Good food

As it was a Friday we booked a table . We'd been when we last visited the village so knew it was popular . It was very busy but the service was good it's not a place for a quiet dinner as its bustling and quite noisy but that was ok . Better than being too quiet . I had... read more

Nice spot in a central location. Has two popular bars with an average selection of beers, wines, and drinks. The food is okay, a bit overpriced however. We have no bad, but also no good memories about the place. So, if you need a spot, go.

I think my dining partner loved the steak frites. I had the lobster and crab roll and it was good. Loved the variety of seating options- inside- outside- or halfway between. Great service. Overall the food was good, just not great, you are paying for a beautiful location.

We liked our server very much -- wonderfully friendly and helpful. The space is nice, and you can't beat the location. We felt a bit disappointed with the food. The menu is all over the place: wraps, soups, sushi, nachos. It suffers a bit from trying to be all things to all people. The scallop chowder wasn't very hearty (we... More

We (a party of two) stopped into Blue Water Grill for a late lunch. The restaurant was not busy; however wait staff at the front door found it more important to finish their conversation with each other than greet prospective diners. We were seated indoors, not given an option to select outdoor seating. When we question if outdoor seating was... More

We have eaten here several times and the food has always been well prepared and very tasty. The wait staff is attentive and the restaurant is located in a nice spot in the downtown area on the lake. It's always been enjoyable to eat here at the Blue Water Grill.

Today was Sushi Tuesday @Blue Water Grill...good idea as a draw, however, the lure of the lakeside dining and the somehow thought that maybe fresh fish and water are correlated failed miserably here today. Sushi totally more rice than protein; and the protein, skimpy, microscopic and guess what, the salmon and tuna and yellowtail all tasted alike, as in tasteless.... More

Sat outside on the deck with a view of the lake. We called the morning of and were able to make a reservation for 3. Carrie our waitress was really great. Nice and friendly. Our food was fantastic! Had the brie appetizer and the lobster/crab sandwich served with a side. Great wine and martini choices.
