Exceeded expectations! Accomodated our family of 12 with a reservation and the patio worked very well for us (while it was next to the road, noise was low thanks for decorative wall). We felt price was reasonable compared to other places that tourists frequent, the food was very good value and service was great. Less than 5 minutes from Wrightsville... More

The Wilmington area has some great restaurants and we usually go to Indochine for sushi, but we stopped here and I ordered the Spicy Tuna and Kamehameha Rolls. The Kamehameha roll was a spicy tuna with mango and a sweet and sour sauce. Both were very good and worth the trip.

Wish I could give it 3 1/2 stars. The food is good, pricey and well prepared. But there is little elegance. Waiters fly everywhere with little personal interaction. The place is in constant motion and needs a Valium. Waiters should stop for a moment to say Hey! The bar is even more frantic. I've been here a dozen times and... More

Boca Bay has been a beach standard in Wilmington for many years. The food and atmosphere keep it a popular choice. It is dependent on seasonal help, however, so the service can be spotty. It has a lively bar, but the dining area (aside from outdoor) is relatively quiet, which is nice if you are looking to actually talk to... More

We were given water with meled ice cubes and the girl looked shocked when I asked for cup of... More

Driven by Boca Bay plenty of times, but never stopped. Our mistake. Very good place for a nice dinner. Plenty of good choices on the menu and a nice wine list. Entrees $17-23. Great specials and an organic greens salad that was as fresh as you'll find. Very good service, too. Grab a table outside. Even though right on Eastwood... More

Visited today for Brunch, we really enjoyed it. Everything we had was delicious and for 15 each you can't beat the price. The parking situation needs some improvement but the service and food were wonderful! (Brunch has very little seafood, which if fine for me b/c I don't like seafood but if you're looking for it you may want to... More

Very good food. Greatly enjoyed the bar food, which is most reasonably priced, and makes an enjoyable evening. Tuesdays the sushi is half-price, reason enough to go there.

Went for brunch because I heard how fabulous it is. Not worth the money in my opinion and was so crowded making it difficult to handle the buffet lines.
