The service was fast and friendly, and the food was amazing. It is cooked fresh and prepared for you upon ordering. The tacos are authentic and delicious. Worth the wait through any crowd.

Fresh fresh fresh. Pick your favorite fish, shrimp, etc from the case and choose how you want it prepared. Then choose sandwich, salad or taco.

I highly recommend the ahi appetizer. So freaking good.

Most times you'll have to wait in line to order.
Suggest off-times, like 7:30 on a Thursday. We walked in-and no line.

Worth the wait, however long it is.

Ask the guy behind the fish countrr "what's good" and he can help you decide if you can't.

Highly recommend!

Fresh seafood in a casual setting at a reasonable price. The selection was outstanding, the preparation superb and the staff friendly and accommodating. Caution: Get there soon after opening or you will be standing in a line out the door. Very casual with orders taken and paid at the counter and delivered to your table by the staff.

It was after 7 p.m. on a Wednesday when a friend I decided to jump off the trolley on Washington St. and have dinner at Blue Water. She'd been there before; I'd never heard of the place. As we turned the corner onto India St., we saw a line out the door, and briefly debated our options. We chose to stay, even though we realized it might be an hour or more until we got to the front of the line; the man in front of us supported our choice and we ended up being a party of 3.

Oh, you're wondering about the food? As the title of this review reflects, it was worth the wait. The order process is simple: choose the fish you want from the "on the grill" list, a marinade and how you want it prepared, as a sandwich, salad, plate or taco. My choice was a scallop salad, but alas, I was told they only had enough scallops for a taco. This place only serves fresh seafood, and when the day's catch is gone, it's gone. My taco was fabulous; the scallops were perfectly cooked and wonderfully paired with crisp cabbage, tomatoes, Cheddar cheese and Blue Water's homemade white sauce. Mmmmm! Perfect for what turned out to be a late dinner.

My old and new friends also enjoyed their dinners: a swordfish plate and steaming bowl of classic cioppino with fresh mussels, clams, scallops, shrimp and red snapper. It was almost 9 p.m. when we left--and there was still a line! Plan to be patient, but definitely put Blue Water on your list of restaurants to visit in San Diego.

First time there seen on Triple D . Ordered the fish tacos they were terrific. Huge 6oz portions on each taco priced right.. Atmosphere was local and friendly. A little crowded but well worth the wait. Fresh fish and great times.
