    I have been to the Blue Point many, many times. It has been an all time favorite of mine. However, I need to mention some changes. They now have electronic tablet menus. I'm fairly young and thought it was a great idea ... Until I had to use it. Please give me back the big menu!!! It is so much easier to read and see all of the options. Our waitress also Tried her very best but was clearly not supported by other staff. We saw her bussing tables. We also ordered a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives. We were told they were out. Ok, well that happens often and the bartender stuffs them. Not this time. Got the olives with the blue cheese on the side to stuff ourselves. Again, the waitress went above and beyond to give us at least the option. Food was good as usual. Service just mot up to par.

    I have eaten at this restaurant several times. The food is normally good. My last visit my wife ordered the tuna. It was terrible. For a $30.00 piece of fish it should be sushi grade and melt in your mouth. 50% of the tuna couldn't even be eaten. There are many good restaurants in Fort Myers. We won't be back to this one.

    Blue Pointe Restaurant and staff consistently provide a good meal in a friendly and efficient manor. We go there for special occasions and are never disappointed with our food or the service. My husband always enjoys oysters from the raw bar. The seafood entrees are fresh and tasty. The prices are reasonable.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Blue Pointe and the evening was total perfection. Reggie was our waitperson and she anticipated our every need - even brought several "tasting pours" of wine so that we could select what truly appealed to us. Reggie also brought out a complimentary slice of their delicious key lime pie to top off our lovely dinner. BTW - the shrimp cocktails were large, firm and delicious as was our seafood entrees. Altogether a lovely evening and we would heartily recommend Blue Pointe to one and all!

    BPOB & SG is so good every time we dine here. I love the iPad menu and wine list! The service is great and the prices reasonable including the wines. The fresh oysters stand out as amazing, and I had twin lobster rolls as my entree! Fantastic! My wife went with the parmesan crusted lemon sole, which was ultra-fresh and delicious. We can't pass up the chance to eat here whenever we are in Ft. Myers.

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We make it a weekly routine to dine out at least once. So, selecting a good place is always the challenge. Blue Point Oyster Bar & Grill wins out more than any other in town. Great menu, excellent wine selection and enjoyable service. The oysters are the best in town. Because it is such a good place I HIGHLY recommend reservations, especially in season when the snowbirds land.

    I always enjoy dining at The Blue Pointe. It's fall and a great time for outdoor dining. The service is always excellent and every meal I have had is fresh and delicious from the warm bread, the cole slaw with blue cheese to steaks and seafood. Soups and salads are freshly prepared and uniquely presented. So yummy!

    My wife and I decided to try out Blue Pointe for a special occasion. What a pleasant surprise! We are both seafood lovers and were not disappointed. The selection offered throughout the menu was impressive. I had the sea bass which was incredible. My wife stayed with one of her favorites - coconut shrimp - which were very large, perfectly cooked and delicious. Can't wait to go back.

    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.

    Dined on 9/22/2014
    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:)

    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!
