A very nice view! But it ends there. Maybe one of the dirtiest restaurants I have ever been in. Paper towels overflow from the men's room into the host stand. Bathrooms are always dirty. Staff does not care. Look at the doors all around. Dirty and have not been painted in some time. Will this level of attention to detail,... More

The food is very good, the service is quick and attentive. My glass was never empty! Some friends and I rode down on our motorcycles just to have lunch here and it was worth the trip in 97 degree heat!

Terrific salads, seafood and service at this waterfront restaurant. Lots of indoor seating, too, if you like A/C and TV with your food. Nice assortment of healthy and regular fare, salads, ceviche, flatbread.

Food was nice. Wait staff were attentive. Hostesses had difficulty knowing who they were seating and where Loved the view of the water as we dined.

Eating a good meal next to the waterway and large boats. Outside seating can be hot in the summer so eat lunch early or dinner after sundown. They have giant ceiling fans and shades but the shades will diminish the view. usually get Manhattan (RED) chowder and seafood lasagna. The seafood lasagna.is great and we share a serving too.

My wife and I had a great time at Bluewater Waterfront Grill! The food was great and the view was amazing. We particularly enjoyed watching people pull up in their boats to come to the restaurant. Thank you BWG for a great date night at the beach!

We were part of a large work gathering that had travelled here from the Raleigh area. Previously this annual outing had been held at the Oceanic. When asked for a possible alternative, my wife and I suggested the Bluewater Grill. Thankfully we were not disappointed as service was good, the view very nice and the food as good as we... More

I enjoyed my first visit to Bluewater and will certainly come again. It was a gorgeous afternoon on the water with a nice breeze on the outside deck. My seared sea scallops were very good, although slightly salty. Victoria took excellent care of me from start to finish. All in all, a little pricey, but definitely worth the visit.
