We love to visit the aquarium followed by a late lunch or early dinner. It's a wonderful place to take out of town guest. When you have the Landry's card they make your visit even more wonderful.

We had a fabulous time at the Aquarium ! The Host sat us at the perfect table and the kids had a blast! The food was delicious and the server was amazing! Definitely a must if you are in Denver!

The salmon was excellent! Went here for my kid’s 3yo birthday and he loved it. Music was a bit loud, which would’ve been problematic if I was there for an intimate conversational dinner. Service was a bit slow, but we enjoyed the leisure. But overall - impressed with the food, and delighted with the ambiance and aquarium views!

Prices are high, especially for lunch. You're paying for the ambience (and probably for the smaller crowds due to Covid). The food is average, and they didn't have the gumbo I ordered. Music is noisy and intrusive, but the service was definitely attentive, and it's fun to eat in front of the fish (although there's no mermaid show during Covid either). I'd suggest checking out the menu online first, and if you're ok with the prices, go for it.

First let me say the food was terrible and over priced, when we finally got it. We were there for over an hour and I never got a water glass and had to ask someone who wasn’t our own waiter for a refill. We ordered onion rings and a New England clam chowder as an appetizer and about 40 mins later they brought out callimari (and no soup). When we pointed this out the waitress took it back and it was another 20 mins before we had our appetizers (again, no soup until I asked a second time where it was with the response “I thought you wanted that with your entre”......who orders a soup to come with the entre?!?!). Our food finally arrived over an hour after we ordered and it was all bad. $25 golden brown shrimp was nothing more than cheap shrimp hastily fried and thrown over soggy French fries. My daughters chicken tenders and fries arrived cold. And we should note that there were only 5 tables since it was COVID protocols. I would never ever eat there again, even if they offered a free meal. I would prefer to pay for good food and even mediocre service, which this was neither........this review has no bearing on the Aquarium exhibit which I think is fantastic

Very understaffed and service reflected that. Need to work on staff being knowledgeable as well. There was no apology for drinks and food taking longer than expected. Only got drinks and dessert and drinks were good but nothing special. Dessert presentation was great and tasted good as well. If you get a seat right next to aquarium it is a cool experience. Wouldn't go back for dinner- especially with the expensive prices. No happy hour anymore.

There was only three to four tables of guests including my party and it took the waiter 35-40 minutes to take our dinner order.

My reservation was made for 11:30, but nobody was at the front desk and nobody was to be found anywhere. I waited for a while, as another customer was leaving, she told me I would have to go in and be agressive to get service because they were in the same situation earlier. As I walked in the restaraunt I had to yell at a gentleman who attempted to ignore me and ask to get a table. He was full of excuses. As I sat and ate lunch with my daughter, I could see the same issue was happening with guests coming after me. Terrible customer service and nobody took any kind of responsibility.

While the food was good, the service was not fantastic. We asked for multiple water refills and they were extremely slow coming. We were also waiting for a beer refill that never arrived. It was cold. The heaters could have been better placed. The distance for tables was very comfortable and we appreciated the proper mask wearing of the staff.

We enjoyed a day at the aquarium and finished it off with lunch! While covid made it impossible to dine inside, we were able to dine outside in the tented area. The service was great! Our waitress was super attentive and helpful! She was the first server I’ve ever had to ask if we had any allergies at our table so she could communicate that with the chef, which we did. If we lived here, we would go back again for the service alone!

It's good if you want to get your kids something to eat before going home. We can't wait for the main restaurant to re-open! It is more fun to eat next to the aquarium.

During a time when many restaurants are closed, they have the ability to serve us in the back area that has one side that can open up. Felt safe with the distancing from other tables and great open air. Service was fantastic, as usual here

The city was on restriction so we could not dine in the aquarium. We were in a garage with one other group. They did the best they could but it was disappointing to pay the same price without the experience.

The food was terrible we went a few years ago and the food has definitely gone down hill from there it use to be so great but now it was terrible the only thing that was good was the one piece of fish we got on our plates but that’s it. And we ordered a lot.

The limited availability of food was acceptable, the quality and taste lacked in comparison to the cost that we paid. We expected far more from this restaurant. We were very disappointed.

We are not picky diners and belong to the Landry’s club. Fish and chips were over cooked :(. Service was super slow (only 1 server so that’s probably why). Sorry to see it so empty on a Sat night. There were 4 of us, I have eaten at the restaurant often, the food is never spectacular sadly.
