14 of us had a wonderful time on a Friday night, celebrating a co-worker's birthday. The food was very tasty except the pasta bed my chicken parmesan was served on was borderline warm. The actual chicken parmesan and sauce made up for this and considering there were 14 of us, not to mention all the other tables were full, I just overlooked it and enjoyed. Although I didn't try any, many of our party raved about their fresh seafood entrees and the desserts were a huge hit- both in taste and portions. Another big plus is that everything was served in a timely manner. The prices were mid-range, about what you'd pay at any quality restaurant. The actual indoor seating is a little small but not u comfortably so. They also offer outdoor seating with umbrella covered tables and heaters in a lively garden style setting. The server, Michelle, was excellent in every way: attentive, efficient, and friendly. We will be back to enjoy a date night soon. I don't know about weekdays but I would recommend a reservation for a weekend dinner. As for parking, ample, free street parking is available however, this is less so during the tourist-summer months in which case you may have to stroll along the quaint, cozy shop filled streets for a few blocks. The Boro Restaurant is a quality dinner choice

On the main street downtown Swansboro. Not much parking, so get ready to park on a narrow street and walk. But the walk downtown Swansboro is a treat within itself.
Have some lunch at Boro before or while browsing downtown.
Cold beer on tap and good wine pours.
Good salads. Great clam chowder. Excellent sandwiches.

We took friends from Pennsylvania to let them experience a real Low Country Boil. They have great choices and it was Awesome!! You sit outside, in the back, on the water enjoying the view and the breeze.

Had lunch with a friend and she suggested Boro as she had been here before and enjoyed it. Very good choice. Nice atmosphere, cute decor, delicious food, friendly and prompt service. We both had the claim chowder and the "small" plate of their version of a tostada and it was fabulous and a huge portion. Had we known, we would have split one but instead we had a ton of leftovers to bring home.
