We visit the Rainforest cafe every trip to Galveston. Our first time we had food, it was awful. Our kids did not eat kids meal. Now we have a drink and brownie desert with sprinklers, ride the ride and shop. Go once for the experience.

LOUD, busy, a little worn-out looking (especially the robotic animals). Food was good though expensive. Make a reservation a day or two in advance. Fun to do once. We will not return.

Good steak but our grilled shrimp was not very tasty. Don’t even waste your money on the ride inside. We rode cause we had an hr wait but not impressed. Over-rated

Beautiful place but way overpriced! Burger was good but not worth the price! Beverages are too expensive! Only thing great is gift shop!
