Come hungry. That might be the best advice for visitors to this highly acclaimed restaurant. The menu covers all the bases—steaks, pasta, fork-tender pork shank—but eclectic preparation of fresh seafood is what Aqua Grill does best. The constantly rotating menu might include crispy red snapper Bangkok or pan-seared local triggerfish with pork belly confit and fried leeks. Portions are huge, so share an appetizer. The most popular is the fried green tomatoes with bacon,
goat cheese, Thai chile remoulade and Cajun shrimp salad. The restaurant is a popular spot for locals celebrating special occasions, but it's more casual than formal and has a charming lakeside patio dining area surrounded by waterfalls. Kids—and adults—love observing the colorful saltwater aquarium in the dining room. There's a lively bar scene, with sports showing on seven HD TVs. The full menu is available at the bar, but there's bar food, too, such as the chef's El Presidente wings.
