Went in for lunch as we had heard it was a great place. A bit taken aback by being seated at a butcher paper covered table that had crumbs on it from ?? So we just jumped to the booth in front of it. It, too, was crumby..? We stayed there and no one asked why we moved which I... More

This restaurant had only two tables occupied when we were there for lunch. So perhaps that is why the waitress bugged is so much. I was there with someone I hadn't seen in a few years and we wanted to talk. But this waitress, nice really, bit she stopped by our table every five minutes to check on us. It... More

I have never had anything bad from here! I go a lot for dinner and lunch. They change their menu but the choices are always great. You can't beat the martinis and the dipping sauce. We buy a jar of the sauce every so many months! It is a great place for a date night. The staff is always so... More

Maybe it's just that we were there during a odd time, but the food wasn't great and the environment was a little too stuffy. The bread and dipping sauce was awesome though.... which they limit how much of that you can have. This place was just not for us.

My husband and I ate there on a staycation after reviewing the local places. We're really glad we chose Aqua Terra! First, the location is adorable. Next, the food was fresh, the service was excellent, the price was reasonable for a good meal, and I was able to get a favorite wine of mine for $9 a glass. Totally worked... More

I was the one off by ordering the scallops while the rest went for shrimp and grits. I could go for the half order since I can count on my wife sharing her repast. The shrimp and grits while somewhat different from what was expected were excellent. This was the first time eating arugula salad which was quite tasty. While... More

There are several restaurants open now in Buford for lunch, but we find ourselves returning to Aqua Terre. The burger is just incredible and melts in your mouth. We love their fries. The beef tip sandwich is normally excellent, but was just OK today. We did try the sweet potato chips. The bread and dipping sauce is really good! Wine... More

Love this restaurant! The service is the best- friendly and very professional. The seasonal menu is creative and delicious. Fabulous martini menu. The ambiance and atmosphere in this old mill town Main Street location is perfect!

My wife only ate half her filet mignon dinner and had the rest boxed for her to take home. When we got home 15 minutes later, we realized we had left the box on the table. We called back immediately and were told it had been thrown away already. Why would they throw away something that a patron had obviously... More
