Rainforest cafe

Really nice environment for the kids. Food is average and can get very pricey. Service is very laid-back and good attitude on the staff. Overall is just very averaged. Not our top pick but still go just to take the kids.

We took out 3 year old to this cafe for lunch in Nov. 2015 and she was terrified (at first), lol. The sudden animal noises, the moving animals, the flickering lights (lightening) the rain forest storm was too much for her to handle at once. Eventually as she settled down and realised that they weren't coming to get her she... More

Was the day after Christmas and we tried going the Rainforest Cafe in Houston mall, but traffic was much too crowded so decided to drive the 25-30 minutes to Katy instead. Called to make reservation as we were driving. This was first time at this Rainforest in Katy, which is also in a mall. We were seated right away and... More

Sometimes, it’s only fair that the kiddos get to select the place we choose to dine as a family. They have their favorites, but if we happen to be strolling along inside the Katy Mills Mall, there is a very good chance they will want to dine at Rainforest Café, a tropical themed eatery made for children. Rainforest café is... More

This is the second time we have visited this location. Our daughters love the atmosphere. Staff provides great service. The menu has the typical selection of appetizers, soups & salads, sandwiches and main courses. Drink a large beer and you get to take home a collector glass. I'm sure it's worked into the price of the beer. Because of the... More

Brought our 3 grandchildren here as a special treat after they had burned themselves out at Jump Street. They love the atmosphere here with the rainforest theme brilliantly done, especially when the monkeys and gorillas do their chanting about every 15 minutes. The staff were on the ball from our arrival. and looked after our party throughout our stay. We... More

Fun place to ear dinner with kids. Restaurant is beautiful inside and the food and service is great. It is a lush tropical themed location with jungle animals that come to life. The kids think it is great fun. It is located in the mall but it is right by the entrance so you don't have to walk a long... More

My grandkids (ages 2 and 3) loved eating here. They would watch/listen to the animals and in between watch the fish in the different aquariums around the restaurant. We went this last weekend and they have moved the fish to the Rainforest in Galveston. They didn't enjoy it nearly as much with the fish gone. It seems like a little... More
