We have tried lunch, dinner and happy hour at Blue Water. Nice local spot to patronize. Food is above average and service is good. The last Happy hour we went for was very good and the bartender was entertaining.

I took Jean to Blue Water for lunch to celebrate her birthday. Alvin greeted us warmly with a big smile as we entered. Our bubbly and knowledgeable server, Erica, not only gave us attentive service but also was able to have the chef modify my veggie panini to suit my rigid vegan diet. Our meals were superb! The panini was... More

How did we never know about this sweet gem of a restaurant before'? The choices are endless and we didn't know where to begin. The fish dishes were great as was the soup. Our waiter Richard was friendly and knowledgable about all the specials. The onion soup is also fantastic. Thx for a great meal.

Went here for date night. Everything was amazing! Can be difficult to get a table sometimes. I would see if they accept reservations if going for dinner, especially weekends and peak beach season

aside from in the beach towns ( lewes or Rehoboth), this area has few restaurants to write home about. ............however, this place is a real winner. it was hard to choose from their very varied menu + they have small and large portions. I was more than pleased with the FRESH tuna. our server, Richard, was more than attentive. hope... More

The onion soup,blt and oyster salad were very good until a bug (roach) crawled across the table. Onion rings were not good at all to much coating and no taste also no taste to the dip provided. Skip them. Would not go back.

Christine, I am so sorry to hear about your experience. I am glad you enjoyed the French Onion soup, the BLT, and the Oyster Salad. I am sorry the Onion Ring appetizer was not to your liking. As far as the bug, again I apologize. We do not own the building and have no control over the apartments above us.... More

We just moved to Millsboro, and the Blue Water Grill has quickly become our favorite place to eat. We have visited on many occasions, and is our "go to" place whenever friends and family visit. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is pleasant, the staff is very attentive and the prices are reasonable. There is a good selection of everything... More

Had dinner here for the first time this past month and it was very good. The food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. Love the Fish Board and all the specials.
