A very good restaurant, great and professional service and very good menu. Large group(16) of B&B owners had dinner and the staff handled all of us with no problems.

Blue water grill has seafood you will not forget. Sat at a table where we could see onto the frozen lake, so beautiful! I had crab cakes, another had crab salad sandwich (both with large lumps of delicious crab) and another had the cod special. We also got spinach artichoke dip that was beyond amazing and some specialty drinks, if... More

House Corn & Scallop Chowder and Gluten Free Tomato Bisque, with fresh bread to go, warms the soul on these cold winter days. Priced just right.

Made it to Blue Water Grill for the first time and was not disappointed. It's a great place for brunch with plenty of selections to choose from. From the breakfast croissant to the cobb salad and smoked turkey baguette, all was delicious. Good portion sizes too - enough to take home for later. Obviously a friendly place since a lot... More

We ate in the rear with view of the lake and the choices on the breakfast menu were abundant and varied. Plenty of food, efficient & friendly service, and we enjoyed the visit very much.

On a holiday weekend road trip we stumbled upon the Blue Water Grill and were delighted with our find. The daily specials were delightful and the full menu was impressive. There is even a sushi menu. The environment is casual and the service was great.

We stopped in here this week during the Dickens Christmas festival, and the whole town was enjoying themed day. I was pleased to see that there were seats available even at 12:15 PM, so there was no wait for a table. This restaurant is pretty good sized inside, and the rooms offer a wide variety of seating and views of... More

Stopped here for lunch during the last weekend of the Charles dickens fest. Despite it being very busy we got quick prompt efficient and friendly service. I got the scallop chowder and soft shell crab rolls. Each were very good and served quickly. I definitely recommend this place.
