This diner type restaurant is opposite the touch tanks and readily accessible for all. They have burgers and fries, sodas and salads and make a great effort to recycle as well as using earth friendly products. This is a step up from typical diner food...More

The food was good and inexpensive for an aquarium. We enjoyed the outside seating along side the pond.

Kids seem to get hungry all the time. So pop in to Mote's tucked away little diner and have some of their delicious french fries...enough to share with the entire family. They also have great milkshakes and smoothies.

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!
