Newport Beach – Voted “Best Seafood” in Orange County

Come in and get hooked on the best in fresh, sustainable seafood in Newport Beach as voted by Brad Johnson, Restaurant Critic at the Orange County Register. Enjoy a waterfront patio, full bar, happy hour, private event rooms and a pet friendly space. We are located on Lido Peninsula, on the bay in Newport Beach, at the historic former site of The Sea Shanty & Delaney’s. Our iconic original location is outfitted in a classic nautical style and if you’re lucky, you may even see the Bluewater kitchen staff hauling in a harpooned Swordfish from our very own boat, "Pilikia". Since we're on the water, you can always pull up to our dock for an outstanding meal. 


Inquiries about a table?

We seat parties immediately in the order of arrival. Feel welcome to call and inquire about expected wait times, if any. Parties of six or more may call ahead to be added to the wait list. We strive to seat all call ahead parties of 6 or more within ten minutes.
