Fun place to eat right on the water - make sure you get a table outside for the fun ambience and occasional live music!

Always good food and service. Great views. Eat outdoors if you're Covid averse. Indoors and bars packed elbow to elbow and no masking.

One of the best casual spots to eat in Boynton Beach is Banana Boat, on their outdoor deck on a sunny day. Beautiful to watch the boats pass under the drawbridge. The food is always light and delicious, and the waitstaff is pleasant and knowledgeable. It's always our go-to spot for a special, but casual lunch.

With reservations we needed to wait a bit for an acceptable table not under the bridge. Waiter was attentive, food was delicious. Cocktails, Conch chowder, Seafood Cobb salad, Crabcake BLT. Celebrated a birthday with yummy Key Lime pie.

They mixed up our open table reservation. We were sent a message via text, that our table was ready, one hour before our reservation time. Strange. I ignored the first one, thinking it must have been an error. But then it repeated. So, I called and was told that the table was ready for us. I explained that it was a full one hour early but we could pack up and leave now. She didn’t want it, but I insisted on giving our name. She said, no worries..the table would be available. Of course, when we arrived 20 minutes later, there was no available table. The “manager”. (? Cathy) was quite rude…ending with a sarcastic and unnecessary “a merry Christmas and HAPPY new year” as we were walking away.
It was patronizing and a little immature on her part.

We had a table within 10 minutes and the food and service were wonderful.
We witnessed the manager running around, bussing tables when needed and keeping things organized. She certainly works hard and I didn’t want to be a problem.

We were flustered and a little annoyed after rushing there. No apologies, just sarcasm on her part.

Disappointing.

I don’t think, in that moment, she represented the restaurant well.

I just don’t think passive aggressive comments ever really help.


Anyways, the food is good and hopefully our next experience will be better.

We have family visiting for Christmas so we wanted to do something extra special for lunch. It was our first visit to Banana Boat and it was the perfect place to celebrate the holidays. Our server was so friendly and spent time answering our questions. The food was delicious. The view was incredible. It was so much fun watching boats sail by. We all had a wonderful time.
