To Our Loyal Bluewater Grill Tustin Customers: We are sorry to have to report that the management of The District at Tustin Legacy terminated the lease for Bluewater Grill Tustin. Unfortunately, we were forced to close the restaurant after a decade of serving central Orange County. Our last day of operation was Monday, August 7th.
Please note that this action was initiated by the management of The District at Tustin Legacy and not by Bluewater Grill. We remain committed to Orange County through our original Bluewater Grill in Newport’s Cannery Village, and have been honored to introduce a new generation of central Orange County residents to the wonders of hyper-fresh sustainable seafood.
Certainly, much has changed since we opened the third Bluewater Grill, in Tustin in 2007. Our Bluewater family now includes restaurants in Redondo Beach, Coronado, Avalon on Catalina Island, Temecula and Phoenix. 2017 also marks the first year in our history during which we are opening two new locations: in the heart of Carlsbad Village in September and on the Santa Barbara beachfront in October. So, while sadly we won’t be operating in Tustin, we will be offering more ways for fans to get hooked on Bluewater Grill.
To everyone who has visited Bluewater Grill Tustin — a sincere thank you. We sincerely appreciate the decade of support you have given us. A restaurant is only as good as its most loyal customers and, in this area, we have been truly blessed.
We also appreciate all the hard work, dedication and loyalty from the Bluewater Grill Tustin employee family. We are meeting with each employee individually to discuss employment opportunities at our seven other restaurants, including our new locations in Carlsbad and Santa Barbara where we are hiring all positions. We are doing everything we can to help our Tustin family find employment, and are already in conversations with the management of the restaurant that will be leasing our space at The District about interviewing all qualified employees.
We appreciate your continued support for Bluewater Grill and hope to see you at one of our seven other locations soon. We also encourage you to try the new tenant opening at our location — “Prego Ristorante” — when they open late this year.
