We stumbled upon this place by accident. Almost didn't go in because we weren't quite sure. So glad we did. Food and drinks were terrific. Service fantastic. We always try to bring out of town guests here for dinner because we know they will really enjoy it. Menu always changing. Great place.

We visited Blue Water Grill the first time in February 2014, as new residents of Millsboro. We knew immediately we had found our go to hometown restaurant. Since then we have visited countless times for lunch and dinner. Not once have we had a bad meal. Pay attention to their specials they are worth trying. The hamburgers are superb. Crab... More

Had the fried flounder with apple sauce and slaw. Fish was a respectable size and done to perfection. Soft shell crab was excellent. In Millsboro this is the place to go for seafood and other delicious dishes.

Stopped in after a work event looking for great crab cakes! They delivered. Exceptional selection of beers on tap to suit all tastes and fantastic seafood. Service was a bit hit or miss, but the waiter did say it was his 2nd day. Would definitely go back the next time I am in town.

Blue Water Grill in Millsboro is one of the finest restaurants in the area not located at the beaches. We've been going for many years and have always been satisfied. However our dinner in April 2017 was outstanding and rivals the finest restaurant meals anywhere. We had fresh Rockfish from Ocean City, MD with a quinoa salad. Unbelievably good. The... More

I have been going to this restaurant since it opened over ten years ago. The food is well priced and never disappoints. They have a killer BLT for lunch. I would have given this a five-star rating, but the place is on the noisy side when near capacity. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, especially Richard, and we eat... More

Seemed servers were overwhelmed by a large party. Service was slow. Food was fair, nothing great. Had the crab cake, was told there was not much filler in them, WRONG! Tasted ok, but it was at least 1/3 filler. Tables are cramped. Noisy. Too expensive for what we had.

We stopped on a Sunday afternoon after seeing a play at Possum Players. As it was only 4:00 other restaurants that we tried were closed. Blue Water is right on the Main Street so easy to find and park. Walking in , it is very casual, but were greeted warmly by the host and our waiter. We all ordered something... More
