    That place is the worst. Nice staff, but the food is awful and the attempt to be a fun atmosphere is terrible. Its a great concept for a theme restaurant, but they put a 1/2 effort into it and that shows with everything. I honestly don't know why anyone would return.

    Our server disappeared for about 30 minutes. We had to get up and ask someone for ketchup. The service was abysmal. The bathrooms were not clean either. The food was not worth the price.

    Great environment, great attentive service, and good food. You pay for the experience more than the food quality but it’s good - just not exceptional. We really enjoyed our experience at Rainforest Cafe!

    Short staffed and those available were not well trained. They were indeed courteous, but found difficulty in being helpful. Manager had to be engaged; he was competent full of good intentions, but seemed overwhelmed. Food was good but not worth the price charged for it. Same to be said about the cocktails. The jungle ambiance was entertaining and the best reason for going there.

    We booked this reservation months ago, arrived on time, and were told it would be a 45 minute to an hour wait regardless. We were also told it “didnt really matter” if we came back or not. We did not have time to wait, so we left. Staff was rude

    Seated promptly and waite-staff was fine. But we got there around 5 and didn’t have any food before 6… only other criticism was all of the fish-tank lighting turned off at 6:45 (since they close early on Sundays) – but plenty of folks still eating and even just getting served.

    I ordered the steak, shrimp, and ribs platter. The steak was a little over done and dry and I didn't care too much for the shrimp. The ribs were pretty tasty. I had a hugh order of fries . They were ok but not great. For $35.00 I have to say I was a little disappointed.

    We had a great time and enjoyed our meal. The girls always have fun going there as the animals, fish, and "thunderstorms" are always fun. This definitely one of our favorite restaurants to go to and can't wait to return another time.

    The waitress was rude and wanted to argue with regarding why I sent my food back. She did not explain things well. My DIL bun was hard as a rock. The manager came over and took both meals off our bill. It still was extremely expensive. 2 meals, 2 appetizers, and 4 drinks was over $100. Not worth it at all.

    Service was very slow. Took a while to get our drinks after we ordered them. Had to ask a second time for dipping sauces. And I ordered a drink without ice in a to go cup ad waitress brought me a drink with ice in a regular cup. Chicken tenders were a little over done.

    We will not be back to this location as the food and service has severely gone down hill. We where charged for three souvenir glasses that we did not request. Both burger meals were dried out and taste like plastic. The children’s pasta meal looked and tasted like it had been re heated several times. For the total amount we had to pay we will not be back to this restaurant.

    Animals, and animal soundscapes were neat. We were all still able to communicate across the table just fine even with the rainforest storm. A couple waitresses sang a Happy Birthday song and brought the birthday boy his volcano dessert which was delish. Food prices are higher than I expected and most food was good. Note for parents of picky eaters, the kids Mac and cheese is with penne pasta and it’s not cheesy, more dry of a Mac and cheese, and our 14 month old with a few teeth, 3 yo and 5 year old (birthday boy) didn’t like it and wouldn’t eat it. For the rest of the table: Chicken fried chicken, ribs, Rasta pasta and coconut shrimp were delish. Fajitas and blue mountain chicken sandwich were good. And creole Mac and cheese came in with an ok. All 3 kids got the animal top cups, they had limited selection of just 2 different animals and we needed 3 choices so that caused a little ruckus of “no, that’s mine!” Loved the fish aquariums. I was a little disappointed in the rainforest apparel for the baby and kids section, not much, but then again maybe shipments didn’t make it into the store with this crazy world we’re experiencing. We did buy (2) ten packs of the pose-able animals and they’ve been having a blast with them. This is definitely a place the little ones want to explore everything and stare at the fish swimming so I would recommend it to people and advise them to plan ahead and view the menu.

    Waited 10 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Restaurant was very busy. We went before going to the Grand Ole Opry. It's not ideal for that because it is located at the far end of the mall from the Opry. Both of my companions wear hearing aids. The noise level was VERY loud in the restaurant. Great for kids, not so great for old people! Server was very attentive and food came quickly. It was hot and very tasty. Pricing was reasonable for a theme restaurant like this. I would not go back as a pre-show meal for the Opry, but no hesitation to recommend it to people with small children.

    We waited 50 minutes on our drinks. The entire time we had our food we didn't even have drinks, no refills at all. I had to go get the host twice not to mention my food was spicy. It took around a hour to get food and a hour to get the check. It wasn't a good experience at all.
