Bluewater Grille


Bluewater Grille

4 Marina St., Wrightsville Beach, 28480-1762, NC

Nobody really gets dressed up at the beach, but for an evening out, this might be a nice choice. Dine inside or out, overlooking the intracoastal waterway. In fact, many guests arrive by boat, which is entertaining for the kids.

Everything is about the seafood in this part of the Carolinas, and in particular, the Bluewater Grille is known for its bacon-wrapped scallops and a seafood lasagna that is big enough for three people to enjoy. If you’re not in the mood for seafood or have a shellfish allergy, a number of chicken and vegetable options are equally good.

Kids get their own menu with grilled cheese, fish and chips and chicken fingers, among other options. Mom — you deserve the Sauced Apple cocktail.
