    Everything was good; however, the “Louisiana Cajun” Pasta wasn’t nearly Cajun. When you think Louisiana Cajun, you think spicy.

    Nice place to take small children, the food is OVERPRICED...The service we received was only a 1 star. We asked to be seated in a booth and the hostess acted like it was HUGE inconvenience, he had to pick up two menus off the table, ( I asked as soon as he put one menu down.) The waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu at all and never returned to ask how our food was......Would not go again,

    Pictures online are very much misleading and food was okay. Overpriced for what you get. We got bread with our meals that was hard as a rock. Servers look over worked with little backing so we didn’t want to trouble them. Hope you guys get more help in there soon, the place has so much potential.

    Seated promptly drinks arrived quickly and our order was taken. Food was slow to come out. Shrimp were tough like they were over cooked. My dished included crawfish tails and they were icebox cold. Server disappeared and we had an appointment to get to so was not able to get icy crawfish heated or replaced. Comparing restaurants we like the Rainforest better, we won’t be back to the Aquarium

    The steak was tough and the asparagus soft. Lots of garlic in the mashed potatoes and the food in the menu is mostly seafood. Non-seafood options are limited. Watching fish and eating them wasn’t my vibe. Would have preferred more vegetable based meal options. Probably won’t eat here again. Money better spent at an aquarium.

    The aquarium restaurant was exemplary. I would suggest always getting a reservation for early for the best seating at the fish tanks. There were only two servers -they were hustling. Nonetheless they were quick, friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious and not skimpy, the broiled fisherman's platter was amazing! Food came out quick. Drinks were delicious and deserts were gorgeous. The creme Brulee' was gilded with edible gold. We got to see the very active fish be fed and the cool scuba divers. We will be coming back. If you are a sea lover or fisherman this would be an excellent place to be. There is a big ole' grouper in there, he is adorable. Rays sharks unicornfish an eel. The variety goes on. Very clean 100/10.

    I loved this place! So well-themed, full of fish tanks with huge fish, rays, and sharks. I would definitely go back! The coconut shrimp, clam chowder, ribeye, and chicken Ceasar salad were great. I wish they served bread but they don't.

    My wife and I got the seafood platter and half of the items on it seemed microwaved. The lobster tail was chewy and all you could taste was the Cajun seasoning, the breading on the fried tilapia was soggy, not crispy and what I think was supposed to be the stuffed shrimp was just mush. Not worth $45 it also arrived the same time as our appetizer so that's when we knew something was wrong

    Really wonderful restaurant. Food was delicious and it was nice to relax and watch the fish. Service was great. My order was accidentally wrong but they fixed it immediately and let me take the incorrect order. I hate seeing restaurants waste food if an order is incorrect so it was great to see that this one does not do that. The waiter was kind enough to box it up for me too. I will absolutely be coming back every time I am in Nashville.

    Got there about 15 minutes early and waited for our table to be ready. Got sat and waited 12 minutes for drinks, so we ordered our food at the same time. The restaurant is severely under staffed so we understood the waits. Food was about average, breading for fried shrimp we got was alittle bland, shrimp a tad over cooked. Atmosphere was decent, not too loud, but if you don’t wanna hear or see kids running around and crying it’s not for you. We didn’t mind it, as we knew what it was coming into it. Overall wouldn’t go back, but it was a fun experience to be had

    Went for my grandson’s birthday. I expected it to be moderately priced, as it’s an experience. What I did NOT expect was to be charged $9.50 for a kid’s souvenir cup, and then for his birthday cupcake, too. Neither of these were communicated to me to be an extra charge. Our bill, for 4 people, and 3 meals total, was $78. I paid, without a fuss, because it was his special day, but will never return.

    If you are looking for a unique place to dine, look no more! This place was fantastic and the reviews about the Louisiana Cajun Pasta did not lie! Honestly, I had a fantastic time but the only thing that kept me from giving it four stars was the speed of the service. The hostess was not at the stand when I arrived which kept me waiting for a little bit before I was sat. The server was very kind and friendly but again, was not efficient, especially since the restaurant was not busy at all. But again, overall, this place was AMAZING and extremely reasonable in price considering it’s a seafood restaurant in the south and not near an ocean. It’s a great spot for families or a cool date night.

    Staff friendly and helpful. Main courses pushed on us before appetisers even close to being finished. Food is very nice but not nice to feel so rushed and couldn’t enjoy the food due to the courses being served at the same time. This has happened on two occasions now.
