Houston isn’t complete without a visit to the Aquarium Restaurant and a visit to the Aquarium itself. Imagine eating fish while watching them swim around you. Truly an experience to marvel at. Worth every minute and dime.

The food is good and the service is excellent. However for what you get the prices are a bit steep. Fun ambience with their unique aquariums. The rides are about pricey too. If you go prepare to spend much.

Like going here for the visuals - the aquarium is BEAUTIFUL!!!! The food is not bad - just isn't that good - the service and atmosphere do make it worthwhile- if you haven't been here - I think you'll enjoy it.

A group of friends introduced us to Happy Hour at the Aquarium Restaurant. We could not have been more pleased with the atmosphere, friendly bartender, menu selections. Highly recommend it!

Every time we visit the Aquarium Restaurant, the food is great and the service is awesome. The fish tanks are breathtaking and very relaxing to watch while you eat.

I'm not a fan of the food (never seems fresh and always over cooked). But my kids love it for the activities and mainly the fish tanks.

Yes they take reservations. There is an online form for special events but you will need to call for regular reservations.
