Our table for 10 was seated immediately at 11. Our server was pleasant and attentive, for the most part. The food was enjoyed by all. Atmosphere was good and our toddlers really enjoyed it when the walls came to life. One caution: the Beef Nachos apparently don't come with beef, you are charged extra for it. They are very large...

We enjoy eating at the rainforest cafe. The food is good and the staff is great. If you have children this is a really neat place to eat.

My wife and I have always enjoyed Rainforest from when our son was younger to even when it is just the two of us. The food has always been good for this type of a chain. The staff here is great and so is the management. Always enjoy our time here

Food not the best & a little pricey but the service & atmosphere was great! Our food came out pretty fast & our waiter kept checking on us. The restaurant still looks good & we love the rain storm every quarter of the hour. You can take drink glasses home as souvenirs. My toddler was a little afraid of the... More

For kids under ten... Interesting moving parts that would have amazed twenty years ago, but are pretty common today. When they first opened over twenty years ago it was pretty amazing. Got bought out by a chain concept and lowered the quality of the food... but the characters are just as fun for young kids, and they don't seem to... More

Probably the best option in the mall (other than the food court). Great for a quick meal and a short rest.

The food is pretty good. The wait staff is good. You are paying for the ambiance. The kids love it. Don't like they have the balloon animal guy going around pressuring you to buy something.

Rainforest Café is a cool place to visit, but "bring your umbrella"... LOL. They have periodic episodes of thunder, lightning and "rain" inside the restaurant. Just kidding about the umbrella. :-) They have multiple "jungle animals" scattered about, who come to life every so often. You'll see the elephants sway and their ears flap and hear them bugling, along with... More

I had never been one any Rainforest Cafe so I'm not sure how this one stacks up against others. It was an interesting experience. The service was good. The food was high priced but decent. I could see kids loving this place. Overall, it was good.

Really nice environment for the kids. Food is average and can get very pricey. Service is very laid-back and good attitude on the staff. Overall is just very averaged. Not our top pick but still go just to take the kids.
