I had been to Rainforest Cafe previously and was very disappointed in the quality of the food and the fact that they charge $4.00 for every refill of lemonade. We took my great nieces there last weekend and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very tasty and they did not charge for refills of our drinks. It truly is... More

We met family here for lunch, what an exciting adventure for the little ones! The adults were able to enjoy a good meal and watch the excitement on the grandkid's faces. I thought prices were reasonable and a nice selection of food.

Made a reservation to eat here while we were down in Auburn Hills for the Frozen on Ice show. Got in quickly, and My 4 year old daughter & 2 year old nephew had a ball shopping and eating! Gift shop prices are fair, and I didn't think the food was that high priced at all, and it was good!... More

The food is of very average quality with small portions at a high price. It is very busy with lots of children. The kids had a good time even though we were seated right at the entrance with people constantly walking by. A plus, you can go get on the wait list and then go shopping. You return at a... More

On a recent Saturday at 2:15 p.m., we wanted to have lunch at Rainforest....taking a break from the Sea Life Aquarium right across the way. We were asked if we had a reservation---answer, No. Then, we were told we could be put on a waiting list with a FIVE HOUR wait!! Five. Hours. Until 7:30 p.m.. With three hungry boys!... More

We enjoyed the food and the kids enjoyed the jungle entertainment while we ate. We did not splurge on the volcano desert as we were all too full but enjoyed seeing many of them as they were delivered.

Brought my niece here for the first time. She was very apprehensive at first due to the loud animal noises and the storm. The resteraunt was very busy and at first, we had great service, but it dwindled pretty fast. The wait staff appeared unhappy and had false smiles with all the customers. The menu items were overpriced and the... More

We usually do our best to avoid this type of establishment but we thought maybe our daughter and her 4 year old friends would enjoy. It is painfully obvious that most of their food is overpriced and frozen. It is what it is, you come here for the decor and hope the children enjoy themselves.
