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.

I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us. What day of the week were you in? Were you in for lunch or dinner? Do you know the name of your server? I would love to touch base with them to find out what happened. As far as the expense...I apologize that you did... More

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

I won a gift card for the Blue Water Grill, and I cashed in last night- I dined with a friend, and there were several choices on the menu. I had the southwestern salad which comes in a big taco "bowl," ( dieters beware!) No problems with putting the dressing on the side. I also had the tomato soup which... More

We have eaten several times at The Blue Water Grill for both lunch as well as dinner. Each time we had crab cakes. These are the best crab cakes I have ever had in a restaurant anywhere in the US (or South Africa). There is plenty of lump crab meat, understated seasoning that is highly complimentary to make the crab... More

The menu in this restaurant is directed towards Seafood mainly. The food is prepared properly and is tasty. The restaurant has a bit of ambience and is located in downtown Millsboro. The wait staff are excellent and very friendly. The prices are mid-range and a variety is available on the menu

We joined our friends for dinner a second visit and it was just as good the second time as it was the first. I had one of the daily specials which was rock fish and it was excellent, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Richard our waiter did an excellent job with the service and also the entertainment. We will... More
