Bluewater Grill during Covid Pandemic

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

Diane and I have not ventured out during the Pandemic Shut Down, by the California Governor. In fairness to disclosure Diane has went out once to lunch with her Boss during the past six months. I chose not to and today was a special occasion. So not wanting to go to a super upscale five star restaurant, Diane chose one of our favorite low key down to earth place: The Blue Water Grill that we have been frequenting for too many years to mention.

Just to give you an idea our favorite Waiter Sal ended up getting promoted over the years to Manager of the Restaurant. We usually go there a handful of times when we want good seafood at a relaxed price and atmosphere. They do not take reservations due to Covid so we decided to go  "old people style" around 2pm we figured it would be a bit slower. Not lunch and not dinner.... so it was extra exciting to see our favorite Manager Sal. As old friends do we were bummed all of us wearing masks and not being able to hug each other.

Sal has known us over the past decade or more that we love the "view" of the channel. There were usually three tables we always loved. Today clearly thanks to Covid Pandemic it was not an option. Sal, immediately guided us to the "latest and newest patio" of the restaurant. He assured us that we would love the view. He also knew that this would be a better place for us. Diane and I prefer a quieter place so we can enjoy our food. Again we had a fantastic experience. Look at the "New Patio":))

As always the food was consistent and the service impeccable, Manager and Waitress both hovered over us like we go there every day. If you never been to the Blue Water Grill you are doing yourself a disservice. There is one in Santa Barbara, San Diego, Newport Beach and the list goes on and on. For a Chain Restaurant it is out of this world.

Needless to say we had a request that was not on the Menu but it was Diane's favorite: Ipswich Clams a very East Coast Meal they used to serve. Sal made it happen for the loyal customers, I had something I would never cook that is Fish & Chips and of course with French Fries and Coleslaw:)


Bluewater Grill

665 N. Harbor Drive, Redondo Beach, CA 90277   If you never been please let Sal know Diane & I sent you. Truly a great experience! BTW here is a little history about the Restaurant:
Based in Redondo Beach, California, Bluewater Grill is a restaurant venue that hosts weddings. Founded in 1996, the team continue to offer their customers fresh seafood of the highest quality, with a focus on sustainable fishing and healthy living. Located on King Harbour, couples who book this venue can enjoy stunning scenic view while delighting in exquisite food and a romantic ambiance.

BTW there really is an Ocean View I just wanted to show you the private "new patio dining area" Diane and I loved it and there really was a great ocean view.


Now it that is not enough incentive to go there, please Google my post about the Bluewater Grill in the past two decades!!

Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Morning Endre.

Both of those plates look great. I like both what you and Diane chose.  It would be difficult, for me to decide.

Good morning, Endre... how nice you were able to go out and enjoy a wonderful meal at a much loved restaurant. Thus far, although I'm out and about quite a bit, I've avoided eating at a restaurant. And I just heard this morning that a study has shown that people who are now eating out relatively frequently had twice the rate of contracting the virus... so I think I'll avoid it for a while.

It sounds like you had a fantastic meal, and were doting upon by the Sal and the staff. Thank you for sharing - if I'm ever out that way, I'll have to visit this restaurant.

Hello Endre - I also haven't been out to a restaurant to eat(let alone dine) since late February or early March so I understand the anticipating excitement as well as a bit of reluctance as you again experienced Blue Water Grill again in Redondo Beach.  It's obviously much more than food.  Glad it was a good time.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr., Blue Water Grill sounds like a great place, if I'm ever in the area, I will definitely go, it's on my list now. I did go out to eat twice since early February, not fun with masks and scaled back menus(in my area at least).

Nina Hollander  first time for me in six months and second time for Diane...and as you can see  a portion of the Parking lot was usurp for Patio Dining, stay safe. On a side note there is so much misinformation out there about the virus people can pick and chose what they want to believe in, Endre

Beth Atalay  yes scaled back menus we talked about as well and Sal told us that the seared Ahi Tuna was back as an appetizer, so we had to have it too. Now with that said when you are coming give us heads up and maybe we can even twist Michael Jacobs  to join us:)))Endre

Barbara Todaro  this is the only Restaurant that we know and found in 25 years that served it, truly authentic East Coast Style. I remember the first time we went we discovered that one of the Chef's helper was from MA. It stayed on the menu till the Pandemic...Endre

Endre I love fried clams, in fact I had whole bellies on Friday, and the fish is just the way I like it with a heavy batter.

Hi Endre- Larry and I have been out just a handful of times. We went for a late lunch or early dinner so there wouldn't be as many diners. I think our capacity is at 50%. We're hoping that as the weather cools, we'll be able to eat outdoors. We decided when we went that if we walked in and it was too crowded, we would leave.
