“Breakfast is better than lunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went to Blue Water at brunch time because the Downrigger was closed from a fire. They serve breakfast until 2. I am a fan of chicken fried steak and the breakfast plate was very good with two eggs, homefries, a bisquit, and a steak covered with good gravy. The had a good variety of condiments and I liked the Tiger Chili sauce. My wife had the shrimp basket which was OK but not great--six shrimps and a lot of coated fries with good tartar sauce. Service was good and the view was excellent. The price was somewhat high but this is the San Juan Islands.

“Waste of time and money”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Food was terrible, they seem to think large portions overcomes lousy food. They should stick to a simple menu and do it well rather than try to have an eclectic menu with dishes done poorly. Unclean, slow inattentive service, and incorrect orders - don't waste your time and money here despite the convenient location.

“Good Food....great mojitos!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We dined here two nights. Food was good, service was good...eat outside though...inside seating was a little warm. Outside tables have a nice view and are just across the street from the ice cream shop! Mango mojitos were especially yummy!

“dont spend your $”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Food was poor - they should stick to 1 type of food and do it well rather than try to have an eclectic menu with dishes done poorly, unclean tables/plastic glasses, slow inattentive service - don't spend your money here despite the convenient location.

Don't wait for a table if the weather is good, head out to the deck. Food was good.nice fried oysters and my vegetarian wife found lots on the menu to please her. Good happy hour prices after 2.
