MONDAY FOOD POST - A RESTAURANT WITH BOATS NEARBY

When I don't have a recipe on Monday, and whenever possible, I will share a restaurant we have visited.  This one is the Blue Water Grille and Row Bar in Manteo, when we were in North Carolina a few weeks ago.

My sister-in-law found this one.  
It was a very enjoyable experience...
and the food was delicious.
If you would like to take a look at their website, this is the link.
We ordered off the lunch special menu.  One of the appetizers they were offering was fried pickles, which we shared.  
Gregg and I ordered the Asian-style Crab and Broccoli Soup.  It also was very good.
We all ordered the Seared Scallops Salad.
Scallops are one of my favorite seafoods.
And for dessert?  The Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding.  It was decadent, one of the best I had ever tasted, and we shared so that we wouldn’t be too naughty after such a scrumptious meal. 
I also enjoyed looking at the art on the walls...



and the stained glass hanging in the windows.


Afterwards we took a walk outside and enjoyed the boats.  If you saw my other post you might remember this area from another photo I included. 






The sculpture of a Marlin, as if jumping out of the water.
We always enjoy trying another restaurant, especially when on vacation.

Thank you for looking and have a great week.

  3. How lovely! The scallops look delicious! I love them fresh; the ones we get inland tend to be bitter.

  8. what a gorgeous place to eat, I love the look of the building and the stained glass is gorgeous. lots of beauty there. there is noting on the black board I would eat other than the pudding and that is something I gave up 3 years ago. the seafood I eat is shrimp or grouper, snook and sometimes flounder. mother and daddy would have loved all the foods on the list. I like thick white fluffy fish, with no bones

  12. Some restaurants are much more than restaurants and when they have excellent food it's icing on the cake.
