Aqua Terra in Buford gets new owners

By Pamela A. Keene
Aqua Terra Bistro in Buford has new owners. Dale and Jessica Ozaki purchased the popular restaurant late last year from long-time owner Laurie Attaway. They also own Fish Tales at Hideaway Bay Marina and Pig Tales at Aqualand Marina.
“Laurie has always been a mentor to us as we’ve grown our business,” said Dale Ozaki. “When she told us she was interested in selling Aqua Terra to focus on her special event facility in Buford, we knew it was the right move.” 
The restaurant, which has long been a mainstay in downtown Buford, serves both lunch and dinner. It’s known for its fresh cuisine and upscale dining. 
“We’ve kept many of the same menu items that have been favorites with our regulars, such as our tomato garlic spread and seared scallops,” he said. “And we’ve elevated the lunch and dinner menus with new dishes we’ll be introducing in the next few weeks, including veal, halibut, lamb and duck.”
The operating hours have been extended as well. Aqua Terra is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 .m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations for dinner, which begins at 4 p.m., are recommended. 
Aqua Terra Bistro is located at 55 East Main Street in downtown Buford. For more information, visit or call 770 271-3000.
