“Extensive menu, great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

After a day of visiting the Cape, we decided to stop for a lite late meal. It was a perfect choice. The menu includes both full course dinners and lighter fare such as sandwiches and small plates. The service was outstanding, and our mussels were great. Properly steamed in a very tasty brooth, they were the perfect ending to a great day. We would certainly try more substantial items on our return trip, including the Octoberfst menu prepared by the German chef. The same owners that run the Paddock in Hyannis manage this fine restaurant.

“Where should I start...Server approached...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2010

Where should I start...Server approached table as very apathetic, was very unhelpful, and extremely rude in even taking our order. She continued to be short and snippy in taking our appetizer order, and brought us out an appetizer that we didn't even order, and then argued with us that we ordered it!?!?! She
never refilled our waters at the
table, nor did she come back to the table to check on us after appetizers were served, salads were served nor when the entrees were
served. The food was POOR at best! She was uncaring, lazy & miserable, and then had the audacity to add an 18% gratuity to
our check!!!! BEWARE!!! For the food, service, & atmosphere your better off going to a Sub Shop!!!

“Staff super nice, too bad the food was disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

Very nice staff and a pretty view of the boats coming in. Sit down service was great. Unfortunately, the lobster bisque (very nice bartender told us how good this was) was at best OK, if you weren't comparing it to the amazing bisque we kept having next door. The stuffed Clams were all bread. We decided this wasn't likely to get better, so we finished our dinner plans at the place next door. We ended up eating there 3 times. That review is next!! Sam's is the oposite - Poor atmosphere, awesome food. If they could just combine somehow.

“Cape Cod at its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2010

We went to Aqua Grille at sunset. We were treated to a spectacular view and delicious food. Our waitress was funny and provided excellent service. We had been told to order something with lobster and were pleased that we did. Both the lobster salad and lobster roll had 1/2 pound of large chunks of lobster. The mussels were delicious. The price was reasonable considering the quality of the food. It's our understanding that this place is very, very busy during the summer months, but we were there in early May and had no problems getting seated right away. This was one of my favorite evenings on Cape Cod.

“I'm a year round resident. I eat here every chance I get!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2010

Run don't walk! Consistently delicious, reasonably priced food. My first dinner of 2010 was early last Thursday evening. I ordered a yummy iced coffee, which the waitress was happy to prepare specially. It was a little early in the season to find the ice coffee pre-made. The piping hot bread with it's crunchy crust and slightly spicy dipping oil, clam chowder appetizer, Caesar salad, and entree of mashed potato encrusted cod with lobster Newburg sauce accompanied by fresh asparagus, (cooked al dente) was nothing short of perfection. The price...$15.95 and the portion...well suffice to say I enjoyed a sizeable piece of fish at lunch yesterday. The waitress was cheerful and professional and the restaurant was immaculate!
