Blue Point Grill is ON POINT!
Was here for a work dinner with my superior (a regular at this restaurant) and some other colleagues. Everything was superb. We had lots of oysters to start with. Got 3 dozen to start with between the 6 of us and then another dozen of our favorites. Best oysters I've ever had. So fresh, so well executed. Kudos to the chef.
For entree, I had halibut cheeks and they were really good! I tried some of my colleagues entrees and they were equally as good. Everything was simple, no thrills, as it should be with seafood.

The place is a BYOB and a neighborhood favorite. I encourage making reservations - it's great and people know it!

Decor: Inside, a bit retro; with tall ceilings. Can be noisy. In nicer weather, we enjoy dining outside, though view is of Nassau St.
Menu: Incredibly broad fresh fish selection. Have items impossible to get elsewhere. Also some beef, etc. for non-fish eaters. Typically a "combo" fish item on daily menu, so you can try two fish selections. Several starter-type selections, including oysters & soups. BYOB.
Service: Adequate - nothing special.
Quality: The quality of the fish is what keeps us coming back. Fresh, fresh, fresh. Simple preparations clearly designed to keep the focus on the fish. However, would like to see just a bit more creativity by having a "sauce drizzle" added to many dishes. Generous portion of fish. Sides of potatoes (such as garlic mashed) & coleslaw included.
Value: Prices reflect the quality of the fish, so acceptable value.

On this visit, we enjoyed the octopus appetizer, and entrees of corvina, mako, and steelhead salmon - all very good!

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.
