“My daughter was amazed”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Great food. Great atmosphere. Kind of pricey but worth it for a family with kids. Waitress was very tentative but a little anxious to clear the table so took my husband's plate before he was completely done. She apologized and offered to bring him out something free like fries but he said he was full anyway.

“Not worth the money ”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere is cool but it's definitely a one time place. Food was not that great and the service was terrible. The volcano for dessert was the best part it was delicious we split it between 4 people and still didn't finish!

“Poor service for over priced food”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

We were trying to compromise with the kids for sea food and something they'd like. Bad decision. Server kept reaching over me while I was trying to eat. Husband got rotten cheese. Server even tried to keep the change. Wont be back again!

“Cute atmosphere but costly”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

When we started planning our Galveston trip the kids asked if we could try the Rainforest Cafe. We had passed by it several times during our last trip. We called ahead and didn't have to wait long at all. The Storm was just going off as we were seated and everyone thought that was pretty neat. Our meal took so long though that we got to witness this event at least 5 more times. Then it wasn't so cool.
The food portions are big and the food was decent. It pretty much tasted like Wendy's . The fish tanks were awesome! They were clean and the fish were very active . The crossover tubes were interesting. We went on the water ride . It was pricey but pretty neat. The gift shop had souvenirs in various price ranges so everyone could leave with something without breaking the budget. If it is raining in Galveston this is a good place to go to kill time but if it is sunny I would have preferred to just eat at Wendy's and go enjoy the beach instead .

“Better bring a lot of money with you for this place!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

They have a huge gift shop and a river ride. Their food was really high priced but you got a lot food with it. My son loved the fish tanks they have in there and all the scenery.
