Popular seafood restaurant abruptly closes its Wayzata, Bloomington locations


Blue Point Restaurant & Oyster Bar – a staple in Wayzata for almost 30 years – has closed its doors along with its Bloomington location.

The seafood specialist announced on its Facebook page Thursday evening it was closing for business, much to the disappointment of diners.

"Friends, the rumors are true," it said. "After nearly three decades of bringing you the Twin Cities' freshest seafood, we will be closing for business."

A similar message was left on its Bloomington Facebook page, thanking patrons for their support since it opened its second location four-and-a-half years ago.

The Business Journal reports that reasons for the closures have not been made clear as of Friday.

The Wayzata restaurant is located a stone's throw from Wayzata Bay in Lake Minnetonka, and is known for its extensive seafood offering and its selection of oysters from New England and Canada.
