“you are really paying for the ambience and location: conveniently located on the boardwalk with nice visual feast of wall-to-wall aquarium and exotic fish, touched with trendy seafaring decor.”
“The staff did offer "pagers" so I could enjoy a drink at the patio bar outside while I waited for my table.”
“went with a crew of 10 an only one person 'liked' their food.”
“It's a nice restaurant that the whole family can enjoy.”
“Overall, I enjoyed my experience at Aquarium and will return the next time I visit Kemah, TX.”
“The food was good and waiters/waitresses were very friendly.”
“the food is decent, but overpriced for it's quality and portion.”
“The aquarium was interesting for about the first 15 minutes.”
An enjoyable Sunday afternoon. Stopped off in Kemah for dinner as was pleasantly surprised with no wait for a table at 5:30 PM. The tuna steaks were grilled to perfection and the grilled shrimp were done just right. Dinner for 4 is still around $35 each, but that included an appetizer and a couple drinks. Overall a very pleasant meal.
Huge disappointment. We were told the wait was 30-45 minutes. The pager doesn't work outside their building, so you can't even enjoy the outside entertainment for your wait. We finally got to our 2nd table 1hr.15min later. They tried seating us in the hottest (80 degrees) table in the rest. first. The aquarium was interesting for about the first 15 minutes. The food was over-priced, portions were small, service was confusing (3 diff. waiters) and slow. From arrival to departure was 2hrs. 30 min. and we did not very long to eat-we were starving and there just wasn't much to eat anyway. Not a family place.
overrated, bland food. Wow.. this place really sucks. The aquarium itself is pretty sorry.. I've seen better in New Orleans & Monterrey. The food is very pricey for what you get and its no good either. We had to wait 1 hr to be seated and would have left if we didn't already pay for the not-optional $5 parking.
Great Experience. I don't know what happened with those people who had a bad experience here. I took my Mom and Dad and hubby for my Mom's birthday. The food was fantastic. Dad and my husband had the Fried seafood platter, Mom had the broiled stuffed shrimp and I had a bowl of Lobster bisque and the Shrimp Enbrochette. We all walked out with full stomachs and a smile on our faces. It was a great experience!
once is enough. Ok, it's not every day that you see a 3 story fish tank inside a resturant. But after you've seen it.........you've seen it. And there is no reason to go back because the food and service is just ordinary at best, Yet pricey as hell. And you tend to leave the place with that "I've been scamed" feeling. Fortunetly in a costal city this size with all the great places to choose from, you only have to put up with this crap once.
Wonderful experience, but $$$$. Great atmosphere, great food, but very expensive. Be ready for a LONG wait unless you go at off times.
GREAT FOOD & VIEW!. The view is great, the food is great and I can't wait to go back. The only downfall is the wait. Need more tables or something to make the wait shorter.
looks great, taste less filling. The Aquariums' best attraction is the LIVE fish! I went with a crew of 10 an only one person 'liked' their food. While the plates looked great when served, it had a very tasteless appeal. I would have to rank it one notch above fast food. Also be ready to spend twice as much than what would be normal!
