I think it is definitely more of a family restaurant. The food was great though our steaks were perfect. Could not say that for our server we were checked on by two managers and had to ask another server for a to go box. All and all a nice place to eat but a little over priced.

Had dessert only. It was my birthday so went for dessert because we had visited the one at Disney a couple of years ago for my grandson's birthday. I remember the delicious mountain of chocolate volcano we had. Well it was a memory only. I remember the dessert being served hot with warm chocolate cake and warm hot chocolate syrup... More

This place is an amusement park as much as a restaurant. Very large dining room and the cuisine is not the primary focus. That said, the ambience is one of a kind; comes complete with a thunderstorm every 30 mins. Don't miss the indoor river ride.

We visited this location as a party of 7 on a Saturday evening. So it was understandably crowded however there is not nearly enough parking. And when you are a member of the Perferred club you are suposed to get priority seating and we waited for the 45 minutes we were told it would be and there were people seated... More

This Rainforest Café has a boat ride and it was very good - lots of animatronics. Our granddaughter loved it. (We all did) After the ride we went to the café and had lunch. The price of lunch is why I marked this place down. The food was good enough and the service was OK - however, the same group... More

This is definitely a place you should visit at least once, just not for the food. The store is filled with adorable items, the boat ride is very simple but fun for kids. The service was just okay, and the food should have been much better. My medium well steak was actually medium rare, the mashed potatoes were bland, and... More

The wait can be long but my 13 year old daughter and her friends love it. There is a water ride through the "jungle" that is an extra charge and the kids enjoy it. My 13 year old said "I really like it, it's fun". The bar has decent drinks such as strawberry mojitos. The tables are all in the... More

We went to the restaurant and they have a 1 1/2 waiting, so we sign up for it. And pass 1 1/2 -2 hours. We keep checking they said an a little bit. But nothing. They never call us. We ended up eating in IHOP restaurant next door. My kids were so disappointed. And guess what? We are never going... More

Food was really great and the service was good, there is a rain storm every thirty min.ans that was very cool... Robotic animals, and lots of fish tanks look awesome. Even have a raft ride that was surprisingly AWESOME!
