2000 Sailfish Drive, Pirate's Cove, Manteo
Blue Water Grill & Raw Bar is the sister restaurant to another Outer Banks favorite, Blue Moon Beach Grill, located in Nags Head. Blue Water Grill is a family-owned restaurant at Pirate's Cove Marina, giving it a prime location with fantastic views of the marina, sound and marsh. Their menu is interestingly varied and changes seasonally. Oysters hailing from local, regional and national waters are the specialty at the raw bar, along with local seafood. The menus feature appetizers, salads, hearty entrees of seafood and select meats and lighter fare. Tuna sashimi, fish tacos and the bison burger are favorites. They'll even cook your cleaned fresh catch if you bring it in! The bar offers specialty cocktails and extensive wine and beer lists. The staff is friendly, and you’ll be happy with their service and care. Blue Water also offers Mimi’s Tiki Hut, open May to September, located on the docks right below the restaurant. Mimi's is a great place to wait for a table at Blue Water or just to watch the fishing boats come in from a long day, and you can have a drink or grab a bite to eat there. Blue Water accepts reservations and is open year round.
