Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is lovely and the view of the Savannah river front is beautiful. The food is very good and the service is also. The food came out a little slow and they comped our martinis even though we didn't complain about the wait nor ask for compensation."

  • "Both appetizers very good. Shrimp dish not what either of us who ordered it imagined.Description misleading. Presentation was a hodge-podge of toppings over grilled shrimp on a bed of yams. Okay, but nothing I would have knowingly ordered. Short rib choice excellent. Creme brulet excellent. Other dessert, a berry & ice cream offering was, again, poorly described on the menu & not the "light" choice imagined - almond brittle cover over melted ice cream with a meager portion of warm berries. Sir Michael left big shoes to fill. Encourage current chef to create special but not "weird" offerings & make descriptions more understandable. FYI, I dine out often & am an excellent gourmate cook, & consider my food knowledge well above average."

  • "The Jazz Brunch is the traditional brunch with both a full breakfast ( omelet bar ) and lunch ( steaks and pasta bar ) and very nice desserts. Dining room is very open with no crowding and the Jazz Group were a great addition."

  • "They substituted spaghetti for my angel hair without telling me. Gave me my entree before my salad and soup. Did not have a wine list for me until I asked about wine. Asked for a lemon several times. Bus girl finally went to get me one."

  • "Nice view of Savannah River with ships going past. The corn chowder was delicious, as was the house bread served with the meal. Whole grain, moist, tasty, not dry like many whole grain breads."

  • "I found this spot online when I was planning a trip down. I love jazz & thought this would be a nice compliment to my dining experience. Added the free ferry ride for a bonus. It was an absolutely lovely day. Food was fabulous !!! Nice atmosphere !! Highly Recommend."

  • "Although we have had dinner here before, this is our first brunch experience at Aqua Star. Unfortunately, while service is supposed to begin at 11:30, staff was nowhere near ready at that time. Our 11:45 reservation was honored 15 minutes later. Fortunately, it was worth the wait. I have never seen such a wide variety of food offered at brunch, and our group thoroughly enjoyed it. The jazz ensemble added a nice, unobtrusive touch which did not interfere with conversation. Bread choices were somewhat limited, and I would have liked to have seen a wider array of fruit. But everything we ate was well-prepared and tasty."

  • "Sea bass is one of my favorite fish to splurg on for a special occasion. My seabass that night was not fresh. For $38 I expect fresh seabass. The menu stated that parmesan risotto came with the entree and it didn't come out that way and then she brought me a side of risotto that was thick and gummy. This restaurant was nice inside but it didn't have the polish or service that i expected it to have for the price. i would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "You'd get better service at a McDonalds or Wendys but this is pretty much the only restaurant on the island. So if you're hungry, plan ahead to take the ferry to River Street. From sitting down to getting our food the wait was 50 minutes (I know because my husband had to leave before eating his lunch). The waitresses are just lazy - they don't make eye contact so you end up having to walk up to them or yell as they walk by - which we did after being ignored 3 times. We were finally able to ask the waitress for waters and that took 20 minutes. There was also lipstick on my grandfathers water glass and our medium hamburger came back rare. All points that the waitress argued with us over."

  • "Highly recommend Aqua Star. Food top notch and high quality. Our server, Nelly, was probably the best service I have ever had. Friendly, knowledgable & professional. Romantic locale, with a primo view of the river! 5 stars-go and be amazed"

  • "I discovered that this brunch was rated #1 in Savannah according to the Visitors and Convention Bureau. Everything was excellent - food, table location, service, ambience and I would definitely go again. However, I printed out the page from the website that rated the brunch #1 and the price was $39.95. When we received the bill, the price was $42.00 so I politely asked our server who was great about it. She said she would send the Manager over. The Manager came and I politely informed her that it was not that I couldn't pay the $42 but that the price was $39.95 and I gave her the printout. She stated the $42 was incorrect and although she was professional, she did nothing to explain the difference besides the current price being correct."

  • "The noted knighted chef has departed, and the food service was very slow. The restaurant has always been consistent, and I hope that the new chef will continue to keep the menu creative."

  • "Restaurant had received great reviews and so we decided to try it on a Sunday night while in Savannah. To make a reservation, the restaurant had required a credit card number--so we expected a sold out venue; instead we were one of only 4 tables at Aqua Star. Our waitress was wonderful--excellent service and the She Crab soup was outstanding. The main course was a disappointment; I wanted to try the "house special, winner of xyz awards"; sorry about my luck--a large wedding party the night before apparently ate all the scallops in Southern Georgia! Instead I had the sword fish, which was greasy (not grilled) and my wife had the grouper, which was over cooked. Very disappointing."

  • "I have visited savannah twice and have eaten Sunday brunch here both times! It has always been well worth the exorbitant prices. I will say come hungry!! There are many options and you will want to eat your money's worth! Personally I like the French toast best. I have two reason for knocking it down to 4 stars. I have had a better brunch elsewhere. This one covers all the bases and is very standard and what you would expect. The one I enjoy more is a little more eclectic and a different more foodie brunch. Secondly both times I have been seated within 10 feet of the live jazz music making is a little hard to converse. Don't get me wrong I love the music, I would just like to sit a little further away. Overall a must visit!"

  • "It was wonderful trying all new foods (meats, cheeses, desserts) for brunch - I do wish some of the smaller items had labels like the main dishes so I knew what it was that I was trying!"

  • "Went to see Jeremy Davis and the Equinox. The band was great and also had dinner there. I did not know until we arrived that it a 3 course dinner at 35.00 with only the selection listed no other offers or options. The salad was served timely with as much bread you wanted, which was good, because the main course was very slow coming out. I did not time it but I would say it was at least 40 min to an hour. It had listed Spinach but received roasted vegetables. The steak and shrimp was delicious and so was the dessert. The waitress was very attentive. I will go again."

  • "The food was outstanding and I would highly recommend especially for a special occasion. The service was very slow and the hostess was not friendly at all. When we arrived for our reservation at 12:00 noon, she said they were still seating folks from 11:30 a.m. Then 5 minutes later she said they would start the 12 noon and we had to go back up and go through the whole thing again...that is not first class at all. There also did not seem to be enough servers to clear the tables...we would get up for another plate and our dirty plates would still be at the table...in restaurants with impeccable service that would not happen."

  • "The menu on-line is not the menu at the restaurant. And there are items on the menu at the restaurant that are no longer available. The website shows linen table cloths but there really are none. The food was way too salty. I chose this restaurant based on their website. However, the bourbon blackened rub strip steak is not on the actual menu neither is the New York cheesecake and the cheese plate is no longer available. I wanted an elegant environment. I like linen table cloths. We ate on plain wooden tables. The spinach dip was like licking a salt block. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked but topped with cream from the same salt block. The praline cheesecake was just ok. People at the next table complained about the salty food too."

  • "I've been on numerous Sundays and holidays brunch. Nothing special about this Mother's Day. For the waffles usely strawberries wip cream nope not for mothers just syrup. Christmas prime rib not for mothers ham. Then banana fosters they dip out of a container and the bananas are mush and the syrup is now gravy and not hot. I wish they would of treated my mom like a queen been better of going to Waffle House. Jesse"

  • "Party of 4, food was excellent. My choice, filet and the others in my party enjoyed the seafood and one breakfast diner. I've never had a bad experience on Sunday brunches whether for a holiday or just a Sunday. I'm allergic to all fish and seafood and can dine without worry here. It was crowded but they handled it well. I just need to remember to reserve a window or bottom floor seat as the stairs were difficult for my parents. "

  • "Food and Drinks were amazing, there was everything you can imagine from oysters to rack of lamb, three stations with freshly fried stuff and a huge dessert buffet with tartes, cakes and small dishes like strawberries in chocolate. All drinks included, price was $65 in May 2014 (mothers day)"

  • "Mothers day Brunch: Food was very good but not exceptional. Service was really not very good at all. Couldn't get drink refills. Couldn't get silverware replacements. The busing staff was more helpful than the wait staff. AT $130 for two, I expected a lot more. "

    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Fair food - about what you would expect for a resort. The wait staff was competent and friendly but the overall service level was terrible due to slow preparation and likely understaffing. It took 2 1/2 hours to get an appetizer and the entree. It's a problem with all the food service at this property. The following day it took 1 1/4 hours to get a hamburger and we mentioned that we were in a hurry when we ordered. The wait staff was very appologetic and is obviously frustrated by the system. Nice hotel, but take the ferry over to Savannah to eat."

  • "I love to eat here because every food has such an excellent taste. The vast array is like a treasure chest of flavor, textures and surprises. I was married to a chef so I learned to appreciate the knowledge and passion it takes to put on this kind of meal. I love that there is no hurry so I have time to pick and choose and actually savor the tastes that are available. While I appreciate some types of jazz, I noticed that the band played a lot of fast paced music. This made the whole 'take your time thing' kind of conflicting. I know in stores they play music fast to get you to shop and leave or slow to browse and shop. A slower pace of music would make the experience more relaxing in my opinion."

  • "After reading reviews I was excited to go! The view of historic Savannah across the river was beautiful but the food here was horrible! Had a salad and the scallop entree.......salad wasn't anything special and the scallops were extremely over cooked! Didn't even finish my meal because it wasn't enjoyable."

  • "When we were seated we were told that they were only offering their "limited menu ". Some mumbled explanation re deliveries or quiet night in the hotel. Our food choices are restricted (vegetarian and non-shellfish). So we ordered a drink and a Caesar salad and left. The waiter should have offered to find something for us-there's a casual restaurant in the hotel which we went to after our "dinner" and had a good sandwich, good waiter. Aqua missed an orotundity to shine."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at the Aqua Star...memorable music from Jeremy Davis and his orchestra. Super fun night! The food was very good as well, although our server's ability to obtain drinks from the bar was slightly impaired. She seemed spread out between tables, making it complicated for her. Great location, beautiful view of Savannah and the sunset, and a beautiful restaurant all combined for a lovely evening. We will be doing this again!"
