“Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The fried seafood platter was amazing.The fish,shrimp, and oysters were perfectly cooked.Not greasy or over breaded.The hush puppies were soft and flavorful.My spouse ordered a small plate of grilled salmon.It was an average size serving for most restaurants.The salmon along with the sides were quite good.Our waitress was helpful and was fun to talk with.Overall a very nice dinner!

“Good brunch, but kind of expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I like Boca Bay's food, particularly their brunch. They are, however, a little on the expensive side. What you're really paying for is the atmospshere. If you don't mind a bar setting, hit up Sweet and Savory's pub across the street(formerly Kefi) for brunch. If you're cool with breakfast, hit up Causeway Cafe(on Wrightsville Beach), or Jimbo's(Oleander and College).

Boca Bay's Sunday Brunch is amazing! If you haven't tried it, it's definitely worth fighting the crowd.

“a nice evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Location, close to Wrightsville Beach, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of traffic and shoppers. Wait staff very attentive and accomidating to needs. valet parking available but not
needed. This trip my wife ordered lomaine and lobster. It was cooked perfectily, passing the
old southern tradition of "reallygood food" in that leftovers were just as tasty afterwards.
