“Fun Place For Families!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

My daughter and I took my 3 year old granddaughter to this Rainforest Cafe. She was a little frightened by the thunder and lightning but soon focused on the animated animals. It certainly kept her entertained throughout the meal. Our server was attentive and friendly, helpful and courteous. We shared chicken fajitas as the portion was plentiful and delicious.

“Nice atmosphere but overpriced.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Went here with family on a business trip. Kids loved it, but the food was overpriced for the quality and what you get. Service was very good. The place is very loud so do take that into consideration. I would go back with kids, but never alone.

“Fun atmosphere/average food”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Fun atmosphere, especially fun for the kids and young at heart. Service seems understaffed and always in a hurry. It is loud, so not a place to take someone for a long talk or romantic, quiet interlude. Food is just average.

“Declining Fast”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We are regular diners, Safari Club Members, who have been eating at this restaurant location for more than 5 years. Service and details seems to be declining. Although the gift shop is bright, and the dining room is dim, but clean, the tables are unnecessarily too close. Our adjacent diners kept backing their chairs into our personal space - within 6 inches - so that they could be comfortable. The Lava Nachos were a grand pile of chips, but scant with the meat, cheese, and toppings. The kids slushes were in a pricey souvenier cup containing a small drink for the price. The loyalty program has more than a few kinks. Our Safari Club membership has been discontinued, and replaced with a less rewarding Landry's program. No more free appetizers. For some reason, this latest meal recorded only 32 points for our 42 dollars spent - and the sales tax was not $10. The next most recent visit was not credited at all, even though we had presented the loyalty card. When we called for an explanation, the customer service person recognized that the points credited did not match our receipt, both of which were available to him. But instead of giving us instant credit, he advised us to submit the receipt for the correction. One or two disappointments per visit is about my limit, and this visit has been nothing but disappointments.

“Disgusting food. Reminds me of a circus.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Appetizer included chips that were stale. Meal was gross. Had the tribal salmon and fish tacos, both tasted like reheated tv dinners. Husband had piña colada that tasted like banana fruit smoothie. Balloon animal guy comes by with huge "I work off of tips" button while you are eating. Give me a break. My kids thought it was okay. Not enough to warrant eating horrible overpriced food.
