Love going to this restaurant, but pricey if you want to go often. I had the pot roast and it was AMAZING! Almost as good as mine =) The atmosphere is always fun, but wish the fish tanks had been occupied. Our service was very good, but diet coke was way off taste.

It was a great place to eat with our new Sailor. We enjoyed it and they give a military discount. Our service was a bit slow and my son said, "they do not know how to make a Philly Cheesesteak." but other than that it was very nice and we enjoyed our experience

While shopping at the mall we stopped for lunch. We ordered five adult meals and one kid menu. There weren't many people in the restaurant so we thought we'd get our food faster but we thought wrong. Service was slow. We only saw two servers and a girl bringing the food out. I ordered a Reuben sandwich. It cost extra... More

We tried Rainforest again for a birthday celebration in Feb. Over the many years this restaurant has been in Gurnee Mall, we have tried it a handful of times. There always is something not quite right. The food is unremarkable and sometimes not so great and the service is frustrating - really difficult to locate a server sometimes due to... More

The food was mediocre and over priced, ambience was nice if you have kids. I had always heard about them before I moved to the area and had to try it. However the amount of food for the money just didn't add up.

Coincidentally my son was talking about the Rainforest Cafe restaurants with his bunk mate earlier in the week and he said... More

Ever since we ate at the one in Disney World, my son has been wanting to go back. I didn't think that we had one this close, so when we found this one, we had to go. Once again, we had a great experience. We all 4 had a great meal and the kids had fun doing the scavenger hunt... More

The woodfield location was the same as it was when it opened, nothing new, fish tanks cloudy,sound from speakers garbled and food just ok at best. Waste of money in my book!
