This sand dab fish was a new variety for us. Very mild flavor. This seafood restaurant has a very romantic seaside setting. Ocean views from every seat. Friendly servers. Perfect seaside restaurant. Wish I'd made a photo.

Went here on a Wednesday for dinner, food was well served, food and wine recommendations were good. The serving staff were solicitous without crowding. We sat on the edge of the outside patio and it did get a bit chilly toward the end of our meal, should have worn a heavier jacket. The only downside was the ladies room, not... More

This was our first choice for dinner on the island. Great views and lots of seating, but we had to wait for 20 minutes. Menu looked great, but there were no daily specials and it was Friday night!

The view from this restaurant is spectacular. There is a large outdoor dining area from which you can view the harbor and the beach. The wait staff is very attentive. The food is fine, but not nearly as good as their restaurant in Newport Beach which has the same menu.

Had lunch one day and enjoyed the tuna poke and a white sangria....delicious ! Returned for dinner the next night. Sangria still delicious but the sand dab was swimming in butter and the Fisherman' platter was too much deep fried food. Service was good and professional.

We miss the Busy Bee (used to occupy this space) but Bluewater is much better. It is THE place to go for seafood in Avalon. We we there last month and had a lovely meal with friends.

Eating fresh fish overlooking the water on the pier is a treat! I loved feeling I was on an island enjoying outdoor dining at this casual, high quality food restaurant.

Went here as part of the Taste of Catalina Food Tours with a friend. We had crab cakes, clam chowder and beer on the deck. Food was delicious and the view is one of the best in Avalon.
