Beautiful Views/Falls Short Sometimes

The views can be magnificent and there are several good dishes on the menu. But the staff can be a bit standoffish about seating people even when there are several open tables. While we understand that tables need to be held for people with reservations, the tables were still empty when we left... read more

We ate outside in this gorgeous Fall day. We both ordered the lobster risotto, which had lots of seafood in it.

Boom offers casual up scale dining in a very pleasant atmosphere with a terrific view of the marina and all kinds of boats coming and going while you eat. We were a pretty easy group to wait on as my dining companion and I both ordered the crab cakes served on a bed of salad. They were delicious, filling and... More

Lovely place to have dinner overlooking the marina, we were seated (at our request) on the covered outside deck. The view was exceptional. The food was very good if not exceptional and a little on the pricey side (as you might expect in a marina). The service was exceptional, fast, attentive, and exceptionally personable. I had the fried flounder and... More

Well, my wife and I took our boat from Branford ct to attempt to go to Boom. They need to change their name to implode. Thats where they are going. We went asked for a table and was asked if we had a reservation? We said no but were looking around to see over 20 empty tables. The only tables... More

Seasonal dining on Connecticut's shoreline can be epitomized by an evening at BOOM. Sit under the awning on a deck overlooking a marina full of sail boats and motorcraft surrounded by a salt marsh and watch the sun set and the moon rise over a delightful dinner and glass of wine. No wonder you will have difficulty getting seated without... More

This was my first time eating at Boom and it was very good! Finding Boom however, is a little difficult. Once we found the location, we pulled into the parking lot, but could not enter because the bar was down and there was no one at the guard house. If we were not meeting our colleagues, we might have turned... More

The atmosphere inside is very nice. If you sit outside you overlook the marina. So either way - inside or outside, you can't go wrong. They have a nice menu and the food quality is very good. We also thought the service was great. Very nice place for a casual get refined meal. Kids are welcome. Very nice.

We visit often. The food is great especially the tomato bisque soup. The view from the deck is beautiful. I would highly recommend Boom on your summer shoreline visit
