This place is great for lunch or dinner. We go here often so I don't think to review it... All menu options are great. Sunday Bloody Mary Bar is wonderful. Sushi is great. This is great for casual dining, lunch or dinner, or even as a special occasion.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Blue Water Grill. It was delicious and since it was a Sunday evening there was live music which was great. Outstanding!

We ate dinner here on a rather busy Sunday night. We got a table overlooking the water which was nice. We both had cheeseburgers that were excellent! Nice charbroil flavor and plenty of fries (I had sweet potato fries). We each had a drink and the total was just $40... Only thing we were not wild about was they had... More

The blue water grill is a quality friendly restaurant in Skaneateles. If you are in town and are not sure we're to eat. Stop in at the Blue Water Grill. It's a pleasant place with a variety of options of cocktails, wine and beer. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly. We both had a salmon meal which was excellent. After... More

They have anything from Chicken Wings to sushi or a steak and it's all good ! Reasonably priced and a big selection on the menu. Sits right in the village of Skaneateles along the lake . Great place to have a drink and a meal if your in he area.

Sunday Brunch Focus at the restaurant was the special Caesar for $10 - build your own with a choice of vodkas and condiments (shrimp, scallops, oysters, deviled eggs, cheese, cheese curds, olives, bacon - strange items) and a Corona beer chaser. If I wasn't driving I would have had one as a full meal. Cobb salad was better than OK.... More

We just had lunch here. The staff is attentive and friendly. The entree salads are very fresh. Husband had the lobster Napoleon with an oyster shooter and raved about it. A nice walk into town while staying at the Mirbeau Spa for a few days.

The views from the patio, where we sat, were particularly nice, as we were there right at sunset. We also thought ourselves lucky as we were there on a Tuesday, "sushi night." Three members of our party ordered sushi, none of which would pass muster at any Asian restaurant I've ever been to (let alone Japanese). The teriyaki salmon special... More
