The Blue Point Ratings and Reviews
If you want a true dining experience, Bl ...
If you want a true dining experience, Blue Point has never failed us. It's truly our special occasion restaurant when we're at the Outer Banks. Everything from front desk, wait staff and food presentations are first class. The hardest thing about Blue Point are the decisions presented on the menu and then the specials. Don't get too caught up in the menu items until you've heard the specials.
We have dined at the Blue Point for dec ...
We have dined at the Blue Point for decades and it remains as one of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks (OBX). It is important to remember that that many restaurants on the OBX are seasonal and close in the off season, usually between the end of October through Mid March and those which stay open often have reduced menus and staff. The Blue Point is an exception. It's open year round with a great menu and service. The menu remains creative but not trendy. The service is attentive but not overbearing. Although there is room for improving what sometimes is a stuffy and stiff atmosphere and recently a lack of traditional Martini glasses. For Martini purists like myself having a Martini served in a wine glass is sacrilegious. This lack of traditional Martini glasses at restaurants and bars is a recent millennial virus which is spreading across the county and needs to be addressed soon as possible. One more note. The Blue Point is on the Sound side of Duck and the sunset view (not seasonal) is in itself worth the visit.

No better restaurant on the Outer Banks...superb service and yummy food...especially the she crab soup, baby back ribs, and the lump crabmeat sauté. If you still have room for dessert, you can't miss with the creme brûlée. We will definitely go again!!!

While in the OBX for our 10 year anniversary, I googled fine dinning. Google came up with this restraint being comparable to L'Auberge Chez Francois in VA....it is NOT in any way other than the price tag. The focus on local food was appriciated and the meals were well prepared. The alcohol listings dominated the menu which left it feeling short on food selections. Although it was extensive, I would not consider it notable. We were sat next to the kitchen and had a hard time with typical dinner conversation.
Overall, I was disappointed I chose this location to celebrate such an important event. The food is very good but the price tag does not accurately reflect the entire dining experience.

As we expected, the Blue Point was excellent. Went for our daughter in law's birthday and she was very happy. Great service from a caring, attentive server (had her a few times, excellent). We were glad to see a few new options on the menu, and hope that the chef keeps adding new additions periodically. Absolutely one of the best restaurants in NC. Well done.

We dined at the cozy restaurant twice during our visit to Duck. Once we dined at a table with friends with an excellent server. Our entree choices of crab cakes, pork loin and desserts were outstanding. The wine selection was well matched with our choices.
On our second dinner, we opted to dine at the bar which was a different but completely enjoyable dining experience. We had the opportunity as a couple to meet others, engage with our very knowledgeable and friendly bartender. The additional bar menu was a nice compliment to the regular menu. The cozy atmosphere and styling make you feel right at home.
As always, we enjoy The Blue Point- it is our go to choice when dining out anytime of the year at the Outer Banks.

The parsnip soup and the romaine/kale salad were a great start to the meal, followed by the short ribs and the gnocchi with pheasant, which were both outstanding. But the best was saved for last-the apple cake with vanilla ice cram and bourbon toffee sauce was one of the very best deserts we have ever had anywhere. Connie was wonderful and took very good care of us.

Beautiful setting overlooking Currituck Sound. Great menu choices with daily specials at lower price point in smaller proportions. It would be good if they also came with a bit of a side dish (or noted to order them ala carte). Service was friendly and informative (except more info needed as mentioned above). Food was delicious!

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at The Blue Point. We rarely drive to Duck for dinner from our house in Nags Head but will definitely go back to The Blue Point and will highly recommend it to others. The food was creative, the cocktail and wine list had a lot to offer and the setting on the sound was just lovely.

Our dinner at The Blue Point was delicious. I had scallops and my husband had the beef tenderloin. Both meals were cooked perfectly and our drinks were delicious as well. Service was very good. Only down side is that it was loud. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Because our son had told them it was our anniversary, they were especially attentive - even surprising us with champagne before we left. The food was creative, delicious and plentiful. Blue Point is one of our favorites!

After having had an amazing dinner at Blue Point this summer - having not been here in years- we decided to spend a birthday celebration here recently. True to form, our dining experience was fantastic. Wonderful ambience, service, food, & scenery.

The food was terrific and the service was even better. Mark did an outstanding job, his timing and attentiveness was perfect, and he was a pleasure to talk to. Looking forward to our next trip to OBX and another night at the Blue Point!

Tim was our server...with a great memory and a good sense of humor. I thought the flounder on a bed of mushrooms, sausage, and apples was especially yummy, and our friend loved the classic crab sauté. We love coming to BP in all seasons, and the fall sunsets are very fine! See you soon. Thanks.

From the warm welcome to the truly attentive and superb service, to the brilliant food and wine, this is our totally top restaurant on the OBX! The bartender came over to chat about our wine selection, and his input was great. Our server was both knowledgeable and gracious. There was an issue with our reservation and the owner was wonderful in every way. We shall return, all the way from Houston, as much as we can! Best Crab soup ever, and it was a truly exceptional dining experience!

terrific meal! Love the sound-side bar area for pre-dinner cocktails. Disappointed no music last Sat eve...hopefully next time!!
Our food was great but 2 of 4 of us had to send back our meals once served for reheating...no biggie in the scheme of things!!

The Blue Point never disappoints. We frequent the restaurant at least 2x-3x each year and we continue to be impressed by the attention to detail, knowledge of the staff, and the creative food options. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you have a great experience. Can't say enough good things and thank you for making my wedding anniversary such a wonderful event!

Dinner at The Blue Point is always fun and very good food. I typically get the crab cakes and made the mistake of trying the crab/salmon entree which was just OK. Everyone else enjoyed their entries and the key lime pie was a hit. We have been going to Blue Point since it opened in 1989 and will always make it our #1 favorite spot in the Duck area.

We have great expectations whenever we visit the Blue Point,and they are always met. It is hard to choose among great appetizers, terrific soups and salads, notable entrées, and delicious desserts. I almost anything you choose will be a winner. The Apple cobbler with lemon buttermilk ice cream was terrific.

Went here twice in a week and could easily have gone more then that. We make it point to eat here every time we vacation on the Outer Banks. We've had the good fortune to invite family and friends here as well, always to rave reviews.

My husband and I discovered Blue Point on one of our trips to the OBX and continue to visit each year. This year we traveled from Southport, NC to the OBX for one night just so we could have dinner here! We always make a reservation to sit at the bar...the bartenders are the best. Blue Point never disappoints!

Always good, always reliable. We trade between Ocean Boulevard and Blue Point each time we come to the beach. This year it was Blue Point. Had a great table, plenty of room around it so no nosy neighbors. It had a good vibe, abit loud for easy talking but not too bad. The food was excellent...I had the North Carolina crab saute...ate every bite. My husband had the biggest pork chop I've ever seen and apparently our neighboring table had ever seen! Impressive. Plus a generous wedge of mac and smoked cheese, and an interesting slaw. It meant plenty of leftovers for home! We shared a bottle of Prosecco but skipped dessert. The result of too generous entrees which can be a good thing. Love being able to see the water, as a bonus.

We recently spent a week at the Outer Banks for our annual vacation. We had dinner at the Blue Point two times during out stay. It is our favorite restaurant in the northern Outer Banks. The food is always excellent, along with the service. Can hardly wait until our 2017 OBX vacation to eat at the Blue Point again!
