This is a order and seat yourself restaurant. The grilled calamari was fantastic!! The restaurant is a little small but seems fairly crowded.

Even though you stand in line to place your order, the crowd before sends the message that it will be worth the wait. It is. Fresh seafood comes from the iced counter you walk by while in line. We had the wahoo which could not be better. This is a San Diego tradition you should not miss.

San Diego has many upscale restaurants where you can spend a fortune and if your lucky get a fresh delicious seafood plate. Blue Water is unique in that it's friendly casual dining, affordably priced, yet just as fabulous and fresh food as the upscales. No pricey wines, or cocktails, but nice selection of beer. Go early to avoid the lines! We were there around 4PM on a Friday afternoon and the wait was tolerable. Can't wait to go back!

We stopped here on the way into san Diego from the airport (it's a few minute drive from the airport). we had to wait about 20 minutes to order as it was peak lunch time but the wait was worth it. the prices are reasonable and the fish tacos were delicious! nice casual atmosphere too

Emphasis at the Blue Water is on getting the freshest fish, prepared in a variety of ways in a relaxed, casual room. If you're looking for white table cloths and high prices, this is not the place for you. Blue Water gets it right. Our Hawaiian wahoo and swordfish were great. The oysters were super fresh and wonderfully tasty. Great value. Good local beer on tap.
