Also own Stefano's and California Grill down the street. Always good food and good service. However, when they tell you how long it will be to wait for a table, take it with a grain of salt. The last two times I was there they...More

Open air dining on LBI is not that common. Blue Water may have been the first to offer it. Being across from a beach/yacht club adds to I am at the beach feeling.

We stopped in midday for lunch and were a little disappointed. The atmosphere was on point for LBI, the staff was good. The food on the other hand was just so so! The two of us ordered from the lunch special menu. Lobster club and...More

We took our grandchildren here while visiting LBI. They have chicken fingers for the kids and the alduts had fish dinners. The chowder is very good too. This was our second visit and the kids and we like it! Service is very good too!

I saw children - the way you do in high brow restaurants. If I had my niece with me (she's 7) I'd sit outside so she could feel more relaxed. Inside is intimate. There are better places to bring children - here's where you... More
