Just enjoying a great day at the Beach. Live music playing, nice drinks, and pretty good food (pork sliders, Calamari)

We did not eat here because we were at a private at a birthday party. However, the bartenders were great and when we first arrived and the location is really great. Would recommend for afternoon drinks after a day at the beach.

This was a great spot right on the beach/boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ. The beach is very clean, cute and busy but not mobbed. Aqua hit the spot for a quick drink and a no-fuss lunch - - nothing fancy but perfectly adequate if you want to eat on the beach while wearing your bathing suit. The view cannot be... More

We went here for afternoon drinks and bites. I got a turkey wrap and it was huge; good price too. Seafood apps easily cost 50% more than the wraps. Our waitress was very nice & friendly. I really would like to see sliders on the menu and better beer selection, but food and service were very good and the view... More

Food is similar to TV dinners :( Drinks very pricey and bad. The back bar filthy. Bartender social skills -10...they need to be more friendly. The view is great and the location in a land mark with lots of history. Dont eat there or drink. Go to the other bar "Beach Bar" on the other side of the building.

We went to Aqua in AP for dinner & drinks the other night! Great food & the staff really made us feel at home with the friendly service & not typical Jersey attitudes I've found in other places. Great recommendation for others to check it out. What a view and the ocean breezes kept us comfy in the warm summer... More

You enter the renowned City of Asbury Park Convention Hall arcade on the boardwalk, off Sunset Avenue, and there it is....AQUA. You walk up the ramp and take a seat at a table or at the bar. No matter where you look it's there, the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful, Asbury Park beach. Quickly you are greeted by your server... More
