    Although good was hot the steak was dry hard to cut and over cooked for a medium well requested order. Theme didn’t play much for this rainforest atmosphere. Service was good. Hostess was outstanding. Pricing was too high. A family of 4 would pay over $100. Sad.

    This is the first time ever that we were seated within 3 minutes of our arrival so it was amazing. Food is overpriced but it is expected. We were going for the experience more than the food.

    This was such a fantastic experience! From the walk up to the restaurant to inside, such an awesome view! Our server made some delicious recommendations with drinks and food! She was attentive and assured everything tasted great! She even got the crew together to sing happy birthday to my daughter who turned 12! It was the 1st time my kids have been to a RFC. This was our 1st time in Galveston and we cannot wait to go back! My kids have been non-stop talking about how great it was to have dinner at RFC! We also enjoyed the ride, so cool!

    We enjoyed our meal. There was a slight mishap with the burgers being cooked wrong for three in the party. They didn't let the server know. We had the sparkling volcano which fed 5 and was devoured.

    Made a reservation a month in advance just to be seated in the very corner away from everything. Check in girl was super rude and waiter wasn’t that warm either. I was really looking forward to taking my girlfriend here but we left super disappointed and won’t ever come back.
