Just my 2 cents....
The resteraunt is a joke and a rip off! I am a cook by trade and can tell you i was very dissapointed when we went for a friends birthday, and so was most of the party for that mater, the captins punch was by far the best part of the meal, but at around 12 bucks not cheap. Our apps came out with the meal, as opposed to before. We had a vegiterian who is lactose intolerant in the party, they gave her a hard time to take shrimp off a dish an still put cheese on it! My wifes fish was ok but dry an you could tell it was a frozen product. Sauces tasted like they come from a can. For the price there are far beter restaraunts in walking distance from the aquarium.
As far as the aquarium is concerined there is nothing like it in colorado, an from that stand point its great! But truth be knowen my wife and I are underwhelmed. I wish they had more planted tanks, an in the tropical section that is suposed to have tanks from SA, i wish they had discus, which they dont! Really the biggest draw is the salt water fish, which accounts for 2/3 of their tank space.
Honestly the aquarium was beter before landrys took over. Just mho. The zoo is a beter value.
