Wonderful place for lunch in old downtown Buford, Ga. The crab cake sandwiches were excellent. You need to try the calamari. We had two different sides, French Fries and potato salad and they were both good. Yes it is a bite of I-85 but you will love it. Excellent service and friendly staff.

We went here as a team of 10 while at a conference at Lake Lanier. The service was really great ($600 bill so the 20% was included and I still added to the tip). I think all of us thought the food was just okay but the drinks were wonderful... (maybe we needed them). I had been bragging that this... More

Had lunch today at Aqua Terra and we were impressed. The lunch menu is more comparable to chains such as Applebee's but there is no comparison with respect to the food. I had a large Country French Salad (Mixed field greens, Gorgonzola cheese, bacon, apples, walnuts, and red onions with a warm apple cider vinaigrette). I added the shrimp which... More

This place was awesome! From the service to the food. If I'm ever back in the area I will certainly stop by again. Their menu changes every few weeks (which I think is cool) and the relaxed setting was a perfect place to have a nice dinner.

We had a going away party for a par friend at this restaurant. From the reservations to the service, everything was excellent. We had a private room to ourselves which was nice because our group was loud. I highly recommend the scallops in truffle sauce. It was delicious!

We've been going to Aqua Terra since it first opened. My husband and I stopped by for lunch, checked out the dinner menu and returned later that week. That has been over 12 years ago, I think. The menu changes constantly and it's always wonderful. I've never had a bad dish there. We've taken friends there and it is one... More

Hubby and I were here for an anniversary dinner. I had one of the specials with a chicken breast over linguine with pancetta in the sauce that made the whole thing melt in your mouth. This particular Saturday night there was no wait, which was very unusual. Turns out UGA had a home football game and everybody was in Athens... More
