The new owners must have thought they could do it better--NOT. The new decor does not fit and makes it appear cold and stark. The new menu and food quality took a nose dive also. Gone are many customer favorites like the variety of fresh fish, steamed clams and more but have been replaced with cheap fries, commercial cole slaw... More

This place is so much fun. I had been a couple times before the remodel when it was still mostly a fish shack and put up with the retirement home feel due to the pretty good an pretty cheap food. New Smyrna has never really had a good restaurant that could compete outside this local area but the new Boston's... More

This restaurant is awesome. I came here for the drinks and they have a superb selection available. I tried a bunch but my two favorite were the Narangansett and Stump knocker. I ordered onion rings to go with the beers and it was divine. That tartar sauce.... so good. My friends and I also ordered both their desserts, the key... More

Fantastic experience, beautiful renovation, wonderful staff. I ordered lobster for a special birthday celebration. The chef/manager brought the catch to the table and introduced himself prior to preparing a delicious feast for us. We were very pleased with the meal, new decor and pleasant service. Will definitely return for fresh New England seafood!

We have been coming to New Smyrna Beach for many years. We usually go to Bostons three or four times during each 10 day visit. I am sad to say that we ate at Bostons for our final time last evening.

Boston's was a regular stop for our family every summer for 10+years. We miss the casual family spot with great seafood! The new owners changed the menu which reduced the options and the prices were greatly increased. Now the have remodeled to more of an upscale restaurant. New customers may love it but old customers were lost. We won't go... More
