Bluwater Bistro Add to a List
If a three-course Christmas dinner with your choice of butternut squash soup or field green salad; prime rib, turkey, or ham; and pumpkin pie doesn't tempt you, maybe you'll be convinced by the waterfront view, poinsettias, Dickens-style carolers, and Christmas trees (including a 34-foot one in front of the restaurant). They also promise "no Mariah Carey songs," which could be a positive or negative depending on your point of view. Meals will be served on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
