The Blue Point is a very popular place with a crowded, noisy vibe. The seafood is very fresh but the portions are tiny (speaking of fish). Also, I am trying to cut carbs, so I asked to have a vegetable substituted for my potato. This...More

We've lived in the Princeton area for a few years now and have heard raves about the Blue Point the whole time, so we finally gave it a try. The restaurant is small and doesn't really have any more ambiance than any "local dive" I...More
