“Great Dinner at Bluewater Grill Wrightsville Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

I took my family to The Bluewater Grill while visiting Carolina Beach last summer. It is a short drive to Wrightsville Beach. The restaurant is located in a marina area as you enter the beach. It overlooks the marina, and there is an abundance of outdoor seating. I prefer to go there at dinner for the atmosphere overlooking the water.
I had a one of their grilled fish selections, and my step-daughter had their popcorn shrimp. Her friend had a seafood platter, and all of them were excellent. My wife doesn’t eat seafood, so she had one of their non-seafood dishes and was quite pleased. Overall, it is a great experience, and I would recommend it to anyone in the area.

“Great crab dip.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

Casual but upscale. This place has a nice bar scene but is nice enough to take the parents when they're in town.

“Seafood Lasagna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

I give this an excellent rating for one reason....the seafood lasagna. I come here once a year and only get this dish (well...and a salad). Around $20 with a salad. They say they load it with seafood and they really do. It is a lot of food but oh so tasty. The other people I was with enjoyed their dinners also, but I just can not tell you about them as I did not get a taste. The location is nice on the waterway,...about a mile from the beach.
