Was recommended to try this place by some coworkers and it didn't disappoint. Nice atmosphere, the food was delicious and not too pricey. I had the grilled flounder with Asian sauce. The bread was good but no sweet tea. disappointed at that but otherwise this was a great meal.

We usually sit at the bar and order drinks and appetizers or dinner. We always enjoy the food, the atmosphere and they do a great martin! We've never had brunch here which we hear is fantastic.

First visit after hearing great things about this long established restaurant and bar. Didn't disappoint. Great crab cakes, even had some lump meat. Very good, attentive service and comfortable atmosphere. A definate return visit in our future plans.

My boyfriend and I arrived in town on Monday and tried all the "hotspots", and were very disappointed. All college kids who did not seem to care and mediocre food at best. We then tried Boca Bay on Tuesday night and got the spicy Tuna roll to start,( half price on Tuesday's!), Caesar salad, the Filet with au gratin potatoes. We finished with the Banana's Foster with banana bread and ice cream for dessert. Outstanding!! So good we returned tonight, our last night here, and we're wowed again! Asian pan seared scallops and half price bottles of wine on Wednesday's! We sat at the bar both times, and the service was very good. Had the same male bartender both nights, and remembered our drink to a tee! ( sorry, we did not catch his name). Too bad we live in Boston, we would be here once a week!!
