Fun for kids

We had a group of 16 people - seven adults and the rest were children under five. We made a reservation and everything went off without a hitch. The service was good and our waitress was very efficient. The kids really enjoyed the animals and the thunderstorm. The food is fine. It's not great... read more

A little pricey, but well worth it if you have never been or if you have kids. Several choices and the décor is great. I suggest you sit at the bar if you don't have kids. The bartenders are great!

Everything was great. Our server was great and really pushed a great time into an amazing experience!! We will be sure to request his section again. He was helpful, informative and even though he was super busy made us feel like his only priority. Thanks Terrence!

Food average. SLOW service on a busy spring break evening. The simulated storms get old after the first couple of times when you are waiting for your food. Don't get sucked into buying the souvenir mugs and glasses. They add mega bucks to your bill. Children's menu lacks imagination and even for kids, portions are small. Best part of the... More

We went there on my birthday and had awesome fun. Be sure to make reservations though or you might be in for a long wait. The food was really good. I had fish and chips, my son had the Bacon Burger as well as my boyfriend. Both loved it. My grandson had the grilled cheese and his direct quote was,... More

This is not the type of place we go to all the time and from looking around the room that was true of others too. But we literally only saw our waitress three times once to take our order, once to bring the food and last for the bill. If you are going to charge $14 for a burger than... More

Was more impressed with the decor rather than the food. Waitress wasn't very good but it was a crazy busy day so I understood. The food wasn't hot and the menu was just lacking anything impressive. Prices were outrageous. Went for the ambience and the fact that my 5 year old thought it was cool. Will probably not go back... More

This was our first time here. Enjoyed the food, friendly staff and all the animals and decor. There was so much to see. Loved the fish at the entrance. Help give my son something to look at while we were waiting to be seated.

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
