Holiday Celebrations at Bluewater Grill in Newport Beach

We dined as a guest of the venue

Earlier this week, we were guests of Bluewater Grill in Newport Beach, CA. The occasion was an early holiday date night complete with a Stuffed Lobster meal that is currently being offered at all the Bluewater Grill locations.

The stuffed lobster is a favorite amongst the regulars at Bluewater Grill and is a New England Holiday Tradition. The lobster gets stuffed instead of the bird. This tradition was started by restaurants in the Boston area but has caught on this side of the coast.

We arrived for our reservations and were immediately walked to our table. We chose inside seating, but the restaurant offers some great outside seating by the docks with great views of Newport harbor. As we took our seat, the freshly baked sourdough bread (unlimited for those of you who are bread lovers) was placed on our table.

After our server confirmed that we wanted the stuffed lobster meal, our New England chowder was brought over. The creamy chowder is served with crackers. Please note that you have the option of getting New England or Manhattan Chowder (we chose New England).

We were then faced with the main meal of the evening. The stuffed lobster is a feast for the eyes and stomach. The lobster in whole is cracked in half and stuffed in the middle. You are provided with all the necessary tools (including a bib) to ensure all the lobster is consumed. The lobster is stuffed with a special shrimp and buttery panic crumb stuffing.

The meal is paired with a delicious Cambria Chardonnay (up to two glasses comes with the meal).

Not that the meal was not enough, but we chose to enhance our special evening with a Mud Pie for dessert. All desserts are made in house at Bluewater Grill and they are amazing.

The meal package (excluding dessert) is valued at $60, but if you sign up for Bluewater Grill’s mailing list called eCrew, you can get the same meal for $40. Additionally, the restaurants run special meals once a month that you will be notified about.

Holiday Stuffed Maine Lobster Tasting Encore, a repeat performance on Dec. 11th. The only difference for the Dec. 11 tasting is a new, hand-selected wine pairing: St. Supery Napa Sauvignon Blanc. The feast itself, without the wine pairing, is available through 1/2/19 for the same $40.

Please note that reservations are required for this deal.
