The sourdough bread is addicting. It's so good you will eat it all. My favorite dish is the Mahi Mahi! The atmosphere is nice and easy. Not too loud and not crowded.

Back to the Bluewater grill. Always visit when I'm here on business. Dependable, good service, good food, a little bit overpriced.

Dear Sheila M, Thank you for your business, the great and the 4 stars! We truly appreciate it and will share with our staff. About the price, ours is "relative price" because what you ordered was not cheap but relative to the market we feel we are priced under market. Again, thank you for coming! More

Mussel/Clam with chorizo starter was good. Waiter very friendly and attentive for 1st 30 mins, took dinner order and delivered starter; then a stall for about 1 hour, no waiter, no food, no explanation. Finally, a manager came by and said that she apologized no food, we got stuck behind a big order but food out soon. Another 15 mins... More

Stopped in for a first time visit during Happy Hour on a Wednesday night. We were pretty early so it was easy to get a great booth in the bar. Everything there was top notch! Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. He had answers to our questions about the food, suggestions on drinks, and a great attitude! We ordered... More

Since before this location opened (when they were located off Sunflower), I've been a fan of Bluewater Grill. From watching USC football in the bar area while eating fish tacos to a full course dinner...the food has never disappointed. The employees are always friendly and helpful. The best seafood restaurant in Orange County.

Overall the menu is solid, as is the preparation and service. Initially we felt the portions were moderate in terms of the price point. For us, this is off-set by their very favorable corkage policy. When you can bring your own bottle(s) of wine, the cost of the meal returns to what might be described as "a value" for a... More

I recently read in the paper that the Bluewater Grill was suppose to be the best Seafood place in OC. My wife and I went there with great expectations and found them to all be dashed. The fish was not only mediocre, but the presentation was so poor as to be laughable. I had the swordfish with tropical fruit salsa... More

Visited Bluewater Grill during OC Restaurant Week, this was my first visit and definitely will not be my last. Ordered the Salmon from British Columbia dinner along with clam chowder. It was an excellent dinner, the atmosphere was comfortable and service was very personable and attentive. I will definitely be returning!
