Enjoyed the meal, although a little overpriced for the portion size. We were in a large group for a business dinner, and the service was quick. Crawfish cake was quite good.

We made a last-minute decision to dine with friends on New Year's Eve, and our experience was well above expectations. Blue Point Grill is always a solid seafood restaurant, but sometimes it is actually too busy and noisy. Surprisingly, on New Year's Eve it was not too chaotic. Our server was especially good - she knew the menu well and... More

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Princeton. The seafood is exceptional and the service is even better than the food. I have been twice in the last couple months and plan to return every time I am in the Princeton area.

Very good restaurant, very very good food!! The crabcakes and NY strip steak were excellent! The location is at the city center, the restaurant is not that big though and you have the feeling to be a bit close to another table, also a lot of noice. But the food makes of up for that, we went there 2 days... More

In this place they know how to cook fresh fish. Went there so many times cause I wanted to taste everything. If you are in Princeton do not skip the dinner here.

You would think a seafood restaurant with the reputation this one has and one that is attached to a seafood store would be capable of ensuring their fish aren't littered with bones!! I realize a bone here or there is not something to cry about but to have seven bones in one small Salmon filet, is bizarre. The supermarket does... More

Casual restaurant, more like a French bistrot but noisier. Service was very kind, also casual but fun. Oysters from New Jersey not so good: washed out with tap water and sliced up when opening. The chile sea bass was fabulous, not overcooked, perfectly seasoned. Luscious. BYOB - no parking

Very comfortable though always crowded seafood place. Good location away from what passes for hustle and bustle in Princeton. Usually impossible to get a table during normal dinner hours, but worth the wait. Fabulous paella. Wait until warm weather and sit outside.

Always a great place for fresh seafood. We had the crab cakes and salmon, both excellent. It's a BYOB in a casual atmosphere. Very friendly servers who answered all of our questions about the different types of fish. Not to mention they have the best sweet potatoes anywhere which come with your meal!

They have great food here, and the best selection of high quality, fresh oysters in the state. It's BYOB but if you're unprepared, no worries, there is a store a few doors down to pick up beer or wine if you'd like.
