Rainforest Cafe - Children

This place is a wonderful place to take children of all ages! The restaurant features all types of Rainforest animals from tree frogs to gorillas and elephants. There are three huge fishtanks with tropical fish of all types. The setting is like being under the canopy of the rainforest with the all of the sounds and sights that one could only imagine you are actually in the rainforest. The food is also phenomenal, I would highly recommend this place.
