The Blue Point
Never disappointsEach year, when we come to the Outer Banks, we look forward to dinner out at Blue Point. Every year we have a fantastic meal, and start making plans for our next visit.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis mother's day dinner wasThis mother's day dinner was a gift from my boss because we are working on his beach house. My daughters are at home in Virginia so he wanted to make the day special and really recommended this restaurant, especially for the sunset which our reservation made it perfect timing. I felt in every way pampered by our waiter Bruce and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant not only for the ambience but for the excellent dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good!The Blue Point is my favorite restaurant on the Outer Banks. The food is imaginative, superb and consistent. The sound view is gorgeous, especially for sunsets.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM40th anniversary dinnerWe got to Blue Point early and took our drinks outside where we sat at a soundside bistro table. When we went in to our table, we were pleased to see that we had a waterfront booth, and although it was dark by then, it was still one of the best seats in the house! Our servers were friendly and attentive, and were very apologetic when one of our soups was missing a key ingredient (crab). It would have been nice if they had "comped" the soup, but they did treat us to dessert since it was our anniversary. The food was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and are looking forward to going to Blue Point again. By the way, Blue Point was recommended by several friends of ours on the Outer Banks, and we are so glad we took their advice!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining for locavores in OBXLove this place!! Absolutely charming restaurant--warm, intimate, excellent service. Nice view of the sound, and a well-paced meal--you do not feel rushed, the food is amazing. This visit, had the oyster stew and pickled shrimp as starters--wow! As always, the scallops were divine, as was the Mahi Mahi special (There was also a veal chop special that sounded wonderful). The pecan pie as always was perfect, but the strawberry-rhubarb crisp with lemon buttermilk ice cream had me considering licking the bowl clean. Easily the best restaurant in OBX.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experience.We've been coming to the Outer Banks for over 3 decades. Since we first experienced the Blue Point it has bene our favorite place to dine and the major reason we return to the Outet Banks in spring and fall.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as Always!The Blue Point never disappoints! The meal was fantastic -wonderfully prepared. The service was spot-on for dinner. Our server was very knowledgable and agreeable to those in our group that had special ordering needs. I highly recommend it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to be excellentContinues to be excellent in every way and very responsive to special requests.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I recently ateMy wife and I recently ate at the Blue Point on our anniversary. The food, as always, was top shelf. Service was excellent and we were extremly impressed that they not only recognized it was our anniversary but offered to seat us at the same table we had on our anniversary last year. This attention to customers sets the Blue Point above all others. We will be back and recommend them to anyone looking for a great dining experience on the Northern Outer Banks.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, beautifulExcellent food, beautiful setting and superb service. Only issue was that the website said Wednesday was "buy one get one free" dessert, but at dessert time the waiter informed us the special ended the week before (but said "he would take care of us" - which he didn't!) . we were billed full price for 4 desserts. A sour ending to an otherwise lovely evening.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerennial Favorite.Consistently very good, with a great sunset over water and friendly but efficient staff.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to The Blue PointWe have been to The Blue Point 3 times in the last 2 months, having just bought a home in the area. The food and service is always great. We have never had a bad course there. Last week when we ordered a $60 bottle of wine they brought the wrong vintage. When the server checked, she came back and said they were out of the vintage on the wine list but would substitute a better wine ($17 more)for the same price. Who does that? Our only problem is the prices. I know it is a resort area but it kills me to pay $11 for a salad. If you know that going in, you will have a fantastic meal. Love the bar too!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Mountain TroutWe had the Mountain Trout and it was very salty which I was not expecting. There was live music and rather loud. All in all the meal was good just not one of our betther dining experienes at the Blue POint.

I enjoy that they utilize locally grown veggies & fish. Their dishes are very creative and wonderful. I always have a great meal and love to take "out of towners" to this location.
The view/ambiance is out of this world, sunsets that are spectacular.
Great wine choices.
Terrific staff that have been with the restaurant for many, many years. Service is excellent!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlwase a great choiceThe Blue Point has significantly expanded their wine list including plenty of relatively expensive choices. The food was excellent as it always is.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff is excellent,The wait staff is excellent, very accommodating. They swapped out a spicy side for the best tasting grits I've ever had. The Rock fish special was excellent. The desserts were top-notch. Great views for the Currituck Sound3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional, yet dependableWe make it a point to dine at the Blue Point one to two times every year when we are in the area (typically for one - two weeks). We always enjoy the pairing of ingredients and the southern nuances in their recipes. Have never had a bad meal there.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always very goodThe food is always very good and the host and wait staffs are excellent. It is wonderful to see the same people year after year, and we started eating here in 1997.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Dining!!Absolutely superb as always. A trip to Duck wouldn't be complete without a visit to Blue Point Grill. We have been going to this restaurant for many years and it never fails to meet all our expectations.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Blue Point is one of myThe Blue Point is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere....3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis cozy, warm and friendlyThis cozy, warm and friendly restaurant is the GEM of the Outer Banks of North Carolina in Duck. The food was fantastic and the sunset views were exceptional.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutsanding!Exceptional in every way, consistently great food and fabulous service. I had three different meals there while on a recent stay in Duck, We had lunch and dinner Saturday and then brunch on Sunday. It's great to see a restaurant thrive even in the off season. The service is always top notch, yet subtle even with off the menu requests. My favorite thing is that the ladies at the table are always served first,something so simple makes a huge statement about the way the owners wnat their patrons treated. Blue Pointe is by far the best place to eat on the OBX and our is the best restaurant I've ever been to.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great and still is.Always great and still is. A favorite of ours when we visit the outer banks.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was #4 for 2013 for usThis was #4 for 2013 for us and once again, The Blue Point was awesome. I cannot find fault with anything they do in this restaurant. When we arrive, they put you at ease. They are so laid back but at the same time polite and dutiful. Again, we don't look at the menu we just listen to the specials and choose. I actually wanted a soup, an appetizer and a main course because they all sounded great. Settled on the flounder and the soup, both of which were just fantastic. Also, if you time your arrival near or just before sunset, do it. The view over the sound at sunset is so peaceful and beautiful, if that doesn't float your boat, you don't have a boat to float in the first place.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at The Blue Point hasDinner at The Blue Point has been a tradition with our group for several years. This year we numbered 11, the largest group ever, and The Blue Point didn't bat an eye. The food is superb, the atmosphere relaxed and warm, and the view can be spectacular. It had been raining all day, but the sun came out for us as we arrived for the dinner. The service was impeccable. I consider it a testament to the quality of the restaurant that the man at the rental car agency in Norfolk told us we just had to go the The Blue Point. Our annual Blue Point dinner is a highlight of your Outer Banks experience.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
