I love that On Point has pivoted and is now a brunch spot! There's plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, the restaurant is BYOB, and the food is so good. I can't wait to go back!

I came for a Sunday Brunch Date! The service was great, my server constantly made sure we were doing okay and our requests were taken care of promptly. The food came out perfect my chicken and waffles were amazing and my date loved his steak and eggs the steak was made perfectly (medium well) and the French toast was impeccable! Definitely our new go to brunch spot.

Servers and kitchen seem to be working well together. Food came pretty quickly and was well prepared. They have removed the center fow of tables to allow more distance between tables.

This is located in an up-and-coming area, and it is definitely worth a visit. Don't let the BYOB keep you from going! While they don't serve alcoholic beverages, really it's all about the food.

The good: The food was, as the restaurant name implies, on point. I had the DIY omelette and the egg was perfectly cooked, pillowy and just the right amount of moist. The toppings inside were delicious. The home fries IMO were over cooked and it seems they don't butter the toast, you have to ask for butter separately. But everything else was PERFECT and we all cleaned our plates. We had two types of burgers, one of their salads, one of their sandwiches, and two of their omelettes.

The kinks: It seemed like the folks who brought our food out couldn't tell the burgers apart from each other nor could they tell the omelettes apart. The omelettes ended up being served to the incorrect persons but still the omelettes were flawless. The burger, the waiter insisted on identifying it by the type of cheese. For the record, customers don't pick the cheese type. They pick the burger by the name its listed as on their menu. I would hope that the staff can identify their own burgers by name.

In short, there were a few inconvenient kinks in our experience but that was not enough to deter us from coming back in the future.

Thought this place would be better than it was. The food was just okay (under seasoned) and took over an hour to come out. With their 90 minute COVID table rule, this was obviously not ideal... They rushed us to pay while we were still eating and came over to kick us out when the 90 minutes were up... definitely won’t be returning.

My son and I had Mother’s Day brunch at On Point Bistro and it was wonderful. Our waitress was friendly and the service was terrific. I had the falafel wrap and my son had the blueberry pancakes. And we both agreed our meals were great. Definitely will return soon!

Three of us ordered: A burger (forget which one), gnocchi and grilled cheese (kid's meal). All items were outstanding. Fresh, tasty, served hot. This is a little gem. Spaced out tables so a little lacking on ambiance, but it says Bistro in the name so wasn't expecting white tablecloths. Check out On Point Bistro, they were definitely on point and have my recommendation.

Awful service. Rude while seating and didn’t come back after seating us. Waited 15 minutes and walked out. Would have settled for a hello and a glass of water but even that was too much

There’s a 90 minute time limit on tables that they will pick and choose who it applies to. At about 95 minutes into our reservation (mind you it took 30 minutes just to get our drinks), we were told we had to leave so another party could be seated. I have no problem about the required time limits, but if you’re going to make people get up it should be the table that’s been there longest. There were three other tables that were already seated when we arrived and they were still seated and eating/drinking when we left. Very disappointing, especially considering we tipped an extra 50% on a bill that already had 20% auto gratuity added.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff were attentive. The food was amazing! I highly recommend the breakfast nachos and getting the meal-sized option. I was upset when they were all gone. The blueberry pancakes are to die for. I personally like my pancakes a little less fluffy and with the edges slightly crunchy, which I typically only get when I cook at home. This is the first time I’ve ever had them at a restaurant, and they were On Point (pun intended). My boyfriend loved the French toast. It came with pecans and marscapone cheese. I didn’t have any room in my stomach to try them, but he amazed by the combination of flavors. We will absolutely be returning here!

I loved everything about the restaurant EXCEPT the time restraint. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday and were asked to leave in 90 minutes from the time we ordered our food. The automatic 20% gratuity was a surprise as well except the waiter and other staff members were extremely attentive and so we didn't mind that at all.

Google had this listed as Black Owned, it’s not. The music didn’t match the ambiance. It’s a larger hole in the wall, decorated like a southern kitchen in a large home. Very pretty inside. My glass had pulp in it from who knows where and I gave it back to the server. Instead of grabbing a clean glass he ran the hot water from the coffee maker over it and inside it then wiped and out and brought it back. A nice warm dirty glass for my mimosa. This place is BYOB (champagne) and they charge $7 for a carafe of lightly pulped OJ. I think the OJ is fresh squeezed.

I got the Clucker (chicken and waffle) it was delicious and big enough for two. My cousin and I didn’t want to stay so we split the meal and went to Green Eggs Café afterwards.

During these COVID times quality service has taken a nose dive due to 20% tip being included. I go out of my way to give more when service is better but there wasn’t much our waiter could’ve done. The least he could’ve done was bring me a new glass.

I don’t recommend this place for dine in but they do have carry out.

Food was amazing. It was by far the best breakfast I've ever had. The beakfast nachos, omelet, potatoes, and French toast all were beyond yummy! The waiter was kind and friendly. The hostess was not so nice and was the worse part of our experience there. There is no flexibility in the seating since you have to sit where they decide. Unfortunately, we were sat outdoors in the shade with a broken heater. The food was worth our coffee getting cold before we drank it. We will definitely return once it warms up.

Great food as always! Brunch here can’t be beat with awesome menu and the ability to BYO bubbly.

I come here a lot and the Clucker, Farm Omelette, Huevos Rancheros and Cuban are some of our favorites to order. But I have yet to be disappointed by anything I’ve eaten here so looking forward to trying the whole menu!

The food was good. I had the steak and eggs. The staff weren't very attentive. I had to ask for orange juice three times and I never got the french toast I ordered. Also no ice buckets were provided for champagne. It's BYOB, so I would definitely give it another try.

On Point was delicious and the BYOB aspect is an added bonus. They have plenty of outdoor tables. Their bathroom was a little dirty but otherwise it was a great experience.
