Good Food/Good Service

Had lunch there a few weeks ago and everything was delish. A must try is the butternut squash soup, OMG IT'S DELICIOUS!!! Had a very attentive server as well. A place we like to go from time to time. If you are in town stop and try it out. Nice Restaurant

We have had lunch at Blue Water Grill often and decided to have dinner. That was the mistake! The soup was barely warm and salty. The chef must have been in love and added too much salt. The soup was so bad that we had to return it. One member of the party had the rock fish and it was... More

I believe that every person in every position in life does slip at some point. The restaurant business is certainly no exception, especially considering the number of people we are attempting to satisfy on a daily basis. The cream of crab soup is a sensitive soup because of the Old Bay in the recipe... as it sits on the steam... More

We stopped in for lunch a couple of weeks ago. It was our first time back since they reopened after the fire. Service was friendly and excellent. I had the french dip au jus with regular fries. The meat was tender and flavorful. The roll and fries were also very tasty. My companion had the mini swordfish serving which she... More

Stopped by on a weekday night for dinner, lucky for us it was half price bottle of wine night (Wednesday), that was a pleasant surprise. Bottle of Riesling being half price was $14.50, that was a great deal. Richard was our server and he was fantastic! Very attentive and gave us all the nightly specials and answered our questions.

Nice casual setting. Not noisy like some places so you can have a conversation. Food and selection are great. Never had a bad meal there yet. Service has always been good.

Stopped for lunch and were warmly greeted. Very nice pub style restaurant with roomy booths. Hubby ordered a 'hot chick' blackened chicken sandwich with the $1 sweet potato fries. The sandwich comes with a spicy remoulade sauce. It was delicious! I ordered the BLT with fried green tomatoes...so good! We definitely recommend this restaurant! Prices are reasonable for the food... More

We visited the BWG on 1/20/15 for lunch with a large group. Three of us that I know of ordered the "crab cake" sandwich. I would advise the BWG to remove crab cake from their menu. It was without a doubt the worst crab cake I have ever eaten! When my wife questioned the waitress that it tasted like fish,... More

I wish that I had had an opportunity to speak with this couple and given an opportunity to correct the situation. I would have been happy to offer them an alternative to our crab cake sandwich but to say that it needs to be removed and that their overall experience was 'terrible' is very harsh. They were with a group... More

We have dined at the Blue Water Grill several times since they re-opened, but the most recent experience was not good as compared to our other visits, hence the reason I did not rate it lower. We had the nightly special of coconut encrusted mahi. The fish was raw in the center and the waiter sent the raw portion back... More

We hadn't been to this restaurant for a couple of years. They recently reopened due to a fire. We decided to give it a try. We made reservations for Christmas Eve for the whole family. Food was fanstastic. We started with beer cheese and pretzels which were so good. We then each had an entree (5 people all together) and... More

We read in the Cape Gazette that the Blue Water Grill in historic downtown Millsboro, DE had reopened after a kitchen fire a year ago. Had lunch there today - what a great value, will be back. Many lunch specials, my usually critical wife's salmon sandwich was praised as one of the best, and even my burger was very special.... More
