Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Review

By:  Heather Leigh Carroll-Landon

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is one of the best restaurants to eat at for kids of all ages. No matter how old, everyone loves the rich shakes, the 50s drive-in theater atmosphere and the mouth watering cuisine. That is why this restaurant is one of the first to be reviewed for my dining guide of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater offers themed dining taking guests back to the 50’s as they sit in a vintage convertible table and enjoy classic sci-fi, monster and horror movies from the 50s and 60s. Large movie screens surround the dining area of the restaurant, giving each guest prime seating for watching one of the movies. Bring back memories while watching the movie under the stars that fill the night sky above. It is always night in the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater.

To start off make sure to order one of the thick and rich shakes in strawberry, chocolate or vanilla. It is definitely a must have over anything else on the menu. For those over 21 experience a mad scientist delight with a cosmic concoctions. Enjoy a shake with Baileys Irish Cream, a perfect combination.

The menu offers burgers, sandwiches, ribs, seafood, pasta, steak and salads with meals ranging from $15 to $36 per person for lunch or dinner. My recommendation is to order the Italian Grilled Chicken Sandwich for lunch. The seasoning and side was just enough to satisfy my hunger and still leave room for dessert. The sandwich was topped with Bruschetta and was served on a Kaiser Roll. I was a bit nervous at first to try it with the Bruschetta topping (not sure if I would like it), but when it arrived all worries went away. Disney sure knows how to had a flavor twist to a traditional sandwich. I never had a sandwich like this before, but know for sure I will order it again.

My dinner recommendation is the Shrimp Pasta, but I love both of those ingredients, so I could not go wrong with this order. The bow-tie pasta, shrimp, artichoke hearts and other ingredients was the perfect dinner. My mouth watered throughout the entire meal.

Though I did not have dessert when I was there the last time, the peanut-butter cake look absolutely decadent. I may have to try it next time.
As usual, the service was excellent. In true Walt Disney World fashion, the server was attentive and helped keep the atmosphere feel authentic. I will definitely go back.

Go back to my dining guide to see the full lunch, dinner and dessert menus for the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater.

The restaurant is located at the Backlot area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Advanced Dining Reservations are highly recommended, but not required, for this location and can be made by calling 407.WDW.DINE.
