We made reservations for 2, arrived to only sit there for 45 minutes waiting. Evidently there was NO seating for 2 in the entire restaurant. Only seating for large groups of people were available. We have never had a problem waiting this long for a table. When we were finally seated we were crammed into a corner that you could... More

This is my fourth time here and the food hasn't disappointed yet, except for the octopus that seemed to have been left on the grill for a tad too long. The food is fresh and the selection is wide. It's also BYOB. If you're coming on the weekend make sure you get a reservation as it does get pretty crowded... More

I have eaten at Blue Water Seafood several times and have never been disappointed. The quality of the main dishes are excellent and so is their presentation. The service is above average and the atmosphere is nicer since the restaurant has been redone. The restaurant can be a little noisy.

We haven't been there in a long time. We went with two other couples last night. Parking was always difficult so we were pleased to find out that they have valet service now. The place was very crowded. Most importantly, our meals were outstanding. Expansive menu. Our table had shrimp, tuna, and salmon meals. The taste was excellent, the portions... More

My husband and I went to Blue Water Seafood with another couple to celebrate my birthday. The noise level was so high that conversation was impossible. When we approached the restaurant, the noise was so loud we considered not keeping our reservation. The food was very good and very well prepared. The prices for specials seemed excessive. The dessert selection... More

If we want a good fresh fish dinner we visit Blue Water Seafood. They always have very good specials and good size portions. The prices are reasonable. The service is hit and miss on a Saturday night. They sometimes forget to come back and need to get their attention. We still visit as the food is good.

Love this restaurant, only wish it was bigger! Food is excellent, large menu so everyone can find something. Most of my family loves seafood and everyone left extremely satisfied. My brother had the steak and couldn't find anything bad to say lol. Another great thing is that it is byob. When there are larger parties it gets loud, wish it... More

Modest exterior, elegant interior. The food is outstanding and the welcome is warm. Don't miss the crabcakes and the lobster bisque. Great menu. Servings are generous and prepared and seasoned perfectly. Highly recommended.
