We have been visiting New Smyrna Beach off and on since 1991 and for some reason have never eaten at Boston's Fish House. Even stranger is the fact that we always stay at Ocean Reef Villas, which is right across the street. On our trip the week of Labor Day we decided that even though we have our favorite places...

This is the gold standard of fried shrimp...or seafood . The one others are judged by. I have wanted to try other items on their menu but always get fried shrimp and onion rings. My out of town guests always insist we go back. In fact, they will go without me! The lobster roll is incredible, cole slaw outstanding. oooh... More

They have the best fried shrimp and whole belly claims (per my wife). We are originally from Maine and enjoyed the fresh seafood up there, which is hard to duplicate in Florida, but Boston's Fish House is the next best thing.

We have been going to New Smyrna Beach for 10 years. Boston's was recommended our first time in town and we have been going back every time since then. We have never been disappointed! The fried shrimp and onion rings are the best around, the service is great, and the prices are fair. Boston's has become our "two timer" when... More

I have had several friends and neighbors recommend this restaurant over the last couple of years. My wife and I finally got around to trying it. We were both disappointed with the food, it was edible but nothing special and it was not inexpensive. I didn't like their set-up either. First you order your food at the counter and then... More

We were looking for good, fresh seafood in the New Smyrna Beach area. We tried the fish tacos, but they were bland and had no flavor. We do not recommend this restaurant.

This is a great place if you're looking for New England seafood. One of the few places in Florida where you can get full bellied clams and not just the strips that most southern restaurants around here serve. We had the fried captain's plate which had clams, scallops, haddock & shrimp & onion rings - a generous plate and adequate... More

My entire family and I have been patronizing this restaurant since it opened ! Always had excellent food and service until the original owners sold . Wait staff had been there for many years, now the wait staff has changed every time we've gone there . They always state their seafood is flown in DAILY, but when questioned as to... More

ok …the cons are , you come and order your food and pay for the food ( like a fast food place) then you sit and wait for it , there's no view of the water , it can be loud and crowded. When we went there , there were people standing and waiting and it wasn't clear who had... More
