Fun dining experience, especially for the kids. Food was good but not fabulous, but not too high in price either. Servers were very friendly and attentive. Had reservations and were seated immediately.

Spent the day with family at the zoo and aquarium. Stopped into Dillon's for lunch. Excellent service. Food was very good. Atmosphere was great. Will go there again with friends and relatives that visit without visiting the zoo and aquarium.

We usually eat in the bar but you can opt to dine alongside the shark tank. The food, service and beer selection is always excellent. Live music on weekends.
