Typically this us a good place to eat, but watch out, they often serve extremely nasty instant mashed potatos. Also, their "glasses" are pretty sketchy. Their pizza has too much topping but not enough cheese or sauce. Honestly, this place for as busy as it is can be pretty hit and miss. When you are paying $85 for a dinner... More

We celebrated a birthday here, but we were disappointed. The theme seems to be that quantity equals quality!! We don't agree and think the quality suffers seriously

This restaurant is a gem. It is loud and comfy and the food is great. If you can't find something you like on their huge menu, you just don't like to eat! The atmosphere is something I can find only in the Northeast- it is very Cheers like. There always seems to be a wait, but once you have been... More

Wish we could go here more often but we aren't local. But locals certainly know about this place. It has always been busy anytime we have visited....even a random Monday night. The service is fine and the food is great ..their own spin on bar food as well as traditional entrees. Love the fried ravioli app. Tried the personal pizza... More

I have been to the Boynton many times. Every time I have gone the is a waiting line, but it's worth the wait. The waitress are always pleasant and patient until you can decide what you want to eat. Every time i go I order a different plate of food to try new things and every time the food came... More

Ate here last night with some friends for the first time. The food and apps were great (esp loved the potato wedges and onion rings), it was reasonably priced, and they have a parking lot in the back, but the reason I know we will go back again was the staff! Our server was Kelly and she was awesome! She... More

One of those places that is constantly good with exceptional service. Calamari is one of my favorites and have never been disappointed with a menu choice. It is consistently busy but they have a large parking lot in the rear of the bldg. Bar seating is usually available to dine also.

I eat at the B at least twice a month, sometimes every weekend. Some of the basics are great (like the Chicken Bomber), and I always like to try the specials. Service has always been great, although my favorite spot is at the bar with Sara or Erin.

One of the waitress charged me 163 dollars when it had to be 15. I call The Boynton, telling them that they charged the wrong amount. The only solution they offered is to give a refund check 6 days later, when by that time I will already be out of the city. Incredible that these things happen.

The Boynton has come a long way in terms of it's interior since I was in college a decade and 1/2 ago but the food and drinks have always been very good. The Boynton has a noisy, vibrant atmosphere and a beautiful bar. Their signature pizza is outstanding. It can be very hard to get into during the evenings or... More
