Our family of 5 ate at Blue Water Seafood after a long (but fun) day at the zoo. We didn't enjoy the long wait but we all thought it was worth it for the wonderful fish. We ate fish and chips, scallop taco, poke, fish stew, and the wonderful clam chowder. We thought the clam chowder and scallops were maybe... More

We decided to try out this restaurant while visiting San Diego after seeing it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, reading its great online reviews, and also from recommendations of our Uber drivers. Yes, there is typically a line, especially on a Saturday night, but I promise, it is so worth the wait! Their seafood is so fresh and reasonably priced!... More

We are from the Midwest and always try to stop at Blue Water for seafood when we come to San Diego. Despite the long lines, the fresh seafood is worth the wait. However, I would skip the clam chowder.

My wife and I came to San Diego for 9 days. We visited Blue Water because of the high Trip Advisor rating. It was our first stop and last stop. Definitely the best food we had in San Diego. We loved the Mahi Mahi teriyaki salad or plate. Really light. Cooked perfectly. We also liked the medium shrimp cocktail and... More

Long line and wait to get in, however the food was worth the wait. Had delicious fish and chips plus clam chowder. Spoke with many customers who often come to this facility, I had many suggestions for dinner. Everyone had a favorite. My first time!! Will not be my last.

This restaurant was recommended by a local. Definitely a great restaurant with reasonable prices. I have food allergies and was able to eat here with no issues. I had the grilled Ahi Tuna with jasmine rice and salad. Very large portions, and great taste. Choice of toppings.We will visit again, next time were in town.

Fresh fish and seafood. Expect a short wait, but well worth it. A variety of options. You will not be disappointed. I will definitely go again on future visits.
