Fresh fish and Walleye from MN

This is the only place I have found that serves Walleye from Minnesota where I spend much time at. I caught many in my lifetime and always enjoyed dining on them too. This is the only place I have found in this area the serves fresh Walleye. Yum Yum!

We've been to this restaurant several times and have always been happy with the service, ambiance and, of course, the food. Have never had a bad meal there, and usually go with friends who enjoy it as much as we do. One of my favorite dishes is the trout, but, everything is always delicious, and would highly recommend putting on... More

My wife and I stopped in for a Saturday lunch prior to some shopping at The District. Not many people put and about so we were seated very quickly. Our server Craig, and the manager Ryan, took great care of us making menu and beverage suggestions. We started with the Crab & Artichoke Dip. Hot and yummy with some cheese... More

Wife's from Massachusetts and we go here to get her fried clam fix. Sunday evening early, not crowded so we had our choice of tables. Clams were nicely done, not overcooked, with cole slaw and french fries (what else?) with malt vinegar. I had the red snapper with heirloom tomatoes with a mango salsa. Very nice. Good service, pretty quiet... More

Had dinner with a few colleagues and the food was really good. The grilled shirmp skewers were done just right, tender and juicy. For appetizers, the artichoke dip was fine, but the Rockefeller oysters were great. Service was attentive and pleasant. I checked out the Happy Hour, which was restricted to the bar, maybe come back another time.

I just love their clam chowder, lobster bisque, grilled artichoke, fish & chips, and just all of their appetizers. We often go there for happy hour (check the hours) when drinks and appetizers are half price.

I visited the Bluewater Grill (in the District at Tustin) most recently for lunch with a good friend/coworker of mine. Even though we arrived early and there was hardly anyone there, we were led to the bar side of the restaurant … a little odd, but we went with it. There were sporting events showing on the TVs at the... More

We arrived here as it has a great entrance, so we thought it was a good place to have dinner. Everything was nice, welcome, service, order, restrooms, until they brought all appetizers and main dishes together, so I had the New England bowl and the Bluewater burger at the same time. I asked to have it brought later, and obviously... More

We were visiting Costa Mesa and went to see a movie at The District, the lovely shopping area where there are many restaurants. We like seafood, so we thought we'd try the Bluewater Grill. It was after 8 on a Friday night, but the restaurant was not that busy. We had prompt service, and ordered the Minnesota Walleye and a... More
