Fell upon this restaurant by accident, was great! The food was delicious, I had white fish Cajun style. There is a wine special with bottles half off, Jordan waited on us and was awesome! We also had fun with the other couples there and even shared some wine with them. Would definitely come again!

Tried this little bar/grill our last night in Mackinaw and while the food was good, the service was horrible. We had to ask if we could be seated. We waited nearly an hour for our food. The only waitress was confused about where to bring the food. She said the person who took our order put the wrong table #... More

The sandwich wraps were awesome, fries great, burgers great. Everything was good, no complaints on the food except a little pricey for our large family. Right across from our hotel.

Under new ownership and menu. Great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. Jordan, our server, was friendly, efficient and a lot of fun. Overall a wonderful experience at a very good resturant. I will eat there again.

This was truly a wonderful place to eat. The fish was the best and my husband had alligator tail and it was good too. The place (we ate on the bar side) was quaint and the staff was wonderful.

Ordered the whitefish, it was terrible. Tasted very old. Will not go back! Service was slow, had to wait I will check even though most of the tables were empty.

First and last visit. I should have been skeptical when there was only one car in the parking lot at dinner time, 7:00 p.m. The menu is quite limited. Dinner plates are pricey compared to other places in Mackinaw City. I ordered the quesadilla and it was very dry. My friend ordered the burger because it was one of the... More

This is the first time we had gone to the Blue Water Grill. We always like to try a new place to eat. Food was ok, not like other fish we have had. I got the perch and my niece got the cod. Perch was good, cod was ok. Fries were good. We sat outside and there was live music... More
