This restaurant is good for families with small children and kids' birthday parties. There is a model train layout with trains that are controlled by the kids. At the main bar, a train actually delivers your meal. There are also coin operated rocking machines and a play area. Tyler's Tender is perfect for an ice cream stop.

I had written an earlier review of this place that mentioned terrible service and poor quality food for a party we had there. Well, my granddaughter convinced us to return and it was terrific. The service is friendly and efficient and our food was very good. She had the cheese pizza with a cup of fruit, her dad had a... More

This place was recommended by a friend so we brought our kids there. The menu looked promising but the meals were not very good. I ordered a chicken breast sandwich. Two bites in and it felt rubbery so I cut it in half to see that it was NOT fully cooked. That is such a turnoff for me! Yes I... More

A very disappointing place. We took our granddaughter and her friends to Tyler's and found the following: The server got our order completely wrong The food was even worse than one might expect for a kids place. Really bad. The "games" are limited, especially for small children who can't reach the machines.

My grand kids love this place. Also, anyone can enjoy the food, which is nothing like the Cheese place down the street. There are games in the back like pinball, if you are into that. You will like it.

We have been taking our 6 year old granddaughter here since she started solid food. The food is really good and reasonably priced. Of course, now that she is older, they get even with the arcade! Younger children love the train set up, train food delivery and train ride. We are happy to have a new grandchild to have an... More

The food here is what one might expect: Greasy stuff for children. But the service is awful. The young ladies working there seem completely clueless and border on rude. We had to track down our server twice on a day when there were 5 people in the place other than the three of us. For a child under 5, there... More

Food was awful and way overpriced for what you get. If ur kids want to see trains take them to the museum or buy them a train set. $50 wasted on a terrible meal

We've been several times. The food is very good and the portions seem appropriate. The noise from the trains can sometimes be a little overbearing but we get used to it pretty quick. The servers are ALWAYS friendly.

This is a great place for kids. For adults, its great to take kids, because the food is good.....for a kid's place. Reasonable prices. An arcade that kids love....could be upgraded as often, games don't work.

Thank Barbara S
