Thoroughly enjoyed eating dinner at the well known landmark. Out of the way location, but easy free parking, incredible food and service. Very friendly and comfortable. I ate at a booth in the back, could watch the large TV over the bar, enjoyed some exceptional flavored butters on the bread, a spinach salad which is the best I have ever... More

The restaurant itself was converted from a house I believe, so it's curb appeal will definitely through you off. Also, the ambiance inside is quite dark. The food though, is incredible. Specifically the Red Pepper Chicken Soup in a bread bowl (which isn't on the menu, but they will make it for you). All of their bread is homemade, and... More

Never had a bad experience at this restaurant in Fairmont, WV. The food is by far I have to rate excellent. The service is very good and the atmosphere is great. My opinion you wont go wrong if you pick this place. It is a little pricey but worth it.

What a dump. Food is only average and the place is dark, dirty, and dingy. I can not see how anyone could love below average overpriced food. Will never go back.

I hesitate to spread the word about the Aquarium Lounge as it is hard enough to get in on a weekend as it is. ;-) The Aquarium has been a Fairmont standard in excellence for many years; at least since my arrival in 1983. It has changed hands a time or two over the years, but the great food keeps... More

I have been going to the restaurant for years, using it as my first choice for special accessions due to the ambient atmosphere this small eatery employs. The food preparation is above average even if it were situated in a more cosmopolitan area but more detail needs to be applied to table service and usual restaurant etiquette by the staff.... More
