We ate at this restaurant as a very large sports group. I thought they had an extensive menu. My food was good. I had the salmon. I think the staff did a fair job keeping up with the 20+ of us, but some things got lost in the hustle. We were also pretty crowded into our area. I think everyone... More

We went early so only had a 1/2 hour wait. the beer was cold and the service was excellent. The food was plentiful and my football player son actually took home a box!!!! The atmosphere was family/collegiate, given the location. We had a great time and will be returning here soon!

I've eaten here many times and the food is decent - good. I wouldn't say very good. Atmosphere is fun (little loud). The major reason why I don't go more often (as the wife likes it) is because of the long wait times. good problem to have for them, not good for me.

I attended the college graduation of my granddaughter. We invited her three roommates...my son & myself. The beer selection was the reason this restaurant was picked. Everyone ordered a different selection. Everybody was happy. A busy place....good sign

The Boynton is a good place to get some good food and cold drinks at a reasonable price. They have a wide variety to choose from on the menu whether it be for lunch or dinner. Friendly staff who are there to make your visit a pleasant one. Parking can be tough to find on busy days, but worth it.

We met some friends in Worcester since it is half way between where each of us lives. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was pretty busy...a good sign. Unfortunately we were disappointed in our meals. The guys order burgers and asked the waited what medium rare meant and were assured that they would be pink to maybe... More

It is true from other reviews that I read that the Boynton can be very busy. And often there is a wait. But they always have a great beer selection. With different blackboard selections that are switched out. The restaurant is across the street from a very popular, fancier, seafood restaurant. I would HIGHLY recommend saving your cash because the... More

Stopped in here with a friend for a quick lunch, and I was really impressed with the draft beer selection and pub-style food. My husband (a WPI alum) had recommended this to me, as it was one of his college haunts. 50+ beers on draft (including 3 casks), a menu diverse enough to please everyone, and a nice casual ambiance...

What college student doesn't want the "Boynton Classic" on a Saturday afternoon? I was pleasantly surprised though when the menu also included homemade hummus and even more surprised when it tasted great. Asked for a side of baby carrots and celery sticks to go with it. SIde note: Years ago overheard a woman order them for her children, and I... More
