Lively Lunch

Went here for late lunch on a Tuesday...it was busy and lively. Sitting outside on the railing was very entertaining as boaters come in an out to visit the Bluewater...let's just say there were a couple close calls and one scraping bump and run at the dock. The food was delicious and the view is... read more

I loved this restaurant. We ate outside by the canal. It was a beautiful night. The food was excellent, as was the service. I was completely satisfied with the meal, so we split a dessert, which was just decadent. I may go back to Wrightsville Beach just to eat here again. Prices were not too bad. I believe it was...

Been here before and we decided to go as we needed a seafood hit! Got a shaded table outside afer explaining we still weren't used to the direct sun and heat but staff were friendly and obliging. We ordered appetizers to share so had hot crab dip, crab nachos and popcorn shrimp. Everything was fresh, cooked well and delicious. Its... More

Another great seafood restaurant in WB. We should have sat outside as we had a very large "gaggle of geese" sitting next to us, and they were so loud that we couldn't even hear ourselves talk! The crab nachos are to die for!! the best I've ever had.

Went here on vacation with my 2 boys. Sat outside with a great view of the bay and the boats going by. Service was great. Food was so so. Chowder was great! Coconut shrimp was ok. Popcorn shrimp was hi quality. The fries were soft and luke warm. Great place to meet for drinks with friends!

This is a great restaurant that you can come to from boat or car. It's nice to sit and eat while watching the yachts come and go down the waterway. It is relaxing to sit there with your food and just look out as the sun sets. The crab dip is my favorite thing we've tried.

We did not have any reservations when we arrived on July 5, and while we would have wanted a table outside on the causeway, we were unwilling to wait, so we were seated at a table near the window overlooking the water, which was good enough. My husband had the fresh grouper, which he liked a lot, and I had... More

Great atmosphere. Even though it was a HOT day, we sat outside at a table in the shade and under a wonderful ceiling fan. Great spot with my 11 year old grandson. We had a great view of the marina and the big draw bridge. The food was good and the service excellent A little pricey

I enjoy Bluewater year-round, as I live here. This evening, we took the boat over for apps and drinks, to hear a specific band. We ordered plenty of drinks; but, the only app that looked good on a 95 degree day was the tuna. And, it was good! But, when the server didn't get food orders, she stopped coming by.... More

We came here with a group including babies. The food was very good, but not excellent. The fish was great, but sides were a bit lacking. I wish they had more windows or had them open. We were seated inside and wouldn't have known we were on the water. The service was very good and attentive. We had some overcooked... More
