THE local place for seafood.

Count on two dozen or more fish entrees choices, several oyster varieties and much more fro the sea. Noisy, expensive, but you won't be disappointed if it's seafood you're craving.

My girlfriend took me for bday. It's a byob. So we brought a bottle of wine…which went great with dinner. We started with the Jalapeño and Lime Grilled Shrimp. It was really good. She had Halibut and Sweet Potato mash. I had Fried Tilapia and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. We shared Creamed Spinach. Everything was excellent….except my Tilapia. It wasn't bad.... More

The varieties of fish are great and well prepared. Food is delicious and attractively served. The grilled calamari and octopus are sensational. I like to order steamed vegetable and dip in sauce from aforementioned dishes. It is so much better now that they take reservations. It is BYO, so definitely prepare. If you are seeking a romantic dinner or an... More

The concept is terrific, the location is wonderful, and the setting is great, so Blue Point Grill has all the makings of a great neighborhood restaurant. The problem? Every time I go I am left a bit disappointed in the flavors and preparation. It's fine. But I yearn for me. Exception to this observation? An absolutely standout clam chowder.

Blue Point has an extensive menu with many different types of fresh fish available. The "simply prepared" option is excellent. You simply select the fish you would like and they grill it will olive oil and herbs. I had the snapper and it was very well prepared - tender and very flavorful. In regard to the sides you select, the... More

You must try the pistachio crusted rainbow trout- it was scrumptious ! I also tasted the Halibut which was also delicious. The server was very friendly as is the atmosphere. We want to go back ASAP!
