The host said 30-45 minutes wait. After 90 minutes, we were finally sat at a table. We sat for another 15 minutes waiting for the waitress. We finally got up and left. I recommend you do not go. It was a terrible experience especially with empty tables waiting for reservations that had passed.

This place's only draws are the views of the marina,and the two story aquarium inside,which is,admittedly impressive. After that,all you get is average tasting expensive food.

We went down to see the Boardwalk and found some great places. We had already eaten when we got to the aquarium, but we decided to go in for a drink and we're pleasantly surprised. The aquariums are very well maintained. Although we didn't eat we saw what other people were having and it looked delicious and we heard no... More

I have lived in the Clear Lake area for more than 20 years and watched them build this beautiful restaurant. This used to be a premier destination for date nite and other special occasions. Not any more... Food is just ok, not great. We had (2) shrimp dinners, (1) dinner salad, (2) ice teas and a chocolate wrapped cheese cake... More

Kemah Boardwalk in Feb is dead most shops are closed even though it was 87 degrees today. We decided to try this since it was next to the motel and traffic is heavy here. I ordered southern fried fish and chips, and my wife god crispy fish and chips. Good portions and the food was good. But $17.99 each was... More

Very pricey. Food ok but nothing special. Drinks very high. Not really underwater, but the aquarium wall is nice.

This restaurant not only has good seafood at decent prices, but also a wonderful atmosphere with various large fish tanks around the restaurant. There is a very large tank in the center (greater than ceiling height and probably over 20 ft wide), and another simulating a coral reef. The three of us had different meals, and all were good.

We love this restaurant. They have a variety of foods for adults, children and vegetarian. That is our main restaurant to dine at when visiting Kemah Boardwalk. The big aquarium wall with all the different fish is fun to see! We have never been disappointed and will return there on future visits.

I love sitting next to the tank while I dine. That being said the food itself is just alright. You are paying for the atmosphere-just remember that. The entree itself was nothing memorable, but the desserts-yum.
