“Good value party menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

I retired this year, after 20 years of service and understandably my colleagues, friends and myself wanted to mark the occasion with a retirement party and when we looked around for an affordable option we found Bluewater Pizza, which offers a $26.95 per person party menu, which includes a selection of crusts, salads and a selection of wood-fired pizzas. An additional $5 gets you a margarita.

So on February 16th, a booked party of about 30 arrived to celebrate. Some of the guests didn't come, but there were also a few "gatecrashers". Numbers varied during the night, with some early departures and late arrivals.

The food arrived fairly irregularly and was not well paced, but the staff were available and not intrusive, which is exactly what one wants at a party.
Many restaurants struggle with large parties, but this restaurant seemed to cope well.

Food was OK and plentiful, but not spectacular, as one expects set menus to be- but the pizza was certainly much better than the average Pizza Hut, Domino's or Eagle Boy. There are better pizza available in Newcastle, although few places offer a waterfont dine-in option and this suited the evening perfectly. There is also easy access to nearby establishments for before and after dinner drinks, which for my colleagues seems to be essential.

A great time was had by all, with a casual relaxed evening, aided by the venue and its associated features.

Thanks to Bluewater Pizza for making my retirement party an enjoyable experience!

Enjoyed a crisp Hunter Valley SSB and gourmet pizza on the waterfront. Service was prompt on a busy Sunday.

“Always Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is one of our favourite places to eat - we always go here for special occasions. The food is delicious, and lots of variety of toppings - love the Montana pizza! The salads as nice simple and clean, and the starter crusts are yummy and a nice spin on the usual garlic bread. Never had a bad experience here, and the price it quite adequate, especially for what you get. Highly recommended!

“Good food good service friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

An impromptu lunch led me and my sisters here one Saturday. We shared two pizzas between the four of us and a bottle of wine. The waitress was lovely and other guests all looked very happy too not having to wait too long for service and sharing a lovely space.
