Blue Point Grill has the freshest seafood. It is always prepared perfectly. It's not fancy but it is simply great seafood.

This is THE place to go in Princeton for fresh seafood. They also have excellent side dishes. We like the outdoor dining in warmer weather. BYOB.

When you are looking for a fresh fish dinner, well prepared and plentiful, this is the place to go and enjoy. It can be noisy in the dinning room but the food makes up for the acoustics.

We are local and dine here almost every month. This is one of the best place for grill fish! Their fish are always fresh and grilled perfectly. They know what they are doing with fish for sure. We tried some other non fish dishes and were not as impressive. Services are great here too. Reservation for weekend are needed specially... More

Blue Point Grill is a wonderful seafood restaurant. I visit Princeton several times a year, convening study seminars at Princeton Seminary, and I make it a point always to schedule dinner at Blue Point Grill for the last night of our meeting, making it the high point of all our meals together.

Very nice service, extremely accommodating to all requests, and really enjoyable heated outdoor seating. The lobster bisque was delicious, the warm goat cheese salad was very good, swordfish very good but a little on the small side, and the clams casino were nice. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were a bit small and the cocktail sauce needed a little... More

Had dinner with friends/colleagues, arrived and were greeted by a very friendly waiter who said they did not have a liquor licence but pointed us in the direction of the nearby store. Food offering changes daily and is excellent fresh fish at s sane price. Would go again as both atmosphere and food were just great and there was no... More

Blue point grill was rated #1 on Tripadvisor. Based on the reviews, I was expecting a little more. The place is very casual and very, very noisy! The lobster bisque was very good, as was the clam chowder. Two of us had scallops which were also good. The calamari was ok but did have tentacles which I love. Salad was... More

If you are a foodie, this one won't disappoint. Absolutely outstanding selection of fresh seafood prepared without a cholesterol concern in the world (ie butter galore!). Worth every calorie in every bite. The sides are also amazing. Be prepared for some noise and a more casual atmosphere. Also, meals come quickly so don't come to dine. But if you want... More
