Well we went to this restaurant three (or was it four?) times during the week we were recently at the shore, for lunch and for dinner. Seriously, I just loved that chopped salad which came with a lovely vinaigrette. Other meals ordered -- and loved -- were the lobster roll, turkey/cranberry sandwich, avocado sandwich (well I'm sure there was something else on there)....and then of course they have gelato apparently made on site, and I loved me some of that too. The restaurant is a good place for small family groups that include several generations, because there really does seem something for everyone. The wait staff is young, good natured, and efficient. This is one of those bring your own wine restaurants.

Best feature: Plenty of seating for waiting outside. There is a large ice bucket, cups and corkscrew where you can keep your wine cold and have a glass while you wait. Makes the wait much more tolerable. Also a pitcher of cold water, if you like. Very, very nice!

Worst feature: No bread served with $30 entrees? Many of these meals really need bread with them. What is up with that? Dining 101.

We visited Blue Water Cafe three times during our week on lbi with our 3 and 4 year olds. Twice for delicious dinner and once for breakfast. The food and service were consistantly good and I didn't feel out of place with two energetic kids. I enjoyed the garlic mussels and mediterranean seafood salad. My husband had a 1.5 lb lobster which was reasonably priced and the even served it with the claws cracked a bit and tail split. No kids menu, but they gladly served pasta with marinara and the picnic plate was also a good option for an app to share with kids. Byob so we made it out of there for about $100 each night.

Great seafood in a casual setting. Perfect for lunch. Order the old bay fries. Always have nice and creative specials. Ask for a table on the patio

We love a good Chowder, and if you like creamy Thick New England Clam Chowder than it does live to the hype. I would agree that it deserved to win the award for Chowders. We went for Lunch over the July fourth week and it had a nice atmosphere. Other items included the fried Calamari also good as well as the Fish Wrap. Note it is a BYOB as were many of the establishments on the Island.
So if you can remember and enjoy a glass of wine that it would go great and be easy on the pocket. We really enjoyed and had a great lunch Date. Service was fast and Friendly, we got lucky that the Island was not so packed that there was very little wait
