My husband and I went here for dinner tonight. Without a doubt this place has the best seafood around! The parm/pistachio crusted trout was excellent. I had the mixed grill with Chilean sea bass and salmon. Both fish were cooked to perfection. We split an apple crisp made by a local chef. Make reservations!!!! The place was packed at 5:30....

We regularly go here when we want good seafood. It can get a bit crowded and long waits on weekends, but it's usually worth the wait. Great that it's a BYO only a short 2-min walk from a nearby wine/beer seller. What's recommended from the menu - all the sides are good but the brussel sprouts and french fries are... More

Blue Point Grill is consistently presents very tasty and fresh seafood and fist. The shrimp and crayfish etouffee is my favorite. It different from what you might get in Louisiana but still great. The service is efficient and friendly. My only complaint it the noise level is quite high. Some sound deadening materials are in order.

Excellent seafood selections, even for my husband who doesn't love fish. The outside seating is quaint and not in crowned downtown.

Stopped in for a quick seafood dinner and was not disappointed. As a single, I sat at the raw bar and admired the many varieties of oysters... Very fresh, deliciously prepared fish. I had the coconut thai snapper which was great. This is a BYO restaurant, which is nice for keeping your bar bill down-- and there's a liquor store... More

Great seafood and friendly waiters. They have fresh fish and delicious calamari. Their fist store next door is great quality and trustworthy. This is a must visit restaurant in the princeton area.

Great atmosphere. Myself and 6 girlfriends had dinner here for a girls getaway. This place is crowded and we couldn't get reservations until 8:45 but the food was worth it. Not an empty table anywhere. We started off and shared appetizers. They weren't very big portions for 7 woman to share but they were all delicious. Our waitress suggested Chilean... More

We had a reservation and were seated right away. We brought our own wine and beer and were ready for a great evening. We were not disappointed! We started off with four different varieties of oysters, they were all great so fresh! Then we moved on to the salads and fresh fish. It was very hard deciding from the amazing... More

This place is a BYOB It's not fancy but the fish is always excellent. They have great oysters too. The wait is usually long so make a reservation well in advance if you don't want to wait an hour for a table.
