THIS is what I expected when visiting the attached aquarium! There's a huge tank in the middle that the tables are arranged around. The view, of course, was great! The food was good as well and our server was attentive and kind. It's more pricey, but still not too bad.

The aquarium is fun and a great way to spend an afternoon. The restaurant is bad. I have eaten there three times and each was abysmal. Perhaps it is adequate for kids that want bad chicken tenders or a warm hotdog but I would not eat here as an adult that cares about food.

Food was hot and tasted great! The company of the fish was amazing! I ordered the chefs favorite , flounder stuffed with crab meat and topped with a lobster sauce with lobster meat.

Great seafood restaurant within the aquarium. It seemed strange eating seafood while watching fish swim in front of you. None the less the food and the service were excellent, servings large and the prices reasonable. It is affiliated with the Landry restaurant chain and is well known for excellent seafood as well as other dishes. The Captains platter was excellent... More

The Houston aquarium is beautiful! We enjoyed it very much and were able to see all kinds of fish that we would not see otherwise. I also went there one time on a workshop trip and got to pet a stingray! We had excellent food and service with a fantastic view!

The Aquarium restaurant serves a variety of seafood fare. They also have burgers and chicken fingers. The food was good, but expensive in my opinion. The staff was nice, and helpful. There is a giant aquarium in the middle of the room, which made this place worth the trip. The kids really enjoyed watching the fish and sting rays while... More

I think this has always been a "good not great" place to eat. However, its a great place to take the kids. Lots of fish and an incredible dining room. I only gave 3 stars for two reasons. I had a avocado and crab salad for $20. Where's the crab? For that matter, there wasn't much avocado either. Mostly just... More
