Fun Place!

We were taken to Rainforest by the group we were with and really enjoyed our visit. The cafe is geared somewhat toward kids, but my wife and I really enjoyed our visit. The rain forest design and the animitronics going on around us made it a noisy place, but that is to be expected. The kids in... read more

The atmosphere is always fun for the entire family. I strongly recommend exploring the Landrys Select Card offered by the restaurant. We have used this at Rainforest Cafe in both Katy and Grapevine. Both locations usually have a 30 to 90 minute wait for seating. Being a card member, we are always seated immediately. Well worth the consideration.

I've been to the one in Galveston years ago and I remember it wasn't that great. Now that we have kids, we thought they might like the atmosphere. My kids absolutely loved it. The food was much better than I remember. Actually it was delicious. Only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because while there seemed to be plenty of... More

I get it, this restaurant is a gimmick. However, the service was terrible, the food was bland, and it cost over $50 (with tip) for 2 salads and a weak serving of queso. Not worth it in my book.

This is a really excelleny place to eat with your children. It is like walking into a jungle or a Disney Land ride. The tables are set amoungst aquariums and a waterfall and a jungle like atmosphere with trees and animated animals that look real. They have elephants and monkeys and apes etc.. Periodically the lights dim and evevrything comes... More

We eat here whenever we come to the Katy Mills Mall. The service was excellent and so was the food. The portions are fairly large so we often share.

To extend our Spring Break a bit longer, my family decided to visit a fun place - the Rainforest Cafe at nearby Katy Mills Outlet Mall. I hadn't been here in years and had recently been told "their food isn't very good," so I was very surprised by both the great food and good service. Two of us had the... More

Visited Rainforest at Katy Mills Mall for my daughters birthday. While the setting is fun and intriguing, the food was uninspiring.

We went here for our family meal for my son's 7th birthday primarily for the atmosphere. Food left a lot to be desired and was not really touched much by anyone, and very pricey for what you get. However, the volcano dessert was great - actually tasted good and lots of fun. I would not go back for the food,... More

I went to Rainforest Cafe during an evening shopping trip during a business trip. I had been to this restaurant brand before, so knew generally what to expect. I was greeted and seated by a friendly server, who told me that "this was one of the best seats in the house". I was close to the 'animals' and this was... More
