Why We Like This Place

Bluewater Grill isn’t just a local favorite—it’s also a hotspot for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions and lots of private parties. The reason for its popularity is obvious to anyone who dines here: It offers a picturesque waterfront location and the kind of food that keeps people coming back again and again.

Sitting right at the edge of King Harbor, the restaurant overlooks the water. Guests seated inside or out on the deck are treated to a fantastic, up-close view of hundreds of colorful boats either passing by or bobbing at their moorings. The ambiance in the main dining room is comfortably casual, with vintage photos of fishermen and their prize catches adorning the walls, teak floors, and polished brass fixtures throughout. But if you’re planning a special celebration, you’ll want to reserve one of their two private dining rooms.

Both versatile rooms offer harbor vistas and can accommodate a wide range of events, from a birthday bash to a business meeting. The intimate Captain’s Cabin is ideal for a rehearsal dinner or small reception. Its unique interior features an abundance of wood in the barrel ceiling and wainscoting, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that let in lots of natural light along with a harbor view. On cool evenings, a fireplace at one end adds a warm glow. The room works equally well for an informal gathering or a sophisticated soirée.

The Avalon Room upstairs hosts larger groups, and this is where most wedding receptions take place. Wraparound windows and a high, peaked ceiling lend this space an open, airy quality. It’s easy to transform this room into whatever style you have in mind: Go festive with vibrant table settings and balloons floating overhead, or host an elegant sit-down dinner with custom linens and stunning centerpieces. No matter what ambiance you create inside, you’ll always be able to look out onto the harbor scene and, if you’re lucky, a glorious sunset.

The on-site Event Coordinator will help you plan your celebration from start to finish. And although this eatery specializes in fresh, sustainable fish, their banquet menus offer a wide range of dishes that will satisfy everyone in your group.

Bluewater Grill is within walking distance of many Redondo Beach hotels and beaches, making it convenient not just for events but for a great lunch or dinner out while you and your guests are staying in town. Drop by, relax with an exotic martini, and enjoy a quintessential beach city experience at one of the area’s best loved restaurants.
