Loud Room Great Menu

Follow me a little bit and you know I only eat wild caught fish. Finally a menu that highlights which are and which are farm raised. Our table, for six, was ready when we were, staff was helpful (we dropped off our wine bottles earlier and they had the white chilled and ready to go). Around the... read more

If you love seafood this is the best place in town. There is nothing bad on the menu. I've tried everything from the monkfish medallions to the Dover Sole, soft shell crabs & raw oysters. All fresh & delicious. While the place is small & cozy, I never feel rushed to finish up & leave. The staff is friendly &... More

Food was great waitress was great, we ate outside on the patio under the heater, which was pretty cool in January! My wife had the crab cakes and I had seafood and sausage paella both very good.

We sat outside and the heat lamps made us feel as if we were inside, only it was quiet. Our waitress, Virginia, was perfection. She only asked us how we were doing when needed and knew when we needed something! The crab cakes were incredible! We will definitely be back again!!!

If you like fresh seafood, this is your best bet. We have been going here for years. It is always crowded with the professorial crowd. There are many choices of fish and shellfish. The service is good. The only thing which keeps me from giving it 5 stars is that they pour on the sauces many of which taste the... More

The Blue Point Grill on Nassau Street has an excellent seafood menu. We have been there multiple times and the dishes always deliver. They are known for fresh fish and mussels from many places. They also have outdoor dining available throughout the year with heat lamps to extend the season. The place is BYOB and there is a liquor store... More

We have been loyal fans of BPG for almost fifteen years because the food, service, and atmosphere are always outstanding. My wife and I visited most recently on Sunday, December 27, and enjoyed a perfect seafood dinner. From our appetizer of steamed shrimp dumplings to our house salad to our entrees of grilled steelhead and grilled barramundi, this was a... More

When it comes to good food Central Jersey is nothing to write home about. But this place offers a great variety of fish and other seafood in a simple setting (they serve good steaks as well). They have about 20 different fish entries on the menu. I personally recommend Arctic Char. It's a BYOB place, and there is a liquor... More

We had a delicious family dinner here. The service and atmosphere was excellent and so was the food. The desserts were less interesting than the main menu.
