The wait was short & the refreshing scenery was welcoming. The Cobb salad was awesome. ..Real brewed tea with lemon. ...just what you need after walking the hot boardwalk.

My daughter absolutely loves eating at the Rainforest Café. She is an animal lover and just adores the atmosphere. We went for lunch and were seated surprisingly quickly as there is always a long wait. They were busy but not nearly as busy as I have seen them on other visits. Our waiter took the order for our drinks and... More

Fun for kids, kitschy. Food was okay- over priced! Be prepared to exit and enter through the gift shop! VERY crowded and hard to maneuver during dinner rush. Making things worse, they carry trays of food and dishes through the already overcrowded gift shop/waiting area to get to the outdoor seating. We will go next time we are in town-... More

Enjoyed everything but the service! The store was awesome. The restaurant itself was very cool especially with having a 4 year old. The animal movements and sounds were neat and were actually enjoyable while eating. The service was lousy. There was an hour and half...which wasn't the problem. Once we were seated it took our waitress 20 mins just to... More

We were down the shore this past July 4th weekend and the weather was not cooperating so we all decided to take a ride into Atlantic City to pass the day. Since we had my two young nieces with us, we decided to take them to the Rainforest. We had made reservations so there was no problem in getting seated.... More

The food was so-so, my drink very expensive and poorly made, and the service was ok. I wouldn't go back.

Visited the Rainforest Cafe for my birthday. Was on the fence about it due to mixed reviews but we thought it was fantastic. The food was great, you got a lot of food for your money. The staff was excellent and the restaurant itself is just really cool. We went around 11:30 on a Saturday afternoon and there was no... More

Decided to eat here even though it looked like kid city. Was totally surprised. They greet you at the door and give you a passport and escort you to your seat though a beautiful jungle like setting. Every 15 minutes all the animals on the walls come to life and the kids are amazed. Then every half hour a lightning... More

Definitely a tourist attraction, but the food is actually AMAZING. I suggest you get a coloring book no matter how old you are, not just because the service is horrible, but because the atmosphere is very kid like you might as well commit to it! Loved everything except the service. The volcano desert is A MUST!
