“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Food was very good! Staff were very nice and friendly! I enjoyed the ambiance and the uniqueness of the restaurant. There were many very good selections! It's right in front of the ice rink so bring a sweater!

“Come to the Jungle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

A fun jungle decor the kids and the young at heart. Animated animals, lots of greenery and a "night sky" complete with stars, a shooting star and a storm. Staff were attentive. A good choice of food.

“Not the usual experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We are quite used to the RC's, we are members of the original club and now the Landry's group. The service was excellent, as usual, but the food left much to be desired. One plate, too salty, mine lacked flavor and one the portion size was meant for a kid's meal. We go for the experience/atmosphere, but for the prices, you gotta deliver on the food too. Probably won't be back to this one, maybe the one in Katy or in Galveston instead.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Thank you Rainforest Cafe for making my daughters 13th Bday a huge success! We had a great waitress and the hostess was very quick to make room for us on short notice! All eleven of us enjoyed our food. We will be back!

“Fun experience for families!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

If you have a family, it's certainly good value for money and it's entertaining for the kids when the animals come to life. I wouldn't normally come to a place like this as it really is aimed at families but Mrs G and I remembered the previous good experience we had at a Rainforest Cafe a few years ago when we went to Florida with our children and decided we wanted to relive the magic again. The service and the food were very good and overall it was a fun experience!
