The Sharks Underwater Grill It is one of restaurants coolest in Orlando in terms of ambiance.
On this post
It has a menu focused on seafood, but also has red meat and chicken options.
The location of this restaurant is close to the Shark encounter.
This is the area of Sea World dedicated to sharks and rays.
The restaurant's great differential lies in its ?decoration?: some walls are, in fact, a shark tank.
In other words, the most feared beings of the sea walk calmly while you eat.
And it's not like a simple aquarium of those we see in shopping malls throughout Brazil.
It's an aquarium lord with real giant sharks!
What is Sharks Underwater Grill like?
At the entrance of the restaurant, you can already observe some sharks, as well as other fish. They are located around the bridge that gives access to the restaurant.
Also outside, there is a bar.
There, you can order some drinks and snacks, for example.
In addition, there is also a counter where you can book a table or confirm your reservation online.
This is important information about Sharks Underwater Grill as it is difficult for you to enter the place without having a reservation.
Inside the restaurant, the waiting area has an aquarium with some small and colorful fish.
The Sharks Underwater Grill is submerged in the same tank as the Shark Encounter. In this way, the restaurant attracts a lot of attention from those who like the bottom of the sea.
In addition, the environment is a little dark and the reflections of the water form a very beautiful play of light.
The restaurant works with table service, or the famous à la carte service.
Thus, there is a menu and you must place your order with a waiter, who will bring it to your table.
The Sharks Underwater Grill Aquarium
You will eat with an incredible view of the aquarium that contains hundreds of fish and marine animals, including several sharks!
The species that inhabit the tank and can be observed during their meal are sharks:
- Nurse shark;
- Run coast (sandbar shark);
- Atlantic blacktip shark;
- Bull (sandtiger shark).
In addition, there are also some species of fish:
- Saw (smalltooth sawfish);
- Mero (goliath grouper);
- Red fish or red drum.
What is the menu at Sharks Underwater Grill
Although small compared to other Orlando restaurants, the menu at Sharks Underwater Grill is quite complete.
Especially when it comes to a restaurant inside parks.
Therefore, you can choose between appetizers, starters (which correspond to the main dishes), kids menu and desserts.
The portions aren't big so they really only serve one person.
The options are varied, with dishes of filet mignon with fries, chicken and lots of seafood (see what we ordered at video at the end of this post).
Sharks Underwater Grill offers a choice of juices, sodas, water and, of course, the famous vending machines.
In addition, being a relatively elegant restaurant, the restaurant has an excellent wine list. You can also make the option of alcoholic drinks.
However, keep in mind that the minimum drinking age in the United States is 21.
The SeaWorld it is a very careful park for people who have allergies or restrictions.
In this way, you must tell the waiter who will serve you what your food observations are.
After the notice, you will receive a folder, where you will have some information about the care taken by the restaurant.
In fact, it is here that you can confirm that Sharks Underwater Grill is the most suitable restaurant for an allergen to eat.
In addition to all the information given by the waiter, you can also count on an explanation from the chef.
He will tell you what processes your meal will go through, reassuring you about the allergy.
Finally, after getting informed, ask the waiter for the allergen-free menu. There will be some food options, which may be different depending on the day.
Sharks Underwater Grill price average
Sharks Underwater Grill prices are a little high.
For example, the lowest value (US$ 7) corresponds to a bowl of soup of the day.
And the main dishes can reach US$ 33.
For a couple to have a full meal at this restaurant, consider that the cost will be at least US$ 100.
Also, the service fee charged (tips) can reach 18%.
Sharks Underwater Grill Tips
In order for you to decide if Sharks Underwater Grill is worth going to, consider a few tips.
It is very rare that you are unable to attend the Sharks Underwater Grill without a reservation.
They can be made online, free of charge, through the Sea World website.
Another option is to reserve your table at the entrance of the restaurant, where there is a booth for this purpose.
If you want to eat there and haven't made a reservation, I recommend arriving at least 1 hour before the time you want to eat to wait for a table (yes, it may be possible too).
Is it Worth Eating at the Shark Underwater Grill at Seaworld?
Although the atmosphere of the restaurant is very interesting, the taste of the food is reasonable, especially considering the value.
There are other tastier and less expensive restaurants in Orlando.
In addition, it is also worth saying that the tank where the sharks are located is the same as the Shark Encounter.
Quite objectively, if you are looking for amazing food, you will certainly be disappointed!
However, Seaworld doesn't have many options for good restaurants, so this ends up being one of the best for your day, along with the Voyagers Smokehouse, Terrace Garden Buffet and The Seafire Inn.
