Visited last Subday for the first time with my girlfriend. Our meal was really good. Great value for what you get for $16.95. We will go back for sure.

My wife and I stopped here on our long weekend vacation to Wilmington because they serve oysters. They were delicious. My wife ordered the salmon and she loved every bite. After the delicious east coast oysters, I ordered the fish and chips which was very good.We sat out on the patio for dinner, but the interior is very nice. It... More

(Found hair embeded in my food and to rectify it they told me it must have been mine, um no my hair is blond this is dark. They did take it off my bill though).... More

We went here on a recommendation from our hotel. We sat on the porch which was a little cold as it was getting dark. The waiter was very fast and nice. We ordered fish and chips and shrimp over linguini. The bread was yummy as was the food. Portions were large. We spent nearly $100 for a family of four,... More

This has been our "go-to" Easter Brunch destination for the past several years ...after trying others in town and being disappointed. Boca never disappoints! Always plenty of options on the brunch buffet...continually being replenished...in addition to made to order omelets. Everything is fresh and tasty! Great service as well!

Some good friends recommended that we give Boca Bay a try for a nice dinner and night out! What a great recommendation that turned out to be! The Crab Bisque is probably among the best that I have ever tasted. I ordered the Shrimp and Scollops entree (fettuccine, peas, pancetta and mushrooms in a light white wine cream sauce). It... More
