Food was cold, such as the mozzarella sticks and the burgers. One entree was completely forgotten about and they didn’t offer to take the entree off the check. Food was not the best tasting, but maybe not the worse. Would not go to this location...More

If your kids like animals this is the place to go. You are surrounded by sounds of the jungle and the animals move while you eat. It's expensive for the type of food, but you can't beat the entertainment.

I would call and make a reservation as soon as they accept them. You can usually get accommodations in the bar area, but it's not the experience that you'll have inside the restaurant. Enjoy some ribs for me! Have fun!
