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.

Blue Point Grill serves the freshest of fish in a casual atmosphere! Service is attentive and the food is excellent. Try the crème brulee for dessert!

The fish here are freshly caught and generally served without a lot of unnecessary garnish, and a broad array of options. If you love the taste of fresh seafood, this is a great choice. Service is very good, with friendly staff and a welcoming, easy-going atmosphere.

A lovely place for seafood aficionado - their menu as the waitress explained were specific ones each day.

We a group of four (also with a vegearian amongst us) had some great food options, although the vegetarian amongst us did not have... More

I love this restaurant. The oyster tasting menu is phenomenal. It includes 18 oysters and is in the $50. range. We get two for three people and each get a dozen oysters. You can pick which oysters you want to try and they come labeled with little popsicle sticks so you can keep track of your favorites. The salads and... More
