We went here for a birthday dinner. Food and service were both great but food portions were miniscule. The mahi was $21 and it was a 2x4 inch piece of fish. Same with the filet.

My husband and I were in town for the weekend, and heard that Aqua was the place to eat. We did not have a reservation, but the lovely, very efficient hostess worked her magic. Our entire meal was one of the best we've ever had. From the tomato tart and shrimp and grits tapas, to my fresh catch small plate (snapper), simply outstanding. Ambience was great, service excellent. We had a bottle of wine with dinner, and finished with the desert sampler. We will be back next time we are in town. Put this on your places to dine at, you won't be disappointed!

I had the gazpacho to start and my main course was the grouper. Gazpacho was tangy, spicy, excellent. Thew grouper was moist, just right. Server Dan entertained us at the bar. Undoubtedly the best restaurant in Beaufort.

The kitchen at Aqua know what it's doing. Eight of us dined there recently as we do every year at the beach and we weren't disappointed. First, they make a great Bloody Mary. All the menu items hit the mark. Order what you like and you wn't be disappointed.

Ate at Aqua this week and we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We started with a somewhat spicy gazpacho which was enjoyed by all. The scallop special was very good and i was told the rack of lamb was excellent and a bigger portion than was expected. We had a Jersey waiter who was attentive but not intrusive. i thought the pricing was reasonable and many options were available such as tapas, and small and big plates.
