Food is ok....

Went here for lunch and drinks during a shopping trip. Service was good. Drinks tasted like there was way to much lemon or something in them and the food was just ok. Its expensive for what you get.

Recently took my Grandkids to the Rainforest Café in the Great Lakes Crossing Outlet Mall in Auburn Hills, MI. Before we even got near the entrance to the Café, my 3 year old Granddaughter spotted the large snake hanging from the ceiling and immediately started to cry and didn't want to go any further. When we finally did get her... More

Loved the interactive animals that would go off every 15 minutes. We got to see two storms while we were there and the kids really enjoyed those!! The staff was gracious and friendly. Food was good, would definitely go back!

My adult children and I enjoyed our visit. We arrived for an early dinner and there was no waiting for a table. We enjoyed the friendly staff and the food was good but overpriced. We ordered the appetizer sampler and fish dinners. It is such a great atmosphere, with something to look at every where. We are animal lovers, so... More

We got there at afresh time before the dinner rush even though we weren't concerned since we are landrys members. The service was great and the food was excellent, we both got the chicken faitas which... More
