Great food and dining experience

This is a restaurant in a tourist area. Nice if you haven't been before, but you wouldn't just go here because the food is good. Its the outdoors on the waterway experience and locals don't go very often.

This was my first time at Bluewater as I do not live in Wilmington. My family who lives there as been often and held several special occasion events there so they recommended it. We had a crowd of ten ranging from 9 to 80. Everybody found something on the menu they liked -- the coconut shrimp was popular among our... More

I went for lunch last week on a warm, sunny day, so we could sit outside. Really enjoyed the view on the harbor. We hit a time that was quite busy, but Tristan handled the crowd in a professional, understated way. We ordered the crab cake sandwich and the shrimp/lobster wrap. The crab cake sandwich was good but fairly small.... More

Service by Beth was excellent...very friendly! Lots of fried dishes, so I chose salad with chicken; and my husband had the seafood platter. The portions were very generous and the food was very good. We've dined here in the summertime outside, and the atmosphere is awesome!

I have been to Blue Water many times outside and loved it. My husband and I went for dinner inside and sat at the bar. When I was finishing my food a cockroach ran off my plate the bartender immediately caught it and went back to the kitchen with my plate. The manager came out saying she informed the chef... More

My wife and I took another couple here for dinner (13 Feb) and each of us were offering high praises of the food. Two of us had the Wild Salmon Special -- done to perfection yielding as good a salmon dish as I've ever had. My wife (not a big fish fan) had a fried flounder dish that she was... More

Great dinner, interesting menu and knowledgeable server. Recommend to anyone looking for really fresh seafood. Blackened redfin and scallops perfect.

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
