    Our previous experiences at Blue Pointe had been great, but unfortunately, I cannot say the same about this visit. After we ordered, it took an unusually long time to get our salad and bread. Then the main course came before we were finished with our salad. I have a feeling someone forgot to bring the first course in a timely manor. The grouper we ordered was good, but it was a fairly small serving. I would estimate approx. 5-6 ounces. And yes, it appeared that someone had changed the recipe for the bread, which I had always loved. It was not nearly as good as it was in the past.

    Very good meal. We've been here several times and have usually found everything better than 'very good', more like beyond expectations. This time left us slightly disappointed, maybe expectations were too high... We'd decided to take a friend here for her birthday, raving about it's excellence. Mild disappointment...steaks were not cooked to order (ordered medium-rare, overcooked to nearly well done), and we weren't given the signature and excellent blue cheese slaw with our meals. The waiter was great, as was the manager, and offered to redo the steaks. Not really a good option for us since the rest of the table had their order, the wait for new steaks seemed a little pointless. The manager did buy us a glass of wine, which was nice.

    When the lobster fest is on, we always come at least twice to dine. Last Friday the lobsters were not available which was understandable as the chef didn't like to serve them. Two of our party of four had the coconut shrimps which were over cooked so had turned hard. The crab cakes were hardly seasoned, so very uninteresting and the three Caesar salads were sprinkled with plenty of Parmesan cheese but had no dressing over it whatsoever. We asked for some which was forgotten and for the anchovies which belong on it but had to ask twice before the waiter brought them. The hamburger was delicious and served just as asked. All in all not good enough for the price we paid! I think we will skip it until the lobster season is on next year.

    Another terrific eveing of delicious fresh food, friendly, attentive staff & fun! Had a rervtn for 3 ppl- sat outside on side patio - requested Capable & easy going waiter Albert- never disappointed with his stellar efforts and follow thru! Great fresh clean Oysters-coquina's--altho, i do miss the larger selection that is indicative of time of season fr SWFL. I did enjoy immensely my raw oyster's & my gf's had the kale quiona salad as an entree (wonderfully seasoned & delish!) & the grilled chicken sandwhich- that again was juicy and yummy! My fellow diner's live the house bread & remarked on how good it was with their meals, :) We love the staff here! Almost as much as the fresh food (oyster's)They r always diligent in my special reqsts:)

Met & greeted by many of the staff I know by name and love feeling like they r one happy collective family that has all been wrking together along time. They r all indeed a well oiled fine machine. Dave gave tips to Albert abt my food allergies and requests for special attention to entree. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Sat out on the side patio, a fav spot, & delighted in being outside al fresco watching the passers by while we indulged in fresh delish food! Love Blue Pointe & all the employees! Wonderful fresh food and hard working ppl! Thank you!

    When my husband and friends feel like Lobster we always go to Blue Point. It has the best lobster we have had in the Ft Myers area. We always have good service. And the Cosmo is also the best I have had in this area! ! Staff are always friendly and acomodating. Their remodel is very nice but the only thing I would change ( as being an older person) is less high top chairs/tables ! We always go here for New Years Eve dinner also !

    Our grandson was visiting from Ohio, and wanted to go to his favorite restaurant, which is Blue Pointe. At age 13, he had the bucket of crab legs, loved the blue cheese cole slaw, and finished off with a piece of coconut cream pie. WOW, we all were amazed, and our waitress gave us extra special attention. Great evening as usual

    We have to visit Blue Pointe each trip we make to Ft. Myers, and it seems to get better and better. Seafood is either local or fresh flown in, and there is never a shortage of choices. The raw bar speaks for itself, with several oyster options. The 3 soups: New England and Manhattan clam chowders, and gazpacho are all amazingly good. Sushi appetizers are a fun addition. The signature bleu cheese cole slaw is worth the trip alone, as does the garlic bread. The favorite dish is Parmesan crusted George's Bank lemon sole, which is great, but tonight I had the sole simply broiled, and it could have been mistaken as Dover sole!! Value-priced wines, great service, and an iPad-like menu complete the package as a top seafood restaurant in the area!

    My family has dined at Blue Pointe many times over the years. It has always been my go to spot when someone wanted a seafood restaurant recommendation. I bragged about the food to our recent guests but the food went down hill. The grouper sandwiches had one small strip of grouper that literally covered 1/3 of the sandwich. The salmon and broccoli were both cold. I told my waiter about this when asked how the food was and still didn't receive any discount. I hate to complain but we love good food and good restaurants and Blue Pointe just wasn't the same this time.

    Our first experience with this restaurant but will not be our last. Wife ordered crab cakes and being from MD we set a high bar for this entrée. While we have had better in and around Baltimore these were very tasty and certainly as good as any we have had in FL. I ordered the blackened grouper and it was cooked to perfection. Just enough to spice to add flavor but not overpower the fish. They gave us key lime pie as it was my wife's birthday. We failed to ask if made in house but it was the real deal and was great. All in all a great experience.

    My partner and I enjoyed a great evening here. Our server Bethan was outstanding. She anticipated our every need, was fun, friendly and very efficient. Their warm crusty bread is the best. The blue cheese coleslaw very different and good. We enjoyed entrees of parmesan crusted sole and lump crab cakes. They were very fresh and perfectly prepared, served with excellent sauces that complemented the seafood without overwhelming it. For dessert we had Key Lime Pie and coconut cream pie. The coconut cream pie was very good but the key lime pie has to be one of the very best I have ever had.

    We stopped by for lunch on our way to the Ft. Meyers Airport and had an enjoyable meal. I would say the only confusing issue was the use of ipads for menus. Really ingenious and a first for me, but their were some kinks that they i hope worked through since our visit. Seafood was fresh, service was excellent and next time we head down will stop by once again.
