The food was exceptional- probably some of the best Salmon I have eaten. The red sangria was amazing! Portion sizes were very filling. Definitely will be back when we are in town.

Awesome server! Great food, I got the breakfast bruschetta and she got the crab cake Benedict! Both were fantastic, awesome atmosphere on Sunday mornings with the solo guitar doing his thing!

The day after thanksgiving not a lot open at night in downtown Chattanooga. This place came up on search so tried it. Service was good but very slow. Food was ok. Mahi sandwich was ok but not the seared tuna I thought it would be. Others had burgers and cordon blue sandwich. Again nothing special but not terrible.

The first visit I took the recommendation of the hotel staff and had an appetizer. Definitely not enough to stave off the hunger. But was delicious. The second dinner was better as I coupled it with a salad and a very delicious Cajun pasta dish. The prices were a little high for the portion size, but the atmosphere is a... More

Great seafood restaurant in downtown Chattanooga my favorite spot for dinner on all my business trips to the Chattanooga area. It's as good as any seafood I've had on the gulf coast. Highly recommend

Had just one day in Chattanooga and ended it with a wonderful dinner at the Blue Water Grille. Not to be missed is their lobster bisque which is prepared smooth and creamy and wonderful. Fish is fresh and flown in daily. I really liked that you could topped any of their salads with grilled or blackened chicken, salmon or steak... More

While visiting Chattanooga, we had dinner at the Blue Water Grille. The restaurant is dimly lit with gorgeous hanging glass panels that give the space a warm amber-red glow. Service was good. We ordered the Caesar salad, followed by shrimp and grits and the lobster and shrimp mac and cheese. Neither disappointed. The shrimp and grits is pretty spicy -... More

It's been off the radar for a while. For whatever reason, today was the day we elected to return. There have been so many restaurants to have opened in the years since blue water first opened. Because of that, I wasn't blown away. The brunch offers a variety of traditional items like omelette, French toast, as well as small plates... More

My only complaint is that we received and finished our app before the server took our order for the main course. It was very busy, but come on! Margaritas were great. We had the grouper Oscar, seafood stuffed pasta shells, and shrimp and grits. Very generous portions. Would definitely recommend!
