My brother in law took me to this place and I knew it instantly from DDD. We got there about 11:30am and there was just a small line. Ordered a beer battered lobster taco and the mahi mahi taco. Both were great. The mahi was cooked perfectly....nice and moist. The lobster was just a little more tasty because of the batter and the sauce. I did spice up the mahi taco with hot sauce. The store has seafood to buy and take home. A little pricey, but it all looks really fresh.

Amazing Fish Tacos. I ordered the special which was a beer batter cod fish taco. This thing was massive for only $5 wow. Also went at 2pm on a Thursday. There was no line.

You have to endure long lines at almost any time of the day. But, if you can wait it is worth it for fresh seafood at a reasonable price. Not cheap, but not expensive.

Great deal on a dozen fresh oysters. Ahi fish tacos are another favorite of ours. All fish available as a sandwich, salad or dinner. Take out phone orders a way to beat the order line.

My wife and I were visiting our son in San Diego and the Blue Water was recommended on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives (Triple D) on the Food Network. It was all it was supposed to be, and more. When you walk in, there is a seafood case with all the fresh seafood on display. There is no doubt that it's fresh, and no doubt about what they have that night. Pick what you want, walk up to the ordering desk (or wait in the line that can be quite long) and place your order. They stake out a table and wait for a server to call your name and bring your food. We had lobster bisque that was wonderful, fried calamari that was as good as it get (not chewy at all), and some amazing Scottish salmon and Mahi Mahi. Get there early, or wait in line, but either way it's worth the trip.
