Did not eat there, as the wait quite long, but loved the surroundings. Decorated beautifully and full of surprise animals everywhere, some hidden, some making sounds, etc and even a walk thru aquarium. Myself and my nearly teen daughter absolutely loved the cheesy water ride,...More

First time my granddaughters had been to a Rainforest Cafe. They loved the atmosphere and looking in the gift shop. The food needs improvement. It was cold and not very good.

My youngest daughter enjoyed the ride & the animated shows during our time in Galveston. The older teens & adults however were not that impressed with the food or activities. The food was average & took a while to arrive. Service was fair, nothing exceptional.

Nothing surprising here. If you've never been to a Rainforest Cafe, it's worth the visit; otherwise, if it's convenient, go for it. We split an appetizer and had dessert. The mango sorbet was quite good actually.

What a fun place! Can spend a couple of hours here. Between the meal, the gift shop and the ride. It's a little expensive but hey it's vacation!

The food is good but overpriced. The waiter and the shift manager were friendly and came around several times to make sure we had enough to drink and to apologize for the very long food preparation time, 40 minutes! She gave a free ride on...More

The best part about this restaurant is the awe-factor for kids (probably 10 and younger). Food was a bit pricey, but was actually tasty. Service was good. The 'ride' is also fun for the kids.

Of all of the restaurants we went to while in Galveston, Rainforest Cafe was my absolute favorite. The atmosphere is fun, the food is delicious, and the service was great! My whole family loved it!

We went here with our kids and another family a total of 9 of us. The Rainforest cafe looks amazing, spectacular even. Extremely busy all the time. But not all prices are shown on the menu for food or drinks. Upon ordering our food 5...More

There aren't any I don't believe. I took my 2 year old on there. Your child will just sit in your lap. No seat belts on the ride, but it does bump around.

The only open seating is outside while you wait for your reservation. If this is a working animal for the handicapped, I think they would allow but I have never seen the run of the mill pet let in.
