Great food and excelllent service

On a recent trip to Wrightsville Beach, NC we happened upon Boca Bay one afternoon and decided to try it one evening. We went around 6PM on a Wednesday night hoping to miss the crowd but it was already pretty crowded. We did get a table right away and our server was there immediately. I told myself... read more

Maybe the best meal we had during our big family reunion in Wrightsville Beach. We were looking for raw oysters, and honestly, we would have been happy with a hole-in-the-wall shack... plus, we were thinking of lunch. Boca Bay offered oysters on the menu but was not open for lunch on a Thursday, so we opted for dinner as soon... More

It's a nice restaurant, clean and in a good location. Parking lot is fairly small, they also had valet parking. The wait staff was very nice, knowledgable and courteous, if your water glass started to get low, they were right there. The food was very good, the Oysters Rockefeller were perfect and our entrees were good too. The "catch of... More

i have eaten here 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The food is amazing, the service is impeccable and the desserts and wine are to die for. The prices are perfect for what you get and you will have leftovers, especially if you order the ribeye, which is huge. I will be back again this week.

I was expecting a little more from the brunch here at Boca Bay. We had heard from some relatives who live in the area that it was good so we decided to check it out. Our server was quite lacking and appeared rather hungover. I'm not sure if he was just stuck in outerspace that morning or if something else... More

We go to brunch at Boca Bay regularly, and will continue to go when the price is $16.95 per person. At the $26.95 per person ($10 increase) because it was a holiday we will not return during holidays. We were not informed of the additional cost just because it was a "holiday". No alternative to the Sunday brunch is available,... More

We adored this restaurant! We were a little surprised by how classy it was, but we were treated wonderfully despite our beach weary attire... We ordered 5 different sushi rolls and loved each one- SO FRESH & done well... Our eldest had the fried Flounder and ate every bite. Dessert was delicious, as well! Our favorite was the chocolate sushi... More

We visit several times a year with friends and relatives and have never been disappointed. The quality and food presentation is pleasing and tasty. A knowledgeable waitstaff are always helpful and fun. A must stop if visiting Wrightsville Beach or for locals. While not inexpensive the visit and food expierence is worth it.

This was our first visit to Boca Bay. There was quite a crowd due to Father's Day. The food was very good. The service was very good as well. However, the restaurant was inadequately cooled with such a crowd. The variety of offerings could be improved upon. There were no hot vegetables nor green salad. I missed those items. I... More

Big place, but nice ambience. It is a typical high end steak and seafood place and the food and service did not disappoint. Easy to miss if you don't slow down and there is a small parking lot (but they have valet parking).
