Fodor's Expert Review Aqua Grill

$$$ Ponte Vedra Beach Eclectic

Come hungry. That might be the best advice for visitors to this Sawgrass Village restaurant, whose menu covers all the bases—steaks, pasta, pork chops, burgers, and lobster. But eclectic preparation of fresh seafood is what Aqua Grill does best. The constantly changing menu might include Vidalia-crusted grouper, Cedar Key oysters Rockefeller, and locally caught snapper cooked as you like it. Portions are huge, so share an appetizer, several featuring local Mayport shrimp. 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. There's a lively bar scene, with sports showing on seven HDTVs. The full menu is available at the bar, but there's bar food, too, such as the chef's El Presidente wings.
