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.

    Was in town for a family gathering of almost 20 people and this restaurant was beyond accommodating to us all, I even had to change the time and amount of people on the reservation a couple times but they were so nice about it even though our group was so large! Beautiful waterfront views, delicious food, amazing service all made it memorable! Our server was so kind and friendly, I think his name was Ian or Ethan but we will be sure to request him next time as we will definitely be back whenever we are in Grand Rapids!

    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.
