This place was quite busy as usual from or local's friends advice. They were about 16 minutes behind with our reservation however we enjoyed a cocktail while waiting comfortably. The waitress was quite prompt and knowledgeable about the menu. We share a couple Sushi apps and each of us had quite variety for our main course. The food was very... More

I thought the dinner was OK but that’s about it. I ordered a kale Caesar and it came without kale. I called the waitress and she brought another….no kale. Seems the kale was a tiny condiment that look like a sprinkle of parsley. Ridiculous. Food was just OK

Blue Water Bistro has outdoor seating, but it was a little cool the night we were there. We were surprised to see how much room was inside. The food was good. We had a chicken dish and a pasta dish. I little different than you will find at most eating places.

We found this place close to where we were visiting. It is located on a very busy highway and the valet parking was helpful. The restaurant is part of a chain of similar establishments. Food selections are varied - my wife and I ordered the sirloin. While cooked as ordered, the meet was tough!

Dear George W, Thank you for coming out to dine with us at Blue Water Bistro. We're disappointed that your dinner with us left you wanting more. Sirloin, in general as a cut of meat, regardless of the temperature at which you cook it is tougher than other cuts of steak. We highly recommend trying our filet, which is a... More

Was on a task to find a restaurant between the airport and Naples after I got off the plane. Trip advisor did not let me down. From steaks, to seafood, to Sushi, indoor and out door seating, beautiful bar and all within an outdoor shopping center with some high-end shops too. Eddie our waiter was superb!

We sat outside and had a great friendly server! She was prompt,with helpful suggestions! We both ordered fish which was fresh,tasty and presented well. Nice wine selection! Place. Was a bit pricey but in this case well worth it! Try an early reservation say 530 little less pushy and makes for a leisurely dinner! Enjoy!!!

My beautiful wife and I went out last minute for dinner. Have enjoyed BWB before. I went for the Grouper Scampi. Delicious. Then I begged my wife for a taste of her Parmesan Crusted Chicken entree. After putting her in a headlock (not really) I took a bite. Between the chicken and the perfectly melted Parmesan cheese was a layer... More

We went in when we could not get seated at Ruth's Chris. Best thing that happened to me this week. Their happy hour had drinks 75 percent off for the 1st hour and increased the price hourly by 25 percent. We stayed for dinner at 5:00 and the price for about 8 entrees was 18.95 and when two ordered they... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner at the Blue Water Bistro. The seafood options are many and the ambience is nice. Busy bar area with great specials and lots of outdoor seating. Service was good. Try the 5:30 special dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine for $18.50 each, but you need reservations!
