“Volcano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The staff was very friendly and attentive. Did not care for the coconut shrimp-- had a chemical aftertaste?? LOVED The scallop w/ cheese mixture. The volcano is a definite must have but save room or have lots of people to eat it.

“ALWAYS ENJOYABLE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a fabulous lunch. They were very busy but we did not have a long wait at all. Two of my friends had never been to a Rainforest Restaurant and they really enjoyed the ambiance very much. The waiter told us that we would be in for a treat. I knew exactly what he was talking about. Boom, there it was!! Most enjoyable.....as always.

“Fun place for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visit Galveston multiple times a year. No matter how many times we go everyone always looks forward to eating at the Rain Forest. And most times we do the ride in addition to just eating. My sons favorite is the Lava Nachos and he always makes sure to send out pictures of him eating them to his cousins if they did not make that trip. Always supper friendly staff. In the summer when waits are longest they usually have something going on outside for entertainment. We have seen bands, hula girls, and balloon animals being made. I would not recommend if your small kids do not like lots of noise. As periodically the lights dim and he animals start moving and making animal noises and I have seen it scare a few little ones.
