Great fish, you better be patient- because it's worth it.

This place has a bunch to offer, BUT... it is small and they dont reserve tables and you will probably wait to get seated for a good while. The good news is the fish is very fresh and cooked to perfection. They are visible in glass coolers for purchase or to have cooked fresh for you. The dominant... read more

Fresh and delishious food!!! Always a line, not much room to sit and eat. Would stand and wait in line again and maybe tip the waitress to get a seat on patio.

First timers and real foodies, my husband and I shared everything, ordering the beer battered lobster and shrimp tacos and their fish n' chips. Both tacos were to die for with a scrumptious green sauce to dip them in. Fresh cabbage, tomatoes, shredded cheddar, green and red onion toppings added pleasing textures. The fried fish on the fish n' chips... More

The fish was fresh and cooked to order but the wait line was a bit long. I had Yellowtail salad. The Thousand Island dressing was homemade and very good. Husband had the shark tacos. Both good size plates of food. You can also buy fresh fish from them. Kind of hard to find and difficult parking.

Every time we've gone to Blue Water Seafood there is a line out the door waiting to order and be seated. And every time we go to San Diego we go back and wait in that line because it is so worth the wait. The seafood( all of the many choices) is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. The staff is... More

It's been about one year since I came to this place. I crave it at least once a month. I remember having the seared sesame tuna sandwich and it was probably the best seafood sandwich I had in my life. I hope to be back to San Diego in the next two months and will probably end up here as... More

Very unique seafood restaurant. You line up to order and then the food is brought to your table. Unfortunately, upon our arrival the line up was out the door and it took us an hour before we got to order (we wouldn't have bothered if we knew it would take this long). Luckily, the food was amazing! You choose your... More

My brother likes this seafood establishment so we tried it. It's casual, wait in line to order, sit down at patio tables to eat or take out. I loved their calamari! The Grouper special taco was tasty too! My better half was not crazy about the grouper taco, because I think he enjoys crispy fried fish tacos, which were also... More

Nice smaller place. Line is long but goes quick to order. They then bring food to you but does take a bit as it is cooked fresh. Delicious. Large portions. Parking is limited. We parked on street for $1.25 per hour.
