Food was very good but pricy. We sat in the back which is more casual. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must especially on weekends. Call before going.

This place is absolutely one of my favorite places to eat. The salads with their house dressing..the bread with garlic butter and cinnamon butter..the steaks and seafood come out sizzling u can't go wrong on this menu!

I took my wife and kids in for dinner. It was awkward, surrounded by what seemed like couples on a date. My daughter even noticed the sappy love music playing. Food is good but a little pricey.

For all that the atmosphere lacks, the seafood more than makes up for a worthwhile meal. Even the salads are outstanding. Put it on your bucket list.

Wonderful! I had Alfredo Fetecini and it was delicious and ended up bringing half of it home for later...very good service and food. Will go back there again. Parking is limited so have to park on the street...but that's worth it all.

Being an avid aquarist I was curiously enticed by the name. Decided to check it out in hopes of having a bite to eat whilst gawking or ridiculing the quality of the "Aquariums" yet there wasn't a tank in sight. Hoping to reach someone who's expectations might be crushed as mine were. Maybe the foods ok? Thank you. Good day.

My sister and I were celebrating our 54th birthday with our husbands. The place is a bit dismal and when you walk in you are right in the main dining room that means that if you sit at one of the front tables which we were you would see everyone walking in the door in front of you.

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!
