Still at least IOA has an award.
Published: July 2, 2007 at 1:18 PMFifth Year in a row that Mythos has been voted number one themed park restaurant is quite remarkable. It's incredible that one restaurant was able to stand out above all others, new and old for five years consecutively, hats off to the crew of Mythos for five years of great food, a good atmosphere, and great service.

My wife and I frequent Mythos and one thing you must know about them is they LISTEN to their customers!
If they make a change to the menu and get constructive feedback that the items they took off are missed, they quickly make a change, thus the fact that the famous Banana Chocolate Gooey Cake is STILL a local favorite after a short time off the menu.
Kudos to Mythos. They really are that good!
Published: July 2, 2007 at 2:49 PMI keep going back on forth on whether to include all "on property" restaurants in the theme park restaurant category, which would bring in the Downtown Disney/CityWalk-type venues as well those at the hotels. My concern has been not getting votes for those locations, but if I get enough time this fall to incorporate those into the database, I'm becoming more convinced that there's a demand to read about and rate them, so I will try to do that.
That said, this is emerging as the second most-competitive category, after best park. Mythos is gonna have to keep stepping it up to get a sixth-straight award!

Published: July 3, 2007 at 5:31 AMHi- Is Mythos only open for lunch? I'm confused on the hours. Will be at IOA for wife's birthday and considering taking the family to Mythos.
Published: July 4, 2007 at 5:53 PMKevin.....Mythos is open for lunch. So you can take your wife. I have been to IOA many times and have season passes, but have never tried Mythos. Looked to go there a few times and never did, but you can bet I am going to try it now!

For a great all-around experience, encompassing themeing, customer service, shows, and family fun, PLUS thrill rides, it's hard to top BGE. Also, there's something very "repeatable" about the experience there -- we go often and never tire of the park. If it's crowded, we skip the big rides and go to shows or just enjoy walking around or riding things like the train and skyride. If it's not crowded, we hit all the coasters and big thrill rides -- sometimes over and over!
Keep up the good work, Busch Entertainment!
