They have the best hamburgers in all of Brookings. Always fresh and delicious. Their Ortega burger is the best of them all. Their fries are also excellent and the fry sauce is Awesome.

You might have looked at the wrong website - Blue Water is open 6AM to 2PM - they may also change their hours from season to season, so check the site before heading out if you can.
