Aqua Grill is a local favorite for fresh seafood casual dining. The new building (in the same location) is well appointed and the deck is screened with a fire pit and great ambiance. The grilled swordfish is excellent and I can also recommend the Eggplant Parmesan.

Their happy hour is not very happy. You are only allowed to be in the bar or a couple tables right outside the bar for drink specials or bar food. It ends early. The El Presidente chicken wings are excellent 9 out of 10 times. The rest of the bar food is mostly expensive for what you get. Usually visit... More

This place got a total makeover. It was a worn out 80's restaurant with a decent menu but nothing to rave about. NOW it is bneautiful and the ambiance is great. We had an intimate dinner while seated next to a corporate gathering. The crowd was separated from us by a glass wall. We had no noise and traffic .... More

We planned our drive down to Florida specifically to arrive at Aqua Grill in time for a nice early dinner as our previous visit, had us looking forward to returning. A pleasant surprise to find they built a new restaurant, which is very tastefully done. We went to the bar, ordered some drinks and the coconut shrimp appetizer - which... More

We spent one night in Ponte Vedra on the way back from a Christmas Cruise. So glad that I had chosen Aqua Grill for our dinner. When I got off of the ship that morning, I had a voicemail from the manager asking us to come in 15 minutes later than our original reservation. I was a little taken aback... More

Aqua Grill has been a great place in Ponte Vedra for years, but they have recently become even better. They did a complete re-build of the restaurant, now with a great deck overlooking a lake. They have some form of happy hour drinks 7 nights a week, and also great happy hour snackie type foods up until about 6 or... More

After the facelift and with competition arriving all around, Aqua Grill still serves great food with attentive and not overbearing service. Ask for a seat out in the deck in the early evening and enjoy a drink with the ocean breeze.

Thank Frkris
