Better than ever

This had been our first visit since the fire and I was very pleased. Food and Service was the same, excellent and I love that the "bar" is non smoking and now has nice booths. Can't go wrong with the Prime Rib...

I really want to love this place....but upon my last two visits I have been really disappointed. The lack of a consistent chef makes coming here a crapshoot. I can't justify the amount of money I pay out for a meal here. My husband got the Jimmy Special sandwich once during lunch and it was amazing - one of the... More

You can't go wrong with the Aquarium Lounge! This tiny little hole in the wall keeps us coming back for their top notch food and excellent friendly service. From the steaks, to the pasta, to the amazing French Onion soup, you can't go wrong! Excellent place for locals for visitors alike!

This is my daughters favorite place to eat in Fairmont. We went last weekend for dinner and it was great. The salads were crisp and fresh and came with dinner. You had a choice of three salads. The appetizers were also great, especially the stuffed mushrooms. Steaks and prime ribs were all done just as we ordered. The delmonico steak... More

The Aquarium Lounge was highly recommended, buy some of the locals we were meeting with, as one of the best places in town to eat. I am sorry to say, I was not impressed. We were told we would need reservations for our party of 8, but that was far from the truth, I don't think they had 8 others... More

We were driving through after going to a festival and decided to stop based on the reviews. When we got in, we were asked if we had a reservation. We did not have one, but since somebody cancelled we were seated immediately. I ordered the roasted red pepper soup. When I tried it was lukewarm, the waitress took it back,... More

I had heard a lot about this place which set me up for some disappointment. We tried the spinach dip, not good, served with fried pita which tasted burnt. Entrees were a chicken dish and the stuffed shrimp. Shrimp was dry, overcooked. Chicken as ok. Highlight of the meal was the bread and smashed potatoes. Servers were nice. Dining area... More

Always had the scallops here (which are fabulous!) until our last visit. We splurged and had the Surf and Turf. We were not disappointed! Both the lobster and the filet were prepared to perfection. Service was impeccable. Will be returning and would highly recommend to others.

Just had lunch at The Aquarium Lounge today. Very, very good food. We had 6 people at my table and everyone had a delicious meal. You can't go wrong when you have lunch here. Last time I would not rate the service as great. But, this time we had excellent service, excellent food and excellent prices.
