Neat place to take the kids!

The experience is really cool and all the interior decorations are awesome! Food wasn't the best but it wasn't terrible.

Other than a longer wait than what we were quoted, our trip here was very good. Our small daughter was entertained the whole time between the aquarium, dinosaurs, animatronics, and sounds. That is not an easy feat with a toddler! The food was better than expected, all of it really good except the fried shrimp and some sort of sweet... More

The special dino effects were exciting when we walked in and explored a bit for the first 10 minutes. Well done and not disappointing for the kids; however, only half the restaurant was full and we still had a 30 minute wait. Odd, until you realize the have zero seating in the front so you are forced to wander the... More

We had gone here before, and it was okay, but not great. This time was downright disappointing. My husband and I shared the sampler platter appetizer, so we would get a variety of things to try. All I can figure is that you pay for the environment and ambiance, not the quality of the food. The chicken tenders were AWFUL!... More

Fun for the kids, ours loved the atmosphere. Lots to look at. Lots to buy, so be prepared to say no if you are only coming to eat. ;) My food was okay, a shrimp pasta, but it was slightly spicy...not an issue in itself, but I couldn't finish it. Daughter Loved her pasta, son said that the cheeseburgers were... More

We went on a Sunday for lunch. We were able to get right in. Took a bit to get the food. It was good. Prob on par with applebees, and that is much better than I would expect from a theme resturant. The dinos are really fun, my kid had a blast.

I took my boys here during our vacation and I thought they had a good amount of things to do while waiting for a table. Then we got to a table and waited forty five minutes from ordering until I decided we couldn't wait anymore. I left cash on the table for our drinks, let the waitress know that we... More

We have been to Rainforest Cafe many times and thought we would try out this new concept from Landry's. We had an amazing time. The food is a little on the expensive side for a family restaurant, but when you add in the theme and fun it is worth it. The portions are big and easily shared if needed. There... More
