    My Son was very excited to see all the fish and stingrays. Our only complaint was that it was too cold in there and my son was too cold to eat his food. We couldn’t leave fast enough to get warmed up.

    Usually very impressed and one of our family favorites however cannot say this about our most recent visit. Firstly they changed the butter noodles for the children’s pasta which was extremely disheartening because my child’s favorite, hopefully they will change back. Also the wait time to get our food was in excess of an hour. When the food arrived it was cold however did not send back in fear it would take ever longer. It was also troublesome to hear our waitress place a rush order for the table beside us on their kids meals when no rush order was placed for my child’s meal. Extremely disappointed with the quality of food and service on this date.

    Food was not worth the price. Had to ask multiple times for things like ketchup and cocktail sauce. Very frustrating we spent over $100.00 here. Will not come back.

    Atmosphere is extremely special. You find yourself amid fish who are doing their fishy things and you realize you have no cares in the world. We got to watch their staff feed the fish and clean the plants in the aquarium. We thought the menu was varied enough that everyone found something great to eat.

    As a tourist destination, the food is a bit overpriced. Our server Dustin was great, the food was very good, and we had a lot of fun. We would definitely go back, just maybe not too often due to cost.

    It was a very nice experience. Food was enjoyable for the most part. Staffing could be a little bit better but seems to be a problem in most areas these days. It took my girlfriend three drink selections to find one they could make with no working blender to out of type of liquor

    Great meal with 5 teenage grandkids- one was gluten free & had a hiccup e/being served fried shrimp on her plate. We ordered side of grits that were never served - those were the only glitches. Otherwise good food & friendly server. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

    The whole appeal of Aquarium is in the name- you go for the aquarium setting, which is awesome (especially if you are sat by the main tank in the middle- which we were!) The service was prompt and we were treated well. The food was just ok. Shrimp was tough and overcooked for most of our party. We had a sampler of fried onions and those were tasty. I had the lettuce wraps as my meal and was pleased. Taking everything into account, I’d just say this place is OK. Definitely go for the experience but don’t expect the best meal of your life either.

    I was just disappointed that the mermaid was not there that was the whole reason of taking this Nashville trip so my granddaughter could see a mermaid at the aquarium restaurant I did not tell her so she wasn’t disappointed but I was I tried to check online before we left to see when the mermaid would be there and it would just direct me back to the hours I tried to call the phone number but nobody ever answered but it was still a good trip

    The restaurant was just ok. We spent a lot of money on food that was just so-so and the ambience was just ok also. The fish tanks were not that impressive. It was basically an over priced Captain D’s.

    I was excited to go sense it was my 21st and when we got there it wasn’t a long wait even though we were early. The service was fast but the food wasn’t worth it. Not to mention my husband and I couldn’t have a decent conversation because the way the tables are set up you hear the people behind you conversations. Plus parents kept letting their kids run around and people were laughing extremely loud and talking very loud so it was hard to hear the server also. It honestly wasn’t worth 109 for two people.
