We have gone there three times this winter and settled on fish tacos as the food to go to. I had fired oysters one time and they were OK . Five of us usually order Fish Tacos and they are very good. Not quite as good as the Grouper fish tacos served at Somewhere in the Turks and Caicos, but... More

This is the best place for watching the boats pass by as you have drinks and dinner. Fun staff, great food. Make sure to check out their upstairs patio weather permitting.

The picture says it all. The menu claims, "a scratch kitchen" - it is not even close. Yes the views are great but the food is seriously not on par. It is essentially a fast food place with a good view. I would not go back.

Sat on the second floor for view of sunset! Great Happy Hour drinks, and decent dinner choices. Wait staff was excellent and even chatted with owner. Everyone made us feel welcome. Recommend for an informal dinner dining option.

Because we were up on the second floor by a window, we had a birds eye view of the water, the Pier and the gorgeous palm trees! This is a really cute place with a large bar upstairs with lots of TV's to view sports. The memorabilia on the walls are fun to look at. The staff are very welcoming... More

My wife and I went here for dinner one evening of our stay and enjoyed this place. There is a row of tables upstairs along the windows that offers a view of the ocean and the sunset from certain areas. The bar was lively and the food was decent and priced well. My wife enjoyed her steamed shrimp and the... More

This was my first experience with The Blue Water and it will not be my last. The menu has something for everyone including fresh seafood, home-style cooking, and Mexican. We sat on the second floor and the view of the ocean was spectacular. The young lady that took care of us was amazing. She gave several recommendations and they were... More

Four of us went to the Blue Water Café on St Simons for lunch on Feb 4, 2017. We enjoy sitting on the open air area on the second floor but the 4th was cool and very windy so we had our meal at a window with a great view. We ordered one fish ciabatta, one soft shell po’ boy,... More
