We always eat here once or twice on our annual Father’s Day weekend in Catalina. Fair prices for seafood on an island and good kids menu. Love the waterfront location and rarely ever have to wait for a seat.More

Bluewater Grill is part of a chain of seafood restaurants. The food is a bit inconsistent, especially in winter. But when the weather permits, drinks and appetizers on the waterfront deck is a great way to spend an evening.More
