  • My daughter loved this place of course. She picked out the Rebecca doll to take home. The store set up was well done, everything was perfectly in place & decorated nicely. There was so much to see, an...  more »

  • This place is all about experiencing time with people who love their dolls and being catered to. Price is something to consider if you are on a budget. We come here as a birthday treat, so the money I would spend on a gift, I spend here instead and the birthday girl enjoys herself immensely! The food is good, but not great. Please keep that in mind.
  • My granddaughter is a big American Girl fan. For every holiday I buy her a doll or outfit or SOMETHING American Girl. Recently I took her to American Girl Place for her birthday and I'm so happy that I did. She was wide-eyed at all the dolls and accessories on display. We had lunch at the American Girl Cafe as a special treat. The food was a little pricey but the smile on her face was worth it. She especially liked the pink lemonade and that they provided a chair for her doll! I highly recommend going here if you have a child in your life who loves American Girls.
  • Cafe review: Very pleasant weekday brunch experience. Our food was delicious, and our waiter, Keith, was friendly and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy. We would recommend arriving early enough to shop first if having brunch, because it can get busy the closer it gets to lunch time. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the meal price is a bit pricey.
  • My daughters loved it. As a pilgrimage for American Girl fans, it's great. Lots of interactive displays. But as with all AG stuff, prices are crazy.
  • My daughter was so excited to spend time at this store for her 7th birthday at the store. However she was treated so rudely by some of the staff she left a bit disappointed. It really is not acceptable for a place that should cater to children to be so rude
