These guys are the best! They hosted our son's wedding rehearsal dinner recently. The planning, atmosphere, food, service and attention were phenomenal. They helped us when the original venue cancelled on us without notice and words cannot express how easy they made this for us at The POINT/BMT Hospitality to switch just 2 months out from the event. They even accommodated gluten-free for one of our guests on the day of the event. I strongly recommend this venue for events if you need one in the future. I know that I will return. You pay for what you get and this was worth it!

What an incredible job you all did for our daughter’s shower! We are so grateful! The food was excellent, the staff outstanding, and the venue perfect! Thank you again!
Always have fun at The Point ==
The Point is that here there is more to eat with a fork than just pizza
I like the point. The bar staff are great folks! The pours and the food are always a draw!
There is a novel waiting to be written inside everyone in this bar.
Threw a shower at the Point this past weekend, thanks to all the staff at the Point, Sabrina, Max, Nellie and Dan for the AMAZING job! The food was incredible, the place was spectacular. 10/10. You guys are fantastic! Everyone raved that this was the best shower ever!

Consistently great tasting food....caring staff.....and generally a great ambience!
I attempted to communicate with The Point regarding our less than delicious dinner last Friday. Clearly management didn’t think it was important enough to attend to. I need to let prospective diners know that the Chicken Parm we were served was inedible. I would steer away from Italian entrees as the sauce was burned and just awful. It was very nice that a manager stopped by the table to check on us, so it is surprising that my private message was ignored. Definitely not good business. Additionally, we were not checked in on Open Table and received an email from them regarding our “no show”. Disappointing night to say the least...
Great food and excellent service!
