We had a magnificent dinner at Blue Point, arguably the best seafood restaurant among many that we have visited in years. Service was superb without being intrusive. Our Caesar salads with anchovies (not from a jar) were outstanding, followed by main course of Halibut cheeks and grilled bluefish. Both fish entries were superb. Visitors should know that this is a... More

The seafood is the best! Try the buffalo calamari and the grilled octopus. I always order their monk fish medallions. The atmosphere is always inviting and extremely comfortable. It's a BYOB which is a pain but at least you don't overpay for a good bottle of wine.

We were fortunate to be seated under an outdoor heater on a chilly Friday evening. Our server was attentive, but did not hover as we spent a bit of time talking before ordering our meal. Two of us selected the Bourbon Salmon from the specials menu. It was wonderful! The other two entrees were very good as well. This is... More

We took some friends who live locally with whom we were staying to thank them for their hospitality. The waitress didn't smile from start to finish and when we left the two girls on the door were too busy talking about something which must have been terribly important as they didn't have time to acknowledge our leaving. So much for... More

What am amazing restaurant! Was a beautiful Saturday evening topped off by an amazing meal. First time to the restaurant. Cute decor, especially the shark on the wall! Had the Corvino - melted like butter in my mouth. The fish had an amazing flavor. The entire meal was out of this world. Service was beyond excellent. Restaurant was packed with... More

My daughter loves seafood and was really looking forward to this dinner. I only like shell fish but figured I could figure out something to eat. In the end, she was very disappointed. She found her oysters very salty and could not even eat her halibut as it was too dry. My clams casino were fine and so was the... More

Over the last two years eating at Blue Point (for special occasions and for departmental dinners), I have seen some inconsistency in the food at Blue Point. The oysters are always fantastic, as is the octopus. It is in the cooking of the fish on main courses where I have the most inconsistency (1/2 of the time, overcooked). However, this... More

We had not been to the BPG for a number of years and were so pleasantly surprised how great the meal was. It was our son's birthday dinner and his pick--what a great choice! The menu had terrific choices for everyone. The service was perfect--attentive, but not too much.

Thumbs up for the chef 👍, I had a wonderful meal this past Sunday. I loved the Brie/raspberry puff appetizer. The waitress was friendly and attentive. I wish I could remember her name but it started with a "C". I want to say Catherine but I'm not sure. We were seated at table #14 if this helps. The food was... More

This is probably the most popular restaurant at Princeton. I believe it is owned by the fish store next door so it offers fresh fish every day. The outdoor sitting is especially popular in the summer.
