We have dined at this restaurant twice, and will be back again when we are in the area. It is a cute restaurant on Main Street in Buford. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. The food was very good...portions were very generous as we could not finish ours. The dip for the bread that they sell is amazing... More

This review is long overdue. I am an event planner for my company with some hard-to-please diners. We were staying at Lake Lanier and wanted to find a nice restaurant for an evening out. With being from out of town and going only on the recommendation of the resort and online reviews I took a chance. It paid off in... More

We were staying in Buford for the night and looked on TripAdvisor for places to eat dinner while here. Aqua Terra sounded interesting so we thought we would give it a try. We are so glad we did! The food was excellent and the servings plentiful-we could not eat it all nor did we have room for dessert unfortunately. The... More

The food was good, and the service was excellent. Fantastic martinis. I had the ribeye and scallops, which was very good. My wife had the barbecue shrimp, which she loved. The appetizer flatbread was the best! We couldn't finish it all (a lot of food). The only issue I had was the indication that the bottle of Silver Palm wine... More

Dined here with friends from church. We were in a separate space which was very intimate and perfect for us to fellowship. I had one of the specials, sirloin (I believe) with lobster mashed potatoes and green bean almodine. It was delicious and plenty of food (I have leftovers). Others at my table ordered the shrimp and grits special (the... More

I come here several times a year sometimes with clients and sometimes with family. I have never been disappointed as the service is impeccable and the chef is generally visible and the menu can change several times throughout the year. Most everything on the menu that I have tried has been fabyastic and they generally have a very good wine... More

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
