Inside, elegant seating alcoves (both booths and banquettes) are softly lit by glamorous glass sculptural lighting. On the walls, exquisite metal sculptures, coastal art and fun beachscapes (cowabunga!) decorate the dining room. The  magnificent mahogany Aqua Bar is beautifully lit for an evening of cocktails or fine wine before Chef Vargo’s amazing food.  With two bars (The Reel Bar and the indoor Aqua Bar) and a patio out back, the pale ocean-sky blue interiors mirror the beach ambiance. Aqua Prime Seafood & Steaks prides itself on outstanding cuisine, courteous service and comfortable surroundings, a true Gulf Beach treasure for locals and visitors alike.


The talented chefs deliver Florida coastal cuisine, searching out the best ingredients and sourcing locally when they can and are proud to be named Tampa Bay Magazine’s Best New Restaurant.  Seafood and steaks star here, especially the jumbo shrimp (coconut or lightly fried with a caper mayo dressing),  crab cakes, divine mussels (citrus lemon butter, smoked sausage,capers, artichokes and feta), stuffed lobster, pan seared scallops,  grouper and ahi tuna.
