We have eaten here before with guests from outside of Houston. We wanted our granddaughter to see the atmosphere. We ordered mostly salads and seafood. The food was very good especially the fish tacos and the redfish. This is a good family fun eating place.

This was a very unique restaurant, pricey but well worth the price due to the atmosphere and entertainment by the animated animals. Great selection of dishes for varying taste, you should not miss this venue.

The food is good but not amazing and the prices are pretty high. We go because of the fun atmosphere!
