“Awesome Time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We take our grandaughter here once a month as a special treat. It's too expensive to go more than that. She is 6, and loves the atmosphere. I always get a salad, because the rosemary bread that comes with it is amazing! My husband usually gets a burger, and is happy with that. Our grandaugher is satisfied with the kids pizza, and cleans her plate every time. The service is always excellent!

“Back to the Jungle!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

You won`t believe your eyes at the detail to decoration in this place! Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is awesome and children will not be antsy after 20 minutes. Way too much to enjoy to get bored. Gift shops, jungle boat tour, bands in the summer outside... did I mention great food? Go there! You won`t be sorry!

“Best Rainforest Cafe I've ever been to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have been to Rainforest Cafe's in San Francisco, Anaheim, San Diego, Seattle, San Antonio, Chicago and Las Vegas and this is (by far) the nicest one! Beautiful place and very kid friendly. Also, I was unawre that this was a Landry property. Thanks to waitress (who was very helpful) she asked me if I had any discount cards, I mentioned McComick and Schmidts (Landry) and thanks to her I saved $50 off my bill. Overall it was a great experience and the food was fantastic!

“Good kid fun, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This restaurant is a lot of fun for kids. They really liked the animals moving and the thunder. The food is average but the kids gave the resaurant high marks for fun. The Galveston location also has an indoor river ride which was pretty good. I thought it was going to be a rip-off but it turned out to be worth the money. I would say if you are in Galveston, this is one of the sights to see at least once.

“Alright if you like loud noise!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went here with my family for a Sunday lunch. Food very good. Service very good - and pricing really good if you enroll for a Landry's Card. Downside was the noise - very loud 'rainforest' effects scared the Beejeezus out of my 2-year old granddaughter. Apart from that, a really nice visit..
