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

I came here late in the evening after a work event. I was greeted but a very nice server and he took good care of me. I had the fried shrimp with hush puppies and it was delicious. A nice martini as well to top off the meal.

Interesting menu with sushi as well as the usual appetizers and entrees. Lettuce wedge is good as is the bisque. Favorite of the sushi is the lobster roll. Entrees are all good. Service is attentive except when we were finished and wanted to order a dessert to go, the waiter disappeared.

Met a business associate (Friend) and his wife for a late dinner and we were all impressed! The restaurant was elegant, yet seemed small and local, a place that you can become very comfortable visiting. My friends were stuck in traffic and not sure if they would make it, so I started alone at at the bar. The server was... More

We ate here with friends while visiting Wilmington. Denis was our server, and he impressed us with his friendly personality and his attention to our every need. Three of us had the special that night, Swordfish in butter, served with mashed potatoes and green beans, all cooked to perfection. The other member of our party had fried oysters, which she... More

Food always consistently good. We make it a point to come here while in Wilmington. The service is excellent and my entire family enjoys this place even my folks who are locals to the area. Would recommend to anyone.

Topped with melted Gruyere cheese, Bacon and cream spinach you will take 8 down before you know it. Be sure to save room because... More
