This a great spot. We went to "Outside The Box" which is their patio bar. It's right on the water. There is usually a little bit of a wait to get in but it is well worth it. Three of us had the Surf & Turf and it was cooked to perfection. South African Lobster and a 10 oz. filet... More

I had the shrimp salad and it was awful. My husband had the crab cake entrée which they advertised on the menu as jumbo lump crabmeat but was back fin-no lump crabmeat. They didn't charge for his dinner when he complained about it. I couldn't even eat mine but they still charged for it. My son had the fried Trio... More

First time ever my Tripadvisor friends have let me down. We come to the Point often for a one day beach day and usually finish off with a seafood dinner but my expectations were set a bit high I guess. They sat us immediately at around 6pm which was great. Blake our server was exceptional and experienced, very personable and... More

After reading some good reviews about this place, we were expecting some really great food. when we arrived on a Saturday night, this place was super packed, we knew there would be a wait but didn't mind as long as the food was good. We were lucky enough to grab two seats at the bar and order a couple appetizers... More

Very nice place for simple fresh seafood. A casual dining experience with efficient service and beautiful sunsets. A great place to sit outside after a day at the beach. Love the Alaskan King crab!

So after a long day at the beach we came across this restaurant and thought we would give it a try. We are glad we did. We had a lovely meal. The seafood was phenomenal. We ordered fried calamari, king crab legs and all kinds of shrimp. The salad bar was delicious as well. The staff was friendly and service... More

The shrimp Box came up a super nice place. Cold beer on tap, the chowders were fabulous. I had New England and it was loaded with clams... More
