And, quickly! You will wait in line at most anytime of the day this place is so popular. For good reason. Absolutely the freshest seafood prepared with care and lots of love for the ingredients. I enjoyed today blackened grilled blue fin tuna salad. Last time I was here I had swordfish. Just a perfect little place that serves big,... More

Halibut with lemon garlic butter was the best fish taco I ever ate. Back in my landlocked hometown, it is hard to eat our usual seafood tacos. You may be asked to share a table. We enjoyed sitting with the locals who ordered sashimi. The downloadable .pdf menu on the restaurant's website was helpful. We found affordable options especially considering... More

Happened upon this gem while looking for a quick and delicious place for lunch. We wanted something we couldn't readily get at home, and that of course was seafood. After checking the handy TripAdvisor app we came upon the highly recommended Blue Water Seafood. As you walk in it smells amazing and not at all "fishy", indicating the incredible freshness... More

Do not be put off if there is a line when you arrive. The line was out the door and we ordered within about 15 or 20 minutes. They have a system that helps clear out seating while you wait in line to order. Ordered a sandwich and the portion was very large but did not come with any sides... More

This place is absolutely amazing. I had three tacos all of different kinds of fish. I enjoyed the cod one the most, but all were delicious. The shrimp cocktail and ceviche were excellent choices for starters. The line makes the whole experience rounded. My coworkers and I absolutely loved this place and talked about it for the rest of our... More

We had a fantastic fresh seafood dinner. The line can get a little long but don't let that stop you. The ladies do a great job taking the orders and assigning seating. You can eat in or order to go. Have a beer or glass of wine with a menu that is very extensive.

At 8:00 on a Monday night there was a 20 minute wait. Totally worth it. The fish was so fresh and good. We all had different things and it was all great; you really can't go wrong.
