We loved the location, ambiance and the food. Service was great too. Also, it was very reasonable and the music was quiet. We do not like loud music when we eat.

Stopped in on a Monday night and it was very busy, but we were seated right away. Food was very good, we had the Chilean Sea Bass and the Black and Tan tenderloins. Both meals were very good, the tenderloins were indeed tender. Really great bread with the olive oil mix to dip into. The price on the menu is... More

Had a lunch at this spot on a rainy Saturday recently. The make a great bloody Mary. I had a delicious cup of grilled corn and shrimp chowder but could not find more than a tiny piece of shrimp in the soup. I usually like all the soups and it did taste good but lacked one of the ingredients listed... More

This restaurant is right on Skaneateles Lake so it's a great view. Lunch was good. I had the French onion soup to start which was okay. It tasted a bit earthy at times. My husband had the corn chowder which was delicious. For my main meal, I had the fish tacos which were great. There was so much fish in... More

Great food! We were able to get a table quickly, even though they were busy. Service was certainly adequate, but it would have been nice to have a little friendlier/chattier server.

Visited for lunch and was seated without delay. Reception and staff were very friendly and service was good. Food was average (not great but not bad either). Location was excellent next to park and pier. Ambience inside was good. Compliments to Jenniffer our waitress for the great service and to all the other waitresses and reception staff.

The food and drinks were just ok. The table was wobbly so it was distracting to the entire experience.

Wandering downtown, watching the restaurants fill up, but couldn't decide where we wanted to eat. The First Friday concert was playing in the gazebo, so we decided to try the Blue Water Grill. At first glance, it didn't look like we'd get in, and if we did that the service might be slow. Pleasantly surprised on both counts...we were immediately... More

Blue Water was able to accommodate our larger group (8) for a same-day reservation, and was very helpful and friendly. All but one member enjoyed their food, and staff was quick to offer a replacement for the one meal. Overall, our group found the food good, not life-changing.

If you are looking for a great breakfast place, check out the Blue Water. Food is great and they have a nice atmosphere. Don't waste your time with a greasy diner.
