Delicious fresh seafood

Wonderfully prepared fresh seafood. Fried oysters are a must and my fave drink the Jim Dandy (grownup arnold Palmer) is perfect for summertime!

Blue Water Grill is located in an historic building in downtown Millsboro that once was a hardware store run by the Godfrey family. The restaurant has maintained the tin ceiling and other charming (but not elegant) features from the old hardware store. The food matches the charm of the restaurant, serving fresh seafood (among other items) with farm to table... More

We ordered two hamburgers, one house and one ultimate. We asked for them medium, they came out slightly over done, but were tasty. They were served with potato chips and a whole small pickle. One bun was a bit dry, like it had been out of the package too long. The onion straws on the ultimate were crisp but not... More

I heard about this place and wanted to try it because it was in a quiet little town away from the beach crowd in Rehoboth Beach. We went on a Monday evening and it was not busy compared to weekends. We had the oyster sandwiches and they were amazing. The toasted roll was loaded with oysters. We don't usually have... More

I can't believe we had never been to the Blue Water Grill before. We travel to Millsboro often and had never stopped. The service was very good, the food was exactly what was expected and the atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxed and comfortable. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal and left full and happy.

My wife and I live nearby Millsboro and decided to try the #1 rated on Tripadvisor. SOOOO glad we did! The Crab Dip was excellent, about the best I have ever had, the bacon wrapped scallops were delicious as well. My wife had the stuffed salmon and I had the Shrimp and Scallop Imperial, basically crab imperial on top of... More

This was the first time we ate here and likely will not be back anytime soon, which is disappointing since we are always looking for some good "regular" restaurants . Although the food was, to our relief, really good and served hot, the atmosphere and timing was terrible. They have a metal ceiling, which as we all know, does nothing... More

Heather, Although we do appreciate your business, we can't help but to take offense to your review. My husband and I have worked incredibly hard over the past 8 years to be where we are today. We have made is through a lengthy recession, 2 blizzards, and 1 fire that forced us to close for 6 months. On Friday and... More

I am just wrapping up my lunch here and it was delicious! I am a local and have never been here, and I am very picky about eating out. The prices are reasonable and the food was great! We had crab dip, which was just the blend of crab and cream cheese and horseradish served with a warm baguette. Then... More

Not sure why we never stopped here before. That changed last Friday when we had dinner @ the Blue Water Grill. We were greeted immediately by several staff members. The place was pretty crowded but they found us a table. Our server, Erika, welcomed us and went over the evening's specials. We enjoyed the drinks and oysters on the half... More
