“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

For the price, I expected a much nicer atmosphere and better food. This place disappointed us.

“Great food, good place, slow service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2009

The food here is really, really good. This was my second trip here and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The first time I got the lobster mashed potatoes, make sure you ask for them! The service was really slow, as we went in during the afternoon and no one was there. I think they were prepping for the night rush, but I would have appreciated a little more attention. Overall, I have enjoyed myself there both times I've been and would recommend this to anyone dining in the Sandwich area. The view of the canal is nice, except there is a smoke stack located very close to them (obviously out of their control). Besides that, looking over the canal before sunset is very nice.

“Delicious waterfront Sandwich bistro - all kinds of great menu items”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2009

I recently met a group of friends there last Sunday and ordered a lot of appetizers to begin with before moving onto the entrees. Starting off we all ordered their $5 martinis which come in four flavors and are made with imported vodka. Very good! The Aqua Grille is very comfortable and friendly. We ordered Roadside Sliders - char griilled little burgers that everybody loved, 1/2 lb. of peel and eat shrimp dish (only $8) the "crispy calamari" which was crispy and delicious, but the mussels were my favorite. Someone else got the Buffalo Chicken wrap which looked wonderful and I split a half pound lobster roll with someone. This is one of the best restaurants on this part of the Cape for casual or special occasion dining on the waterfront.

“Best Bistro in Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

This is the first winter that the Aqua Grille has remained open, and we locals are thrilled! The bar and bistro atmosphere is friendly and cozy, the food is delicious and inexpensive, and you can't beat a $5 martini! The menu is scaled down from the normal summer menu, as is the seating, but the Grille is an excellent place for a hearty meal this winter, and the service is fast and friendly. One of the better places to dine on Cape Cod this winter.
