“Best Soft Shell Crab EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

It was a very busy Friday night and we added two people to our party last minute, so things took longer than they perhaps should have. The server seemed unaware of our presence, but when the hostess became aware of the lack of attention, she immediately brought us a complimentary bottle of wine. Truthfully, we were so deeply engrossed in conversation, we almost didn't notice the tardiness, other than the fact that our beverages were running out. various members of the party ordered salmon, soft crabs, Scallops and crab cakes and all were quite good. The soft crabs were the best I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Perfectly done, extremely fresh, with a coating so light it was barely there. Just enough to add a bit of crispness when you bit. The salmon elicited similar comments. A terrific evening, with great food. Lapses in service, but handled quite deftly. Would definitely go again were I to return to Cape Charles.

“Triple Threat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Awesome food. Great service. Stunning sunset. An all around great road trip from Virginia Beach. Aqua is a beautiful building painted aqua of course right on the water. We arrived at 6pm on a Saturday night and we were seated right away. We started with brie cheese with fresh peaches and the Thai shrimp. Both were outstanding and plenty to share with the four of us. I could have eaten the entire plate of brie all by myself! It was delicious. Our group ordered the bacon wrapped meatloaf served with homemade mashers and mixed veggies, crab cakes atop couscous with a side of asparagus and scallops over lobster risotto also with asparagus. The side order of mac and cheese from the kids menu was devoured! Everything was wonderful. After a few cocktails and dinner we wandered out on the deck to watch the gorgeous sunset. We will certainly make the lovely drive back over to Cape Charles.

“Food + Service + View = Complete Package”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

The food is definitely not the finest I have ever eaten; the view is not the absolute best I have ever witnessed, the service was not above and beyond spectacular, but all in all this restaurant undoubtedly has the best combined package in the vicinity and is definitely worth a stopover or detour. Very upscale in most respects, but food might be improved. Still a good find for sure.
