About

On WeddingWire since 2007

Based in Redondo Beach, California, Bluewater Grill is a restaurant venue that hosts weddings. Founded in 1996, the team continue to offer their customers fresh seafood of the highest quality, with a focus on sustainable fishing and healthy living. Located on King Harbour, couples who book this venue can enjoy stunning scenic view while delighting in exquisite food and a romantic ambiance.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue offers a choice of two indoor event spaces for celebrations. The Avalon Room, which boasts high ceilings and lantern chandeliers, can host up to 120 people. For more intimate gatherings, couples may prefer The Captain’s room, which has space for 60 people. Guests can admire the harbor from floor to ceiling windows, which also allow natural light to flood the space.

Services Offered

The restaurant accommodates ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners and engagement parties. Their team of dedicated staff will be on-hand during the celebrations, along with an event manager who can assist with the planning process. For the couple’s convenience, they will organize the setup and breakdown of the event, and can provide items such as linens, flatware, china, and glassware. The venue also offers bar service, with a range of beers, wines and premium liquors. They can facilitate both a cash bar and an open bar, and will provide bartenders for the duration of the event. Parking and valet services are available on site.

Cuisine

This restaurant prides itself on the cuisine served within its walls. Using their own boat ‘Pilikia’, their fishermen catch seafood that is brought to the restaurant later that day. Fish are caught in season and accepted only from fisherman that are following the company’s values of sustainability and environmental awareness. When arranging the cuisine, couples can customize the wedding menu to suit their style and tastes, and may avail of buffet-style, plated meals, and hors d'oeuvres. Food stations are also available, offering delicacies such as oysters and clams along with accompaniments of hot sauce, lemon, and fresh seaweed. While this restaurant is renowned for seafood, the chefs are skilled in a variety of delectable dishes like sirloin steak, burgers, and salads. Children's menus are also available, with options including pasta, grilled cheese sandwiches, and soda floats.

Good food and great location!

I am so grateful we chose Bluewater Grill for a welcome reception for all our guests the night before the wedding. It was wonderful! The Captain’s Cabin was the perfect room: it is private but spacious and has great views of the marina. Vida, the events manager, is organized and responsive; she made planning very easy which I greatly appreciated given all the other details and planning I was managing for the wedding. The food was great and the serving staff were kind. Thank you Bluewater Grill!

The Bluewater Grill is a gem thanks to Vida

My husband and I just had our wedding reception at The Bluewater Grill for 90 people in their Avalon room.
Vida, the event coordinator, was an absolute delight to work and was so helpful in planning our wedding reception. Vida is knowledgeable, professional, and detailed. She went above and beyond in helping provide her expertise in topics we weren't knowledgeable, like decorations/wedding schedule/food. She was also a big help taking the role of Day-Of coordinator on our wedding day and helped set up our decorations, favors, entrance table.

This venue was a very good value for the money. We needed to meet the minimum Food and Beverage money amount for the room, which we reached with our appetizers and dinner for 90 people.

The views of the Avalon room are beautiful overlooking the boats in the marina. I received many comments from our wedding guests that they enjoyed the appetizers and food and that the venue was beautiful.

Thank you Vida. You and the staff were all pleasant and made the reception and our wedding an amazing experience. We will be recommending The Bluewater Grill to family and friends in the future.

I had my Wedding a couple weeks ago and working with Vida Dye and the Bluewater Grill in Redondo Beach was a great experience! Vida Dye is their Events coordinator and she is very detailed and hands on when it came to help plan and organize my Wedding Reception. I had multiple special requests ( custom wine shipments, classic car and photobus, the In-N-Out truck/trailer, vegetarian needs etc) for my Wedding and Vida made it all happen and I didn't have any worries. Connecting with her with our multiple meetings or email correspondences went really smooth. I highly recommend this venue for the location, service, views, and value. My family had an amazing time!
