Two couples had four perfectly prepared meals. Yes, the parking is limited, but if you get past that issue, you will enjoy a very nice meal. I highly recommend making a visit.

This was my first trip to Boca Bay. I joined co-workers for a birthday celebration and had a great time! We started in the bar where we had drinks and steamed clams, mussels, and oysters. Until 7pm, $6. a dozen! I'd never had oysters or mussels and these were a great 1st experience. All 3 were fabulous! We were then... More

We have never been disappointed with Boca Bay and New Years' Eve 2013 was one of the best. Great service, good food and a very festive atmosphere.

Parking can be a little tight but the food was excellent. We all decided to have the fresh steamed old bay shrimp which was great. The tomato bisque and crab bisque were very tasty. Prices seemed very reasonable. Service was very good and the atmosphere pleasant. We were only visiting in the area but if we return I would definitely... More

Recommended to Boca Bay by a few locals and gave it try. Glad I did! Tried a couple of appetizers and had the sushi as a main dish. Service was very polished and up-to-par, and I also liked the environment and interior design. Very nice. Prices were a bit high, but still reasonable for the amount of food and the... More

Many like Boca Bay's brunch, which is very good .... & expensive. I think 'Boca' has good food but the restaurant is not located in a 'prime spot', with a view of the water, like so many other alternatives. Their parking is terrible; way too limited. The food is good but there are many good alternatives in and around Wilmington... More

We had looked forward to Sunday brunch here during our brief honeymoon stay. My memory of this from some years ago sold me on going back. Other than a nice omelet station, the rest of the brunch was very ordinary, and much of it no different from what you get at any medium-priced hotel offering a free breakfast buffet. That... More

Totally surprised! Haven't been there in years! Catherine is a fantastic server. Knows her restaurant and the food! Sushi was such a complete surprise! Delicious sushi! Cerviche also terrific! We had paella, cioppino and shrimp and scallop fettuccine. All great! I never post. But felt I needed to!

The environment is good, and this is a classic American restaurant. We had our brunch there, so the only highlight would be the smoked salmon, and I ate a lot.
