At first glance, I was thinking tourist trap and it probably IS during the summer. But it was a late August night and people were probably getting kids ready for school; so it was quiet. Just a few other customers.

We started off with drinks; my duaghter had a strawberry Mojito that she said was really good.

We both ordered pasta dishes and they were both delicious. The service was MOST impressive; very attentive. Regular refills of water, making sure everything arrived on time and was tasty. Simple right? That is what a good wait staff SHOULD do! But we both know that doesn't happen. It did at Boston's though. Fun place, good place to watch whatever sport you are interested in, good food, GREAT service!

With all the other great restaurants nearby, its a wonder anyone would return. I wouldn't. Long wait for boring food. Tired servers. If it wasn't for their great location and the high number of one time tourist visits, i wonder if this Bostons would survive.

Stopped by with party of 4 and meals were decent. Service rather slow but was a nice alternative to the aquarium's cafeteria. Portions fair, prices typical for the area.

The place was not very busy. Yet it took so long for our order to arrive. When it finally came it was tasteless and dull. Waste of time and money. We did not get ill, but it added nothing to our fun morning at the Aquarium and waterfront.

My family and I went to Boston’s hoping for a relaxing dinner and were very disappointed. The server brought our drinks and took our food order then disappeared. We waited 30 minutes until she came back to the table and asked if we wanted any dessert. We told her we had not had dinner yet! She “went to check the kitchen” and returned saying a large party backed up the kitchen and the food would be ready in 5 minutes. Unfortunately 15 minutes later we flagged down another server to please find ours. She came to the table and we asked to have the food to go because we did not want to have to add time on our parking meter. She said no problem but again vanished! We ended up walking out of Boston’s one hour after being seated without eating one bite. There are many better choices in the area, don’t waste your time with Boston’s in Long Beach!
