My husband and I went here with our parents. They have off street parking in the back and friendly hostess and waitresses. We ordered wings and nachos to start and the nachos were HUGE! Great toppings. Perfect to split with a large group of friends. We all tried something different; pasta, steaks and seafood. All entrees were very tasty but... More

Thursday afternoon met friends for drinks and appetizers. Service was excellent and waitress was very pleasant. It is always a very busy place but worth the wait if you have too.

Excellent food, great folks, very good service. Skip the steamah's...kitchen staff needs to get back to basics on proper cleaning and purging of the clams before steaming. Something more creative on the steaming would be nice....another local establishment steams in Sam Adams beer and minced "gahlic". Nice touch. Didn't appreciate several times biting into grit and all the mud in... More

Five of us had the soup and meatball parmesan sandwich. Both were very good and a great bargain at just under $8. Other entres were also very good. Four people ordered the quesadillas and did not like their selection. We had one server for 14 people and she was excellent. Lunch menu had excellent pricing, dinner seemed a little higher... More

Four of us ate at Boynton 's about 4pm today. We all chose selections from their sandwich menu. All four were wonderful . Open faced Prime Rib, pastrami, Reuben and a steak sandwich. I had the 10 oz open face prime rib with onion straws. The prime rib was delicious and so tender . The prices were very reasonable. Good... More

This is one of my favorite places. It's important to make a reservation if you want to be able to sit on a busy night!

Great local spot with a wide and varied "on tap" beer selection. Very diverse menu with all of the food reasonably priced and good quality. My steak sandwich was on fresh baked bread and the pizza looked delicious. We will be back.

Where to begin? The food is by far & away the best in Worcester. I've tried a large portion of the menu and have never been disappointed with any of it. The Boynton has THE BEST nachos I've ever had, but don't try to eat it alone! It's almost overkill, but you get a great value and a snack for... More

The food is good, the atmosphere is good if you don't mind it loud. It's a college area so there are a lot of students but also a good mix of age. I usually sit it the bar area .
