I had the second ocassion to dine in this restaurant, this time with my guests sent by their hotel Concierge. Like my last visit, there were lots of empty seats in the bright front room available, but we were escorted to the dark back room where they packed all the people. I got an arrogant attitude from the front desk when I asked for one of those nice empty seats up front. The menu was the same as half a year ago, offering the standard overpriced fare without much creativity. Like my last visit, the wait for service was very long. As a seafood aficionado, I believe the baked oysters were good, the mussels a bit unfresh, the seafood chowder plain. They pushed for the expensive dish ""Nag's head grouper"" which I thought was unfresh and overcooked. My guests had the Halibut special and stuffed trout and all three of us did not finish our fish. The desserts were nice, but we went there for the fish. Overall, if you want the ""Olive Garden"" of seafood, Blue Point is the place. This is a restaurant that serves seafood, not a seafood restaurant. It doesn't even have fresh lobsters like Red Lobster. It seems the primary interst is to make money, not to excel in the food. THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR INTERESTING OR SUPERB FISH. The standard menu, unimpressive cooking style and quality makes it the McDonalds of its class, but you pay the high price for the decor and the name that it doesn't really live up to. I've had better seafood dishes (and service) in restaurants elsewhere in town, and even across the street at Metropolitan. So, if you are a seafood lover, don't go there. If seafood (or dinning out) is a rare treat for your gests, and you don't mind paying a lot, then this place might work.
Pros: Nice ambiance, if you ever get a table in the front room.
Cons: Overpriced, food has no taste, food not fresh, poor service with an attitude.
