“Pricey but great food.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Pricey but great food. Over priced drinks, and just okay service. Would like to go back if in the area again to give it another try. Only because the food was that good!

“Very Disappointing Experience”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Our previous experience at Landry's Restaurants in Texas has being excellent. For that reason we elected to eat at this Landry's Aquarium location...BIG Mistake...Quality of the food is comparable to a fast food seafood restaurant's. After expressing my dissatisfaction to the server about the quality of the food, no corrective actions were taken, just excuses. Restaurant was crowded with Aquarium patrons, service was so slow, it appeared not to be ready to to handle a Spring Break crowd. The only bright spot was the molten chocolate cake- delicious and large enough for four to share. In summary, Aquarium experience...Excellent...Landry's Restaurant...Poor.

“Awesome atmosphere, great food!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This is a really neat atmosphere to eat a meal. It isn't necessary to pay for the aquarium to eat here and the huge aquarium tanks and fish that surround you while eating are pretty awesome. It's funny that I don't recall the food as much as the atmosphere, but the service was good and the food was good just not the focal point.

“Great venue, average food.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Average meal, better than average service. Had to send back the Key Lime Pie. It was pretty cool to have dinner at the Aquarium, but there are much better options close by.

“As close as you can get to dinner under the sea”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I had dinner at the Aquarium Restaurant and the atmosphere was awesome. You could have almost held your breathe for as long as the mermaids were out, but it was neat all the same. They promote a Mermaid show at 6:00pm and 8:00pm on Saturdays. The show lasted about 5 minutes. If you choose to watch the show, reserve a table for 15 minutes prior to the show and ask them to reserve you a table near the glass. I recommend the Water Room. The food was great and the service was great.
