My foursome (three brothers and a best friend) arrived hungry from traveling the first day at 11:30 pm on our five day trip to play Tpc Sawgrass. Chelsie informed us that the kitchen was closed but totally understood our situation. She raided the kitchen, heated wheat bread loaves, sliced tomatos and cheese, brought hummus and crackers what ever she could to satisfy our hunger. She also introduced us to a "Baby Guinness" which she promised would take the edge off our long day of traveling (she was so right). She bragged that Aqua Grill had the best seafood and we promised to return for dinner on our last night. We ended up returning 3 of the 4 nights visiting the bar each night and dining in the resturant the last. Besides the awesome golf locate litterally across the street (in fact walking distance- you can ask my younger brother he had to one night) finding Aqua Grill and it's magic bar was truly the highlight of our trip. We became part of the family which included Ron, Mary, Alissa, Terra and of course Debbie and Tony. Where I come from, South Louisiana, we hug our family and friends and it was soo fun to see how our new friends started leaning into the big hugs we had for them.
So in short our experience at Aqua Grill was not just about the fantastic food we ate but it was about how the staff from the manager, owner,bar staff and locals made us feel. We can not wait to reschedule our trip next year or sooner!

Liked the staff, nice, fun and engaging. Food was fine but considering we asked our hotel for the best restaurant around, this was not what I would consider a high end restaurant. However, if you go, get a bottle of the Carnival of Love Shiraz, great value!

We have been here twice while house hunting. Both times the food has been outstanding. It's nice to be able to go to a place that has vegetarian selections as well as well as many great choices for the meat eaters. Fish is always fresh and cooked perfectly
The ambiance is comfortable, the staff attentive and the bar area fun and friendly.
I'm looking forward to moving down to make this our to go place. All around a great place!

I used to eat there often, but the last two visits where very disappointing. The menu is well balanced but it seemed to me that the chef has changed as the food is not up to snuff. Good portions, service is acceptable but skow but lacks the flavor ut once had.

A nice place to go for ambiance and good seafood. The grouper is amazing. The osso boco is also very good there. Their wine flights, whether you get red or white is worth ordering. In the spring you can have tapas on the patio and listen to jazz music.
