Service was alright. Food was ok. Not as good as I was hoping for though. It was much better the last time we went.

It was our anniversary and my wife asked for one thing to go to Rainforest Cafe so we went. The atmosphere was so so. Every 20 minutes the lights would flicker and their would be storm sounds and they did have some lovely aquariums with lovely fish but I think they need to update. The food was good but at... More

Was a great visit. A bit smaller than some of the other Rainforest Cafe's, but the staff were very pleasant and the food was good. Great photo ops and gift shop. There was also some sort of a ride that we did not go on,but looked like fun. Adequate parking in the rear of the restaurant.

This looks like a good place to eat (we looked at the menu but did not eat there), but it you have time, on top of the hour, there is a cool attraction that basically replicates an erupting volcano. Since the restaurant is housed inside of a volcano replica, they have a great sound system outside that plays music and... More

The food is delicious and they give you huge portions. My husband and I had burgers and I could not finish my guacamole burger due to it being so large. The atmosphere is very loud with the sounds of the rainforest. However, it is great place to visit and eat. Children will love it!!

The quote from a 4 year old. This was a wonderful meal. We started with the appetizer sampler and devoured it. The kids meals were large portions and good quality. We had shrimp platters that were outstanding and one order of coconut shrimp only. We had the Volcano desert and again the kids loved it! During the meal we took... More

My husband and I took our kids out for dinner.. Very nice place, but some of the employees are very rude and unfriendly. Food was all NASTY. I told my server I didn't like my food she got her manager I only took 2 bites out of the taco,the rest was untouched but since I had asked for all the... More

Obviously the rainforest cafe is a chain and pretty much the same design wise inside. But the outside of the restaurant is a giant volcano. The food was very good, wasn't busy we went around 2pm. The staff was friendly, and very attentive. It's also a POKESTOP AND A GYM!!! Which is also a plus. We went during off season... More

This was our second trip here and was just as perfect as the first trip. Yep they are alittle pricey but you feel it was well spent here. The food was great and the water ride they have is so much fun. We just love it here.

Unless you actually do the ride that they have in the back it's really not worth the money. I mean you're paying a lot for kids chicken nugget's because of "The experience" and the staff was all right.
