Our waitress was good, but she was as exasperated as we were at the delay of the food prep. The food was very good but small on serving size and high in price. We made an early(5:15 PM) reservation. There were not a large number of patrons except at the bar. The tables surround the bar so it was noisy.... More

Havent been here in a while, but Ash Wednesday meant no meat for us. I had the fried oysters that were large and peppery and juicy. Then I had the Cioppino, which was truly tremendous. Plentiful assorted perfectly cooked seafood in a tasy tomato fennel broth. My wife started with flavorful raw littlenecks and then had the lobster risotto which... More

This is a very welcoming restaurant with typical southern hospitality. My meal was a seafood fettuccine filled with scallops and shrimp complemented with lots of herbs and sweet peppers and garlic. This was enjoyed on a Wednesday where a choice of wines were at half price. The serve was pleasantly attentive. The food was delivered quickly and piping hot. Located... More

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.

Called for a reservation no problem...when being seated for a party of 6 the table and seating room was VERY TIGHT. Asked if there was another table to accommodate more comfortable - no luck. We ordered a number of different meals nothing stood out very... More
