Wow....Landry's owns everything. Rainforest Cafe is a fun dining venue that has average food. Make sure to check out the river ride...a little cheesy but when in Galveston you should do it.

I have been here when it was just me and my family and I have also came with a large group. Both experiences were quite nice and everyone had a good meal and a good time. The menu offers enough of a selection for everyone and the scenery is great!

We have been to other locations in the past. This one was even better due to the fact they have a water ride that takes you through the jungle. Really cute especially if you have small children.

We enjoyed a weekday dinner with family. The service was excellent and food much better than I expected for the type of restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their choices. The sparking volcano is an incredible dessert, served with great fanfare! This is a good stop for kids with moderately priced meals.

My Wife had never eaten at a Rainforest Café, so we needed to fix that. My chicken sandwich was a lot better than what she ordered (my opinion), our Server was attentive without being intrusive, and the place was VERY clean. Too noisy for our taste (recorded jungle noises & mechanical critters), BUT, if you have younger children with you,... More

Our kids are grown but for nostalgia we returned once again to Rainforest Cafe. The menu has changed so much that our favorites are no longer offered. It is still a treat for kids but since our kids are grown, it doesn't offer the same excitement as it once did. Usually service is great but on this visit it was... More

Food was average. Service was ok, nothing special. Adventure ride was fun, but WAY overpriced. I just go there for the kids. Best part is the thunderstorm.

When we entered the hostess said there was a HOUR and a HALF wait!! I asked if we could sit in the bar area and she said yes. So we were set down in a corner booth. The food was good and so were the drinks . It was expensive but expected. Be great for families.

Thank Tabjoy85
