Great Restaurant

Awesome customer service, good drinks, cool view, but we do wish that there was a better dessert menu.

I have been to this restaurant three times and the last time was just as good as the first! The food is beyond fabulous and so is the service! The large aquarium is just an added bonus to this great place! If your in the Kemah area this restaurant is a MUST!

This is a chain seafood restaurant serving chain restaurant seafood. It is overpriced but you are paying for the experience of eating next to huge aquariums with live fish. For kids it is magical and well worth the price. It is fun to watch the little ones be mesmerized by all the fish. As for the adults it kind of... More

We had our boat moored at the Marina that is right across the parking lot from the Boardwalk so we would have dinner, drinks etc in the area a lot. We used to like going over to the Aquarium in Kemah to just go up and sit at the very nice bar. The bartenders are always friendly, the service always... More

The food is decent, what you expect from a chain restaurant. Over priced, but we wanted the dining experience with the huge Aquarium in the center of the restaurant. Also, my cocktail was very watered down.

We loved this restaurant. The fish, the atmosphere, the decorations all place you under the water. The food was amazing. We had the best server ever. After the meal the kids loved feeding the stingrays. This was the highlight of our vacation.

Food was ok. Expected better. Strawberry Mojito was good. Atmosphere a little dark but nice to see the fish swimming while eating. Food is pricey when we got more food and better at another restaurant on the boardwalk for less. Staff were slow this day.

We had 25 guests to attend and be a part of my mother's special day. The food, atmosphere, and service was great. We were allowed to bring in a cake for the celebration. The hostess was great and made us feel very welcome. Everyone said they would definitely return to the aquarium in the near future.

Kids love to eat here with all the aquariums. We have always been seated next to the large aquarium which my boys love. Food is ok. You eat here for the atmosphere.
