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

My husband and I have patronized the Blue Water Grill many times in the three years we've lived in Millsboro and we've yet to be disappointed in a meal. We've visited for lunch (great sandwiches and salads - try the sweet potato fries if only for the yummy accompanying sauce), dinner(my favorite is the chicken roulade, breasts wrapped in bacon...

Came here on recommendation from TripAdvisor and it lives up to the hype! Our family of 6 was able to call ahead and be seated without a wait. Historic & trendy atmosphere. Excellent customer service! Kelsey is an excellent waitress! We ordered the meatloaf (4.5/5, would have been 5 if mashers had gravy), filet and crab cake (5/5), rajun cajun... More

We were very pleasantly surprised at our very good meal at this little restaurant hiding in Millsboro, DE! Eclectic, reasonably trendy menu using fresh, locally available ingredients ably prepared and served in a friendly, laid-back environment. Both my husband and I were thrilled to find soft-shelled crabs on their menu ... and they were delicious! Having been away from Delaware... More

Love to stop in at the Blue Water Grill. Great food and interesting old building. Great bar too. All of the sandwiches are good, no one has complained about not getting enough to eat! Good service too, meals are prepared after you order, so wait time is longer due to being prepared to your specification! Enjoy a drink while you... More

The food is great and the service is excellent. The first time we came out and sat at the bar to share a meal at happy hour. The wings are excellent and the grapefruit crushes were awesome. The chicken remoulade was delicious. We went back later that week with the kids for a complete meal, including excellent scallops wrapped in... More
