We had a great time here. Went on a Saturday and waited 40 minutes to be seated. During this time you can ride the Adventure Tube ride (inside the restaurant area), check out the aquariums, or browse the gift shop. There are several photo opportunities...More

Only gave this 3 stars because themed dining isn't my idea of fun. The kids loved it though. The food is ok to me but the family loved it. They offer a "ride" at this location and it was a little too juvenile for my...More

The food here is good, but somewhat overpriced. I didn't like that several of their menu items they don't even bother to list the price and you have to ask the waiter for each unlisted price only to find out the items are very expensive....More

My family and out of town guests loved the Rainforest Cafe experience! The food is a little pricey, but it's not your every day restaurant. The Landry's Select Club is handy, too! We always get priority seating and credits towards meals.

The food is always good at a Rainforest Cafe however the ride at this particular location was awesome! The Korean stir fry was super spicy. The grilled chicken was outstanding! I recently had a gastric sleeve and the staff were so accommodating!

There aren't any I don't believe. I took my 2 year old on there. Your child will just sit in your lap. No seat belts on the ride, but it does bump around.
