We enjoyed a great lunch here the same as last year. This is our stop for lunch before we go to our hotel. I had the coconut shrimp and fries which were done perfectly- not dry. My husband enjoyed his burger lunch equally. It is relaxing to eat here outside and watch the boats go by. They had a nice... More

Meeting up with old friends is fun enough but when you add a gorgeous view and delicious food..it doesnt get any better! I really enjoyed the crab mangoe nachoes...this not mex fare just totally fresh crab, avacado and diced mangoes on six large red nacho chips. Someone ordered the lettuce wrap with lobster, another had the salmon special..all of us... More

The food is pricey and the as not good. I got the Dijon scallops and they tasted like they were just squirted with mayonaisse all over. I dont expect to pay that much for seafood and it be soaked in mayo. The crab risotta it came with was decent but will not be back here.

Not a gourmet house but it doesn't pretend to be. Soups can be quite good. Most everything is fried but the oil must be fresh. The Intracoastal glides past as do boats of all kinds. The weekends get crowded, go mid-week.

We arrived about 8:15 in a Sunday night and had to wait about 45 minutes for an outside table. Had coconut coated chicken which was very good. Wife had Mahi Mahi which was also good. The ice tea had an unusual flavor, but the waiter assured us it was made fresh. Service was good and price for two including one... More

We are visiting and went to Bluewater and were very impressed with the quality of the food, along with the service and size of the portions. We had the Crab dip appetizer which was "out of this world"! One of our entrees was the Mixed Seafood. The Mahi Mahi was great, the salmon was cooked perfectly and delicious, and the... More

Came here for a business dinner. Outstanding service, very friendly, both outside & inside dining but not sure why you would want to be inside. Servers are great. Food was awesome.

We stopped in for an afternoon glass of wine and some soup. Wonderful Manhattan Clam Chowder. Can't beat the waterfront views. Excellent service and a wide variety of menu choices, with lots of fresh seafood.

For a beach town, this is an upscale, two-story restaurant. It is next to the yacht club, with great water view. Good wine menu. Great seafood, with many fresh items. We were a large party, and they had large tables available. In addition, the service for us was quick and efficient. All were served at the same time.
