ChoiceThe food was excellent except for one appetizer out of five. It was a single tiny oyster. One oyster? I complained; they took it off the bill and gave me the complementary dessert of my choice. That was more than generous. They listened...5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining choice!In a small town with a handfull of good restaurants Aqua continues to rise to the top of the list of favorite places to dine. Kim and her staff are always top shelf and the food is phenominal. The challenge I usually have is which menu item to select. Fortunately, since they not only offer the larger plates for those hearty appetites, they also offer small plates as well as delicious tapas so you can sample several different menu items. If you find yourself in Beaufort and are looking for a satisfying dining experience, head to Aqua Restaurant. If you are feeling adventurous, ask for their Ginger Martini.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMloved the small plates esploved the small plates esp the duck. husband loved his chicken w/ delicious collards. staff very attentive. enjoyed aqua decor and sitting on screened patio. whenever we visit Beaufort our trip not complete unless we dine here!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingEvery aspect of dining at Aqua was superb.
