Food was delicious. We ordered the Huevos rancheros, challah french toast and a side of potatoes and bacon. It came out about 7-10 minutes later, hot and delicious. The coffee was good and a waitress would periodically come by to refill if needed. The OJ is very tasty but you only get a small glass of it. There is an option to get a pitcher, but that’s not much bigger. I would definitely eat there again. I’d suggest making reservations because it filled up quick. Great quality food and fair prices.

Decided to stay in our neighborhood for a quick bite to eat and came across On Point. There wasn’t a wait for a table the waitress sat us and took our order after looking over the menu. My wife had the cod fish tacos with hand cut fries. I had the farmer burger medium well. Everything was delicious and I will probably return for another bite to eat.

This place was so great. The food was “on point” as advertised. We came in with a large group. Our waitress was so nice and attentive. Great recommendations, everyone really enjoyed their meals. The steak was unbelievable. We also found ourselves ordering seconds of the brussel sprouts mid meal as well. I can’t say enough good things about this place

I had the steak and eggs breakfast plate. The steak was full of gristle. The eggs and sauce were good.
They don't have an espresso machine nor decafe coffe which is a problem for me. The selection of bread for breakfast was limited to whole grain or white toast. No bagels, English muffins, sweet rolls. The service was good and the place is spotless. I will go back because it is convenient to my house and the service has been good both times I was there.
When I was there for dinner, I had the fish and chipsand it was good..

Have dined here several times and also had brunch.
Consistently great food and service.
Only snafoo on my last visit was, even though it was early in the evening, they didn’t have any lamb burgers.
Otherwise, highly recommend On Point Bistro - its a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

I was so impressed. Everything we ate was fantastic. Steak frites were a standout for sure. Can't wait to return.

On Point Bistro is great! Been there multiple times and will keep going back. Cannot go wrong with the Clucker (chicken and waffles). It is rather loud during the busy brunch hours but that also makes it a good place to go with kids.

There were 2 other tables occupied on a Saturday night. They sat us next to a screaming child who threw toys across the room all night. Mussels tasted off. Entrees came out room temperature and were extremely bland. Steak was well done instead of medium. Before we began eating, the waiter asked if we would like any salt, pepper or hot sauce. Very odd to be asked that at a fine dining restaurant but once we tasted the food, we understood why. Getting water refilled and wine opened was a struggle so we had to ask someone else to assist us. Maybe it was an off night but they were most definitely not "on point" that evening.

Always a very good place for a meal and being that it is BYOB makes its a great “regular” spot for us. Don’t let the neighborhood deter you. Food is very good and variety menu is a plus.

We were first in the door for a breakfast meeting and that alone was the reason it was so quiet. The waitress was nice if not very attentive, the kitchen messed up main course dish and not only did she miss that but it took so long to get the replacement (not her fault) that we were ready to leave by the time it arrived. There was only one other table of two seated. The place is clean, the food is too. Don’t know if I’ll go back. There was another misunderstanding about my companion’s order as well. It’s a shame too. It was the type of place I could frequent often, but the food has to be On Point, like their name.

limited but well executed menu.
Roast 1/2 Chicken the best.
Comfy for local families and kids.
Needs more development- local bread, more cooking
