Sharks Underwater Grill at SeaWorld Orlando

One of the highlights of the day is the Mother's Day Brunch at Sharks Underwater Grill. This exclusive dining experience offers a special 3-course menu that is sure to delight your taste buds. Each mom will receive a complimentary rose and a glass of champagne, making it the perfect way to start her day. This upscale, signature full-service restaurant also provides a fascinating view into the world of sharks, so let’s dive on in and see what this year’s specialty menu has to offer.

For the first course, you have a choice between two delectable options. The first is the classic Lobster Bisque, made with a rich and creamy broth, crème fraîche, and chunks of succulent lobster. The second option is the Strawberry Fields Salad, a perfect blend of spring mix salad tossed with a strawberry balsamic vinaigrette, topped with toasted walnuts, diced apples, strawberries, and goat cheese.

Moving on to the second course, Sharks Underwater Grill offers a variety of options that are sure to satisfy any craving. If you're a fan of seafood, the shrimp & grits is a great choice. The pan-seared Cajun garlic shrimp is served with creamy grits, smoked Gouda, and tomato gravy with red bell peppers and scallions. If you're in the mood for something savory, the chicken and waffles are a must-try. The buttermilk-fried chicken is paired with homemade cheddar waffles and bourbon maple syrup. If you're a fan of steak, the Filet Mignon is a chef-trimmed and cut tenderloin cooked to your specifications, topped with garlic herb compound butter, and served with smashed roasted parmesan potatoes and veg du jour sprinkled with pink Himalayan salt. And if you're looking for something lighter, the salmon piccata is a sustainable pan-seared salmon topped with a garlic, caper butter sauce, accompanied by smashed roasted parmesan potatoes and veg du jour sprinkled with pink Himalayan salt.

Finally, to finish off your meal, the third course features a decadent dessert option: the Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake. It's served with raspberry coulis and fresh whipped cream, making it the perfect way to end your meal on a sweet note.
