Great place for a family to eat with a lot of attractions and great food. My kids love this place every time we go to one out of town.

The atmosphere at the Rainforest Cafe is always the best. If you have small children who scare easily or want a restaurant well lit, this isn't for you. The food is always good and there is a large selection. A wonderful experience.

The ambiance is fun but the restaurant is very noisy and not relaxing, the service leaves much to be desired, and the quality of food falls far short of what I expect for the price. I'm generally a patient person, but I had to ask...More

This restaurant has good food, friendly staff and they keep some large tables available on patio just in case a party like mine shows up. I was very pleased with everything.

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
