“Not Worth Returning...except for the view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Ate with some friends and the view of the ocean from the 2nd floor of this restaurant was beautiful...and, although there was a pretty loud band playing downstairs, you couldn't hear it at all while eatting upstairs!

I thought the food was pretty average and over-priced for the quality. Most of the table had grouper and there were no raves. My lobster bisque was good but narry a piece of lobster.
Also had a lobster and crab cake (shaped like a tennis ball) that lacked either flavor.

Server seemed put out somehow that he had to serve us, although we made no extraordinary requests. Had to ask for refills on the water, and, in fact, for water at all.

“The surprise UPSTAIRS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

"Boston's" on the beach in Delray has been a well known (and enjoyed) burger 'n beer joint for many years. Now, the upstairs space has been cleaned up and turned into an upscale dining facility...with lovely views of the ocean. Yes, there IS an elevator. At the bar there is a small aquarium with a baby skate whisking back and forth, fun to watch,and good drinks.
Several visits in the past couple of months (no "Birds" around) have proven to us that they really know how to prepare fresh seafood. Beautiful plate presentations, generous serving (yes, they are a little pricey) have us returning for more. Snapper with a lobster succotash was just plain wonderful, potato wrapped grouper was VERY filling (and delicious) and The Mrs. raves about the seared Ahi tuna. Cheerful, friendly service staff and the view completes any visit.

“Loud and Uncomfortable!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Restaurant is located next to a sandy bar with loud music. We got seated outside on the ocean view terrace. The view is beautiful; however, they have fans that spray water above dinner tables so you may want to have an umbrella. You will be wet and your hair will be freezy:) The loud BAR music next door is deafening and you have no choice but to shout out your every word if you choose to have a conversation with anyone at your dinner table. We expected an upscale, fine dining after reading about this restaurant. We were disappointed.
Food was just OK. If you dine inside, you may have a better experience. To say the least, you will be sitting in an air conditioned room and can avoid the spraying fans and the loud BAR music coming from next door! We won’t be back.
