A great way to enjoy eating out w/o safety concerns. We are outside along the water with cool temperatures. The portions are generous and the service is prompt and friendly.

Food was very sub par... calamari was like out of a frozen bag, chick parm was poor due to the sauce. Do not wait for this restaurant. Go next door to two George’s it’s way better and less of a wait always. $120 for 3 people and not worth $50

This is the best gem in Boyton Beach. The food ,service , and ambiance are nothing to be compared to. And the waterfront view. 5 ++++ stars

First we were seated by a waitress that was going off shift. She never came back after seating us. About 15 minutes later another waitress came by and told us that she will be serving us. Our appetizers came but no waitress. I asked two different people for some lemons before we finally got them (10 minute wait). The main course came about 20 minutes later, brought by the busboy. No waitress in sight. I asked for some ketchup. He said yes but never returned. Then our waitress showed up. I asked her for ketchup. "No problem" she said. Guess what..she never came back. After waiting another 10 minutes I walked up to the waitress station and asked another busboy for some ketchup. I told him he was the third person I asked. He brought it right away. At this point I asked for the manager. I have been coming here for 17 years and never experienced anything this bad. Kudos to the manager for comping dessert. I think I am going to stay clear of this place for a while. Too many better places around. Including thw owners other restaurant Prime Catch

This was our first time going here. Food was very good but they should have given bread on table before dinner or salad plus dinner. You do not get much for the cost. Service was great. View of water was nice along with music which was good.

If you eat outdoors it can get a little noisy if you're sitting near the live music, but overall it's a great place to dine.

We love banana boat date nights! It’s outside on the Inteacoastal so the views are perfect and we can be outside and social distance. Blackened mahi mahi with mashed potatoes is my favorite! And the coconut banana cream pie is amazing if you are craving sweets. The staff is always friendly.

We went on a Tuesday night and it was pretty busy for the middle of the week. Sitting outside was very nice. Our server was very sweet but only came over once or twice to check on us through out the entire night. Service was pretty average but since food was good we would go back. We also told her that it was my mother in laws birthday and she said okay but never mentioned it again and didn’t even say happy birthday. Kind of disappointing

I was very dismayed to see the bar packed with people (not social distancing) and tables so close together despite the COVID-19 warnings. None of the patrons were wearing masks in the restaurant and many walked from their cars without a mask. This is a significant change form my last four visits when the bar was closed and tables were safely distanced. The staff is excellent and while they continue to wear masks, the amount of people in the restaurant without masks poses a health problem. I will not return with my family until we are all vaccinated and the Banana Boat does not pose a health risk.

Food was pretty good. Atmosphere was excellent. Band had a little too much Bass but they were good. Its never a good sign when you get a 2 minute lecture from your server as to why she cant take your appetizer order. Something about being busy. She was very sweet and moved way too fast. Overall good place to enjoy a dinner on the waterway.

We enjoyed our meal, favorites were the Lobster nachos and the oysters. We went for our Christmas dinner and sat outside (enclosed), enjoyed the live music. Prices were good... would definitely go again and recommend to others.

We've been here before couple times and loved it. They had a special holiday menu that didn't have the 2 items we were hoping to have. Waitress was pleasant. Food wasn't very warm and the glasses for drinks are small.

We had a lovely lunch overlooking the water. I had the coconut shrimp salad and my husband had a cheese burger. Both were very good especially my salad. The service was very good and we were seated outside as we requested. Our drink glasses were refilled and we were served in a timely manner. No one rushed us and we will definitely return again.

THE MANAGER OFFERED US A DESERT FOR THE MISCUE.
