Nice street atmosphere and dog friendly. Everything else is a pass / split Paella with my wife - tiny portion with nothing but rice. Lobster Bisque was good. Couple next to our table were comped their dinner to numerous mistakes.

Great food. Variety on Menu. Sit outside at happy hour for best prices and a relaxing atmosphere. Drinks great. Plate big and full of food.

Walked in and it was inviting but stood at door for awhile to get seated even with several open tables. Service very slow. Just didn't feel like a priority but server was very nice and friendly. Seemed understaffed for dinner time. Food decent.

Visiting Chattanooga on a tour, great town for bars and restaurants. This was one of several recommended by the hotel and coincidentally the first one we came to this evening. Craft beers brewed on the premises, sports on TV, got to be worth a beer or two. Great waiter offered a discount for eating. Bar service great then we moved... More

I visited on a week night with some work friends. My food was lukewarm including my lobster bisque. Not good. I have eaten here before and hopefully this was just a bad night.

Enjoyed dinner at Blue Water Grill. Once we managed to get seated dinner went well. However, they seemed to be having a problem with managing seating. We arrived at 7:25 with a 7:30 Open Table reservation and were not seated until 7:45. I know at least one other party in the waiting area also waited about the same amount of... More

First arrived 15 min before reservation, place was half full and we still had to wait 15 minutes. Seated with no silverware, and given those after we received cold lobster bisque. Great menu, food was served and wasn't hot. Lukewarm at best. It wasn't busy! Expected more. Had to send food back several times. Wife took final hot food home.... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and both ordered salads with salmon. The salmon was wonderful, wish we would have ordered more! The place inside is really cute also, and in convenient location. I would definitely recommend going here.
