We celebrated my grandson's 9th birthday at Galveston's Rainforest Cafe. Eating in the tropical setting with animatronic elephants and gorillas and real aquariums of fish makes for an interesting, if not a bit noisy, dinner. The food is the typical Landry's fare, okay, but a bit pricey. There is a children's menu, but didn't see a seniors' menu. I had... More

The reason why I chose this restaurant was only because it is Child friendly. The service was Awesome. You actually have managers and waitress go around and check how everyone is doing. My daughter loved this place. Since i'm not a member there was going to be a 45 minute wait which i didn't want. However, they do offer seats... More

We went to the Rainforest Cafe today. Ordered Fish tacos and shrimp tacos. Food was great. Black beans were excellent. Sasha was our server and she was dynamic. Made sure our drinks were flowing and that we were taken care of. Great atmosphere for families. Thunder storm simulation every 30 minutes was fun. Loved this place. Go!!!!

The place was busy this Saturday afternoon. The waiting time was 10 minutes. You give your name and you get a text message. Of course Kids have wide open eyes. Food was good and price were fair. And every 15 minutes the elephants and monkeys are moving. We will come back.

It was a pleasant experience again. This is the grandbabies favorite place to eat! They do not get bored waiting for the food to arrive.

I'd never been to a Rainforest Café before. It's a neat place, but the food is nothing to write home about.

They were very overwhelmed by a simple request. I ordered five gift cards for work colleagues. It too five minutes to find a person who could sell them, then my card confused them. It took about thirty minutes to purchase. I give them out and one person is upset that their card was rejected and told zero dollars on it.... More
