Wonderful service. Best Bloody Mary's. Clam chowder to hum for. Hubby had the fish and chips and I had the salmon blackened. Ask to sit in Jenny's section for the happiest service. Highly recommend.More

This is my favorite restaurant in Newport Beach. We had lunch on the deck in beautiful weather. The wine was great, bread was delicious, and my salmon dish with rice and veggies was fabulous. The service was tops. I can't say enough about it.More

Enjoyed a fabulous meal at the Bluewater Grill, served by the lovely Tina. We shared scallops and calamari as a starter, both these meals were simply delicious. Then enjoyed Barramundi as recommended by Tina, this did not disappoint. Thank you for a wonderful meal.More
