Sunday is a day to relax away from the kitchen. So, indulge yourself and your family in the best brunch in the city. Ideal for all ages and food types. Lovely atmosphere and excellent service.

I had heard that the brunch at Boca Bay was very good. Let me be clear, what they served was very fresh and very good. The danish, croissants and bagels were delicious. However, it is still not worth spending over $50 for 2 for breakfast. YES, Breakfast! We all know that brunch means some breakfast and some lunch. The omelette... More

I had dined at this restaurant before and was anxious to return. On the first visit the food was excellent; however on this visit it was just satisfactory. The atmosphere at this location is great, it has great decor. The service is very good; however I wasn't impressed this time with the food. The salad had little to no dressing... More

"Craving satisfied". I enjoyed a serving of eggs Benedict, but would have enjoyed the... More

My wife and I decided to try the Brunch. It was well above our expectations. There are 4 basic stations: eggs and omelets, hot entrees, salmon and pasta, and sweets. It is buffet style and all the food we sampled was great. Excellent service and very reasonably priced. Could be the best Brunch in WIlmington.

I am so glad that my wife and I decided to cancel or original plans and visit this establishment. We are celebrating five years of marriage and elected to dine here for our actual celebration meal. First, let us talk decor. We walked in and were sat promptly after a call ahead. The feel of the place felt like a... More

While the menu doesn't vary, they do have daily specials. No matter what you order, the meal is always perfectly prepared and delicious. The sushi shrimp dumplings are better than the dumplings served at the Bento Box! Always great service too!

My family ate at Boca Bay tonight for my birthday dinner. When making the reservation for 4 people it was clearly stated that we were there to celebrate a birthday. No one at the restaurant made mention of the birthday. We started at the bar as the restaurant offers Happy Hour appetizers from 5-7. The calamari was plentiful and sat... More
