    Good service, and eye-catching aquarium views all around the huge tank, but average tasting food. The chicken on the chicken Caesar salad was overcooked and tough to cut. The seafood bisque was heavy on cream that overpowered the delicate seafood flavor. I tried to reserve a table for four diners at 5:30 but could reserve a table at 4:45 or after 7:00. From our 4:45 arrival to our 6:15 departure the restaurant was only one- third full. There were plenty of empty tables available at our preferred reservation time.

    The noise level is typical for a restaurant. The food was AMAZING!! My fiancé did say the steak was really good, but wasnt medium rare…it was rare, but overall said it was okay. The bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp was AMAZING! Our food was amazing! We definitely plan to go again sometime!

    This was a really cool experience! Order their specialty cocktails and keep their souvenir glass. A little overpriced for the quality of the food and amount of time it takes to touch the table (took us about 2 hours for 3 courses), but it does pay off with good seats viewing the ever-moving fish tank. Fish are active and beautiful, which makes the time go by peacefully. Paying more for the experience rather than the food, I’d say.

    We booked a birthday party for today with 5 children and 5 adults at 2:15 today and paid a $75 deposit. This week we received a text that changed our time from. 2:15 to 3:45. This birthday was supposed to include a behind the scenes tour for an additional $7 per guest. When we arrived At 3:20 we were told we needed to wait until closer to our appointment time to be seated. After being seated we had to tell Our server that we were there for a birthday party…this should have been something I would think should be put on our reservation, but we went with the flow. After ordering and waiting for our food we noticed it was getting close to our allotted time 3:45-5:15 to be finished and had yet to have a tour. We asked to speak to the manager who came out and had no clue about a birthday party. She told us she would take care of the kids meals but not the adults which was fine but also that there was no one there to do a tour. I honestly think if you are going to advertise birthday parties and charge a deposit for things you should do a little better to make sure those are communicated to your staff especially your managers. We since learned she was a general manager that would not even come out and talk to us a second time when she tried to keep a $75 deposit for a birthday party we didn’t get. We drove 65 miles to have an aquarium party and I still have a 4 year old asking why she didn’t have a tour. When our food finally came out it was cold and was not edible and our drinks were watered down. Is it standard practice to ruin a birthday party and force the guests to pay a deposit as well as for cold food because “she comped all she was going to”? In my opinion this was not worth the trip up there. I could have gotten a better birthday experience at McDonalds at a fraction of the cost and locally.

    The food was good. The waiter messed up our checks, we had split checks and this person ran one card for both checks and it was suppose to be separate and then couldn’t help us fix the issue. Other than that it was a good experience.

    We made reservations for 3 parties of 5, I explained to front of house, if he could try to sit us all in the same general area that would be appreciated, they did not sit us anywhere close together. Our table took an extremely long time to get our food, our salads were not brought before our meal and we were charged for a salad we did not even get. Our food was cold, our server was not very attentive and for the quality of the food the price was a bit high.

    We are from out of town (Virginia) and we were visiting Nashville for the week and before we came we were looking for a nice dinner for our last night and this place was rave!!! We were so pleased with everything service, food and our server. We had Quinton and he was on point with everything!!!! I am gluten free/allergic to gluten and he made sure that my food was good for me to eat. For Dessert we had the Creme Brulee. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Save your money for a real aquarium. Service was good and the aquarium itself was enjoyable, but the food was not good. I ordered shrimp scampi, which came in a bland, watery cream sauce - no sign of traditional scampi sauce ingredients like lemon or white wine. Husband ordered a fish dish that was so overdone it was chewy. Absolutely not worth the $100 it cost for the two of us.

    I took my daughters here for my youngest 4th birthday and we absolutely loved it. Such a fun experience!! Our server was fairly new but he was still awesome. If he didn’t know an answer he made sure to find out. The food was pretty good too. Not much of a seafood lover so I think that’s where my downfall was because I got steak and it was good but I feel like if I ate seafood I would have been happier. We also tried the gator bites and I did really like those.
