The food is limited mainly to hot dogs, burgers and salads but things the kids love. Unfortunately it is does not have the healthiest offerings which makes it hard if you are trying to get the kids to eat right. I did have a veggie...More

Located in Mote Marine Laboratory this venue has standard and limited fare such as hot dogs and burgers. Limited menu, clean surroundings, reasonable price and good service. Nothing extraordinary.

Over priced and undersized. This one is run by one of those Mancini brothers. Go to the Old Salty Dog or New Pass Baitshop. You can go in and out of the Aquarium with your ticket.

We were hungry while at the Mote and decided to give it a try. $20 for a hotdog, chicken sandwich, and chili cheese fry which I think is reasonable for a diner in a tourist attraction. Food was as expected nothing exceptional.

We were hot, thirsty and hungry! This diner delivered! Well, they didn't actually delivered, but they called our number and we enjoyed all of our food. The food was hot, fresh and tasted much better than anticipated. We were very happy that we stopped in!

We've visited museums and aquariums in a number of cities.....and typically avoid the food. But due to time restrictions at the Mote Aquarium we tried the diner and was pleasantly surprised. Having Mac & Cheese (wife and I both had) was unusual for an aquarium...More

This was so much better than leaving the aquarium to find a place to eat. It is typical diner food: burgers, fries, onion rings and smoothies. The food was prepared fresh and everything was good and hot. The chili cheese fries were a yummy treat....More
