“Great sea food in Princeton. Repeat customer.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is a high quality sea food restaurant in central New Jersey. The next best thing is about an hour drive to the shore. It is no doubt the best place in Princeton to get seafood. It is a BYOB establishment. The oysters are @2 bucks each,with a wide selection to choose from, but where else are you going to get fresh delicious oysters in Princeton. It is a popular place so I go during off peak hours so I don't have to wait. One time We were the first people in the place as soon as it opened. The wait staff is great and the menu has something for everyone.

“The Whole Seafood and nothing but Seafood”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Excellent, simply prepared very Fresh seafood in a wide variety. This is a great local place that grew out of a fish market - this doesn't mean no sophistication but it does mean outstanding quality of the ingredients prepared to highlight this, not over-seasoned or sauced.
It is BYOB and gets very crowded at peak times - Reservations NOT accepted, so be prepared for a wait.

“No Foo Foo Fresh Seafood”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We are regulars. Jack Morrison's Nassau Street Seafood store is next door to a simple, always good, seafood treat. We like to sit at the small bar in front of the kitchen, watching the chefs and the men shucking oysters and clams. We bring our own wine. At the booths and tables, the service is always great. You are advised to make a reservation because Blue Point is a busy place. On a nice night, outdoor seating is comfortable even though it is on sidewalk abutting Nassau Street. If you are a visitor, scan the room. Chances are you will spot a Nobel Laureate.

“love the food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

this is a wonderful fish restaurant. The fish comes directly from the same owners fish store next door. it is cooked beautifully with simple delicious side dishes. It can be a bit noisy but well worth it. Reservations suggested.
