TYPICAL RAINFOREST ATMOSPHERE

We visited for lunch, at the exact moment there was a switch over from breakfast. Some of the group ordered breakfast and some ordered lunch items. We were informed by the management that it would be a 15 minute wait for the lunch items. However, we did expect the breakfast food to come out... read more

This was awesome. I wanted fries and a burger - I got fries and a burger. The portions were enormous. The burger was average but the fries made up for it. It's a pretty cool atmosphere in there, it kinda feels as if you're in the jungle. Cool music, nice staff and animal sounds playing every so often. It's not... More

Service friendly, setting fun with thunder storms and moving animals. The food was okay but nothing special.

A little dark but other than that, food was good. The kids menu and drink (frog cup) was very good so we definitely took it home.

We came here out of convenience, as this is located in the MGM for breakfast. The place is cool looking but the food is very average and overpriced. It honestly wasn't worth it and had we not been starving for breakfast, we wouldn't have gone here at all. The breakfast options are pretty limited and cost between $12-16 dollars for... More

This is a great place to take the kids, especially those under 10. The food is fine, nothing special, but good for the price. It's the atmosphere to go for......the little ones will love it.

This place has some neat, albeit outdated, animatronic animals scattered throughout the restaurant in a rainforest setting that will appeal to young children. You will also encounter a few large fish tanks teaming with a multitude of colorful aquatic critters. At certain intervals, a mock lightning storm will occur: the lights flash on and off, and the robotic wildlife “freaks... More

We have gone here several times because it seemed fair to give them another and then another chance. The grandkids really are entertained by the rain forest and the ambience. But if you are hungry I would recommend that you go somewhere else. The service has been extremely slow even when it has not been crowded and the food is... More

Obviously a very busy place having waited 40 minutes for a table. Once seated had to wait 5-10 minutes for the server to come. We ordered drinks and meals at the same time because we didn't know when he might come back. It's quite expensive but the food is average, I guess you're paying for the name!

Good food. Wish drink prices weren't so high. Good food & service was great. If going with a group of people, I'd recommend making reservations.
