, we shared the Banana-Chocolate Creme Brulee. Sooooooooo good, lol. I love eating at Kona Cafe. :thumbs: :happy:

I really liked T-Rex. I just went there in May. My family and I tried to get reservations for it last summer, but it wasn't open yet! My dad called and the girl was like, "I've never heard of it." It was SO funny!
