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. Blue Water Grilled also offers a wide variety of non-seafood entrees including beef tenderloin. - See more at: http://www.Bluewatergrillenc.Com/About-Us#sthash.TtdOQswA.Dpuf

Great seafood!

This is not the typical Calabash Style seafood mostly found in this area. The Ahi Tuna was really good. The oysters were from Brunswick Canada and were very tasty although on the petite side. Service is great, Wait staff is professional. As this is a fairly upscale and restaurant, the customers... read more

Best seafood in High Point. Appetizers, entrees, and desserts are all good. The wine selections are better than average.

We went for a birthday dinner with one person who had never been there and two who had only been once. Everyone agreed, it is the best in town and we should all go more often. I can not say one thing was wrong with the meal. It was a wonderful experience and well worth the time to find the... More

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
