Eclectic Atmosphere for Lunch in Delray Beach!

When you go to this place---and I surely recommend that you do...understand that where it is located---in the heart of the Atlantic Avenue Fun district in Delray Beach, that this is a very happy atmosphere--and loud! If you are looking for that environment and do not feel challenged by it, you... read more

Excellent place to go for Saturday or Sunday Brunch. Fantastic eggs Benedict and the Wife had a smoked salmon platter which she said was very good. Unlimited Mimosas/Bloody Marys' for about $ 12. Sit inside or out. good service. Will go back again.

The food and service were both very good at this expensive downtown Atlantic Ave. restaurant at the railroad tracks, but the level of noise here is not to be believed. We could not hear the normal voices of those across the table from us in our party of four persons. Despite the food and service being so good, I can't... More

Had heard this was a great place to go for seafood and was not at all disappointed. The service was great and all six of us had something different and we all were very happy with our choices. Indoors seemed very loud so we ate on the patio.

We passed by here after discovering the main street in Delray Beach which we loved as it was full of open air restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries, and very arty. After reading the menu, which has everything from sandwiches & pasta dishes to raw bar items and sushi, we decided to eat here since I love sushi and my husband loves... More

Go here often for business meeting. Food is always consistently good. It is the best food on the avenue. Get the ahi tuna salad. Very extensive wine list. Service is literally either really good or really poor. Some of the servers seem to struggle with more than one table.

The last visit to CO was with house guests for a Sunday lunch and the food was very good. That experience reminded me of the past visits which have also been above average. In fact, I should probably go there more often. I am not a big fan of the noise or congestion at this place, but the food has... More

The price was right and the size of the "po boy" and serving of french fries on the luncheon menu were huge to where we took half of it home. It was a nice touch that they serve bottled water instead of tap water at no cost

My husband and I have been going to Delray since buying a holiday home there in 2009. We love Atlantic Avenue and have come to know a few places here as our favourites. City Oyster is one of them! We have often gone there for happy hour for oysters and martinis. All drinks are half price and oysters and some... More
