Princeton - Pet-Friendly Places


Blue Point Grill

258 Nassau Street,
Princeton, NJ
Our favorite when it’s got to be seafood. The raw bar offers 14 different kinds of oysters and clams. If raw is not your thing, start the meal with Tuna & Avocado Poke, Jalapeno & Lime Grilled Shrimp, or one of their other amazing appetizesr. For the main course, it’s either the Jumbo Lumb Crab Cakes or Shrimp & Seafood Etouffee for us, but there is so much more to pick from. Enjoy it all in on their beautiful pet-friendly patio.
