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

Was hungry for a light dinner. This was my second visit to this restaurant. First time I was there with a group and we got full meals. This trip was only appetizers and drinks. Menu offers many tasty choices, there is something for everyone. We only had mozzarella sticks and nachos. The sticks were great but we were not really... More

Was there on a Saturday late afternoon. Quite a hopping place. Food quite good - had a burger and a salad - and from the look of the things around me other people were enjoying their food. Very good beer menu. I'd go back!

Food is good but always crowded. Only complaint. But this means service and food is wonderful. Many choices here and and if you are in a hurry not the place to be. Even with reservations. If not in a hurry it's great to hang out. Would be back soon!

Boynton has been our go-to restaurant for consistently good food & service for the past 20 years. However, our two most recent visits on consecutive weekends in March were disappointing. Spouse had steamers that were full of sand.on first visit. On most recent visit, I took a risk and ordered Pappardelle from list of specials. When the meal arrived, we... More

Always a 30 to 40 minute wait. On the upside always plenty of other patrons to talk to. I great menu selections from sandwiches,steak and seafood. I've had something from each selection. My last visit I enjoyed the fried sea scallop plate. Delicious! The service from the waitstaff is always courteous,attentive.

While returning our son back to the university, we discovered that Worcester was celebrating St. Patrick's Day a week sooner than expected. We decided to eat an early dinner somewhere fun. We decided the Boynton restaurant was the place to be so long as we could leave before early closing at 4 PM. The atmosphere was very charming and wonderful.... More
