Mains were shrimp & grits, excellent but more grits than could be eaten. Stuffed flounder large enough so half was taken home, salmon excellent cooked to request with Extra sauce, paella... More

Went to Boca Bay after a two year hiatus and was really impressed. I started with the spring rolls which were good, 6 mini rolls filled with a shrimp filling , crispy with two dipping sauces. My wife had the chopped salad (ask for it to be extra chopped) which she thought was excellent, a fresh combination of greens/vegetables and... More

After searching the seafood restaurants near Wrightsville Beach, we settled on Boca Bay. Great pick. The restaurant is well appointed without being stuffy. Our waitress was great and everything we had from drinks through dessert was perfect. My husband especially enjoyed the fresh, house-made strawberry sorbet. Would eat here again and again.

We had excellent service and an excellent meal. Bread was warm, salads were fresh, meals were innovative, well seasoned and well proportioned. I had the gumbo, loved it. One friend had the lobster risotto - it was perfect, so that's the one I recommend.

A very inviting and pleasant restaurant. Not Michelin level cuisine, but really quite good. Service was excellent, and the meal portions and drink sizes were very generous. Both my spouse and I selected the prix fixe menu, and, while the Caesar salad was a bit "limp," the main courses were most satisfying and the dessert just fine. We both actually... More

This was my first time trying the oysters Rockefeller as I am only an occasional seafood eater. They were amazing! I had a chopped salad with capers, feta and a lemon dressing- delicious. I also ordered a side of the goat cheese potatoes, again delicious. The food is high quality and very good. We shared a pitcher of fresh homemade... More

I have been here before, but only for brunch, which is always amazing. I don't know why I never thought to come for dinner. I saw it listed as a participating restaurant for restaurant week, and was so pleased with the dinner, our service, and the ambiance. I look forward to returning.

Boca Bay is an upscale eatery with a fabulous Sunday Brunch. My wife and I have been many times and always been satisfied both with the food and the top notch service. Blintzes, waffles and pecan roles top off the hot foods with plenty of very good bacon and sausage.

Been here dozens of times. We like all the restaurants in this chain. And we like their Tuesday 1/2 price sushi night. Last night the food was very good. But it started off wrong. We ordered vodka martinis up. And we asked for Belvedere. The glasses were 3/4's full, even our partners were amazed. If a waitress is concerned about... More
