As soon as we sat down, we asked for water and my glass came and looked like it was taken from another table and filled with water and given to me. It was super disgusting that made me lose my appetite but still ordered to keep my family company. Server came and give me a new glass that looked cleaner... More

I personally really enjoyed this restaurant for lunch! So many things to look at because of the huge aquarium in the center of it. Food, service, drinks everything was fantastic for us.

We visited the restaurant at Kemah boardwalk for lunch; first time there; wife had stuffed shrimp which she said was outstanding; I ordered what was labeled a lump crabmeat salad and was really disappointed; for $20 basically got an avocado and lettuce salad with a bit of shredded crab meat -- reason for the three star rating; otherwise service was...

You will get all you need from your visit by having lunch on the second floor restaurant. Good food, a bit pricey, but where else can you get these great views of the aquariums?

The food is not bad at all. My son and had the fish taco and it was delicious. My daughter had the kids grilled chicken and loved it. However the main attraction is the huge aquarium with some huge fish, large nurse sharks and huge sting rays.

The service was lacking; slow, no enthusiasm, poor manners. I was appalled to see they have captive great cats there, with no access to the outdoors or anything resembling natural habitat. Please avoid this place until they make appropriate changes.

We came to Houston for the weekend for a show and decided to take the kids to the aquarium. We've been several times and the food has always been fresh and delicious and of course the atmosphere is outstanding. This time we even took the shark train ride outside, the kids loved it, as did we. This is probably the... More

We had a fun time here. The service was friendly and we had a great view right next to the aquarium. I had the coconut shrimp and thought it was pretty good. The prices are a little high, but for a fun day out, I recommend it.
