Dining Overview

At the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater you’ll go back to a time to when drive-in movie theaters were all the rage. Vintage memorabilia, twinkling stars and the Hollywood backdrop really set the mood to make you feel like you took a step back in time.

After stepping into the “restaurant,” which actually feels more like stepping outside, you’ll be seated at either a car-shaped table or at one of the classic picnic benches at the back of the room. All seating has a view of the huge projection screen at the front of the restaurant where clips of classic Sci-Fi flicks from the 50s will entertain you while you dine. Expect to see lots of aliens, monsters and creatures from beyond while you chow down on wholesome, classic American fare.


There’s a wide variety of foods on the appetizer menu from shrimp and crab fondue to fried dill pickles. For the entrees the menu includes a flame-broiled burger, buffalo chicken salad, and an oven roasted turkey wrap. The menu is full of items that everyone in your party can enjoy!

  1. We try to get a reservation here every time we go. The burgers are good, but the milkshakes are even better. And the whole family loves the atmosphere.
