An "old staple" of the area Aqua Grill can be relied upon for good quality food in a variety of offerings all the time. Many regulars enjoy the view and especially the seafood. This restaurant is consistent and because of that has been in the neighborhood for about 20 years. Cary Hart, the owner, moves with the times and changes... More

Not only was the service over the top but so was the food!!! All was cooked to perfection so I must mention Chef too! Key Lime Pie for desert was delicious. Thank you for a... More

Fantastic start to a trip to Ponte Vedra. Went there straight from the airport with 2 cranky young children for a late dinner. Staff couldn't have been nicer (and smart enough to seat us away from the crowds) and the food was excellent. Thanks to the engaging staff, by the end of the meal the kids were all smiles and...

The outside of the restaurant is going under renovations and even though we've been there before, we didn't see it at first with fences around everywhere. Has indoor and outside seating with booths and tables on the inside and a nice ambiance with fish tanks in one area of the restaurant. The menu is quite varied and lots to choose... More

I've been to Aqua Grill a few times and it never disappoints. The food and atmosphere are consistent as is the service. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting or living in the area. The surrounding area of the restaurant is under construction at the moment. Don't let it deter you from a visit, there is ample parking and... More

We go to Ponte Veda every year and this has become a staple of our visit. The food is great. The service is consistent. If you have a big party you usually get put in the back room which can get a bit loud if it is full.

Our weekend houseguest wanted to treat us to dinner “somewhere special” to show her appreciation... so, naturally, we went to the Aqua Grill in Sawgrass Village. In anticipation of the move to their new building next door in a couple of months, Executive Chef Mike Thomashunis has been tweaking his menus and offering some intriguing “Chef's Nightly Seafood Specials” –...

The Aqua Grill always strives to make certain their clientele is happy and they always succeed in my case! The last dish I had there was the trigger fish. The preparation was one of the best I've ever had and the sauce was delectable!
