I have been here ten times , I must say have not had one dish that I would call special. When BWG is ranked #1 and Ocean Grill is #4. It must be hard to move up the the culinary ladder when the drive is gone. What happened , Millsboro ? Free tip no on job training for bartenders. Bottom... More

Was visiting my brother and sister-in-law and they took us to the "Blue Water Grill". We started with bacon wrapped scallops and crab dip - YUM! My husband is the foodie and knows his seafood. He loved the bacon wrapped scallops. Perfect texture and taste. Crab dip is something that we try in most seafood restaurants. We had ordered it... More

We have always been more than pleased with the menu selections, unique pairings and freshness of the food. The quaintness of an old fashioned store front venue adds to the charm of your meal. Happy to have this spot within 20 minutes of our home to beat the seasonal crowds of the beach area.

Stopped in her after an Indian River vs Polytech HS volleyball game. This place was recommended by two friends. I'm glad I listened. The food was so delicious! Shrimp and scallops crab imperial was mine. The filet was my daughter's meal. All dishes were reasonably priced. Only downside was someone bought the last blueberry creme brûlée before I got one....

My husband and I visited the Blue Water Grill last year and didn't really care for it. Since this restaurant is close to our home and featured as a "locals favorite" eatery we decided to try it again as sometimes you just hit someplace wrong the first time. Beside the convenience of location, the atmosphere in the Blue Water is... More

I am so sorry to hear this. The second time, too. I wish you had asked to speak to a manager so we could have had an opportunity to make your experience more enjoyable. It is of course difficult to hear so many negative comments about one experience especially when we spend so much time and effort in preparing scratch... More

When its good it is good - I have great dinners here, the seafood is very good. The employees are attentive. Lunch can go either way...last visit I had to send the French onion soup back twice because it was cold both times. Another visit at lunch we walked away disappointed. Dinner service has always been consistently good. Restaurant can... More

Food was good. They also have a nice happy hour. My only problem with the place is that it is very loud.

This was my second visit to this establishment and it was very good. Our Fun Bowl group is always looking for something different for Linner( combo lunch and dinner). They were able to take our group and served us in a timely manner and the food was good.

Looking for a local place where the locals frequent then Blue Water Grill in Millsboro, DE is the place to go. Fresh seafood, steaks, pasta they have it all. Great specials and large portions will ensure you don't leave hungry. Steaks were cooked perfectly, crab cakes were delicious and full of crab. Rajun Cajun pasta had a nice zing and... More
