Had the sashimi tuna and my wife had the best fried clams ever. Oysters as an appetizers were terrific at $1.75 each versus the restaurant across the street charges $2.50 for the same oyster.

I've been coming here for years with my family. The food is consistently good and a wide variety of choices for different tastes. The fresh haddock is one of my favorites and the lobster rangoon appetizer is also very good. Another favorite starter is the hummus plate. If you prefer a pizza, sandwich, burger, steak, etc, you're in luck. Also... More

We were looking for a gluten free menu and Boynton had one. The food was ok, but the restaurant was extremely loud and the bathroom was filthy. The waitress was inattentive and had to be tracked down to get anything, including the bill. If you are desperate for a gluten free menu, it was average. Not a place I will... More

Late dinner on a busy Friday night started in bar with excellent drinks and appetizer. Ticket easily transferred when table ready. Pizza was excellent as was the seafood platter.

I have only been to the Boynton a few times, but everytime I go it's packed. Even on Mondays!! Make sure to get the boynton bucket. It's a mixture of several different alcohols mixed in a beach pail complete with a shovel. It's not very potent but it is tasty. For food definitely try the pizza its a favorite.

We were a group of 11, I called ahead and was told they didn't take reservations but they said they'd do their best. We had to wait about 5 mixtures once we arrived! We had excellent service. I had some great cocktails and the beer drinkers were impressed with the selection. Our group had vegetarians, meat eaters, picky eaters and... More

Heard from others that the Boynton had good GF pizza. I have to come to the belief that there is no such thing, but I would say that this pizza was the best that I have had to date.

Menu is rather large with boynton specialities. I had the prime rib which was good, but not the best I've ever had. It came with vegetable and potato choice. French fries and the corn on the cob were good. Many people around us ordered their pizza so I'd probably suggest that too. The ultimate nachos was the largest I've ever... More

Boynton Family Restaurant was an unexpected surprise on a recent stay in Worcester. It's a large brick wall, lively pub style restaurant. Large menus often let you down, but the flavor profiles and quality of the apps and entrees were all excellent. Would go back in a heartbeat. Warning, large delicious portions. Great service and fresh good meals. Wish they... More
