Owner/Chef Paul Riggan is serving an artistically infused menu with creations influenced from French, Asian, Caribbean and low country cuisines. Potato Crusted Salmon, a delectable Stealhead Carolina Trout as well as nightly specials await your selection. Feel free to look through the menus section to see the wide variety of food offered. Wonderful cuisines which range from Veal Crostini to a very tasty BBQ Duck Confit served over smoked cheddar polenta, locally grown collard greens and finished with a tangy barbecue sauce.

A Pleasant Surprise

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... read 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

Seafood is fresh, well prepared, and creative without being ridiculous. Flavor of the seafood is prominent, not covered up as so many restaurants do. Staff could be friendlier, but then High Point doesn't seem to have much of a hiring pool for food service industry outside drop-n-slop practices. Very nice experiences we have had here.

Three of us dined at the Blue Water Grill restaurant the other evening. We liked everything. My particular favorite: the Pot Stickers and the Chocolate Torte Cake. I could have eaten them all day! The other two diners loved the BBQ Duck small plate. Everything was good. We will definitely go back.

We've dined at Blue Water numerous times and find the food delicious and consistent. The entrees are well portioned and always prepared as ordered. Our service has always been good quality and we will definitely return as often as possible.

We had dinner here for a business meal withy colleague. The apps were excellent and the food very well prepared. The wine list was a bit lacking but did have some nice selections. I would recommend the tuna tartar for a starter as it was very good. The frogmans stew was fantastic and is a must have if you dine... More
