We had Valentine's Day dinner here and it was really nice. The food was good and the service was great as well. There were some loud kids there but they left right after we got there. I think on an ordinary night it tends to be a more family oriented place so I wouldn't go if I wanted a quiet/romantic dinner.

The food and the service were amazing, no issues there whatsoever. The reason why I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because the "Romance under the Sea" reservation did not really seem to mean much. It seems like we would have recieved the same service and food if we had walked in off the streets. Additionally, the menu and price of the Romance under the sea were on the table for my wife to see. Not that it really matters if my wife sees the price but for a date night where she did not know what to expect, it kinda put a damper on it. Imagine if it was a date night for newly dating people. Lastly, it seems like we were amongst regular patrons, I would think if you are reserving and paying for a special occasion, the resturant should be sectioned off accordingly. Overall, it was a great night, the complaints are not louder than the good. Would recommend to other people.

Enjoyed the atmosphere, how can you beat water views and 3 story aquariums. It was 35 degrees with 15 mph north wind so not your typical trip to Kemah. We were one of about 5 tables being used due to the weather. Great dinner with great service, we love the water theme and we'll be back when it warms up.

We drove from Dallas to come here and visit Kemah. This was the best family dining experience I have had in a very long time period, and with kids EVER. It was so wonderful that they could look at the beautiful fish while the food was arriving and after they got to feed stingrays, a very educational and fun experience. Staff was GREAT! a little pricey but for me it was worth the extra.

The server was not what I would of expected from a establishment like yours. She was very catty at times. She went as far as telling me I was trying to walk the bill when she had my card in a black envelope in her hands. Our drinks didn’t get a refill until we were already done d with our food and she had already gave us put bills. I asked if she could put several others meals on my ticket she claimed she was unable to do so, so I had to pay several different individual charges rather one ticket. I had mentioned prior to giving her my order that I was a Landry member then brought it again after she gave us the ticket... she then proceeded to say she was unable to put in the points after the fact.

Food was just run of the mill chain restaurant food, nothing special and no where close to good enough to warrant the price paid.

The Aquarium had a nice atmosphere to dine in. Our server, Tejvana, was very sweet to my family and made our experience pleasant. However, food-wise, it is average and slightly overpriced but you’re paying for the ambience.

Quality of food was good, but some in party felt that it was overpriced for what they received. First time for many of us to visit for a meal. Will likely return to Landry’s or Bubba Gump vs. returning to Aquarium.

The food tasted great but overpriced. I got very little seafood or meat in the pasta dish. Menu was limited. Couldn’t get calamari unless ordering a $22 appetizer that had other items that were just ok but nothing special.

We brought our son and daughter-in-law. Couldn’t wait! But wound up extremely disappointed! The aquarium was neat but the food!!! The value for the price was atrocious. It tasted like it came from a fast food restaurant. We will NOT dine at the Kemah restaurant again!

Wife and I went on a date and our waiter was Amazing. He was professional but yet personable. He even sang happy birthday to my wife. He was friendly and humorous. Almost as we have know each other for years. We will request him on our next visit.

There is nothing extraordinary about the restaurant! You basically pay for the fish tank maintenance, that’s the reason why the food is overpriced!

My daughter and I really enjoyed ourselves. I really appreciated how the Aquarium abided by the social distancing guidelines and we went early enough where there weren’t many other family’s there at all!
