Excellent food and service but were shocked at the dirty dishes being carried around the corner and left outside near where we parked - lot of cans and bottles stacked up which was unsightly and made me wonder how fussy they were behind the scenes...More

Having an attachment to a fresh fish market next door you can't beat the quality. BYOB and if you forget there is a wine store next door.

You wouldn't think that you'd find excellent seafood this far inland, but you'd be wrong. The Blue Point Grill is an exceptional seafood restaurant, with some of the freshest fish I have ever eaten in a restaurant that isn't located at the shore. Located in...More

We go to Blue Point Grill very often and love their Hazelnut and Cherry Crusted Tilapia and also the Jumbo Crab Cakes. It is a BYOB place so you can enjoy with your favorite wine.

I had the sea scallops and fries. It was basically 5 scallops seated and a little olive oil on top. They were nice scallops but really lacked the flavor. My coworker had the twin 5oz fillet and she liked hers. We had fried calamari for...More

The most difficult thing about dining at the Blue Point Grill is choosing from the long list of fabulous seafood choices. Luckily our server Melissa helped us out. One of our friends asked for "not rare, not medium rare but in between " when ordering...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
