We 3 couples arrived a few minutes late, but they accommodated us with no problem. The service was prompt and attentive without being overbearing. While generally focused on seafood, there were plenty of other choices. And the tastes were absolutely TOP DRAWER! Will return often.

Great restaurant but since we only go during market it seems to always be packed. The food is very good and the staff is excellent.

We often go to Blue Water and sit in the bar area for a drink and an informal meal of great food. We love the flash fried oysters! Salad, soups, and short-ribs are also favorites.

Owner/Chef Paul Riggan is serving an artistically infused menu with creations influenced from French, Asian, Caribbean and low country cuisines. Potato Crusted Salmon, a delectable Stealhead Carolina Trout as well as nightly specials await your selection. Feel free to look through the menus section to see the wide variety of food offered. Wonderful cuisines which range from Veal Crostini to a very tasty BBQ Duck Confit served over smoked cheddar polenta, locally grown collard greens and finished with a tangy barbecue sauce. Blue Water Grilled also offers a wide variety of non-seafood entrees including beef tenderloin.
