“Graduation Dinner”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Parking can be a little tight but the food was excellent. We all decided to have the fresh steamed old bay shrimp which was great. The tomato bisque and crab bisque were very tasty.

Prices seemed very reasonable.

Service was very good and the atmosphere pleasant.

We were only visiting in the area but if we return I would definitely go back here to try their other dishes.

“Worth a Visit while visiting Wilmington, NC”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Recommended to Boca Bay by a few locals and gave it try. Glad I did! Tried a couple of appetizers and had the sushi as a main dish. Service was very polished and up-to-par, and I also liked the environment and interior design. Very nice.

Prices were a bit high, but still reasonable for the amount of food and the fresh quality. Parking lot was kind of small and the building was a bit hard to find in the evening, but other than that, had a very nice visit.

“A decent restaurant with limited parking.”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Many like Boca Bay's brunch, which is very good .... & expensive. I think 'Boca' has good food but the restaurant is not located in a 'prime spot', with a view of the water, like so many other alternatives.

Their parking is terrible; way too limited. The food is good but there are many good alternatives in and around Wilmington (NC).

“Overpriced”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had looked forward to Sunday brunch here during our brief honeymoon stay. My memory of this from some years ago sold me on going back. Other than a nice omelet station, the rest of the brunch was very ordinary, and much of it no different from what you get at any medium-priced hotel offering a free breakfast buffet. That might have been okay but at a price of $15.95 per person and an additional $2.50 for coffee, $40.00 for the two of us was a bit much. For the money spent, you can do much better.
