We enjoyed a nice lunch with a relaxed but professional service. Although the area has potential to be posh, the atmosphere was welcoming. We liked the little chat with our service and everyone ate enthusiastically. I can really recommend this restaurant and the area!

My sister and I went here for her birthday on a trip to Cape Charles. The place is beautiful and has a wonderful view. The service was very slow, but the food was wonderful. We had the oysters rockafellar and thai style shrimp for an starters and it they were both wonderful. For dinner I had the bbq style shrimp with grits. The bbq sauce was great, but the grits were my favorite part. My sister had the organic scottish salmon with rice. She said the salmon was wonderful and cooked perfectly, but the rice did not have a lot of flavor.

The restaurant has a great view. You can sit outside on the deck or inside with it's all glass rear and watch the boats. It's a nice experience.
The food is good, not amazing, but good and the staff is friendly. It's a nice place to have a quiet lunch and take in the scenery.
I had the soup of the day, a crap and lobster bisque, which was tasty. The crab cake sandwich was a lunch special and came with a lemony salad on the side.
My husband and mother in law both had some steamed local clams and the fish tacos. Everything was nice and everyone was happy.
We'll come back.

My husband and I were very lucky when we decided to stop for lunch on our way home from Delaware. Thanks to tripadvisor we selected this wonderful gem on the Chesapeake Bay. Great food, excellent staff and a killer view. We will be back soon!

A combination of GREAT local oysters, beautiful views, and an attentive staff make Aqua a worthwhile destination. The local oysters and clams, harvested directly from the area surrounding Cape Charles, were some of the best we have ever tasted. Sweet with a hint of brine, these beauties rival any oyster selection from the Prince Edward Islands OR the Oregon coast.

Mike, our premier wait staff, steered us to these scrumptious menu items; sharing his knowledge of the local aqua culture of the area and really helped to make a great meal extremely memorable. We highly recommend Aqua when passing through the lovely town of Cape Charles and don't forget to ask for Mike. They are both keepers!
