Had an early dinner with friends. We shared the grilled octopus, which was perfectly prepared, delicious and tender. The Char was good, a bit dry. You must get the East Point oysters - THE BEST! Service was attentive. Sat outside and the tables were just...More

Fried oysters, crab cakes, salmon, and sea bass were all wonderful. Cole slaw was tasty too - would have liked more! Service was excellent.

Enjoyed octopus appetizer, salmon and halibut entrees. I would come here again for fresh seafood. It is a bit on the pricey side though. Everyone is very nice.

I am a huge fan of soft-shelled crab. Their preparation with lemon, capers, butter and fresh tomato was perfectly seasoned and the most delicious soft-shell crab I've ever tasted. The Manhattan she-crab soup was wonderful as well. Great waitress, enjoyed sitting outside in the shade.

The food is always terrific here! She- crap soup, blackened catfish, rockfish special--you can't go wrong. Love that it's a BYOB! Be careful where you are sitting, tends to be a bit noisy.

We had a great outdoor dining experience with our pup last night. From the moment Fernando greeted us, we felt right at home, and he showed us such kind attentive service from start to finish, even on a super busy night. We will be back!...More

While visiting from out of town we decided to try Bluepoint Grill. We got there early and it was already crowded. Everything we had was very tasty and we enjoyed our meals. I was a little surprised when the wedge salad came out with Russian...More

The restaurant is on the main drag of Princeton, called Nassau Street. Lake Carnige is near by, but restaurant is not on the lake. They serve food outside, as well as in doors. The food is great, but the place is small... More
