Established in 1996, Bluewater Grill in Newport Beach was the original inspiration for what has become the leading family of premium seafood restaurants in Southern California. Owner-operated since its inception, the waterfront restaurant on the docks in historic Cannery Village enjoys a rich tradition in Newport Beach. The building was first operated as The Sea Shanty and later Delaney’s Seafood Restaurant on the docks of the Newport Landing Charter Fishing Fleet and tuna cannery. Notable celebrities including Humphrey Bogart, John Wayne, James Cagney, and Joey Bishop were regular guests at this raucous seaside eatery.
Lunch, Brunch and dinner menus feature more than 30 varieties of fresh seafood and shellfish annually. Other highlights include a display kitchen with counter seating, kid’s menu, patio dining, full bar, weekday happy hours, full wine list, boat dock and monthly tasting events.
