This is a small restaurant, so make reservation. Tables are a little tight together but you can talk to your other dinners. Servers were excellent. All dishes were deliciously made.

I am usually very open to a restaurant where the chef presents dishes which are unique in their presentation and taste. While I think some of the uniqueness of the food you get at Blue Water Seafood works for the most part I got a question why. I probably should have asked what seasonings the chef used on the food...

The decor, service, location and food were all excellent. The taste of the food was outstanding as was presentation. The only reason I could not give a top rating is that the price was very high. We attended for lunch and they had a lunch menu. That was good, but the prices were in line with a NYC dinner menu.... More

In the past 3 years, I have been to Blue Water 7-8 times. My next bad meal will be the first ... always consistent, high quality seafood. I have NEVER had a bad meal..... and it is a BYOB establishment!! The only "negatives" to this restaurant are: 1) It can be loud at times and 2) reservations can get messed... More

Service and food fabulous. BYOB. Slightly noisy for conversation. Small restaurant so be sure to make a reservation. Seafood is very fresh and delicious. Some land lover options.

I loved my meal and so did the other couples we went with. We all felt like we had to yell at each other to converse because it was so loud in the crowded small room. If food is the focus of your outing go there. If quiet conversation and catching up with friends is your objective, don't go.

We went here on a Saturday night, reservation was for 7:30. We were not seated until after 8 pm. The din in the dining room was nearly unbearable. We had to shout to hear one another, and of course that's what everyone was doing, which is why it was so loud! But the acoustics of the place exacerbated it -... More
