Wonderful cuisines which range from Veal Crostini to a very tasty BBQ Duck Confit served over smoked cheddar polenta, locally grown collard greens and finished with a tangy barbecue sauce.

Now go make a reservation. Here. Now. It may mean a couple of weeks of waiting, but I assure you that it is worth every ounce of anticipation.
My husband and I had our first date here, and it was a certainly a night to remember. The salt and pepper martini is our favorite cocktail by far, but their wine list is nothing to scoff at. The P.E.I. mussels are enough to make my mouth water just thinking about them. On our most recent visit, I ordered the scallop dish, and I will definitely do it again! So, go. Run to the grill. You won't regret it.

This place never lets us down. We were there before, during and after the furniture market before we left town. We used to live in HP and always loved our meals & the service!

I was passing through High Point, and wanted to dine at a local restaurant. Blue Water Grill popped up on my search engine, and I am very happy it did!
It's small, and tucked away (I drove past the entrance on my first try), but delightful. The dining room is creatively divided by large fish tanks, so I didn't feel as if I were sitting in the middle of a display.
The beet salad is top-drawer; the seared scallops w/ fingerling potatoes are worth ordering again and again and again. Delicious.
My server, Katy, is a delightful young woman, a credit to the restaurant.

This is my favorite special date night spot. The calamari is the best I have ever had and I cannot go here without it. The staff is friendly, the food is fabulous, and you will not regret your choice. We love dining in the bar area which is a little more casual, but the dining room is perfect for a romantic dinner, a special occasion, etc. It's a little hidden gem that is worth finding in High Point.

This is really a hidden gem. I've lived in the Triad area for many years and only recently (a couple of years ago) discovered this wonderful find from a referral. I've tried all the "top spots" in the triad (I won't name "names" because most are adequate to very good and you will be satisfied if you go to any of them) and have dined in many upscale restaurants in major cities but will simply say that this is hands down the best and most consistently great and enjoyable dining experience available locally that I've encountered.. WHY? 1. Excellent food and presentation. 2. Impeccable service-you are never rushed out and can make a meal a "memorable" event (also, the management is great at accommodating any special requests--I do all birthdays/anniversary/and other important outings here) and 3.I simply have never had anything other than feeling like I got a great experience here
