Fodor's Expert Review Bluewater Grill

$$ Avalon Seafood

Overlooking the ferry landing and the entire harbor, the open-to-the-salt-air Bluewater Grill offers freshly caught fish, savory chowders, and all manner of shellfish. If they're on the menu, don't miss the swordfish steak, the lobster roll, or the sand dabs. Save room for homemade Key lime pie or java mud pie. The dining room has an understated nautical vibe. Fishing rods serve as room dividers, and plank floors lend a casual feel inside and out. Vintage black-and-white photos acknowledge the island's famed sportfishing legacy. The wraparound patio is the preferred spot to dine. Happy hour attracts a crowd for the craft beers, potent cocktails, and tasty bites like fried calamari and oyster shooters.
