My wife and I had an excellent dinner here. I am from the Eastern Shore of Maryland and am a crabcake snob. The crabcakes here were almost the best that I have ever had. The restaurant has an attractive bar and the view from the restaurant is very nice. The Bluewater is located right on the Inter-costal waterway. There is... More

This is our third visit to Bluewater Grill and I must say it is consistently good. The food can be pricey but most entrée item choices are okay. Three of us had the crab cakes and they were good but a little greasy (butter I presume). Wines choices were okay, bottles better than glasses. Mixed drinks were delicious. Our waiter... More

My first visit to the Wilmington area and we dined here. I am from Maryland originally so I love crab cakes and don't think anyone can come close. The crab cakes here were awesome! The bacon wrapped scallops and crab dip as appetizers were perfect also! A great place with an impeccable staff that allowed us to enjoy a special... More

We celebrated a 60th wedding anniversary on a rainy afternoon with a group of family and friends. Stacy took care of us all with a personal touch. The food was very good and delivered efficiently (even for our large group). We were able to bring our own champagne and cake, which Stacy served expertly. The waterway views added a nice... More

We chose Bluewater on our first trip to Wrightsville to see the Holiday Flotilla. There were two servers and two hostesses who were so friendly and outgoing to our special needs grandson. We enjoyed the crab dip, flounder, and shrimp, and decided to order dessert to kick off our grandson's third birthday week on Dec. 4. They added whipped cream... More

Any time, I'm in Wrightsville Beach, I must Dine at this Location. Right on a Water Way that is filled with all types of Boats. In good weather, eat outside. Menu Items are a little pricey, but the amounts are generous. Wait staff well trained.

Started off with the crab, and had the Harvest Salad. My guests had the seafood wrap and the prime rib salad. Our waiter was attentive and kept our glasses full. It was a lovely meal with a lovely view. Always nice at high tide. Give it a try, you will love it and keep coming back!

We attended a rehearsal dinner there. We started out upstairs, out on the deck overlooking the ICW during sunset enjoying the best hors d'oeuvres and a few beers. Later on we were escorted to very nice private dining area. The food was excellent and the service attentive. I would highly recommend Bluewater for a special event.

As we were visiting for a 51st reunion, we were so grateful to this restaurant for accommodating the extras from our group that showed up as it turned out to be a very rainy day. What a great menu and service as we were the last to be seated and thought we would never be served for a long, long... More

Good food at reasonable prices, but what impressed us was their ability to respond to a crowd of over 40 showing up un announced. Bravo to the staff.
