A whole other world to eat at

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... read more

Like atmosphere! Good service! Food was good but, next time I would rather sit somewhere else other than the bar. Just to experience the place better!

I often go to Legends and have a lot of fun there, but am never to sure where to eat. Many places in the area have kinda expensive food and it doesn’t make it the best place to get food for cheaper, however this place is isn’t very expensive at all for the atmosphere they offer. Many times the portions... More

Okay this is a kid venue, we expected the food to be fair...wrong it was excellent and the service was great! All of the dinosaurs were fun and they moved and made noise plus the aquariums were fantastic and the ocean creatures were great. We sat in the jelly fish for dinner. After dinner the kids played in the sand... More

We went here with a toddler and rainforest cafe expectations. It def exceeded them. It's a fun place for young kids due to all the animals and aquariums. The staff were eerily accommodating with multiple people greeting and waiting on us. The food was actually really good. We had been to the rainforest cafe several times for our little guy... More

First off, do not go on a Saturday night! They estimated our wait time at around 2hrs, and the place was pure chaos! We came back on Sunday for lunch and got seated right away, and were able to walk around and look at everything.Like all the other reviews say the food is pricey, but I didn't think it was... More

The kids had a great time. But very expensive. The menu on trip advisor is wrong. Take the prices listed and as about 3-5 dollars to each thing to get a more accurate pricing. But very fun!

Where do I begin? I had heard this wasn't a place to go for good food, but kids really seem to like it. Our 5 year old granddaughter wanted to go here for her 5th birthday, so being the good grandmother we went. Since we were bringing our own cake, I wanted to be sure it was okay and that... More

Great for kids, food was ok, a little expensive but the kids love it and thats why we went. Service left a lot to be desired, and seem to take a long time to get food.
