Sharks Underwater Grill

This is truly one of only a few can't miss bars in all of Orlando. The restaurant is located in between the Sea Lion and Walrus stadium and the Nautilus Theater. The bar is just inside the restaurant doors and doesn't require reservations, just walk right in.

In a hurry to get to a show and don't have time to sit back and enjoy it?  Go ahead and grab one to-go and head over to your destination, at least you got to take a quick peek.

Key West Kiss -
This will surely cool you off from the Florida sun. Bacardi rum, Midori, vodka and peach schnapps mixed with pineapple juice.
Review: Smooth, melon-y sour yet sweet, one of those that doesn't taste strong at all, but is.

Food
 
The full menu from the restaurant is available at the bar or at one of several tables inside the bar.


Atmosphere
 
The restaurant has one entire wall that is made out of a 660,000 gallon aqaurium that many species of shark and large fish call home. The Aquarium wall is clearly visible from the bar but that's not even the crown jewel in this amazing place, the bar itself is a saltwater aquarium!  Fish swim and crustacians scuttle right under your drinks.

Review
 
The bar is also home to the friendliest bartenders anywhere in town and may I be the first to tell you, they definitely know what they're doing behind the bar. It's a rare find when you can get the most interesting scenery and an expertly prepared drink in the same place. In the mood for a drink but not sure what? Just tell the bartenders what you like and they'll mix up something tasty just for you. 
 

Need an interesting fact while you're here? The black tip reef shark, featured prominantly in the large tank in the wall and in the pool out front, is responsible for the majority of shark bites in Florida and the nurse shark, which is also in the large tank, is second. (Bull sharks claim the "bite title" internationally, but not in Florida.)
