This is my favorite franchised restaurants. Its unfortunate that its not closer to NY. I love the theme and the food. Service is good.

But the "souvenirs" are poorly made. We bought a plastic kids waterbottle, and the straw broke after 2 uses (one of which was in the restaurant!). After multiple times on hold (not a toll-free call), I eventually got to speak to the appropriate person, even though I speficically asked for a retail manager just as the respresentative in Texas (toll free, customer service hotline) told me to do. We can "return" the items for replacements (a 55-mile one-way trip!). I was told I can come in whenever, even if we don't return to AC for a few months. I'm sure that will raise eyebrows about why I am returning a product months later, but I will try if we travel to Atlantic City again. I was told the cups are "giveaways" anyway. My daughter drank tap water, she does not drink sugary drinks, so I certainly didn't buy the drink and get the cup for "free." One of the souvenir glasses we bought taken right from the box is rough on the bottom, almost cracked, and on the verge of breaking. I will attempt to exchange these items next time I travel to AC. I half-expect to be laughed at, but have my receipt and the name of the manager I spoke with. I will only eat there in the future, if I am given the exchange as promised. Even if I am, I will not purchase any souvenir items again because of the poor quality and the required 100-mile roundtrip drive (gas prices anyone!!!!) to exchange them.
There are also no real suitable vegetarian options on the menu, which surprised me considering the name "Rainforest Cafe" conjures up images of ecosustainability for me.

PROS: Unique experience
CONS: Poorly made souvenirs

The food is good, nothing grand though. The prices are OUTRAGEOUS!! Even Disney and Great Adventure are cheaper! It is the atmosphere you go and pay for appararently. There is the signature "rain storm" that happens every 20 mins are so. There is also a gift shop located near the registers. The service is good. The only complaint I would have is if you sit up front YOU FREEZE if you sit near the HUGE globe you SWEAT! Climate control seems to be a problem with all the waterfalls. You have to valet you car at a casino as this is located on the Atlantic City boardwalk.

PROS: Cool jungle atmosphere
CONS: PRICES, PARKING

I stumbled upon this restaurant while walking down the boardwalk one day! "A Wild Place to Shop and Eat! " was right. You walk through an archway fish tank and are instantly transported to the canopy of the Rainforest. Elephants, gorillas and giant butterflies are just a few of the creatures that make this place so great! And the food, everything was so tasty! Reasonably priced! Definitely save room for the volcano, it's worth it! The service was excellent! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone and I'm not someone who is easily impressed. :)

Pros: Great atmosphere for kids of all ages, great service, great food. Easy to get to, right in Trump Plaza on the boardwalk.

Cons: Weekends get busy, so I would consider making reservations.
