What do our guests say about their Blue Water experience?

“We held a rehearsal dinner for 45 people Friday, September 9, 2016. Working with Erik Linnekin, Mgr was a pleasure. The entire staff was on point, from pouring wine without asking, to clearing plates immediately when finished. The dinners all came out hot (and to accomplish this with 45 plates all within a short duration is not an easy thing to accomplish)!  The fried pickles and duck egg rolls were a hit and highly recommended!  Can’t go wrong with the fish tacos or cheesesteak!  Thank you to the Blue Water Grill for starting the wedding weekend off with a very positive note.”

“I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all your hard work preparing a special evening for my wedding dinner. Your prompt email replies and willingness to answer all my questions really set my mind at ease.  I could not have been more pleased with the way everything turned out. My guests were equally impressed with the quality of food and service they received. I am so pleased I chose Blue Water Grill to have my intimate wedding dinner. You all are amazing!”

“Lynda and I wanted to reach out and thank you and your wonderful staff at the Blue Water Grill.  The food and service were excellent. I can’t tell you how many of our guest that evening commented on how wonderful everything was.  The bride and groom had a great time.  Lynda and I are very grateful for the personal service you provided. Your attention to detail and willingness to work with our personal touches made all the difference.  The evening was truly remarkable.”

“You went over and above to make our rehearsal dinner wonderful! Everyone commented on your attention to detail. The staff were wonderful and as always the food was great too. Thank you for everything. I am telling everyone to come to Blue Water Grill. We will see you in the restaurant.”

“Thank you again for making our OBX Bank Christmas dinner party at Blue Water last night most enjoyable!  From the beginning, …you were very professional and overwhelmingly accommodating with all our requests.  Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and compliments were nonstop all evening and into this morning about how delicious the food was and how gracious we were all treated by the entire staff!”

“I wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for an excellent experience at your restaurant. We will certainly be coming back and recommending the Blue Water Grill and Raw Bar to others. We’ll be in touch for the May 2016 trip that we have scheduled. Please pass on our gratitude to the other restaurant staff.”

“Absolutely fantastic atmosphere and staff. We had a last minute event for 30 people in February (the off season). Hank and his staff went out of their way for us. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the view was spectacular. We will be back in a few months and plan on eating there again. We highly recommend the fried oysters, the shrimp and pasta, the cheese fondue appetizer, the duck egg roll appetizer, the ribeye steak, the salted caramel brownie dessert, the key lime cheesecake and the root beer floats. Family friendly prices a definite plus. 5 stars for food, presentation, atmosphere and above all, the staff!”
