“Enter through the Aquarium Mall food court and find an etertaining deck with a bar and adjacent oyster bar. Tent area and open air area with tables and umbrellas too. Belly up to the side of the deck with cocktails, seafood, or food from the food court. Kids welcome here to dine at a picic table, but it can be boysterous. Families lean toward the lower non-deck area with kids.”
