    We had the Alaskan crab legs, the trout from Idaho and sea scallops. Other than a tiny bit of grit in the scallops, the meal was impeccable! Very cozy restaurant and not too loud. Easy parking. Nice staff.

    I have been here before, but not for a few years. I have always liked this restaurant, but this time I really loved this restaurant. The Host and the Server made us feel very special. The menu for lunch is large and we had wonderful choices. Two of us had the Crab BLTA, which was really a perfect sandwich with the best cole slaw I have ever had. Another person had the Lobster Roll. It looked great and she loved it. Our fourth diner had the swordfish tacos. WOW! Huge tacos and they looked delicious. She ate every bite and was very happy. They brought us a complimentary dessert for birthdays, a beautiful creme brûlée. Our seating was comfortable. It was busy at lunchtime, but very quiet. We just had the very best time. Thank you so much!

    Black Cod was good size portion and a reasonable price. The fisherman's platter was all fried, small portions and not a good choice. Mostly over cooked and dry. Not a good value. There are many better choices on menu. Overall a good restaurant if you want fish.

    My spouse and I really like the Bluewater grill The problem is the service, especially some of the old time servers that have been there forever. They have such an attitude that it ended up ruining our beautiful Valentines evening. We were ignored by the server as she walked by us three times when we first came in When we ordered bread was delivered, but we asked again for some more bread, and she brought it to the table, dropped it abruptly and left The same with the bill, dropped it on the table and walked away We were quite shocked because not only being Valentines. It was our anniversary and when we asked about whether they do something special, they said well since you belong to the online club they took off $10, so that’s all we do! We were quite shocked, disappointed in the service, even though the food was quite good!

    We have always enjoyed dining at B.W. Grill from there old place and now the new place. They have the best New England clam chowder soup. Most of their fish is flown in daily. It is a must try if you haven’t been there.

    The Bluewater Grill stands out because of its wide variety of seafood offerings. I find it hard to identify another restaurant in greater Phoenix with such a broad and diverse offering. Our our four diners all enjoyed a mix of dishes. Each found his or her dinner satisfying. We identified some menu offerings we would order again. The Bluewater Grill is not outstanding, but it fulfills is culinary mission with solid efforts at all levels of its delivery chain. We will be back.

    Once again, Bluewater Grill met all our expectations. We had a 4:30 dinner reservation on Valentine's Day and the restaurant was close to full when we arrived. The manager, Jeff, showed us to our table. Lari was our server. She did a great job explaining how certain items that we were considering were prepared. My husband ordered the walleye, the special of the evening and I ordered the baked haddock. Both entrees were perfect. The fish was moist and flaky. The scalloped potatoes and fresh vegetables (green beans and asparagus) were delicious. As we did at our last visit, we shared the wonderful key lime pie for dessert. Bluewater Grill has become one of our favorite restaurants. The prices are reasonable and the food and service excellent.

    We’ve eaten here several times, and the food and service have always been great. The place is not trendy or flashy, but it is quiet, relaxing, and consistent. It’s not cheap, but the prices are commensurate with the quality.

    Lovely Madison was our excellent server. Extensive menu featuring seafood. Orders in and food out rapidly. While food was good to very good, nothing over the top. And by that we mean of all the dishes we ordered, we have had better versions. the New England clam chowder was very well done, not too thick and full of clams. This dish alone makes me want to come back! Caesar side salad was almost a dinner in itself, perfectly dressed with a nice tang. Lobster roll- hot lobster somewhat dry, but comes with a side of drawn butter, which it needs. Companion's bouillabaisse loaded with seafood, but we both commented the broth seemed one-dimensional. We kept re-tasting to try and figure out what was missing. Still not certain... Creme Brulee split with partner...it is good, but lacked some fatty creaminess and had a slight grit of unincorporated sugar. We will be back, there are menu items we missed that we want to explore!

    Unfortunately the fried clams were significantly over cooked. I have had in the past and they were perfect. I will chalk it up to a chef 👨‍🍳 mistake. Hope it's better next time.

    We enjoyed our evening at Bluewater Grill. The service was attentive and our waitress was very knowledgeable. The 4 of us ordered 4 different entrees and everyone was pleased. Many varieties of delicious, fresh fish. We sat in a booth and had no problem conversing—the noise level was very moderate. We would definitely return to Bluewater Grill.

    As experienced at other Bluefish locations, our first visit to the Phoenix establishment was very satisfying. The fish, seafood and sushi menu is very extensive and preparation is superb. Our server, Madison, was very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Additionally, her table visits were appropriately timed. Overall, our party of four was very pleased with our meals, the service and the comfortable dining experience. Unfortunately, this location is not located on water!
