It was a nice place, always some visual fun with the animals and fish. The meal was pretty standard, and mostly the drinks were decent. Priced for the boardwalk. Service was ok.

Had a great lunch here (2 adults 3 kids) while visiting Atlantic City this summer. Wonderful themed restaurant - as the name suggests, you are sitting in a rainforest, with realistic looking animals around you. Animals come to life every 15 minutes and a thunderstorm...More
