What Makes a Classic Neighborhood Restaurant?

You know, the place where you can kick back, relax with a beer or a meal, and enjoy. No stress, no hard work in the kitchen, and certainly not a long way to go to get there. What makes a classic neighborhood restaurant and bar, in our opinion?

Every good restaurant needs a good menu crafted from high-quality ingredients, and we’ve got that covered at BluWater! Take a seat at one of our tables to peruse the menu for your taste in seafood and fare from the land. We pride ourselves in making as much from scratch as possible, with some fantastic ingredients.

Great Drinks
For a game day beer or a happy hour cocktail, your neighborhood eatery has to have options for something seasonal and new as well as your favorite brews and brands. To keep entertaining your palate all year round (and also to keep you on your toes), we like to change our cocktails seasonally. Aside from our regular beers on tap (including Bud Light, Manny’s, Stella, Blue Moon Belgian White, Pyramid Hefeweizen, Elysian’s ‘The Immortal’ IPA, Mack & Jack’s and Guinness), we always have a seasonal selection to enjoy. What’s more, our wine list is always at the ready to enjoy at happy hour or to compliment your meal!

Friendly Service
Service and atmosphere are key for a classic neighborhood hotspot. Each of our staff members at BluWater are trained – not only to tell you what you’re eating or what you might want to try, but to make your experience with us a great one!

Easy Parking
Within the city limits, it can be a nightmare to find parking. This is particularly true in Green Lake, with all of the cyclists, runners, walkers and sports persons are taking up all of the street parking for their jaunt around the lake. We can’t blame them, but we know you still need a spot to park your ride while you dine. When you’re not walking to BluWater Bistro in Green Lake (it’s that close, where walking to dinner won’t make you huff and puff), you can park within the block! Did you know that you can park for free in a nearby garage when you’re dining at BluWater? Here’s how to get there: As you drive west along the northern part of East Green Lake Drive, continue past BluWater and take a right in front of Duke’s on Densmore Ave N and look for the neon parking sign. You’ll take an elevator up to the lobby next to BluWater – it’s literally right there!

Come and visit your neighborhood restaurant, the BluWater Bistro in Green Lake, for all of the above!
