This place is SO great... Had a business meeting there, and sat at tables outside along the sidewalk and sat for over 3 hours... Being from out of state it surprised me it was a BYOB type of place, and after I learned the wine and beer shop was only 4 doors down, we were good... It seems like everyone... More

Blue Point is our favorite spot in greater Princeton. It is lively, has indoor/outdoor seating, and has a wide variety of fresh seafood in tasty preparations. The service is excellent.

As a consequence of the success of this restaurant, the tables are rather small. The confort of the guests could be improved. The food is excellent, despite my jumbo shrimps being slightly over grilled to my own taste. Service is fast but you do not feel pushed out when you are done.

I have visited Blue Point Grill at least 6 times no and every time I have the same, average experience. I know people rave about this restaurant and the fish is fresh for sure but it is pricey and service is non-memorable. Not bad, not good, just average. The bill is always at least 70 pp for maybe one appetizer,... More

This is one of our stops on our visits up from Florida for the last 18 years. We always try the selection of oysters samplers and are never disappointed. This last trip included a branzini that was perfectly cooked. Our waitress was attentive but allowed us our privacy and we lucked to have a breezy night with an outdoor table.... More

My wife and I have been to BPG twice in the past two weeks for dinner, on August 16 & 30. Both dinners were superb, as they always are. Our server for both dinners was Virginia, a consummate pro who is both warm and knowledgeable. Like all servers at BPG, she enhances every meal. As a matter of fact all... More

We enjoyed excellent al fresco service from fast, friendly, and knowledgable waitstaff, and felt very welcome as numerous servers pitched in to help, and they all knew what was going on. The list of fish offerings was extensive, and most were wild-caught, bravo Blue Point! I enjoyed the fish and chips (fries hot and clean but would be better fried... More

We went with a party of 12. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was quite good as was the overall atmosphere. It would be a 5 star rating except the chairs are quite uncomfortable to the point it makes me hesitant to return. Several of the adults and even the 13 year old complained... More

I love this place. Food is great but you gotta love fish and seafood. Staff is super friendly (it's the kind of place they remember your name). It's a fun place with comfortable, festive atmosphere and ample out door seating. Very busy because it is that good. Other than being busy the only downside is that every so often it... More
