The Blue Water Fresh Fish Guarantee


Blue Water Fish opened Labor Day Weekend 2021 and regularly sells out its inventory of fresh local fish and take-out dishes specially prepared by owner Tom Infantolino. 
He's a second-generation restaurateur whose father (also named Tom) founded the family business in 1972. Tom discovered his love of cooking at his father’s fish market when he was in high school.

"I fell in love with cooking at my father’s Queens County fish market. I started off making three or four different items – homemade New England Clam Chowder, Traditional Fish and Chips with Flounder and Cod, and Lobster Roll. I used only the freshest fish that we would get right from the docks.

My Dad and I never cut corners. We would never let fish sit out for weeks like they do in the supermarket just to make a buck. Within a couple years there wasn’t enough room in my Dad’s store for the number of dishes I was putting out.

After my Dad retired, I dreamed of having my own place. Not in Queens where he had his market, but right here in Wading River where I have lived for 25 years. A near fatal car accident in 2019 made me realize it was time to make my dream come true. That’s how Blue Water Fish was born."

Tom's philosophy can be summed up as "I won't sell anything I wouldn't eat myself."

Blue Water Fish is really a labor of love. You really can’t appreciate it unless you come and try it. So, come on over to Blue Water Fish in Wading River and enjoy some fresh local seafood and say hello. Tom's here most Tuesdays through Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.

What are the Seven Secrets Behind Blue Water Fish?

Historic Wading River New York Duck Pond

Secret #1 – Blue Water Fish Supplied The Fulton Fish Market

Blue Water started in the seafood trucking business back in 1994. They began by delivering clams from Fire Island and the South Shore of Long Island to the legendary Fulton Fish Market. The market was located in historic lower Manhattan, near the Brooklyn Bridge, just a few short blocks from Wall Street. Founded In 1822, the Fulton Fish Market was the destination of fishing boats from all across the Atlantic Ocean. By the mid-twentieth century, however, fresh fish that came in by boat began to be trucked and flown in. The Fulton Fish Market then sold that fish to fine restaurants all over the country.
