Been there, done that, probably won't go back.

Parking was a little tough and it is still off season. Outdoor dining had a live band and it was just too loud to eat out there. Indoor volume was also loud. View of the water was nothing special but it was nice to watch the boat traffic go by. Service was friendly and good; food was fine... read more

One of our favorite places to unwind. The soup and sandwich, called 'Pick Two' offers great onion soup, and the Mahdi is always good. My son commented on the spinach and artichoke as the best ever. Prime big is very juicy and tasty.

The Banana Boat has been a Boynton staple restaurant since the 60's.... that does not mean its not updated and current. The location is perfect, and the scenery is spectacular and something that makes the dining experience all the more special . Go there on a sultry Sunday afternoon, and you will find a band outside , tropical drinks, and... More

We had dinner there Friday night and were pleasantly surprised to have live entertainment. I ordered beef kabob with Spanish rice and my husband had stuffed trout. Both of out meals were delicious. The service was excellent! It was very relaxing to watch boats go by as we enjoyed our meals. We were not rushed out.

Stopped in for dinner, and enjoyed a nice seafood selection on the waterside patio. Nice feature was the automatic awnings. they went down during the rain and even thogh we were by the water, we did nt get wet. Good drinks, worth a visit if you are in the area. Been around for ever but still great

Sat at the outside bar with my father. The bartenders were very attentive and made sure I had a cold drink in my hand. I ordered the Tempura fried Mahi sandwich. It was very good, and I don't eat fish very often. There was a live band that sounded great. We will probably be back at the Banana Boat before... More

Sat on the deck for a late afternoon lunch and caught some live music while enjoying a key lime pie martini that was out of this world. The view was amazing and the service was great. Good choice if you're in the area.

The shrimp and scallop dish was delicious! As was the Key Lime Pie. Right across the canal from Two Georges. Within walking distance to our condo.

Excellent service with friendly waitstaff. My husband and I go often to enjoy the food, music and the specials, especially during the summer! Sitting at the bar and seeing the boats is a very relaxing experience. All the locals are very cordial and we always meet new people. You can't top the food or the prices. We love it!!!!
