BluWater Grill owner Tanya Phillips, who boasts more than 20 years of fine dining experience, crafts authentic Hawaiian cuisine, seafood, and steaks in her romantic waterfront grill. An extensive menu starts off with small plates—or pupus—such as curried crab cakes with sweet-chili aioli ($13.95) or the kālua barbecue-pulled-pork quesadillas ($11.95). Whitefish and scallops limbo under skewered prawns for a chance at a basil pesto linguini trophy ($17.95), while a 10-ounce rib-eye steak tempts noses with its aromatic garlic au jus and horseradish embellishment ($27.95). Tiger prawns don macadamia-nut robes when stalking mashed Okinawan sweet potatoes through the shallows of sweet-chili sauce ($20.95). BluWater Grill’s alcohol amalgamaters pour decadent drinks and serve hot and cold desserts—such as the mango-purée-infused mango crème brûlée ($6.95)—at the end of culinary odysseys.
Friendly hosts whisk diners to an outdoor table overlooking azure waters and volcanic formations, or to an indoor dining room where they can gaze through windows at the beautiful scenery or into the unblinking eyes of their sentient reflection. BluWater Grill sates appetites seaside throughout the week, as well as during their Sunday brunch.
