We stopped in for a couple glasses of wine while shopping. We were immediately seated and given menus. Our order was taken and our wine delivered very quickly. It's a very nice bar area with great service. I would go hear again when visiting Beaufort.

Four of us on a beach vacation sampled Aqua, thanks to other reviews on Trip Advisor. We were impressed with the prompt, informed service (the wait staff knew the dishes in detail, so recommended well), and most of all, with the food. Our dishes ranged from a seafood stew to a crab cake to the snapper special catch to a fancy chicken special. And don't let me neglect to mention the fried green tomato small plate, which we all shared. All yummy, temptingly presented.
We were too full for dessert. I had an NC craft ale, while a friend enjoyed a special martini.

The decor includes copies of art works (Miro was above our booth), soft lighting, and a variety of aqua (of course) lamps and fixtures. Everything is conducive to a special experience. Tucked away a block from the water, with appealing outdoor seating, this is a lovely choice for dining. Make a reservation, because Aqua is very popular!

We were visiting friends who took us to Aqua for wineorama. We had a great wine tasting and divine cheese platter along with other delicious food. Aqua has small plates for those of us who don't want to over indulge. All of athe food we had was delicious and the service was good especially considering how popular the restaurant was that night. I highly recommend it.

Wow. So many great choices in Beaufort. We started with salads....Caesar, mixed green and watermelon...oh and the pommes frites with aioli yum. Dinner: petite filet, crab cakes and cioppino...oh so good. Skipped dessert but would be surprised if it didn't meet the high standard of the rest of our meal.

Make a reservation!

Great tapas/small plates, atmosphere, and staff! We started with the tomato pie which was perfect...we also had the red snapper special, crab cakes, and shrimp with lentils. Perfect amount for 2! All delicious!
