The atmosphere in the restaurant was awesome. Our favorite part was huge fish tank in the restaurant and the stingray exhibit on the first floor. The exhibit is a must see at Kemah. Our family enjoyed feeding and touching the stingrays. The reason why I didn't give it five stars is the food. The food was okay. It wasn't the... More

Although a bit pricey because it is at the Kemah boardwalk, the food is always excellent. My parents always want to eat here when they are in town. The fried shrimp and the steak and lobster are our favorites. Although any of the fish dishes are amazing. The aquarium has a lot of different species of fish and my kids... More

This was a fun place to eat surrounded by aquariums that house all kinds of fish and a few sharks. The food was really good. I had the fish tacos and loved them.

This place's attraction is the tank with all those beautiful fish in there but the food is average, the service is average and the staff are from medium to dry so just to go and see the fish tanks it is worth but it is expensive to do often, gets a C++

Alright say what you want but I love a place like this. Yes it's a tourist trap but it's a fun tourist trap. The kids love it. Smiles on their faces from the time they walk in until they leave. The fish tanks are 3 stories high with beautiful fish in them. The fish are exotic. I really like the... More

Bad food. Bad server. Bad music. Nice fish. Nice view. I wasn't expecting gourmet, but freezer burned fish is disgusting.

Entry via the circular staircase with the cylindrical fish tank is unusual and entertaining, but nothing prepared us for the interior of this restaurant, the decor in the style of a sea cave with a huge curved fish tank as the centrepiece of the restaurant. The atmosphere is very lively and it is family orientated, but we were all captivated... More

We started off by going to feed the stingrays and we had to drag our son out of there because he was enjoying it so much. A neat experience. Then we decided to grab a drink and an appetizer and view the interior of the restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the fish and our waiter was extremely knowledgable... More

We went here because we wanted lunch while in Kamah and our grandson loves fish, so we thought that we could eat while he enjoyed watching the fish--which is why every other parent and grandparent was eating lunch there that day. At least the child was entertained -- but he didn't eat his food. We have been to other Landry... More

Our fried shrimp had fuzz on it and bottom was soft and black from beans that were under it broccoli was gritty like it had been dropped on floor
