Finally went in

After living in the Worcester area for many years I finally went in and had dinner. I have now been 2 times in the past 2 weeks. I go in late on Friday night and the place is still packed. There lots of college kids due to the large amount of colleges in Worcester. The staff is good but could... read more

HOW DO THEY MANAGE TO GET IT RIGHT ALL THE TIME! Tremendous selection of food choices and reasonably priced too! Also always comes out hot which is amazing since they usually have a waiting line to get in. Parking can be challenging at any time of day. Their Boynton pizza is incredible. Their haddock Anna is incredible. You cannot go... More

I love the B. I've loved the B when it was a dark college bar 20+ years ago and I love it now that it is a modern clean family and college friendly restaurant and bar.

went to the Boynton especially for their nachos which where a large portion, they where good but not great. Had a burger which I liked as you can add many toppings for no additional price. Service was fine as we arrived early at 5:00 . It has parking in the back of the restaurant which is a plus. As parking... More

The Boynton is a landmark on the busy Highland Street location. It started as a hole in the wall bar to a bistro. The amazing thing is that they have a large menu but the quality is good.It is always crowded which speaks for its popularity. It's a good place to socialize. They never rush you out.

No reservations taken , so we got there early, 5:15pm, was told 45 mins. The tiny waiting area was jammed so no place to wait except in aisle or on stairs leading to upper area. Bar so crowded the 4 of us couldn't stand there either, although the bartender was great. We were asked 3 times to move by a... More

We were in town visiting Becker College and had no idea where to go for dinner. This place looked like a good choice, and it was. Good pub food and good, fast and friendly service. We had French Onion Soup & Steaks — nothing fancy. Looked like it's also a pizza place of sorts. Didn't try any though. What we... More

After touring WPI we asked were we can have lunch within walking distance and our tour guide (college freshman) recommended Boynton's. Nice family restaurant, looked like it had 2 floors with the bar on the first. We ordered a pizza & burgers and everything was really good. I know where I will eat if my son gets accepted!
