I said I would report on the SCP Bluewater Grill at SCP and I appreciate all your input. We went to the SCP Bluewater Grill after the theatre on Sunday. We wanted to go to Antonello's, Morton's or Gustaf Anders, all closed on Sunday afternoon. So, since I often go to the Newport location, due to popular demand from visitors to the beach, we went to the SCP Bluewater Grill. It was very sad for me, maybe because I ordered the wrong thing. I always order oysters or mussels. My friends do not eat such things!! Anyway, I ordered something different. Big mistake, totally tasteless even though I peppered everything with tabasco, malt vinegar, salt, tartar sauce, seafood sauce and everything else available. My friends were also were not at all impressed. You are all right about the amibiance making a difference and were right on about the how BLAND everything is, I heard you!!! Now my problem is I am meeting other friends at the Redondo location in a couple of weeks. I know I will stick with the oysters and mussels but since they too don't eat that, it creates a problem. What do I tell them? All of you report with such honesty and I trust that but now I am concerned if I should change my friends minds or just go with it. We usually meet at Kincaid's or Chez Melange, so this could be interesting, hopefully everyone will be open minded. Again, you all are always wonderful with your posts, inputs and great reading. Thanks!!!!
