Down to Earth dining means traditional American cuisine prepared using simple and wholesome ingredients. We've learned from our families, mentors and culinary heroes that fresh ingredients, sound technique, a sense of adventure and a little love is all you need to make outstanding food. We prepare meals with the same fare and techniques that we use in our own homes. Join us for Sunday afternoon Bloody Mary's, garnished with handmade pickled veggies. Make it a special family pizza night around a Wood-Fired Margherita topped with fresh basil from our lakeside garden. The view is Frank Lloyd Wright inspired architecture with clean lines, open spaces and giant walls of glass framing the beautiful lake. Enjoy fresh air as you dine just feet away from the sapphire blue Versluis Lake. Feel the warmth and romance of a roaring fire while the moon lights a Michigan winter wonderland. There's a view for every season and a season for every palate at Blue Water. Eat here. Breathe here. Be here.

    The Mother’s Day Brunch menu was outstanding, the service was impeccable and the view of the water was stunning. Arrived at our reserved time and were sat immediately. Couldn’t have been better.
