A Different Dining Experience

Yes this place caters to tourist, its on the boardwalk of all places. I look past the tourism aspect and try to appericiate this place for what it is, a different dining experience. I think if you want a different experience you need to expect to pay for it. If you want something average, go to... read more

Visited with a friend and it was so much fun. Really enjoyed the whole theme of the restaurant and the staff were amazing. Unfortunately the food was not so great, it was cheap pasta and the Volcano cobb salad that I had was not good. Nothing was made there and for that price i expected more. So overall, really fun...

We have been to this boardwalk location before a few years ago. This visit was disappointing and we may not go back. We were seated right away which was good. I noticed the menu has been shortened. The entrees fit on one page. The prices are so high. My husband was interested in a seasonal dish and it was $27!... More

The only thing wrong is the menu. there was no real variety nothing that stood out and we ended up getting the usual things that you would get at Mcdonalds chicken fried chicken with fries. the drinks were great can't complain. the server was awesome as well, tended to all of our request but there was really no AHA moment...

I wish this restaurant would have more locations around the U.S and the globe. It's a cool, relaxing and fun place to come to with a family, friends or colleagues. They offer great cocktails and other drinks from a bar. The prices a very moderate, won't break a budget at all. It's another positive thing about Atlantic City- Rainforest Cafe

Food is AC is very expensive. So we went here twice. It's more affordable and it's good food. It was located next to our hotel. Convenient and clean. Would recommend.

Decided to try the Rainforest Cafe after dining at non themed restaurants in Atlantic City, and we were glad we went there! The rainforest and animal themed decor is actually more relaxing than distracting, and we enjoyed the occasional rain storm complete with special effects mimicking thunder and lightning. I had a steak, and my wife had pasta, and the... More

We were a group of four. We went on a Monday evening. I'm assuming our server was busy, but we waited such a long time to be greeted at out table. Drinks took even longer. The food was good, although they forgot half my husbands meal. We would go again.

My husband and I came here on our first trip to AC 4 years ago...I know it is a chain restaurant and we probably could have found a local place, but honestly their food here is good for a quick lunch which is what we were looking for. There were maybe 6 other people eating when we arrived, we were... More
