The title says it all. Don't expect an easy conversation with your eating companions.

“Fresh, good quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

If you want seafood, this is the place to go. The food is delicious! The fish is always so fresh, and everything is prepared very simply but they use quality ingredients. The buffalo calamari is my favorite appetizer! Very unique. They have a large menu - every fish you could imagine and lots of other seafood options. I believe they have a few good chicken and steak dishes as well, but I would definitely recommend ordering the seafood here!

It's a fairly small restaurant and always packed, so get there early!

it is a byob, fyi!

“Always Fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Fish is always fresh and consistant. Nice selection. Always a wait to eat and sit down. But frequent often!

“Hectic, crowded but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

We waited an hour for a table but didn't mind it as we enjoyed listening to the musicians playing on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. The seafood is fresh, delicious and perfectly prepared. The pace is hectic and the place feels cramped but, don't let that deter you from trying it. The service is excellent.

“Fresh food, great wait staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

We were very pleased dining at the Blue point Grill in Princeton this past weekend. We sampled a number of appetizers until we were full. Each one was fresh, delicious and expertly served. t was Saturday evening and it was crowded. However, the waitstaff were helpful, friendly and available without hovering. We had a great time. It is a BYO so grab a bottle and visit, but make sure to make a reservation.
