Does not look like much from the outside or inside but food is great and reasonable. The point platter is outstanding. We had a few in our group that don't like seafood. They had catfish and chicken fingers that they thought were great. I will definitely return.

Been coming to the Point for years! at one "point" it seemed like they were going out of business - but I guess they were re-gathering. Now they have a $5 lunch to bring folks in. Once there, you'll enjoy the Royal Reds, the foot stomping fri/sat night show, and friendly staff.

Googlemap this little dive and don't stop - even when you think you're lost. This little understated gem has AMAZING food!! From the outside you'll have second thoughts about stopping and the inside is not much better, but it's clean and the food awesome. We heard this is where the locals eat and I can see why. My husband had... More

Eating at the point is a lot like mcdonalds, yOu always know what you're going to get. I've been eating there for over 20 years, and have never been disappointed. The proprietor, David lively, runs his kitchen with very little change in the menu. Although the menu is extensive, I seem to always order the same things. My favorites are... More

We have often visited this restaurant as our favorite seafood place. We ate there tonight, and it was not in any way the same. Our server was bizarre, throwing straws at us (family of adults). The food was not well-prepared. Two of our party did not get the correct fish and two others did not even receive their food on... More

We've been going to Perdido Key for years and we firmly believe that a trip to the beach is incomplete without a trip to the Original Point. It's not fancy and it's not on the water but the seafood is wonderful! They are known for the mullet (which is a local delicacy) but our favorite items on the menu include... More

We go here every year on our vacation- get the smoked tuna dip- it's amazing! We have never been disappointed when we stop here. Great seafood too.

In a previous review I said I had the best gumbo on the coast.....scratch that, The original point has the best by far. Also had the lunch special of lemon grilled tilapia with hushpuppies, slaw, and new potatoes which were excellent even before you consider the price ($4.95). An excellent experience to top off a day of Blue Angles and... More

Just had a fantastic true southern gulf dining experience at this place! Food was tasty, fresh and the price was very reasonable. Fried gator was one of the appetizer options, so we had to try it! They also have royal reds that were melt in your mouth tasty. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area and love... More
