The fish is excellent & the servers pleasant & attentive. Inside it's a bit noisy & sometimes you have to wait for a table. Not open for lunch.

My family and I enjoy Blue Point for what you would expect, the seafood dishes. I have not been disappointed with the quality of the dishes at Blue Point. The preparation compliments the taste of the seafood. The chefs never try to overpower the taste of the fish, unless of course you go for the blackening. This is a BYOB,... More

We've never had a bad meal at Blue Point. The fish is fresh and the dishes are delicious. At a recent visit, we had Canadian Lake Trout based on our server's recommendation and it was wonderful. One nit, the "authentic cajun" etouffee came with muscles which I found quite odd. Other than that it was quite good.

This is my go to place for any special occasion as well as family and friend gatherings. I love their fresh seafood and especially love the crab martini and oysters. Located in the charming town of Princeton.

Very good, very fresh and well prepared seafood. Although my favorite from Blue Point is their Raw Oysters. I never hesitate to order them. They are always fresh from the docks in NYC. I have a friend that works at the docks, and has said they are there every early morning hours to get their fresh seafood.

What I really like about this place is the charming outside seating and the overall simplicity of the entrees with the very focus on the delicious market fresh fish. It doesn't come with much flavors in a positive way: just fish, a little of flavors as capers or white wine and simple mashed or baked potatoes. But what you want... More

Easily my wife's favorite restaurant in the area. My most recent visit was for her birthday. I don't know if I have had a fish dish here I didn't like. The Suzuki Mulloway is my personal favorite when on the menu. My wife's favorite is usually the lemon sole. The Greek salad is very good. The chowders and bisque are... More

The people who dined next to us drive up from their shore home in Avon-By-The-Sea twice a week to dine here, so that should give you and indication of how good the seafood is at Blue Point Grill. My app was the shrimp cocktail, fresh and delicious. H had the fried shrimp dumplings. Very good. His Entree was the Rock... More

Blue Point Grill used to be the best restaurant in Princeton. Whenever we wanted to celebrate an event at a restaurant in Princeton we chose Blue Point. On our last visit we were very disappointed. The oysters were great, as usual but everything else was not. The scallops were very greasy and the lobster roll was so tiny: about two... More
