The Chesapeake Bay Meets the New England Shore...
We’ve combined our explorations of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay with our love of the New England Shore to bring the freshest seafood available to the Shenandoah Valley. You’ll find some of our favorites like lobster rolls, fried clam baskets, soft shell crabs, oysters and seasonal local catch. All served by friendly, knowledgeable staff in a welcoming and comfortable coastal atmosphere.
From Sea To Table…
We believe in sourcing sustainable seafood whenever possible. For decades seafood has been consumed without regard for its natural habitat. In recent years, however, these issues have become more prevalent, and we look forward to lending our hand in the protection of these creatures by supporting safe, practical, and efficient farming methods.
…And Land Too
Though our focus is seafood, the land lovers can affirm our continued commitment to local, with a variety of pasture raised offerings along with the best of the valley’s produce. On our menu you’ll find selections from some of our favorite Virginia purveyors. We believe supporting local agriculture helps us provide unmatched quality in taste that may have been lost due to commodity farming.
At BLU Point, our team is committed to knowing the story of our food; where it came from and how it got here. We train our staff to engage with guests to determine their preferences and customize each experience to ensure it is exactly what they expect. Though relaxed and casual, attention to detail is our top priority.

Meet Our Proprietors
Memories of our time in Connecticut and more recent trips along Virginia’s Eastern Shore inspired us to open BLU Point Seafood Co. We’ve made Staunton our home for over a decade and opened our first restaurant Zynodoa with a focus on inspired Southern Cuisine and commitment to local products. We are bringing the same farm to table experience to a more casual atmosphere here at BLU Point. We hope to become your choice destination to celebrate with friends and family or simply gather and enjoy a meal. - Jeff & Susan Goode
