The sun glistens across the ocean as the sound of waves crash in the distance. This picturesque image greets diners at BluWater Grill—tucked within the Hawaii Kai Shopping Center—as they recline on the restaurant’s waterfront patio. Owner Tanya Phillips––a 20+-year veteran of the restaurant industry––and chef Harold Beltran crafted the lengthy lunch and dinner menus, which include dishes made with fresh Hawaiian fish and local-style ribs in addition to a variety of pupus including ginger chicken wings, spiced calamari, and BBQ kālua pork quesadillas. Couples who prefer air-conditioned cool to ocean breezes can sit inside the dining room and get cozy in a booth, order cocktails from the fully stocked bar, or stare up at a flat-screen television and count its pixels. BluWater Grill sates appetites seaside throughout the week, as well during Sunday brunch.
