We took our nephew and his wife to Aqua Grill after picking them up from the JAX airport a week ago. They both commented that their meals were The Best they have had in a long time. We have eaten there a number of times...over the past couple of years, and Aqua Grill consistently delivers. Not only is their menu incredible, but the entire wait staff are outstanding and professional. The sauces that they offer on their entrees are amazing! We would recommend asking for extra sauce with every dish! Before our guests left town we asked them where they wanted to eat, and without hesitation they both said Aqua Grill. We highly recommend Aqua Grill.More

The food and service were just okay. I had the onion flounder and my boyfriend had the blacked grouper. Neither were great. The mussels were also just okay. The service wasn’t good either, but we could see at surrounding tables it appeared to be better....The best part was the bread and the ambiance.More

This is my 4th visit the service has always been very good as it was this evening. We spent over $200 only to find out the $25.00 coupon we were mailed doesn't work on Friday or Saturday, the font on the 8.1/2 by 5 post...card was barely legible and there is my complaint. Why would this establishment mail a 4 color post card with professional pics and design and not be upfront with the offer in large enough writing for people to make their own decisions. We were told by our server this is not the 14th or 21st time she has had to explain this to patrons who showed up expecting a small discount if they spent $75.00. This is not the way to do business and gain customers, hiding small print like a used car dealership. You shouldn't be afraid to stand by your reputation or food.More

We requested and were seated on their wonderful large porch that overlooks a small body of water. The tables are regularly disinfected and are arranged with adequate spacing between them in accordance with CDC guidelines. Kari wore a face mask and provided excellent service that...included providing descriptions and recommendations for selective dishes.She also personally prepared our red sangrias that were outstanding. All of the dishes ordered were delicious and well presented. Our meal was topped off by a birthday 🍰 dish of key lime pie that was fantastic. A great birthday lunch experience 😎More

It’s so difficult for restaurants to stay afloat during this pandemic. One restaurant that continues day after day to prepare exquisite meals and make customers feel special in the midst of this difficult period is Aqua Grill. They have been a mainstay in our town...for many years but when the Coronavirus hit, all restaurants in town closed with the exception for take out. Many restaurants just closed their doors—Aqua Grill through smart advertising and nightly specials created a great takeout business. Then once restaurants were opened at 60 percent occupancy, they continued both their take out and dine in business We recently dined there in honor of our daughter and son-in-laws recent wedding. Like so many other couples they were married in a very small outdoor ceremony which we were unable to attend because of the distance and the pandemic. This was the first time we had seen them as husband and wife. I mentioned to the manager at Aqua Grill the situation and she eagerly offered to make it special. All our dinners were superb—fresh fish prepared with delicate spices, sauces and fresh vegetables. The wine list was extensive and we opted for a very good but reasonably priced Pinot Noir. The bread just delivered from the oven was mouthwatering. And the wait staff was attentive yet inconspicuous. Just as were finishing our dinners the wait staff brought four glasses of bubbly on the house as well as a huge plate with two gorgeous desserts and the words Best Wishes scrolled across the top of the plate in chocolate Thank you Aqua Grill for making a memorable evening even more special. We will continue to patronize this special gem.More

Always suspicious of shopping center restaurants. Loved this place - great menu with daily specials. My wife had their shrimp/melon summer salad and loved it. Allison was great with recommendations. Even though I was stuffed from the seafood-farmer salad we went with her advice on...their Bananas Foster bread pudding. BEST bread pudding I’ve had in years. Definitely worth looking for! Sit outside for a view.More

Our son told us about the Aqua Grill in Ponta Vedra, Florida. We were spending a couple of days at Jacksonville, Florida and decided to try it. We were not disappointed. The food was great and our server, Kari, was very friendly and detailed concerning...items on the menu.More

Like most places in Florida tourist areas, there is no particular dress code. We did not feel out of place wearing decent looking shorts and tops.
