View of shrimp boats from Bluewater at Wrightsville Beach


An American Grill

4 Marina St.,

 Wrightsville Beach

Located just over the bridge on the ICW, Bluewater is a sprawling two-story restaurant that offers great food with a you-don't-want-to-miss-this panoramic view of the waterway. Open daily for lunch and dinner year round, Bluewater serves hearty American cuisine with a distinctly coastal flair in a tastefully nautical atmosphere. Lunch or mid-day snack choices include a dozen tasty appetizer selections (the hot crab dip is a must), numerous salad options, soups and chowder, sandwiches and generous lunch-size entrees. The coconut shrimp plate and the seafood lasagna are excellent choices, but the lump crab cake entree is incredible. Bluewater's dinner menu is equally generous in its choices and, while fresh-catch seafood is an obvious feature, the restaurant also excels with steak, chicken and barbecue ribs. Seating is available indoors on two floors, on a waterside patio downstairs and an intimate covered terrace upstairs. Enjoy live entertainment—light jazz and music with a coastal flavor—on Sunday afternoons in the high season (or as weather permits). Bluewater has all ABC permits and serves a full range of imported and domestic wine and beer.
