I don't think I've ever been to the Boynton when it wasn't busy, the wait usually isn't as long as they say it will be though. Went today with family and everything was great. They always have amazing specials and their menu definately has something for everyone. The service is very good too. This is one of the old favorites... More

We are new regulars to the B. I love their salads and there is brie in a puff pastry on the appetizer list that we often get for dessert. I am a sucker for the sirloin steak. Consistently good, and the mashed potatoes are yummy.

Great draft beer selection. Sit at the bar and have a couple of beers and a burger. You will certainly not be disappointed. Good portions, staff is quick to give you another beer and is very attentive. Parking lot in back.

Boynton is without a doubt in the top 10 in Worcester, it is one of 15 or so restaurants within walking distance to WPI. Lucky's cafe is very close to the medical school side of the campus and is truly a gem. Peter, the owner, promotes local Jazz musicians and the food is an outstanding value. The atmosphere is eclectic... More

You can get a good sized entree for under $20 and there are tons of beers or cocktails to pick from to accompany your dinner. If you are going to have a very special date or for a special occasion, then it's probably not the best place for you. Often overcrowded during sporting events and weekends. A good lunch place,...

The Boynton, located off Highland Street in Worcester, abuts Elm Park Community School ("EPCS") -- a gritty, inner-city elementary school that services many of Worcester's most under-privileged young boys & girls. Over the years, EPCS has been a great friend & neighbor to The Boynton's employees & customers. In fact, due to the lack of available neighborhood parking spaces, restaurant... More

The best thing about the Boynton is the huge variety of alcohol. It's a restaurant, not just a bar, but tends to be wicked loud inside. This is due partly to the college crowd that lives in the area. The food is always decent but boring - nothing special on the menu. I have, however, NEVER been served undercooked or... More
