We enjoyed our visit to your delicious restaurant so much. We have a camper in Manteo and come visit Nags Head every summer this was the first time we have eaten here. Everything ordered was so tasty and you get quite a lot for the money. Your employer Dwight Haddick I believe was the last name was very friendly and... More

My friend and I are local, but never went here. It was super packed but the service was excellent. The restaurant is really big for being on the water. Very clean and pretty. Expensive but you definitely get what you pay for. Their food and drinks were high quality which surprised me for how busy they were. The bartenders were... More

Love going here for lunch. Great shrimp, seafood platter, seafood lasagne, and coconut shrimp. Appetizers are good sized portions. I sometimes have one instead of an entree. Crab dip is great!

The location was great. The service was good. The food was average. My daughter ordered a shrimp and crab salad and the salad looked as if it was a bag salad from the grocery store. Overpriced.

Good: Alden was our server and he ran our meal like a conductor. The cadence of this serving was fantastic. He fielded our questions, kept our drinks charged and managed to get the kid's dinners out and managed in a way that kept them both happy and quiet. I followed his lead on a recommendation and it was the right... More

The Bluewater has changed hands a number of times from the days of Wally's ... but one thing you cannot take away from the property is the fine location. If you like to watch the boats go by and the machinations of really good captains and/or skippers who have had one too many Pussers. This is a fun place. I've... More

Called ahead for a table so we wouldn't have to wait so long as we had a 4 year old with. Arrived at the restaurant and waited another hour before being seated. There were 6 hostesses at the front desk standing around looking dumbfounded. Once we were seated we had a very good meal. Our waitress was personable and informative.... More

Great location in Wrightsville Beach with top notch food and good drinks. I've never had bad food here and the patio areas are a great place to sit outside and watch the boats. The crab cakes are delicious and the coconut shrimp is good too.

As locals, we have been to this establishment many times and have never been disappointed until this time. My husband and I both had fried seafood platters with shrimp, fish, oysters, fries and slaw. There were 3 oysters on each plate. They were REALLY mushy and nasty. There were 3-4 fish finger type fish nuggets, which were ok. The shrimp... More

Upscale, outdoor, overlooking beautiful Yachts as they come and go. Pricey but look at the view, the decor is interesting and fun, upscale. The wine list is fair and to sit on the outside deck overlooking the docks is very entertaining and romantic.

Thank Rhonda M
