Aqua originated as a tapas restaurant in 2003, and has grown into a favorite spot for locals and visitors year-round.
Fresh, local flavors take priority at Aqua, and diners are likely to find sun-ripened local tomatoes, fresh-caught grouper, regional cheeses and more among the menu choices.
Food is only so good without a proper drink in hand, and Aqua's large but moderately priced wine selection, beer choices and varied specialty martini list leave few wanting.
Bottled wine discounts on Friday, a $10 wine tasting twice monthly on Tuesday and wine dinners throughout the year allow enthusiasts to sip and explore.
Experience Aqua, only in Historic Beaufort, North Carolina.
