Under new ownership and menu. Great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. Jordan, our server, was friendly, efficient and a lot of fun. Overall a wonderful experience at a very good resturant. I will eat there again.

This was truly a wonderful place to eat. The fish was the best and my husband had alligator tail and it was good too. The place (we ate on the bar side) was quaint and the staff was wonderful.

Ordered the whitefish, it was terrible. Tasted very old. Will not go back! Service was slow, had to wait I will check even though most of the tables were empty.

This is a gem of a resturant. It is expensive to eat here, but the food does not dissapoint. Located in the right spot from the hotels.

First and last visit. I should have been skeptical when there was only one car in the parking lot at dinner time, 7:00 p.m. The menu is quite limited. Dinner plates are pricey compared to other places in Mackinaw City. I ordered the quesadilla and it was very dry. My friend ordered the burger because it was one of the... More

This is the first time we had gone to the Blue Water Grill. We always like to try a new place to eat. Food was ok, not like other fish we have had. I got the perch and my niece got the cod. Perch was good, cod was ok. Fries were good. We sat outside and there was live music... More

This place is kind of a hot mess. We sat at the bar which was probably a good choice because the bartender was super friendly and nice to visit with. I ordered white fish tacos and my husband got coconut shrimp. They were out of lemon pepper for the fiscal tacos but didn't have anther non-spicy choice. The other guy... More

Ordered chicken tenders, they were partially burnt with absolutely no taste. It was apparent they were cooked in old oil. I reordered beef nachos. They had no beef. I ordered chicken nachos, and I really don't know how you can mess up chicken nachos but they did a really good of it. The nachos were tasteless, with tomato pieces, small... More

It was somewhat entertaining and comical to watch the completely unorganized wait staff, who kept bumping into each other, spilling utensils,drinks, and then yelling at each other within earshot of the customers. The host was a young man who seemed to be very frantic as he was practically running back and forth, in and out the door. Our very young... More
