“Food good but too pricey for a paper plate restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

No dishwasher service available so you get your food served on Styrofoam and paper plates with plastic utensils. Little better than a fast food joint.

“Beachy feel and good crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I visited Bostwick's twice and both times liked the atomosphere, crowd and food. It does get crowded but if you want the beachy, fish, vibe this is a good place. My only major complaint is that they use all disposable products. Forks, spoons, cups, plates, etc.... all get thrown out. I sat at the kitchen bar my last visit and got to watch this first hand. It would be nice for such a known establishment that gets lots of business to take more pride in the environment.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Have been here a number of times this summer and it's always good. Lobster fritters, fish tacos, fish and chips, lobster all great. Service always friendly and very efficient. The plastic forks and paper napkins don't do the food justice.
