Has a great atmosphere on the water ,the food is fair ,But for fresh seafood if you don't have crab Don't make crab bisque, the Imitation Crab you put in it is Disgusting... I would just take it off the menu if you can't use Real Crab....

Gross food, gross tables, gross floor. Although the flies seemed to enjoy it, so there's that... SERIOUSLY, why does this place have to be this way? It's sitting on such a sweet spot, and it could REALLY be a cool place. I've tried a few times over the last few years. I just don't get it.

Great location off the beaten path. A local hangout to escape the tourist zone restaurants. Setting in a nice quaint marina surrounded by mangroves and wildlife. Excellent menu selections and priced fairly for the quality of the food served.

Saw many good reviews and decided to try it for ourselves. A bit too rustic for us. We decided on appetizers only after being deceived with "rum runners". These drinks were made with wine???? Would have been great to have been told ahead of time. If we had wanted wine we would have ordered that at a much cheaper price.... More

This is a real classic fishing dock restaurant with great food and service. If you are in the area do not miss Boondocks.

Great little place on the water. The food was good and lots of choices. Watching the catfish in the river go after bread and fries is a nice show for the young-uns.

When we checked in with hostess we were told there was a 30 min wait and we were 4th in Line. After over an hour wait we asked to speak with a manager and the bartender said that we were being called to be seated. After sitting at our table for over 15 min without a notice from 1 single... More

Dear Nancy W.- We are so sorry that your visit to Boondocks was so disappointing. And you are right, that type of service you described is inexcusable. I will look into how that could have happened and do all we can to correct the situation in the future. But be assured that nobody is moved further down the list because... More
