Aqua Restaurant and Spa - Duck, NC
Agree with many others that Agua food pricing is on the high side, but I’m willing to pay extra for great food and service. Free parking on their lot. Nice water views. Entertainment some nights, one man band, outside seating area.
Great experience and a beautiful ocean view!
Family celebration of beach week. Food was outstanding! Service was enthusiastic, helpful, and witty. Beautiful view of the sunset. A perfect evening. Best meal of the week.
Our Waitress, Olena, made our anniversary feel special - thanks
Great food and great service. Table had a wonderful view of the water. A little pricey, but worth it.
The food and service were both outstanding. Aqua is one of the best restaurants in Duck.
Aqua was wonderful. A great meal with a wonderful view of the sound. Our server was wonderful as well.
This was our first time at Aqua, we all loved it and plan on making it a regular spot for dining.
Mini vacation at the beach without the kids. Date night for us. Love this restaurant as service is great and food is wonderful.
Out of four meals our group had, the only food worth eating was the bread and french fries. They need to go to Charleston, SC to learn how to fix the Shrimp and Grits, the corn chowder was "terrible" it was like eating watered down cream, no corn or crab in the soup. The Caesar salads we just so so. The duck was dry and tough. The Rock fish was overcooked and had to send it back for another. We have dined at almost all the restaurants in Duck and Corolla over the past few years and this is one I would not recommend and do not waste your money. The meal was certainly not worth the price of the food.
They also tried to push our salads on us twice before bringing the appetizers. It should be the other way around.
We ordered the salmon entree and the chef prepared it exactly as requested.
Excellent food and service. Our family very much enjoyed the Aqua restaurant.
Ate on the deck and watched the sunset. Mahi special was excellent. Our server was friendly-great evening
Duck is lucky to have Aqua. . .delicious food, beautiful sound front views. *Lobster Mac ‘n cheese is wonderful.
Excellent food and service!!
Very good food and service!
A nice way to end our vacation.
Will definitely be back for dinner when we return to Duck.
Great location in Duck with great view of the Sound. Food and service were excellent!
Excellent as always. Fresh cobia special was particularly good.
We had a wonderful evening at Aqua. My wife had the duck and I had the cobra. Both were prepared to our liking and tasted great. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. We would return again if we are in the area.
Everything was absolutely amazing! And I loved that my entire meal was gluten free!
Nice view, drink were small for the price and we are from the N.Y. area.
Wonderful restaurant on the water. Great views of the Currituck Sound. The staff was friendly, attentive and accommodating. I highly recommend timing your visit around sunset. The views are amazing. Great bar area and plenty of outdoor seating as well.
We are regulars at Aqua, which met it’s usual standard of excellence
Menu in restaurant did not match online version.
Not bad but not as good as my past dining experiences in this restaurant. Portions were smaller. Very VERY loud groups; couldn’t hear fellow guests, had to shout.
Had a great time, great spot for a romantic sunset date..
Highly recommend. Sat outside and got a beautiful sunset view.
Food was exquisite! Mark up on wine is high! 100% on inexpensive $20.00. Suggest bigger variety!
This was our second visit to
Aqua. We were not disappointed either time.
Staff, food and ambiance was superior.
Defiantly on list for our next visit.
Disappointed with limited menu selections and our waitress
Great view and great food. I had the fresh catch which was Mahi. It was really fresh and delicious. Had the cinnamon bread pudding for dessert and it was great also.
The food was not as good as I remember. I was at the restaurant about four years ago and noticed a big difference. I ordered the salmon and the waitress said the chef recommends it medium to medium well. Salmon is never cooked medium well so I believe she meant medium rare. Regardless it was over cooked. The cheese cake was dry not creamy. The best thing they have going for them is the location and the view.
Excellent atmosphere and wait staff. The food was very good. My cocktail was quite potent. The vodka content was very generouss! For me, the taste was more alcohol then blend. That might appeal to other folks but I added sour mix, graciously provided by the bar. The food was great although for the corn and crab soup was heavy on the corn flavor and very sweet. May just be my personal taste. The addition of ground black pepper was helpful. The bread was hot, crusty and delicious. Both of our main courses were excellent. We did not order desert.
The menu online looked delicious so I made a reservation weeks in advance of arriving in the Outer Banks.
My request to have a view of the sunset was noted and the restaurant was happy to honor that request. The waitress was efficient and very pleasant. She was excellent at describing the various dishes so that I
ordered what I would enjoy. The food ordered at my table was delicious; my shrimp/pasta entree arrived very hot in an attractive black, ceramic bowl. There was a nice selection of homemade ice creams and sorbets in addition to other desserts. This restaurant is one that I would highly recommend when visiting the area.
Mother’s Day dining for two brothers with their wives
Wonderful place and food
My server was very attentive and excellent.
The flavors were great on my beet salad, soup and entree. My chicken was cooked perfectly - not overdone and dry at all. My only complaint is that both my soup and entree were honestly quite overly garnished with some sort of clover-type plant. There was so much I had to take huge clumps off to get to my food. It was just overdone. 1/3 of the amount used would have been sufficient.
I would absolutely return and would recommend to friends and family and business associates.
Birthday for my wife. The staff did great job.
It was amazing! The food was fantastic and the server was the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of dining with. Loved the unexpected live music that was just the right noise level and ambiance for indoor seating. We had requested outdoor seating that could not be accommodated due to wind conditions, but we were given a window seat that provided the perfect view of the sunset we hoped.
Best meal we have had at Aqua for several years
