Newport Beach – Voted “Best Seafood” in Orange County

We are located on Lido Peninsula, on the bay in Newport Beach, at the historic former site of The Sea Shanty & Delaney’s. Pull up to our dock in your electric boat or arrive by bike, car or on foot for an outstanding meal or Happy Hour. Our iconic original location is outfitted in classic nautical style and sits right over the water. The perfect location to enjoy pristine quality seafood, sustainably caught, prepared classically or with a modern twist. If you’re lucky, you may even see the Bluewater kitchen staff hauling in a harpooned Swordfish from our very own harpoon boat, Pilikia. Come in, get hooked!

We seat parties immediately upon arrival, and are seated in the order of arrival. Call to inquire expected wait times, if any, on the day you plan to dine with us. Parties of six or more may call ahead and be added to the list and will receive the first table available upon arrival. We strive to seat all call ahead parties of 6 or more within ten minutes.
