Today, Mission Hills’ beloved Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill opened its second location in Ocean Beach. The seafood hotspot known for its organic, fresh seafood is coming to Sunset Plaza in Ocean Beach.

Blue Water Seafood and Grill offers a fast-casual concept with a full seafood market stocked with fresh fish, shellfish, smoked fish, lobster bisque and more. The new space will be bigger than its Mission Hills counterpart and will offer large booths with family-style seating and wood tables with unique custom designs of fish carvings in them. There will also be an outdoor patio area illuminated by white market lights with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean.

The restaurant offers the option to customize any meal by choosing the fresh fish and marinade, and choice of sandwich, salad, plate or taco. The menu is led by the restaurant’s award-winning “Track Taco,” which features grilled fresh wild Pacific shrimp marinated in chipotle butter, topped with Maui onion and mango slaw. The taco is served on a fresh corn tortilla with melted cheddar and dressed with homemade white sauce, tomatillo sauce and avocado.

Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill is a family business, operated by brothers and Ocean Beach natives Matt and Judd Braun. They collaborated with San Diego-based restaurant development group, Social Syndicate, to create a family-friendly destination in Ocean Beach. The new restaurant is located at 5083 Santa Monica Ave. near the Ocean Beach Municipal Pier and adjacent to Wonderland Ocean Pub and OB Surf Lodge.
