Had been to Newport location, and loved it. Ditto here! Mahi Mahi was fresh and prepared perfectly. Side, bread, and desert (key lime pie) were excellent too. Beautiful view,and excellent service.

We have been to Bluewater Grill several times and have never been disappointed with the food and atmosphere. The menu changes often as the seafood selections become available. As it turned out on this visit, we arrived so early that we decided to try the "early bird" (although they call it something else) menu selections. As you can imagine, the... More

Great seafood place right on the marina in Redondo. Seafood is also fresh, crab is always great, and service is always stellar. On weekends, make sure to have a reservation. I love the oysters, especially the oyster shooter cocktail......mmmmmm. Highly recommend. I come at least once a month.

Blue water grill is one if our favorite restaurants in the South Bay. We tend to go , mainly for dinner, several times a month. I always rate a restaurant based on the bread they serve and blue water grills brings hot sour dough bread as soon as you sit down. Very hard to resist. The food is always good... More

What would have been a very enjoyable dining experience was marred by terrible service. The restaurant's setting is beautiful; we were seated overlooking the harbor and with a great view of the coastline. Our server was both inattentive and rushed despite having only a few tables to attend to. He seemed to disappear several times throughout our meal, leaving us... More

It's hard to complain when your window view is the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean while you are watching sail boats bob up and down. The sea scallops were delicious, served over a bed of wilted spinach and sliced onions. I'm very particular about margaritas and their house special was perfect. Service was excellent

We came here for some barfood and a couple if drinks - very good selection, we enjoyed some finger food, oysters Rockefeller - price is definitely acceptable fort the quality of food. While we didn't have it, their higher end wines were priced very reasonable.

We have had the pleasure of eating at all their locations (even on Catalina Island) and they never disappoint. Our go to restaurant in L.A. Amazing fresh seafood with great chef specials.

The staff was awesome. Fast and friendly, corrected minor issues with our order promptly. My order (shrimp/scallops with pasta and wine sauce) was, meh. Hubby liked parts of his (San Francisco), in law loves the shrimp/scallop skewers. Kids liked their kids meals with good portions. But it definitely wasn't my favorite. Perhaps it was just what I ordered. Mine just... More

Great spot for seafood - lines can be big - we managed to bypass the line by taking the little table near the kitchen - not much of a view but we got in and out quickly. Service was good but not the cheapest place. Fish was delicious so would recommend this place and they are very kid friendly too.
