Shopping & Dining


Shoreline Grill Food Truck & Burger Barn Mobile food trailer

We have closed our Shoreline Grill until early March 2015 in order to complete some updates. We want to give you the best Aquarium experience possible – and that means the best food and dining experience possible! In the meantime, we have opened our mobile food unit at the Koch Pavilion area, behind and to the right of Dolphin Bay, as well as our Burger Barn window, on the ground floor between Otter Creek and the Dolphin Bay Underwater Viewing Room. 

Shoreline Grill

Let the Texas State Aquarium satisfy your appetite. With our variety of breakfast tacos, sandwiches, hot dogs, salads, pizza, ice cream, and more, we’re sure you will find what your taste buds are craving.

If you have scheduled a group tour at the Texas State Aquarium, you can arrange to have your lunch at the Shoreline Grill Food Court. We offer an excellent “lunch box” that is just right for small or large groups. Click on the link below to download your school or group lunch order form:
