    We ordered grouper for lunch and the waiter didn’t tell us it would be $29 for a Geouper sandwich! That’s outrageous! Food and atmosphere are feb but c’mon, that should have been told to us.

    everyone loved the grouper sandwiches, really awesome and these folks were from Florida! Had bbq Village ken nachos which I’d had before, not crazy about them. Took a burger home and it was lustily demolished (good)

    Servers are so caring and quick to take care of anyone in the dining room. The team seems to work like a big family. Love the chef's specials both for the entrée and dessert. We shared the iceberg wedge for an appetizer at our table and loved it. Love that the food is freshly made and beautifully presented, not prepackaged food! First class!

    We have a slip in the marina and We’ve made reservations and eaten at Blue Water for a couple of years now. We had issues making reservations then got them to work and who we went in there was a party of ten after us that specified inside dining so we we’re booted to the outside or we could’ve waited for another table to finish. There was a poker run on the lake and we happened to be there at the time all the very loud boats were coming in for their chips. We’ve never had to specify inside or out before, but lesson learned. The waitress and the food were good just feel like the personal touch has been lost at the whole marina.

    Waited for the 5pm menu and they could not make either entree as the had no inventory of the grouper. Chef attempted to substitute redfish for grouper without notifying us. Cannot understand on a menu that highlights grouper that you could not have any on a Saturday evening. Had reservations for 430pm purposely to be able to ensure availability of these dishes. Also a party the had 7pm resvations were seated before us at 430. Very underwhelming experience.

    Called the restaurant, as I had a conflict and needed to move the reservation to 5:15. Staff was so accommodating and made us feel welcomed. The dinner special was magnificent—a rack of lamb with the best squash casserole and grilled asparagus.

    The staff are always wonderful. Great attitude, big smile, and sincere effort to please. And the ambience is wonderful on the lake - the only reason I gave it four instead of five stars, is that they kind of need to upgrade the air-conditioning for the indoor area. It is never quite able to keep up.

    We had reservations at 4:00. We were seated quickly outside in the sun, our server did not take our drink order until 4:20. It was very HOT at 4, this ruined our dinner experience. Food was good. We will not make reservations to be seated outside again.

    We’ve been coming to the restaurant for 8+years Things have changed but not fir the better in some areas. The restaurant cooks seem slow, the food is rarely hot and there are flys in the restaurant the door blowers haven’t been running all Sumer ( or at least when we’ve been there) the waitress staff are friendly and seem to work very hard, no complaints there. The AC is awful not comfortable at all to sit inside and unless there’s a breeze, outside isn’t an option. Not sure we will return for any meals, we will drive to centerhill or Sligo

    Love the way the crab cakes are served differently this year: not heavily breaded or in oil, but moist, fresh and natural. Enjoyed the bed of spiralized squash: creative and yummy. Son got the blackened grouper sandwich and loved it (again). Excellent service, too!

    Enjoyed the special appetizer, "Crabbie Fries" (really XL potato wedges, loaded and with crab. Loved my crab cake entree over the spiralized zucchini and crooknecked squash with tomatoes. Also appreciated the delicious grilled asparagus. For dessert I got the best-ever banana pudding (a special that I hope is made a regular menu item!). Our server, Samantha ("Sam") was upbeat and helpful! We had a great dinner and can heartily recommend!

    Blue Water Grill is great!! The food is delicious, the staff are friendly and efficient, and the view can't be beat!! We love supporting this small business and the hard-working folks who seriously bust their rears at times to accommodate such a fluctuating number of patrons on any given weekend. So much more than one might expect to find on the lake! Be sure to check out the day's specials ;)

    This was my second time to eat at Blue Water Grille. Both times, I came to hear Rockin' Country. The food and service were excellent. We frequented the previous restaurant many years ago when our sons were young. I was afraid I would be disappointed in the "new" restaurant, but I needn't have worried. The atmosphere was relaxed and the servers were friendly and efficient. High fives all around!
