4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

We ate here as a large group; sports team and parents. The service and speed of food arrival was excellent. My food was really good and everyone around me seemed to enjoy theirs also. The prices are a little high, but in line with other full service chain restaurants.

Such a great little get away without going far. We had a great time eating here and there is so much to take in while you sit there. The ambiance is awesome, the food is good, and the service was great. This is definitely a great place to go to for a birthday party with all the service you would... More

Took my two granddaughters 9 and 14 to dinner here. Food was good-no complaints from anyone; our server Bree was outstanding; noise level is off the chart with several birthday parties going on for 3 year olds and up. We were walk-ups so put our name on "the list". We waited about 25 min and they were to call our... More

The food was good, service good, atmosphere good. No complaints. I guess it wants me to say more than 100 characters. I've been in several Rainforest cafes. The food was fine, the atmosphere was a little less intriguing than the other ones I have been in. The server was above average.

The atmosphere here is fun, but the food is bad and the service is poor. We ate here once and, while the aquariums were a nice touch, some of the attractions are a little too noisy making it difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was not good. The chicken fried steak was over cooked, dry and bland. My... More

My little boy was in awe. He could walk around, watch the animals , listen to the thunderstorm all while eating lunch. The staff are great and they love the kids. Lunch was great as well. Hot, fresh and portions are plenty. I recommend the spinach artichoke dip, or coconut shrimp or chicken tenders...well, it's all good. Just go, take... More

This place is awesome. The kids love it. So much to see and the environment is amazing. The food is great and the portions are huge.. Make sure and try the volcano for dessert :) And the mall is right there. Great place to spend some time shopping and eating.

I think this place is great for the kids. The atmosphere is amazing and will keep the little ones entertained. The food is just average and nothing to write home about but a little pricey for some things. We got the volcano dessert which is just a brownie with ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce topped with a sparkler.... More

We knew that something was up when we spotted a human in a frog outfit in this enormous mall. The Rainforest Cafe is a chain that caters to parents who have children who need to be amused (everyone with kids). And it certainly delivers on that. The place is as densely packed with convincingly fake trees, snakes, rain and animatronic... More

As many others have reported, this is a fun place for kids and the food is appropriate to a theme park atmosphere good burgers, good fries and chicken was dry. All and all about what you should expect from a theme restaurant.
