Neat place to be in downtown Chattanooga, very busy place. Service was par but I was expecting more since the meals were fairly high end and priced that way.

My Husband took me here for my birthday and it was a huge disappointment after hear a lot of good things about the restaurant. We both had the Ahi Tuna and it was the worst we ever had.

Was with a group and the leader said he was going here to eat and if we wanted to come along....to join him. Which I did. The service was great, the decor was great, the food was great! I had the glazed salmon. Very good!

Stopped in last weekend for an appetizer and drinks. The place is gorgeous with beautiful lighting and decor. Wife had a moscow mule and I had a porter from the micoro brew next door. Our server was fantastic. We will definitely return when back in Chattanooga.

By chance we stumbled into the Blue Water on NYE. As luck would have it a reservation had just cancelled and we got a table.
