Great seafood!

The food and the service were very good. The ambience was wonderful. The prices were a little high but fair.

I love everything about this restaurant. The food, the waitstaff, the ambience. It is all good. There is a little outdoor patio perfect for NC weather. I love the tuna appetizer.

We trusted our instincts and sought out a place to get a great dinner after road trip food for 3 days. Wow. Jackpot. The salads were delicious. The little tomatoes were bright red and full of flavor. The Wedge was not your typical salad. It was presented as a roll of layers with all sorts of hidden treasures inside. The... More

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.
