Beach view, good service

Food is average, but atmosphere is great. We went at 6 pm and the place was full, but no waiting. The Spinach and Artichoke dip was fantastic. They call it a fondue, but it's in a dip bowl. It has more cheese than the traditional spinach and artichoke dip. Mom had a separate order of it as her... read more

I (we) have not been to Boston's for a couple of years, and figured it would be a fun place to take relatives for a casual meal. Boy howdy, were we wrong. Boston's did a make-over a little over a year ago, and today the customers are paying for those renovations through their over-priced meals. Cheeseburger and fries- $13.95?? The... More

we come to Delray for a week every February and usually end up here on a beach day. Since we are from New England we typically stay away from items common at home. The food has been good, as are the drinks. Yes they are pricey, but that is to be expected in a prime water view location. Our server... More

Are here and the food was very greasy. When I mentioned this to the server she gave me a nasty look and left. No offer if something else or a replacement. You can see from all my other reviews I am not a serial complainer. The price of drinks was also exorbitant. I know it's on the beach but come... More

On a visit to south Fkorida, stayed in Delray Beach and local couple suggested Boston's. Very glad he did. Live music most nights and we found the music quality wonderful. Owner plays and enlists talented friends. Crew serves the people well in the action. I can't imagine not having a good time. It's a must stop if you're on the... More

My Brother-in-law and wife took us here (one of their faves) and we truly enjoyed the experience. Our error in not making reservations resulted having us sit at a high-top in the bar area on truly uncomfortable stools, but when we asked if the ladies could switch to the soft topped bar stools, the staff accommodated us with no issue....

If you're from New England you will love their fried clam dinner as well as other seafood meals. We were 2 couples ordering fried clam dinners which were great.

Visited for lunch and still finding it a bit too noisy and very average service at the table...about to give up after many years of going there...

Great views, and the food is much better than it used to be! The upstairs is way too expensive for the amount you receive. Eat downstairs on the patio après beach with the family. Everyone can get something they enjoy! Not fast food. But more real.
