This local restaurant is known for its creative fish and seafood dishes. Additionally , they serve a comprehensive Sunday buffet consisting of omelettes, carved meats, seafood, and excellent baked goods. Service is excellent. We will continue to frequent this fine restaurant ,

“A Father's Day Brunch brought me back on a ffollowing Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Made a reservation for 5 adults and 4 children under 8 on Father's Day. We were well and comfortably seated at a ten top on the window. The food was plentiful in the style of brunch. My only complaint was that the OJ served was watery. Spent two much time with ice in it I suspect. Our server quickly replaced it. Service was good. All my dining experiences at Aqua Terra are enjoyable and I returned again for a regular Sunday Brunch service. I might add that Father's Day was in the $31.95 range ($199.95 I believe for children). The regular Sunday was $19.95 but the presentation on food was generally the same. What was missing was the Mimosas, etc. What I found surprising on the regular Sunday Brunch was that they only served Orange Juice or others for an additional charge. Since most originate in bulk or concentrate that struck me as a bit of unnecessary frugality. One would consider that an integral part of the brunch format. I have never seen that in any other restaurant/hotel I have had Brunch at.

“Great Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

My wife and I have become regulars at Aqua Terra over the last year and a half. We love the mixed atmosphere of the restaurant which lends itself to the variety of people we bring along with us. There is a dining room for a more formal setting, a casual dining area for those with kids looking for a more relaxed environment, a beautiful bar area with ample table and booth seating with wonderful open views to the outside and, of course, a large outside eating area to enjoy the nice weather. The appetizers are outstanding, the entrees always diverse and well presented and the desserts are large portions of delightful pleasure. The owners, Steve and Stacy, are a delight and their personality reflects on the personal touch of their dedicated staff. The friendliness of both owners and staff enriches our dining experience and is one of many reasons why we are repeat customers.

“Great Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We recently dined here for brunch. Food was outstanding. Lots of choices and constant replenishment. We sat outside which was very nice. Great value for the price. Staff was excellent. My only recommendation is to get there earlier. Buffet gets crowded after 1230. Will definitely return.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Ate here with friends from out of town. Service was amateur and slow. Food was bland and overcooked. Will not be returning any time soon. Looking at the frequently empty parking lot, many others are voting with their feet too.
