Arrived around 1:30 to get a drink and snack. We ordered the appetizers and they were very good. We got the extra ribs and I was surprised at how good they were. A good deal and good service..

Our family of 4 had lunch here. We had a reservation and we were seated and then attended to quickly. We had a great spot near what is coincidentally our youngest’s favourite animal but I think any table would be fun to sit at. Food...More

My family always enjoys eating at Rainforest Cafe in all the cities we visit that has one. The entertainment of watching the animated animals is very enjoyable. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced as well. It's a great place to dine with kids.

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

Considering this is a novelty restaurant in the Mall of America, we did not consider it to be expensive. The three adults ate for about $38 and we were full!
