On recent trip through OBX, we were looking for non-chain, elevated dining options. Our entrees were creative and deliciously prepared. The location on the sound featured an breathtaking sunset. We enjoyed our evening at The Blue Point.

We always make a "point" to make reservations for Blue Point when in town at OBX. An outstanding dinner every time that never disappoints ! Great, friendly service as well. Be sure to make reservations and try the She Crab Soup !! Holy Toledo !!

Our meal was OUTSTANDING!! We started with she crab soup with a touch of sherry, fabulous. I had the saute of calamari with smoked sausage, tomatoes, roasted red pepper, olives and capers. That was unbelievably good. Our dinners were crab cakes and sauté d lump crab with smoked salmon and herb onion spoon bread. Both were outstanding. The best might have been desert. Ginger ice cream with ginger cookies and caramelized ginger over apple butter. We enjoyed an after dinner drink sitting at the sound and watched the sunset. That was a WOW. Can't wait to go back.

We have been going there for more than 20 years, and it is still outstanding food and service! It is especially lovely to see familiar faces of servers, and owners! Nice to be welcomed back! It is our favorite OBX restaurant :)

Excellent as always! I had the salmon special over soba noodles and it was delish. Others had the beef, scallops and catfish. All were very good. Tried the calamari starter and it was a nice and lighter change of pace. A wonderful place for date night or out with friends.

Dined at Blue Point three times in two weeks. Each time was excellent. Had different fish preparations: tuna perfect, salmon the best ever. And I've eaten in many great restaurants around the world. All very creative, beautifully developed flavors and seasoning. Who would know there is superb dining in Duck!

We had been here several years ago and thought we would try it again. The first problem occurred when we were seated In the dark restaurant the light above our table needed the bulb replaced. I had to use the flashlight on my phone to see the menu. When asked if we could move to another table we were moved to a table next to the original. They sat another couple at the unlit table.
Two appetizers were ordered. A chilled potato soup. Too much cream and too many chunks of something unidentifiable made this very unappetizing. The fried green tomatoes were what was expected. The problem was the crab meat topping. It was like cat food in looks and the taste was not much better.
A tuna entre was almost ruined by a sweet tomato jam on top of the tuna. The tuna was cooked perfectly and when the tomato scraped off was quite good. The catfish was cooked nicely but the slaw plus a sauce was too much. One or the other but not both.
I hope this was an off night and not common.
We made reservations before going to the ...
We made reservations before going to the Outer Banks because this was on Open Table's list of 100 Restaurants with Best Views. We had a good view from the boardwalk outside, but once we entered the restaurant, we couldn't see anything from where we were seated. The only people with a poorer view were the ones seated at the bar with their backs to the water. (I figured they weren't there for the view anyway.) We asked to be moved to a table by one of the many windows, but were told that wasn't possible, even though 3 window tables opened up while we were waiting for our food. The food was good but pricey, and certainly not the best we had while visiting the Outer Banks. If we should ever return to the Outer Banks, this won't be on my dining schedule.

Excellent food, great drinks. Ambience & atmosphere were perfect. Service was INCREDIBLE!!! Will definitely be our go to spot next time we are in Duck!!! Perfect place to celebrate my mother's birthday while on vacation!!!

The Server was knowledgable and pleasant. The ambiance was excellent. We came to the OBX to celebrate our 50-year friendship with another couple and the Blue Point is the perfect place for good conversation punctuated with delectable food, good drinks, and a gorgeous sunset.

Although we enjoyed the overall experience, we actually liked sitting outside by the bar area (even in the rain) rather the over crowded restaurant. The fried green tomato appetizer special was a disappointment, practically flavorless. We both had entree specials. The tuna was done to perfection although the rice was a bit too busy. The short rib had a wonderful smokey taste, not like typical short ribs. It was a nice experience but we wouldn't rush to go back.

We have been dining at The Blue Point for many years during our vacations to the Outer Banks. The food is always very good and service is top notch. The She Crab soup is our favorite appetizer and the crab cakes entree never disappoints. And the must have dessert is their warm pecan pie! Delicious!!

The food and service was excellent at Blue Point. We dined at several places in OBX that weekend and Blue Point hands down had the best food. We also caught some of the live music in the back area and the band was great!

We're locals, so we have eaten at a lot of restaurants in the area. The Blue Point is our favorite! We especially like the Sunday Brunch time since the view of the sound is available from every table, and the price range of the menu meets our financial situation. The people are always friendly and the service is top-notch.

Something was off at The Blue Point the other night.
Oh yea, the food was good as usual. My wife and I have eaten there many times. We were there this time with family from Raleigh.
We had just pitifully poor service regarding the bar and drinks we ordered. Our first drink order was very delayed. and then our waitress returned, about 15 minutes later, to re-ask what the drinks were that we had ordered!
Later in the meal, after flagging down the water deliverer several times for refills, we flagged down our waitress to order some wine for dinner.
Regrettably,this wine never arrived.
The Blue Point lost out on the money from that lost transaction!
Hopefully the manager reads this, and corrects the matter for future guests!
