    Food was ok, better in the past. Wait staff ok, better last time. Octopus lousy, calamari great, filet pretty good, fish good but not great. Over all it was fine but not really a memorable meal.

    Overpriced and not that tasty. The brussels sprouts were terribly salty. Thankfully Stephanie the server was amazing and provided incredible service. Nice ambiance but the food is not worth the price.

    Everything was wonderful. We were able to get a table outside on the water. The weather was perfect! Sara our waitress was excellent. Only negative was at the end of our lunch a gentleman (and I use that term loosely), left his boat docked near us and turned up the music so loud to be heard all the way back to the outside bar and seated himself at the bar. It was horribly loud at which point instead of ordering desert, we left. Someone in Management should have been on this situation. Very disappointing.

    The best thing about this place is the food/menu, ambience second, and then the service. We took my dad here for Father’s Day; it could have been because it was a late dinner but the staff was a little unenthusiastic. That aside, it did not take way from the fact that the food was delicious and they had vegan options! Not something we have found in many seafood restaurants, so it made for a great dining experience for all of us - my parents are pescatarian, my brother vegan, and myself with no diet restrictions. Will be back again, maybe on an earlier shift though.

    Today was my second time visiting here. The first time was an incredible positive experience. So much so that I made a reservation that same night (over a month in advance) I expected the same today but was so disappointed. The hostess became hostile when asked a question. My waiter was below average. I would have left after my encounter with the hostess but knew I’d struggle making a reservation anywhere else on Father’s Day. The only reason I might return is if I knew for a fact that Delron was working on the same day. You can get good food anywhere, it is quality service that makes people want to become a regular.

    The selection was nice for lunch. I am a good cook so when the waitress asked me how I wanted the salmon cooked, I was surprised. I should have said medium rare, but I said medium thinking "This is a seafood place. They surely will not overcook the fish." Wrong. It was too cooked for me. Caesar salad was good. Drinks were refreshing.

    DelRon took amazing care of us. The food, as always, was fresh & delicious! I have been trying new menu items and enjoyed the Superfoods Salad with Chicken. We love sharing the Ceviche appetizer to start and pick a different dessert each time and we are always quite satisfied. Thank you for another great dining experience!

    I had been in Boatyard over 40 times, last 6 months everything is going worse like last days at former "Bimini" Restaurant Seafood doesn't much to sides, even I don't want to eat rice have to, They offering only asparagus and green beans (bitter taste) Guests can't have choice to order fresh grilled vegetables or mushrooms, Boatyard haven't any tasty sauce, This kind of food probably would be good for military on the front The Service had ADHD hyperactivity don't want to listen just running around, Even I told that I don't want rice, they brought anyway, and they pick up my plate even I didn't put down my cutlery! Probably you have bad restaurant management or owner doesn't care about Restaurant

    You never get a second chance to make a first good impression. The food was delectable. We started with an appetizer of calamari which was nice and brown. I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich on brioche bun which was grilled to perfection. Our server, Josh was cordial and very attentive. He was Informative regarding the drinks and menu. Excellent food, Excellent service!

    We enjoyed a pre-cruise Friday evening dinner at the Boatyard. We have been here before and again we’re amazed by the freshness and flavors of our dishes. We enjoyed the brussel sprouts and octopus for appetizers and had the paella and grouper for our main entrees. For desserts we had raspberry sorbet and the Crème Brûlée. This is a happening place with amazing food and a wonderful wait staff. The specialty drinks were also great!!

    I had a business dinner with 6 total people. The food was very good, the service was excellent. They have a bread that is one of their specialties, it’s made with honey, and is something I highly recommend. We also ordered the Admiral Seafood Tower for an appetizer. The tower was very good, but could have been slightly better, I would still recommend if you have a group that likes seafood. Our group was actually fairly full after the tower, so most ordered smaller appetizer dishes, they were very good as well. The clients were very happy, and the noise level was low enough we could converse, but as it is an open atmosphere, it was a bit noisy compared to a private room, or smaller sectioned dinning area. Overall, I would return, and would recommend the Boatyard restaurant as a great experience.
