Visited Boom in Westbrook a couple times. Not really impressed. Also had dinner at the Old Lyme Boom restaurant ..... not very good and they finally closed.

We visited Boom for a third time with hopes of things getting better. We sat on the deck. What a mess! Plastic tables with cheap plastic covers (not tablecloths). The deck was dirty, the chairs had holes in them and everything was mismatched. While the food was okay, the prices are very high and the fact that this restaurant expects... More

Just had lunch there today. The one star is for the view. One waitress was hostess, waitperson, and busperson. Made for extremely slow service. The prices are astronomical, as high as $24.50 for a sandwich!!! Everything overpriced. Crab cakes were bread crumbs flavored with crab. Salad greens were rotting and the tomato was sparse and horrid.

Beautiful location at the end of Pilot's Point matched only by the exquisite preparations coming out of the kitchen. I savored every bite of the ocean fresh flounder francaise. Worth looking for. I found them in CTLiving - a local Connecticut resource. Enjoy!

I've visited the Boom 3 times before writing this hoping the food and service would match the view and quite frankly the price. Unfortunately, I was disappointed again. The view itself is outstanding, try to be there at sunset and you will be thrilled with the view by the way the view is only good from the deck so do... More

On July 5, 2014 went with wife and 3.5 yr old - was great! Not a huge menu but food was way above average and really surprised, nothing at all negative to say - and 715p reservation was best time in July for amazing sunset - saw fireworks too. The fried shrimp app and filet was great!

We've heard good things about Boom and based on some recommendations decided to entertain a guest from California. We choose Boom for its view of the water. That was the best part. We had a reservation thinking we were lucky to get one on short notice. When we arrived at 7 (prime time), the place was virtually empty and stayed... More

Will never go back. Ambience was dark and gloomy. Entire restaurant needs an overhaul. Only one waiter who was a nice kid, but couldn't possibly attend to everyone himself. Never refilled water. Never came back to check if everything was ok. My husband had a chicken sandwich which was completely overcooked and dried out. I had the flounder which was... More

This place missed across the board for our group of 4. I'd comment on service if we actually had a server. Almost two hours in a near empty restaurant for apps and dinner. Thankfully we had a terrific view (which is the one redeeming quality of this place and reason for two stars). we ate at boom in september and... More
