We took our great grandson here-2 1/2 yrs. Atmosphere was great! Loved watching his face when the rainstorm came!! Food was good but very pricey! The ride was closed on Mon. when we were there.

Fun place for the kids...although the boat ride was out of service the night we went there. Service was good and the animated animals and rainforest decor was fun. The food was pretty decent...typical for this type of themed restaurant. Good photo ops out front by the volcano.

Very good food, lots to see while dinning. Love the shopping area. We would go back in a heart beat. Had our son and daughter in law with us and they enjoyed everything also.

I was disappointed in the Rainforest Cafe. It was not like I remembered it from a few years ago. We came in and were seated right away. Our youngest granddaughter was given a kids menu and a purple hat to wear. We waited almost 20 minites for our server to come. Once she did the order was taken and we... More

Very clean place, service was very friendly. Food is a bit expensive but the quality was good. Make sure to take your kids on the river raft ride!

We were in town for a gymnastics meet and this was a great place for the kids. The food didn't wow me, but it was good. Although, how many go to the Rainforest cafe just for the food? The volcano cake is a must have! I would definitely return. :)

We visited the rain forest café Galveston. Because it's a low time of year it was not busy but the food was delicious and the service was very quick and great. This is a super fun place. Would be great for a family with small children.

This is an awesome place to eat if you have children in your group!! Not so if you are hoping to talk or discuss anything of substance because of the noise! I did enjoy the Cobb salad. They have a varied menu with kids in mind.

We were planning on going somewhere else for dinner but when we walked out of our hotel it was so foggy we decided we really didn't feel like driving. We were staying at the Hilton Galveston Island Resort & the Rainforest Cafe is virtually next door. The place is pretty loud. Many, many families with lots & lots of kids... More
