The absolute worst service and food I've ever had. They were still serving brunch at 5 pm and the food was absolutely disgusting. Cold eggs, nasty seafood and I swear the meat came from a cow's butt. Not to mention it was so hot and smelly from everyone waiting. Never again will we go here.

This restaurant is going down hill. We've been here multiple times and never had an issue with food or service. Unfortunately that was not the case this last time around. We had some family come from out of town and wanted to treat them to something nice. We were seated immediately but our waitress took forever with everything else. The... More

I have been to this place three times( twice business once personal) and had the same experience. Food taste like it came from a cafeteria food line and the service is not professional. The price is high end but that is all that is high end. The fish tank is cool but everything else is terrible. If you want a... More

Our children aged 8 and 5 were blown away by eating here as the aquarium is centrally located from the moment you enter to when you eat your meal. The kids meals are huge and fantastic value at $7 for a drink, meal and a side so you don't mind spending a bit more on adults meals. While we did... More

I expected it to be bigger but it is actually very very small. It is good to go once, but I most likely won't be going again. Not much to see.

This is a great choice for several reasons. It is on the water, it has quality menu choices, it has an aquarium inside and the service was great. I had pan seared redfish with melissa topping and it was superb. It is a special dining experience!

I can't comment on the food because we didn't actually eat, after 5 minutes of waiting and not getting help from any staff, we decided to leave. I rated this poor instead of terrible because the cylinder aquarium in the center of the restaurant is really cool to see, and one particular fish followed us from the bottom to the... More

The place is beautiful. Several aquariums, one of which is 50,000 gallons. Watching the fish was so enjoyable and relaxing. It's a little pricey, but how many other places can you eat dinner while feeling like you're submerged in an aquarium? The food was ok - similar to a Chili's or TGI Fridays, but more seafood. The portion sizes were... More

We stopped here after our cruise on our drive home. Our waiter, Sean, was competent and very nice. Our 2 apps were both g0od - the bacon wrapped shrimp as well as the Bruschetta which came with the toast and a tower of the toppings. The gumbo was excellent as well as the captains platter. Of course we wanted to... More
