“Generic. Over-priced.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If if was up to me, I would never have people visit Rainforest Cafe when they are visiting a new city. The food is not reflective of the area of the country - not is it tasty - , service is slow and, man, it is overpriced.

“Fun but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We had a great waitress (wish I could remember her name) She was great with the kids. The food was great but very expensive. This was the first visit for our kids (9 & 11). They really enjoyed the atmosphere. The thunderstorms were the best! We'd go again but its definitely for special occasions only.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Went there with my kids. Even they didn't like the food. Setting is nice. It is a good place to enterain kids when you are at the mall. Crowded. Not somewhere I would go unless I had small children and was at the mall anyway.

“Unique and fun, but pricey.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

You dine with the sound of water in a 'tropical' setting where animatronic gorillas and other jungle animals come to life along the walls every few minutes. For children of the right age (3-10?), this is a fun experience. But if you with a family, prepare to drop close to $100. The food is good.

“To avoid long waits set in the bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were going to have to wait 50 min. before we could be seated, but we noticed several empty table in the bar area. We asked to if we could sit there and we were seated right away. Always great to visit Rainforest Cafe!
