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.

I absolutely love the oysters there!!! The rest of the menu is pretty good too. Its BYOB. My favorite part is that you can sit outside and its very relaxing. Inside seems to get loud when the place is busy. Very nice ambience inside and out.

This is a nice little seafood restaurant. It is expensive but the food is good. We went there a couple of times and the food is always good.

We are not in New York City , I don't understand why I restaurant in east Brunswick NJ think they can charge NYC prices. The food is good but not worth the prices they are charging. The atmosphere and decor needs a face lift.

Food and service are always 5 star. Atmosphere is great. The fresh seafood is cooked to order. Try the Oysters Rockefeller!

The food here is great, the decor pleasant, the service attentive, and the prices reasonable. I would have given this restaurant a 5 except for the cacophony. There's something wrong with the acoustics in the building - the problem isn't obvious, and there are heavy drapes which should have dampened the sound. We couldn't hear ourselves think, so we ate...
