Reviewed 29 August 2011

We have been going to Golden Boy every summer since 1999, and this year it became obvious that the previous owner's standards have been abandoned. The chowder used to be thick and creamy, now it tastes like it came out of a can. The fried scallops looked and tasted like "McScallops", and the broiled scallops had no flavor whatsoever. Sad to say, we won't be going back.

we were recommended to this place by a local. didn't know we were going to a fast food joint. My wife and I had lobster. best lobster I've ever had but the ambiance and service were terrible. we're not locals so when we were asking questions to the staff, like what's a steamer (steamed what? it was clams) they rolled their eyes at each other (dumb tourists). you order at a fast food counter and eat at greasy tables. still, absolutely fantastic lobster, melt in your mouth.

Food very good but expensive - fried clams and oysters delicious and great wings. Service poor - after annual visits for almost 10 years we wont return. There are other choices where the business is more appreciated.

We tried a couple of these cheap seafood/fast food restaurant types during our week of vacation in Cape Cod. Goldenboy was my second choice overall. To my opinion, this place is good enough for lunch but don't expect a wonderful or romantic moment there for dinner.

Pros are :
*Cheap
*Chowder is excellent
*Fast service
*Freshness of the food
*Lunch here would be nice

Cons are :
*Too much fried plates, greasy
*Menu is confusing (my girlfriend ordered a shrimp roll and it was a fried shrimp roll) Even though is was never indicated!
*Ugly place but clean
