If you like good food, the Boynton has it. If you like your food in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, then you will not like the Boynton. Because the food is so good, it is always busy. That means it is very loud. If that doesn't bother you, then go for it.

I've lived in Worcester for almost 15 years, and the Boynton is one of our favorites. It's located on the main drag off exit 17 (Highland St.) from I-290 and on the edge of the Worcester Poly campus. Great service is provided by eager coeds working their way through school. Parking is somewhat limited, and you'll want to beat the... More

I've been to the Boynton quite a bit for both personal and professional occasions. I enjoy it for both because it's very consistent and everything I've ever ordered there has been delicious. They have this dish with pasta, grated cheese and lobster that should be on everyone's bucket list. The downsides: The bar area gets VERY crowded. It goes from... More

This place is terrible, bland food, overly loud and the server ripped off our groups check. The server was paid by both credit card and cash, we left her a good tip (we're all wait staff ourselves, so we know how to tip) I was very clear what the the server should include on my credit card bill, I signed...

The restaurant has many menu options to choose from. I was a very busy late afternoon and yet service was very good. I enjoyed a daily special of Boneless Pork Chops topped with an apple remoulade with mashed sweet potato and broccoli rabe. There were a total of 8 in our party and everyone was very happy.

Went here for dinner after a concert at WPI. There were eight of us and we were able to make a reservation. It's a good thing we did, because the place was packed. Had to wait about twenty minutes for our table. Ended up in a booth with a table at the end which usually ticks me off, but there... More

We went on a Saturday at 4:30 thinking it wouldn't be crowded but we were wrong-it was packed! Despite this our party of five only waited 10 minutes for a table. Their beer list is extensive and included a pear and apple hard cider that was one of the best ciders I have ever tasted! Appetizers were unique and delicious.... More

Able to obtain seating despite dinner rush hour. Wide variety of menu choices with reasonable prices. Didn't like the noise from the area college crowd who were at the restaurant.

Decided to give this place a try since I was in the Worcester area. First off it was a Monday night around 6:30 pm. When I arrived it is an easy place to drive by. It is on the main drag and it doesn't look like much from the outside. When I tried to park in their parking lot it... More
