Our grandkids went ape over this place the hanging monkeys from the trees brought on lots of giggles. The place was really cute food was like any fast food restaurant. The balloon man was the friendliest. The only downsize was none of the employees smiled or acted happy it did put a bit of a gloom on the place. The... More

I wasn't expecting the food to be very good since Rainforest Café is typically known as more of a kid friendly experience over anything else, but the meal I ordered was very good! The server was very attentive and fast.

Teen daughter wanted to eat at the Rainforest Cafe, to be honest I wasn't all that excited. However, we have a great time and even better meal. It isn't cheap but worth it!

We came here during spring break for our twin's birthday. Being that it was spring break, the line was an hour long. Since we were Landry's card members, we were told the wait would be about 45 minutes. However, to our surprise, our name was called in 20 minutes. Definitely, a great surprise. The food was delicious. We all enjoyed... More

We stopped here for a late lunch during Spring Break. As usual, we had a very good meal and a good time. My wife tried the Rasta Pasta--Shrimp, Chicken, and Sausage over Fettuccine Noodle in a spicy sauce. I had the Cobb Salad--Great presentation and nice combination of ingredients. The only negative was just a tad too much dressing on... More

Such a neat and fun place for adult AND children. The food was good and not too bad on pricing. Our bill was a little high due to buying the SUPER COOL AND WELL WORTH it souvenir kids cups! They are MUCH bigger than the image shows and they have a compartment on the bottom WITH a toy and would... More

This is my 3rd different Rainforest Cafe I have been to, and the BEST one yet. It was super busy, but the staff didn't miss a beat. The ride is the icing in the cake.

We have eaten here once and will not be back. The prices are high and you clearly are just paying for the atmosphere. Go to a local seafood restaurant is you want some great seafood. This is not the place.

Our group waited on a Tuesday night for an hour and forty five minutes. We are out of town so we saw this as essential to our visit to Galveston. Food was overpriced and not of good quality. Basically you're paying for the experience. Be willing to pay about $20 a meal and wait for a long period of time... More
