“Rainforest Cafe”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Food was great but a bit pricey. The atmosphere was awsome, our grandchildren loved it. We went there twice.

“Kids love the atmosphere, marginal food, poor service”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We ate here around the 15th of May, so just before summer season kicked off. We were seated by the host (who turned out to be the manager on duty) and then sat there, and sat there, for almost 20 minutes. At which time I stopped one of the waitstaff and asked who was covering our section. No one. Sorry. We finally were waited on, the food was marginal (the local IHOP is twice as good for 1/4 the money). I have dined in Rainforests nationwide, this one really isn't worth going into.

“Awesome Family Experience!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were in the area for a wedding and decided to visit the beach area and was a little disappointed with the beaches but we saw Rain Forest Cafe and went for lunch and had an awesome time! Prices are reasonable as well the atmosphere was like being at a Disney type themed restaurant. We even did the raft/boat ride and it was really cool. The kids and adults loved it! Don't forget to order a Volcano!!

“A very poor Rainforest experience”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We visited this Rainforest Cafe the night before our cruise & was very much looking forward to it having regularly visited the Rainforest at Downtown Disney, Orlando.
To say we were disappointed was an understatement, the restaurant looked worn down and need of a good clean and the service was terrible.
The only drinks you could get we're soft, bottled beer or draught without buying there branded glass, I've never know it so difficult to give a bar money for a simple Mojito or a gin & tonic without having to buy a branded glass that the night before a cruise you don't want.
If you have ever been to a Rainforest Cafe before and had a great experience then don't go here.
