Celebrating our 20th year in business, we were established in Newport Beach, California in 1996, by partners Rick Staunton and Jim Ulcickas. Bluewater Grill has grown into a family of seafood restaurants, located in resort communities, committed to serving guests pristine quality seafood, sustainably caught, and prepared classically or with a modern twist.
We operate our own swordfish harpoon boat, Pilikia (shown in slideshow), and serve the finest quality locally harpooned swordfish in season. Our fish is always the most pristine quality available, and we purchase directly from fisherman, in season, at the peak of quality and freshness.
We pride ourselves on having built a team of professional, caring and fun staff that will do what it takes to provide a great dining experience and keep you coming back time and time again.
We are fishermen at heart and want to insure the future availability of seafood and make responsible seafood purchasing a core value of our operation.
Bluewater Grill offers more than 40 varieties of seafood annually, with oysters on the half shell, award winning chowder, a kid’s menu approved by the Kids LiveWell program of the National Restaurant Association, patio dining, full bar and wine list, brunch, and happy hour. We even have a boat dock and bike racks at our locations! Bluewater Grill’s mission is to serve great food in a casual, relaxed environment, by friendly and knowledgeable people at a fair price. You will love us for our food, our amazing people and our beautiful locations!
