The restaurant had several very loud tables with people getting up from their tables, standing next to ours talking loudly, letting their kids run around and scream. Half the restaurant was empty but service was a tad slow. Maybe their under staffed? But my kids thought the fish swimming around were cool.

While this is a fun place to eat, I expected the food to be better. It was just average at best.

Our table was ready immediately and we didn’t have to wait with a reservation. Our server was excellent and attentive. Even though you could tell the restaurant was short staffed, the service and food were still outstanding.

Seemed like there were not many less expensive options. Appetizer order was never put in so we didn’t get it.

Overall, a great experience. only complaint I would have is the price is a little expensive. But watching the fish swim around while eating made it worth the price.

The aquarium part was nice. But we waited almost an hour just to get our food. I ordered a mixed drink and it was way to strong. Was told all the alcohol was poured directly on top. After eating I started feeling sick from the food. Don’t think I’ll be going back.

We had a reservation and were immediately seated. Our sever seemed to be pretty new, but was very friendly. Food was great. It is a little more expensive than we usually spend, but it was a birthday dinner!!!

Our waitress was awesome and our 3 year old loved watching the scuba divers in the tank but the food was very expensive and really gross. The fish tacos weren’t edible.

It was amazing - best place to take my animal loving 8 year for her birthday!
Plus I didn’t expect the food to be as good as it was.
Our server was very sweet, as well.

This is owned by the same company as Rainforest Cafe. So if you don’t care for the food there, you wont care for the food here. I do not and didn’t realize till my food came out. The setting is nice; however, definitely more for kids and not for a date night. Definitely should of done more research, so my loss. Service was great, food not that great, and an cool setting for families.

This restaurant is amazing! The food was fresh and delish, be sure to get the stuffed shrimp! Our waitress Samantha was absolutely the best, the kind of person you would certainly ask for every time. What a great experience!

The hostess could have been a bit more helpful and attentive but our waitress made up for it. The waitress was amazing, friendly and super attentive. The food was very good. We all got something different and were happy with everything. We would definitely go back.

My husband and I reserved online in advance. They gave us 1st class service. We don't eat pork and the waiter took his time to help us make the right choice AND offered substitutions. Ambiance was very nice. Staff was so polite. Food was delicious. All of that made the higher than average prices worth it! Perfect date night restaurant!

My fiancé and I made reservations to stop and eat on our trip back from gatlingburg. The tank was very beautiful, the mixed drinks was good, the food was also good. I felt the stuffed shrimp was a little spicy though so heads up. This is a family friendly establishment. There was kids running around everywhere. Kids screaming at the fish. We didn’t know what to expect walking in but we was seated in the front where a lot of the commotion was going on at. Our waitress was very polite and kind. Over all a good place to eat just very loud.

Atmosphere once in the restaurant and the service was great. Would have preferred for it to not be inside a mall. 2 items we tried to order were not available at this location. Would have liked to have a lunch menu with smaller portions.

The atmosphere is amazing and service was fine even though they were short staffed. That said food was over cooked and a bit bland. For the price I wouldn’t eat there again.

This restaurant is way overpriced. The food is ok but not for the price. The drinks are watered down and overpriced as well. The service was good and the aquarium was nice. I wouldn't really recommend it for the food but if you want a one time experience seeing the fish tank it's ok if you want to waste some money.
