The restaurant is a really neat place especially when you have three young sons. The boys really thought it was neat. The food was pretty good and the wait staff was very good. Major bonus that it is connected to the Bass Pro Shop.

You can get gift cards online. Google Bass Pro Shop gift cards. They have ones that can be purchased and sent via email or plastic cards that can be purchased as well. Best of luck!

Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill features a truly unique atmosphere and design geared for family fun and dining. Casual family dining is available in the Grill where you can select from a menu featuring a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads and burgers. A private room is available and is the perfect spot for a private lunch or dinner, seminar or even a fun birthday party. An island-theme bar area, offers visitors the experience of feeling like they are underwater exploring the skeletal remains of a sunken ship. Looking up, visitors can see the battered, barnacle and coral-encrusted wooden hull, an old rusted iron chain and the iron rail around the bow. A host of exotic fish swim in and around the wreck while Dorado and sharks, suspended from the ceiling, appear to swim overhead. The bar features a huge saltwater aquarium with scores of beautiful, tropical fish. It is elevated to provide views of the bowling action while serving up your favorite refreshment.
