This is a great place to come enjoy fresh seafood. They run a $5 special for bar dining from 5-7 that includes the biggest plate of calamari you just can't finish!! The service is always good and they have many options for anyone and their hunger level. Be sure to try the Oysters Rockefeller. Some of the tastiest I've ever eaten!

Just across the bridge from Wrightsville, Boca Bay is one of several wonderful restaurants owned by the same person. Boca Bay offers a wide choice (our favorites are the sushi, shrimp & grits, cioppino, and paella). The service is excellent (all of his staff are well-trained!) and the food is delicious.

My family of three went to Boca Bay for dinner this evening. It was a lovely experience. We ate outside and the fountain outside provided a nice divider between the road and the restaurant. I got a roll of sushi and a salad. Both were great! Also, for dessert you have to try their coconut sushi!! It was creative and delicious.

The Boca Tower is yysters, clams, ceviche, tuna, and jumbo shrimp stacked 3 tiers high for the table - that's where we started and it was amazing and we kept going with calamari, clams casino, oysters rockerfeller - all perfectly done and beautifully presented. First time at this restaurant recommended by a local citizen and it did not disappoint. Party of five seated on the outside patio, excellent bar and wine menu, lovely atmosphere all served in a reasonable, relaxing pace. Highly recommend.

Though on a busy road, the outside seating here is quite nice. A wall just high enough to block the view of traffic surrounds a pool with small lighted fountains and provides a view of the sky, palm trees, and the restaurant’s floral décor. Inside seating appeared elegant and comfortable. Spring roll appetizer, crab bisque soup, Lobster Risotto, and other seafood entrees were prepared very nicely. I was disappointed as, upon receiving an entrée, I requested melted butter for lobster tails. I did not see the waiter again and it did not arrive until I was finished with the diner. Parking seems to be limited to very convenient valet.
