This is the best watering hole in the area! Also great food for the price. Large servings & great atmosphere. Very well run. I like the bar area for dining - upstairs is a bit boxy & boring!

I've been enjoying The Boynton for pretty much my entire life. But now it's just way to packed to even thinking about going anymore. Too bad, but they are a victim of their own successes.

Great place to go with fam and friends, almost too many choices. Good food, lots of beers on tap, almost to many.

Great Great Food! and excellent bar selection. Service is top notch as long as you can get a table. Always booked and a significant waiting line but that should speak loud. Their bar list is huge of different beer choices (I think 40 on tap)...More
