Bluewater Grill offers a wide variety of items at a reasonable cost. The blackened salmon sandwich was delicious. I also appreciated that their side of fruit actually included other fruit than melon - yay for kiwi & strawberries! Bluewater has live music to enjoy on Sunday afternoon/evenings from the spring to the fall. Check it out if you're around Wrightsville... More

Favorite dish is definitely the seafood lasagna. Whenever friends come to town we take them here and it never disappoints. The view is awesome. The food is great and the atmosphere is more like fine dining beach style. The food is prepared at the fine dining level, but this is more of a casual place to eat.

We ate at the bar as the place was 'packed' and just decided to get 'apps' the service was mediocre but the views were really nice. The food was typical but I don't know if that is a fair assessment as we only ordered 'apps'. In small defense of the place, they were busy ...

The grilled seafood combo and the catch of the day were nice. They let you sub in vegetables. Outdoor seating benefits from huge electrically controlled shades that go up and down. A bit pricy, but closer to 5 stars than to 3.

We came straight from boating but didn't feel out of place. It was packed but had call ahead seating since we had 6 people. I ordered the crab nachos.

Bluewater Grill has an absolutely wonderful location on the Intracoastal Waterway, but the food is just not good. Summer in North Carolina is all about fresh ingredients and, once again, they sit right on the Intracoastal Waterway. So why was their fish selection salmon (farmed), tilapia (farmed) and previously frozen tuna? I ordered a shrimp and crab cobb salad, which... More

Bluewater is one of our favorite restaurants. We are local to the Wilmington, NC area and this is one of our "go to" favorite places to eat or to celebrate a special occasion. We ate there on a Sunday evening and there was a band playing outside near the dockside tables and bar area. It was a nice added touch... More
