Located on the Intercoastal waterway in Boynton Beach, the Banana Boat offers traditional seafood dishes and tropical drinks in scenic setting. Often extremely crowded, the restaurant is popular with locals and tourists alike. The menu offers sandwiches and entrees along with interesting appetizers and salads.

My mom wanted to go here for her 86th birthday. We sat almost right on the water, watching amazing boats entering and leaving the nearby marina. I would not say the food was "cutting edge", but was very good, well prepared, and excellent service. We all opted for seafood dishes, and certainly were not disappointed, from the grilled salmon, to... More

Whether I selected the seared tuna salad, shrimp tacos, fish and chips or stuffed shrimp. Yes I've returned to eat here often and the views... More

Good restaurant for both lunch and dinner located on the inter coastal in Boynton Beach. You can have your choice of both snacks and full meals. They have a large bar inside and I have heard that it can be a pickup spot on certain nights but I cannot attest to that since I am married and not a drinker.... More

I gave a 4 star rating because Monday thru Thursday (maybe Friday also) beginning at 4:30 they put out a nice hot/cold Free appetizer spread. Very unusual for the Palm Beach area. Being on the ICW doesn't hurt either!

Lively atmosphere, very casual place although valet is available. Outdoor seating is also available overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. A bar and live music outdoors also. Food is average and the place usually has a good crowd of people from all age groups. Enjoyable.

Great food, wonderful ambiance. Really great and unusual choices for adults and kids. Attendees ranged in age from 10 months to 76 years and everyone had a great time.

We went there for dinner with another couple. Three out of the four dinners were not brought out right. Service was lacking and so was the food. We will not be back.
