We recently visited this restaurant due to being highly recommended from friends. My kids were excited, waterfront, boats everywhere, great location! While enjoying our appetizer; we had a rather unique situation arise. A quite intoxicated bar guest decided to start causing a scene using bad language and acting very un-lady like, to the point my daughter asked to leave. I... More

What is most important to you? To me a combination of the two is always good. As a yacht captain I stopped in Wrightsville beach for the night. Went to the closest place and here I am. Sit down at bar looking hungry. After 3 customers that came after me are served I'm asked for an order. Given my drink... More

This is a very busy local restaurant in Wrightsville Beach. We called ahead for a party of seven of us and they were able to get us a table in the lower section right along the water for dinner. Food is outstanding, local fish selections. Our server was also great. Friendly and efficient. Worth hitting this place when you are... More

My husband and I often stop at Bluewater Grill for lunch when we drive to Wilmington to do some shopping. We enjoy sitting at a waterfront table to enjoy a relaxing meal while watching the boats go by or pull up and dock while their owners come inside the restaurant. Yesterday, our food choices were the coconut shrimp with the... More

My family went to Bluewater for dinner recently and had a very nice meal. They do not take reservations, but you can call 30 minutes before you arrive and put your name on the wait list. We did, and when we arrived, we were quickly seated. Sit outside if the weather is nice. They have great views of the inner... More

Gave this place two tries and still nothing... First Try- Thanksgiving Day 2013 My Boyfriend and I just moved to NC and were looking for an upscale Thanksgiving experience. Our parents were coming in from NY and we wanted to WOW them. The reviews for their "high-end" buffet (promised fresh fruit/shrimp/all the traditional dishes) were enough to convince us. I... More

Arrived when they opened at 11 for lunch on Sun. 3 of us shared the spicy Bacon Wrapped Scallops with pico de gallo and the Wedge Salad with pico vinaigrette. Yes, they were yummy. Choosing the main course was a challenge but settled on blackened fish tacos, blackened salmon wrap, & seafood lasagna. We ended with the flourless chocolate tort.... More
