The restaurant is at the waterfront and has a great view of the ocean and the pier. Our waitress was very nice and we were served quickly. Food was nothing special but it was good quality and the portions were huge.

We visited Blue Waters as part of a group of 12, last week. The food was excellent, from starters (Carpaccio) to mains (Fillet Steak). The portion sizes are very generous, and the service was good.
