Food was just so so. Nothing to brag about. We had mahi mahi with a fruit salsa. If it hadn’t been for the fruit salsa, the fish would have been pretty bland. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dessert was fairly good - probably the creek...More

We were surprised by how many of the tables were indoors. The outdoor tables are on the sides (near the parking lots) and not on the ocean. The food was very fresh. The scallops with grits was the standout dish. The choose your fish/sides/sauce offered...More

Outstanding from the moment we walked in to the time we left. We passed on the appetizers because we wanted to have dessert, the often missed menu item. Mud pie and key lime pie were both so good. I had the key lime pie which...More

Bluewater Boathouse Seafood was fantastic. The ceviche was excellent. We also enjoyed the lobster roll. I must mention the chocolate lava cake-delicious. The presentation was excellent and the service was wonderful. Indoor and outdoor seating was available. A nice lunch.More

A group of us had dinner here last night. The food was good and the seafood was fresh, but the portions are modest and the prices high. We went last year and thought it was better then.

It is at the marina and was quite casual for lunch when we dined there. It is interesting that decades ago, it was once the boathouse for the nearby Hotel Del Coranado.
