Seafood
Our goal at Bluwave Seafood is to serve the best darn seafood you ever had. We know how to do this, too. With fresh, wholesome ingredients and lots of TLC. From the docks we prepare our seafood in many ways to suit your desires. We believe that eating isn't just about feeding your body. It's about nourishing the soul, too. And life is too short for mediocre soul food. We make sure every dish that we serve satisfies your entire being. Crispy, savory, sweet, juicy, satisfying. Whatever you crave is what we want to serve. Bluwave was born on a beautiful Florida day in 2020. After years of eating the fresh seafood from the local restaurant chains, I decided to drop everything and build the restaurant of my dreams. High-quality ingredients, delicious recipes, lots of TLC. Not to mention a beautifully interior designed, and relaxing atmosphere.

First time we went to Blu Wave in Ft. Myers FL. was about one week ago with another
couple. We chose this restaurant because it came highly recommended. The food
was delicious.

Second time we went with friends and told them the food was delicious.
We were a bit embarassed and disappointed in the dinners. There was 6 of us.
and the dinners were not served to us hot; the lobster chunks served in one dish were
overcooked; and my dinner had whole shrimp in the dish and they were overcooked.
When I complained, the server returned to our table and gave me one shrimp - I repeat one shrimp and said he cooked it himself for me. It was also overcooked. We do not intend to return to this restaurant. I apologized to my friends about bringing them to this restaurant where the dinners are rather expensive and then receive unacceptable dishes. I had ordered the exact same main course I previously had there, which was
delicious and served hot, but this time the same dish I ordered was not very good.

Such a surprise to find this restaurant at an Outlet mall. Make a reservation as it is August and most of the tables were full. Will definitely go back

A MUST during a visit to Fr Myers! Awesome food, phenomenal bartenders and service. Started with Hawaiian Tostones & Shrimp and Lobster empanadas. Tostones is a meal in and of itself and delicious. Highly recommend. Not much flavor or lobster in the empanada. Really more like a wonton. Split grouper entree which was phenomenal. opted to sit at bar and received excellent service. Great personalities! Manger also hands on and very personable. Definitely returning in next trip!

I would have given 5 stars except for the manager there
I saw him beside the food prep area pick up food with hi bare hand and eat it. This is an open kitchen restaurant
When I told him I saw that he didn’t see anything wrong with it. I said I hope the container u took something out of was not something that garnished my plate! Oh he said the staff has snacks there that they eat!!
I’ve worked in food service and this is never ok.

The seafood—especially the oysters were excellent. The filet mignonette was way over smoked. In fact, it shouldn’t be smoked at all. A good cut of beef stands on its own. No need to disguise it

This place is absolutely amazing! I could not believe the flavor in my dish and I will definitely be back as well as suggesting this restaurant to others. The service was impeccable and my waitress was awesome. I loved being able to watch them make my food, the kitchen staff seems to really have a good vibe going on together and everyone seem to be very passionate about their work!!

Fresh mussels and clams were very good. I had the Seared Scallops which were tasty and done just right. My girlfriend had the sea bass and she enjoyed that as well. The food was great, but we sat next to a table that had noisy kids. Once they left we really enjoyed ourselves.

Sat at the table for 20 minutes before anyone approached us. The server was very nice and apologetic when she came to take our drink order but everything following that took forever. The food was just OK and overpriced for whatever it was. Won't be returning.

Third visit here - the stuffed mushrooms and mussels & clams apps were delicious.
Slightly disappointed with the chilled seafood platter - the quality of seafood was great however the shellfish wasn't cracked and the shrimp were peel & eat, a little too much work for the price.

Really enjoyed our first meal here and will return. The menu (particularly the prices) need a little reworking. Hint: if you like lobster and crab, then have your lobster with the crab stuffing. You'll pay less than adding the crab cake starter, and the crab stuffing is more moist than the cake. I also recommend the guac shrimp... Lots of flavor. All of the sides were excellent except the yucca... Flavorful but dry.

Lobster roll was not worth the price nor was the four bites of a $45 dollar lobster. See bass was adequate but not the best. Lobster bisque was not good. Service was very good and ambience is very nice.

Second time dining at BluWave. Very good food. Only disappointment is the fresh vegetable was the same thing served at our prior visit...bok choy and carrots. The bok choy was a bit difficult to eat. Would like to see some other options in the future.

Would have liked some cold options for lobster, such as lobster salad or a chilled lobster roll with lemon. The lobster bisque tasted like pumpkin soup and was flavored with nutmeg and cinnamon.

The placement of large parties in the middle of the main room made it difficult for parties of two to hear each other while dining at the side booths.

Expensive wine list.

Who would have imagined an extraordinary dining experience like Blue Wave Lobster House in an outlet mall???? We were delighted with the ambiance - fresh, clean, design - as well as the service AND the food was superb! Blue Wave was awesome in every regard!!!!

We enjoyed the meal that we had last night.

The quality of the fish and shellfish was excellent.

One person ordered a cocktail and enjoyed it very much. The wine was good as well.


The server was personable and efficient.

Took my Besty to celebrate her Birthday. This was our first visit. The food was delicious. Options amazing. However, They were out of several dishes and appetizers. We were interested in trying. They must make sure to have in enough in stock when season comes around. If not they will loose a lot of business. Which makes a reason for us to go back. Our waitress Tiffany was amazing. Tiffany made our visit amazing. The Restaurant it self was very clean and has a private room for events. Definitely will return and will recommend.
