So beautiful and really does feel like your underwater. Only thing I would say is don’t make your reservation at 5:45pm like us because I felt like they were rushing us to leave for closing.

Our server was AMAZINH and the aquarium portion was fantastic! But the food left much to be desired. My husband had the tacos and the shells literally fell apart they were so dry, the fried mozerella was basically fast food style mozerella sticks, and my clam chowder was awful. Our kiddos pasta was fine! For what we paid we were quite disappointed, but the service and aquarium experience like I said were great!

The service would have received 4 stars. But it’s a group effort and the Host at the front are rude. Usually more than one and front house manager is floating. The ladies at the host desk seem unknowledgeable and short sentence with guest. They have ripped off the entrance to the restaurant and group you up in two or three families in the tunnel leading into the dinning hall. NO social distance practice at all. Then on the way out several family waiting in the same area and we could not get through to leave. Once we got through we had to wait for a rude host to open the ropes off area. I’m not even sure if the roped off entrance into the restraint is within code for fire marshals.

Food was good! Little pricey for what you get but your paying for the ambience of the aquarium. It was a little loud however it was a Saturday night with lots of families.

Horrible horrible food. Service was even worse. Some of the most unfriendly staff I’ve dealt with. Our waiter even just dropped our check on out table when still eating.

Took my daughter for her birthday- she turned 4. Primarily chose for ambiance. Food is mediocre at best. Would not recommend if you are going for a good meal.

It was a neat place. I had the shrimp tacos and my daughter had the shrimp fettuccine Alfredo. Mine was okay but my daughters was very very good. It was so yummy. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.

I took my family as part of their Opryland Christmas gift. We arrived an hour before our reservation, and we were seated right away. Our waitress was delightful and so sweet to the kids. We will be back.

Definitely a kid restaurant. The food is just nothing special. Your kid will love it but if you’re a food snob, you won’t be impressed. The drinks are just so so. The service was ok but nothing to text home about, but the kids liked the fish and the experience.

Cheese stick app was horrible so skip it.

It was ok. Very loud with kids running around.
I thought the presentations based on website picture would have been more impressive. Server brought check but never offered dessert ?
Prices were a bit high for the shrimp and fries dinner for what he received.

Food was mediocre and overpriced. The waiter wasn’t overly friendly and seemed uninterested in his job. It was our first time visiting and we enjoyed seeing the fish but probably wouldn’t return. Also, we made a reservation the day before and we’re seated at a table in the back behind another table so our view of the fish was obstructed. Disappointed in our experience.

Our waitress was outstanding, considering she had 5 adults who wanted endless martinis, and 4 children under the age of 8!!

She was patient, kind and quick!

Food was absolutely terrible. Cold, hard noodles for the kids noodles. Clam chowder was nasty. Shrimp tacos were almost inedible because the taco shell was so stale you couldn’t bite through it. Definitely not worth the money! The aquarium was cool though.

It took awhile to be seated while the hostess continued their conversation and stated they were awaiting a table to become available but there were several empty booths. The waitress was not very personable. Mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and didnt get so much as a happy birthday or the cake I requested for after our meals. Took our order and checked on us maybe twice.

Even though the food is a bit pricey, overall you get your money's worth. Very peaceful atmosphere and very clean. The waiter was very nice and knew a lot about the aquariums and history of the fish. This was our second time eating at this restaurant and I think it was even better this second time. I would recommend it to all ages.
