We went to thier opening week in Crystal
Cove and were not disappointed. Missed all the art work and stained glass from the Melrose location, but this one will take on it's own personality as time goes on. It's the same quality menu and we look forward to many nice evenings with friends at the new location

First time we were invited In Blue Water Bay restaurant in February 2012. we met friends. Next to the bar was nice music, nt loud. and you know how it usually works: if you like it , you will try to make it ones again. So last week we were on our way back from horse show in Ocala and have chance and opportunity to visit this lovely place . even it was Saturday around 5 PM, crowdy , we were offered good seats. We had buffet: variety of sea food( my favorite shrimps and sushi, ummm!) and meat as well .Good service( yes ,our waitress asked what kind of butter we prefer and etc) smiling and polite staff. Besides, the location of the restaurant very convenient: the intersection of Interstate 26 and 21 .

Traveling central Florida, Googled a restaurant. Saw this ones web site so we turned left and there it was. Walked in and enjoyed the ambiance right away. It was Sunday so they had a brunch. Their brunch menu looked 4 Star but we ordered Angus hamburgers for 7.95. They came with fries or black beans & rice. Ordered one of each. Now that was a hamburger. Juicy, fries were perfect and the Bb and rice very good. They informed us of there buffet on the weekends with music. Will defiantly be back for that. This gem
Is worth the drive!!

Drove to Melrose to try out the Blue Water Bay. Service was poor. Had to ask for flatware, drinks, etc. Waitress didn't seem to want to work the day we were there. It was a holiday so maybe she wanted to be off like the rest of us! The food was marginal at best. Nothing special - no great flavors and we had to ask for things to be recooked since they weren't crispy enough. Not bad, but not great. Just an average restaurant.

We come from families who were in the shrimp business. This is the best fried shrimp you can find. So fresh and well cooked that you have to be careful about not eating part of the tail. You don't have to "squeeze" the last bit of shrimp meat out of the tail. The service was excellent. Politely checking at just the right times. It was, as if, "I think I would like...." There someone was asking if they could help. Blue Water Bay is one of those - I cannot miss events, when you are in the area you FIND a way to get there. Thank you for a very enjoyable experience.
