Nice place - don't let the location throw you

You wouldn't drive by this place and think "hey, i should..." - in fact, it isn't the easiest place to find. Food is excellent! Ambience is very nice. Service outstanding. No downside to this place in my view. Try it.

Some of my local friends eat here and took me along. It was incredibly crowded due to the furniture festival that was on at the same time. But we managed to get a late reservation and after a brief wait at the bar we got seated. I started with the Crab Bisque which was incredibly smooth and creamy, very lush.... More

The Blue Water Grill is a nice restaurant in High Point. The staff on this visit was very friendly. We were a large party and were seated in the bar area at a high top table (we had a reservation albeit late). It was an early dinner which started when the bar opened at 5:00...they start serving dinner at 5:30.... More

while on a visit to High Point University the Grill was recommended as the best place in town. So we made reservations for the same night no trouble... Once seated I was wondering how good will this be? Well our server was very professional, polite and helpful. She accurately described the dishes and understood wine paring. Once the food came...

Had an extraordinary meal on more than one occasion in this off the beaten path location. The choices were quite varied and each with a new interpretation. Great place for those that like to challenge the palate.

Very nice atmosphere to come and enjoy Friday evening cocktail and appetizers before dinner! We sat at the bar and received great service by bartender! We ordered calamari and mussels and couldn't decide which was better! Both were outstanding and the bread dipped in the mussel broth was unbelievable! If you don't want to sit at the bar, make a...

We tried Blue Water Grill while on a furniture shopping trip. We had already tried most of the other noteworthy restaurants in the area. The decor is rustic, but very attractive with several pretty fish tanks in the dining room. The food was very good and the service excellent. We tried local North Carolina fish and fish from the outer... More

We stopped here for dinner on our way into town, never in all my time and TripAdvisor reviews have I been completely turned away from a restaurant. We arrived to the restaurant which had empty tables (if you read my review on their sister restaurant they have the same problem). The hostesses have total control of seating and they book... More

What a mess, Tried to get a meal when in town. Plenty of empty tables, but none for us. So we try to sit in the bae, again empty tables but they are reserved. No real effort to help us out.

We had a family dinner at Blue Water over the Christmas 2014 break. The night we went it was raining like crazy and the business was light. We were seated immediately and the service was fast and efficient. The waitress was friendly and attentive. Blue Water is an upscale seafood restaurant and right on the marina, I mean, literally hovering... More
