Fodor's Expert Review Bluewater Grill

$$$ Newport Beach Seafood

On the site of an old sportfishing dock, this popular spot offers a variety of seafood, from Idaho trout amandine and lemon pepper mahimahi to lobster, pan-seared scallops, and chipotle-blackened swordfish. There's a tranquil bay view from either the dining room, which is adorned with early-1900s fishing photos, or the waterfront patio. Favorites include miso-glazed black cod, local rockfish snapper, and all manner of shellfish. There's an emphasis on freshness—the menu changes daily—and wines and craft brews are reasonably priced.
