Just had a late lunch at Blue Water and was, once again, thoroughly impressed not only with the exceptional food (had the crab and medium shrimp cocktail) but with the wait staff and the kitchen staff - they are troopers!! Those lines to get in can be huge but they just keep on truckin' and cranking out terrific, fresh seafood. The fish and chips are terrific and the yellowtail salad was killer.

Hard to explain just how fine this place is..... you do have to stand in line to order but the food came rapidly and superbly. I think anyone likeing fish and seafood could do no better than this place for its value.

Stopped by for lunch on biz trip. A bit of a wait but very, very much worth it. Don’t usually get fantastic fish in Texas and this was just that! Highly recommend!! Fantastic selection of Ballast in draft and unbeatable fish at reasonable prices! I had the grilled halibut plate with lemon garlic butter...just say yes!

Lots of options on how to have your fish/seafood prepared. So many choices and all is fresh. Nice covered patio area to eat outside. Order at the counter and they deliver to your table. As the sign says it is not "fast food" but it is worth the wait.

Wow what great food. Prices are outstanding. Heated in line for 20min and for our food for about 30 but well worth the wait. Garlic bread was the best I have had. I had ciavotta soup. I think that was the name. Loved it. I almost got the shark salad and may next time.
