“Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We had nice early dinner on the deck. Nice view. Good service. Adequate food. The server loves the island and gave us several tips of things to do. Restaurant seemed to be the hop pong place.

We would return.

“Little slice of heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch while waiting for our hotel to open up. Very eat to rate, because everything was so good!! Wonderful drink specials with island flare. The best seafood I've had in a while. We ate out on the patio, which is a must because it was so perfect. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

On the recommendation of a local, my wife, son and I had lunch at Bluewater. Overall the food was good but my sashimi scallop appetizer was great! Nice view. Some guy came by with a trained Harris hawk which I suppose was to scare away the sea gulls from the little beach nearby.

“Kobe Bryant took his wife here on Valentines Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Newly opened under new name and management. Stopped in for lunch, bit chilly on outside decks so they tried to bring in heaters just didn't have wind blowing right way to be effective. Food was good, especially the grilled artichoke! Heard this place was the bomb and it was good but you can't beat the food at Steves Steakhouse across the street. It was a busy weekend and they seemed short staffed as it wasn't prime tourist season yet to be fully staffed. Nice waterside dining, would go back.

“Terrific Seafood and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

We ate here both nights we were on the island. It has a great atmosphere, both inside and out. When we sat outside the second night, the heat lamps made it very comfortable for us, as did the blankets they provide in case you feel a bit chilly. The service was attentive and we felt very welcome.

The seafood was very fresh, and they offer many preparation options, so that you can customize your meal. We also enjoyed their soups: clam chowder the first night, while the second night we had their special soup, which was a wild mushroom and green onion soup. Their sourdough bread is utterly addictive, despite the fact that I'm not a big sourdough fan.
