engagement at the aquarium

The surprise was ruined! I proposed at the Downtown aquarium 4/19/14 and was supposed to be a surprise proposal for my now fiancé and was my dream because i watched many online proposal videos at aquariums around the world and thought this one would be the same but the waiter left a receipt on the table at the BEGINNING of the dinner that said "proposal dive" that my fiancé had seen without anyone noticing because i ... view more

Downtown Aquarium

When I think of the Aquarium, I think of the ambience, the white tigers, the HUGE aquarium in the middle of the restaurant, the appetizers and drinks, NOT the entrees. The food is decent but I wouldn't say the pricey meals is all what you're paying for. You're paying for the scenery and environment, which is completely worth it!\r \r But warning...there is never not a wait to eat dinner at this place! One time, my ... view more

Fun and Entertaining

I have visited the Aquarium with my youngest adult daughter on more than on occassion. I just recently took my Daycare preschoolers to the Aquarium as we were learning about Ocean Life. The children loved it and requested that we go again, and we did. Wish the place could have been a little bigger, however, considering the space... it is a nice get-away and adventure. I visited the restaurant with my oldest daughte... view more

Drink and play at Tilman Fertitta's seven-acre, downtown aquatic adventure. The Appeal Houston's first public aquarium was designed to entertain the masses. The $38-million world-class complex, perched on the redeveloped 400 block of Bagby, boasts 500,000 gallons of visible underwater tanks with more than 200 species of marine life--and that's just skimming the surface. The restaurant has an extensive menu tha... view more

TIGER CRUELTY

The fish are fine. Parking was expensive and a disaster! No parking! WE drove around for at least 30 min before stalking someone to their car and waiting for their spot. And, don't get me started on the poor white tigers living in a h hole. Two large tigers live in an extremely tiny cement prison cell. No grass, no light, not even dirt... just cement. And there are thousands of kids and parents banging on the g... view more

Mediocre

Definitely dont go here for the food. The atmosphere is fun, but if you are looking for great seafood then this place will disappoint!

great place for kids

This is a great place to bring your kids. When we first got there, we thought the place was closed, but it was empty so we pretty much had the aquarium and outdoor venue to ourselves. The attendants were very friendly and let us ride whatever rides we wanted whenever wanted for as long as we wanted. \r \r Granted the food isn't fantastic, but you shouldn't come here is that is what you are mainly after, great fo... view more

Great for Kids

Let's face it the reason you come here is for the giant fish tank in the center of the dinning room. My family and I ate at this location and the one at Kemah boardwalk. The food is consistently good. It's a little pricey but you are supplementing the cost of that fish tank. Service is good. We enjoyed taking are kids around to look at all the different fish. It's a fun place to visit and great for the kids. ... view more
