Had the Sunday brunch. Omelet station did not have any seafood? At a seafood restaurant ? The other items were okay. There was fried cod which was okay, chicken piccata was dry, strata was tasty. Service was attentive but for the price, I would recommend another restaurant and just order from the menu and get quality instead of quantity.

My wife and I visited this restaurant this week. We arrived at 6PM no reservations, but elected to sit at the bar. We placed our drink orders, she come back and we placed our food order. I would say by 6:15 PM she had our food order. We order the oyster rockfellers which actually were very good. We enjoyed them... More

I had planned a Valentine's Day trip to the coast and sent my wife several restaurant choices for a Valentine's Day dinner. Based on their website and menu, we elected to make reservations at Boca Bay. I had previously been there for brunch, which really is over priced. Upon being seated on Valentine's day evening, we immediately noticed that the... More

Busy restaurant. Very loud. But seafood choices are great. From shrimp and scallops to calamari (especially good) to the mahi mahi special...all good.

We had a very enjoyable dinner here on a Wednesday night. They had several dinner specials that included a choice of salad, entree and a dessert. I chose the fresh flounder which was delicious. My husband had the paella which was not on the special dining menu; however, it was a fresh and nice preparation that included shrimp, scallops, clams... More

We met family for a holiday brunch. We had reservations. They had a large array of food but often found empty dishes and long lines. The food was delicious with a selection to please everyone. We were seated outside which was not a good choice with the windy ocean winds blowing in. (It would be great during hot weather!) Crowded... More

We dined at Boca Bay for their Sunday brunch Buffet twice. The first was on a holiday weekend and more recently on a normal Sunday in the summer. Both were disappointing due to being crowded and overbooked. There is a large array of breakfast food and desserts. Nothing special and served throughout the crowded restaurant. Service was fair but not... More

This place was excellent!!! We had 5 adults and 1 baby and were able to be sat within 15 minutes. You can tell this place is crowded but extremely efficient. We were so happy with our meal we met the Manager there, Nancy Brisson and explained to her how happy we were with the service. Coming from the restaurant industry... More
