We had a party of 12. The table was ready when we arrived in a nice spot tucked away. Kelly was our waitress and she did a fabulous job. She was very helpful and extremely attentive. She handled our large party on her own. The food was fantastic as always. Would highly recommend as a good spot for large groups. Will be back soon. Thank you AG!

Although are seating area was not the most desirable location, it was due to a major event that seating areas where limited. The host and server made our experience wonderful. The food was fantastic and worth every penny.

As I’ve always felt, Aqua Grill is just ok. Food is pretty good, service and ambience is good. My complaint relates to small portion, especially on seafood dishes. My husband was hungry after his meal, even with soup starter. Prices seem a bit high, value just ok.

It was very loud. We were a table for two between two large parties, which did not help. We made the best of it and we did enjoy our evening. Our server Marie was excellent.

Lovely as always. Pumpkin was great. My friends salad was good but had an issue but they resolved it. I got the Shrimp n Grits, a little runny and rich for my taste but it was good. I love the Pad Thai, wish they had it on the menu regularly. I have always had good food and good service. One of my favorite place to go, rain or shine, the patio is lovely. It was breezy this week. Extra nice.

3 of 4 meals were disappointing. In addition one of the meals made one diner not feel well. On a more positive note our server was great. Atmosphere and noise level were great for conversation. Cocktails left a lot to be desired.

This is our second time here and we were not disappointed. We tried to eat outside but the midges were a bit much. Out waiter moved us inside quickly with a smile. I cannot say enough about the outstanding service. we had some "difficult" orders that she had no problem handling. The food was terrific and we look forward to our next visit.

We came here for our last night of a golf trip to Ponte Vedra, and it was a great way to finish our trip. They were quite busy and we were a party of 8, so service was a bit spotty at times, but the food and wine were great. I had a trigger fish special that was wonderful and all others seemed quite pleased with their meals. Recommended.

Great service, our waitress was very nice. My husband’s Trigger Fish, which was the special of the day, was overcooked and priced too high for the size and quality at $34. My salmon was perfectly cooked and enjoyed it for $26.

Absolutely delicious food! Everything we ordered was freshly prepared, cooked to perfection and well seasoned. We had the shrimp appetizer, the chicken piccata and the pan seared grouper. Our server was attentive but did not hover. Highly recommend.

The food was incredible. The best fried green tomatoes ever! My tuna appetizer was the best tuna I can recall ever having....will be back for sure, well done. Our waitress was excellent as well. The bartender though had a bit of an attitude and only became friendly when we were checking out hoping for a nice tip.....

We thought this was going to be a more upscale experience. The food was very good and outside ambience was very nice, but we felt rushed even though there were plenty of empty tables. It's as if we were in a sports bar. We didn't feel like we could enjoy our cocktail on our own terms. Wait staff was not very accommodating or knowledgable about substitutions and dietary issues. If we go there again, we'd go to the bar first, enjoy our drinks, then get table.

I had not been here for a long time. Took some friends and they loved it. There were 4 of us and we all ordered four different dishes. Everything was excellent. Service was excellent and in the end the prices were extremely reasonable. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend and also a very nice place to take out-of-towners. Their menu has something for everyone and parking is reasonably easy. All in all this restaurant was excellent and will be on my list of a place to take my out of town friends and family.
