While traveling be sure you bring change so you can take advantage of any pressed penny machines you come across. These make great souvenirs. 

This location is inside the Opry Mills Mall, such a great place!

 

You walk in and there is a water tower with fish to check out while getting ready to get your table! Plus the gift shop is right there.

Then you walk through a water tunnel to your table. My kids thought this was the coolest thing. They tripped over me a few times looking up at the fish while walking.

They have taken care of every detail! The walls look like underwater rocks. My kids loved this there are starfish and coral on the rocks.

As you can see in the picture my daughter is pointing to the centerpiece of the whole room. The whole restaurant in circles around this huge fish tank. Every table has a view! While we enjoyed lunch we were treated to some divers there as well! They were cleaning the tank.

I will say though this was one time having a big family came to an advantage we got a great seat!

They took great care of the atmosphere, the lights, every nook, and cranny all made it feel as if you were truly underwater.

They took the details down to the unique salt and pepper shakers!

The tank was filled with tons of colorful fish, 2 sharks, several sting rays and a HUGE Manta Ray and Grouper!

The food was just as yummy! I had coconut shrimp, hubby had southern fried catfish, 2 of my kids had cheeseburger sliders and mac and cheese, and one had chicken and popcorn shrimp with ranch and carrots!

Looks like a great experience! I'd love to try out a restaurant that also doubles as an aquarium. I'd be entertained the whole night by all of the fishes and sea creatures!
