Sometimes at night I crave this place

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... read 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.

The seafood selection was fantastic and fresh. One thing I didn't like is that you can not sit at a table until you have placed your order at the counter. Also, this place is quite small. Although they have patio seating, there really isn't enough room to accommodate huge parties. Like most places we visited in San Diego, parking was... More

We've been to Blue Water several times. The food is incredible, and the prices are not bad at all. You may have a hard time finding a seat, but that's because the food is so delicious. Highly recommended.

We have been coming here for a while and just had lunch. We were a little apprehensive showing up right at the lunch hour but the line wasn't bad. We both ordered the medium shrimp and crab salad. The shrimp was cooked just right, was plentiful and very fresh. The crab was the same. Wait time for the food was... More

We stopped by on a visit to San Diego and it was well worth it. I had the red snapper plate, wife had a shrimp taco, and kids had a grilled cheese. Everything was cooked to order, was fresh, and very tasty. Busy and small but great food.

The fish tacos are amazing, as is the sashimi. You will probably wait in line to order, but DO NOT WORRY. The food and atmosphere are well worth the time you'll spend perusing the menu. Included is a picture of two fish tacos, with my hand for scale. The don't mess around!

We waited in line for about 20 minutes to place our order but that gave us plenty of time to check out the food as the waitresses passed by. We ordered calamari, wahoo taco, lobster taco and fish n chips. The lobster was heavily beer battered so you lost the lobster in the batter. The other food was fresh and... More
