This is always a treat to see the decorations and the atmosphere. The food is good and service is average. It almost seemed like they wanted us there longer so we keep drinking. There is nothing different or special from any other Rainforest Cafe except I did find them to be a little slower than usual.

We had been to the RFC in Disney World and thoroughly enjoyed it, so we expected a similar experience at this location, but that wasn't the case. Most of the staff were very sloppy in appearance and not really on top of things. My husband had the pot roast and enjoyed the meat, but all of the veggies were hard-not... More

Wanted to bring our 4 year old twins to this restaurant for the entertainment. My husband and I had been to the one in Chicago years ago and loved it. This location did not have the same effect. The kids did enjoy themselves but got bored quickly with the show. It didn't help that the service was extremely slow. I... More

We loved the Rainforest Cafe! It was our first time visiting the place. Of course the decor and special effects had us in awe, but we also had a great meal. We didn't leave the store without spending more on gifts for our son with wasn't even with us!

We went for lunch, we like it there. It is over an hour drive for us. We don't have anything like it closer to our home. We like it because it reminds of us of being in Disney. The menu is pricey. We have been a few times, but the recent visit was probably our least favorite. We did make... More

I took a trip to MA it was a 6 hour drive and my friend and I decided to go here for a new experience. When we got seated which was fast for a Saturday little did we know what was in store. We knew this place was for kids and we were expecting it. However, kids were screaming and... More

We go for the animatronics, great novelty restaurant. Kids like it. As for the food, it is pricy for the quality we get. Recommend for children, once in a while. Atmosphere is great, but foods lack.

This place is amazing for kids - animatronic animals all over the place, giant fish tanks, waterfalls - seriously, it’s cool. It is VERY loud, so if you have a kid with any type of sensory issues this is not the place. My daughter loves it, but usually blocks her ears during the "thunder storm". The food is ok at... More

This is our favorite family spot! Pretty good prices, a little on the higher side, but definitely worth it. We've never had anything we didn't like. The place is great! Always free balloons and frog crowns for the kids. A "thunderstorm" every half hour, fish tanks and animated animals all over the restaurant. The servers are always great and very... More

We were seated next to the water feature so my friend asked to move to a seat away because it was too noisy, of course the host moved us to the table right next to us in front of the bathrooms. Now not only could we not hear each other because of the waterfall but we got to see all... More
