We went for my husband's birthday. It started out kind of quiet, but by 7pm it was a bit loud once it was full. The table for two is way too small. They need stands for the ice bucket as that made it even worse. It is a BYOB place. Service was friendly and timely. The bread was average. My... More

If you want an amazing seafood meal, with excellent service, Blue Point Grill is the place to get it. Fantastic selection of fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail or chowders to start. And wonderful dishes centered around seafood for entrees. The etouffe is a favorite of one of my dining companions...he eats it every time we go. I find it a bit... More

Reservations are a must if you want to sit inside and are eating out on the weekend! This fantastic gem is usually full during dinner time. Even walking by on weekdays it looked fairly packed. They do have outdoor seating as well. This is one of my favorite seafood spots in all of New Jersey. The ingredients and food are... More

Please note, this is a BYOB restaurant and if you forget there is a wine store next door, so don't worry. Appetizers started off with crab and guacamole and a separate puff pastry brie appetizer which were both amazing. Dinner was halibut, which was amazing with a side of smashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. Dessert was a chocolate cream pie... More

I give this place an 11 out of 10, it was that good. I was amazed that monk fish was on the menu. It was done to perfection! Our waitress was better than THE BEST. I had never eaten raw oysters. She made it a point to bring me one to taste, I'm hooked!

This restaurant was highly rated and i booked a reservation. I made the right choice. We had a wonderful meal. I have never seen so many different types of fish on the menu. The fish was wonderfully prepared, and the staff very attentive. Only complaint is that the restaurant is a bit noisy. If you like fish prepared the way... More

Great fish dinners, super service. We could not believe how busy they were at 4pm on a Saturday. Skate, swordfish and grouper medallions all good. Personally, the grouper was the hit. Only one issue-- they forgot to bring the salad that was ordered. Would definitely return.
