We are hungry for some great seafood in a casual environment. Would someone please suggest a place for us in the Boyton Beach area? Thanks!

    I always liked the Two Georges Waterfront Grille for beers & dolphin sandwiches by the water. Stick to the sandwiches and the specials and the food is fine. The view is tough to beat & I would suggest going early or planning on a wait.

      A perfect description! I totally agree.

      As noted by other respondents, "great seafood" at Two Georges is a pretty big stretch. I was there a couple of nights ago for soggy conch fritters. The place was WAY too noisy -- between the half dozen blaring TVs, music, and Banana Boat directly across the water with their own equipment cranked up, it was just about unbearable. Why would anyone want to sit on the water and be subjected to that kind of racket? Our out of town guest seemed to like it all pretty well tho...Guess it depends.

        When I visit the family in Boynton, we always head to Snapper's on Congress. Casual, decent seafood, moderately priced (really like the plank halibut). Drive 20 minutes north to John G's on the ocean - great Fish and Chips and some other good seafood entrees, but they're not open for dinner.

          I've posted before about Two Georges. Good for drinks and apps, nothing more. Another choice in Boynton on the water would be Prime Catch. Lots of fish and seafood to choose from. The restaurant is very large and can get quite noisy; but the food is good (no superlatives here, though), and probably about the best you'll find within the confines of Boynton Beach. The tables outside on the water are actually the quietest and most pleasant. It is owned by the same folks who own Banana Boat and 5th Avenue Grill. It's located on Woolbright in the Winn Dixie shopping center on the southwest side of the bridge.

            George's is best at about 2 in the afternoon during the week. On the weekends, Georges and the adjacent Banana Boat are magnets for the penis boat crowd. Food is really not the point of 2Georges, but the "numb runners" enjoyed in the relative tranquility of a weekday afternoon are tonic for the soul. Makes for a great segue into the dinner hour--dinner somewhere else, that is.

            I know this thread hasn't been picked up in a while, but I thought it was a good place to note a find. Just a few blocks from 2 geoges at 531 Ocean Ave is Hurricane Alley. No view, no fancy and rather cheap, but the tuna and mahi are among the best I've ever had, and I'm a self admitted snob on such things. My wife also had the softshell crabs last year and was extremely happy.

              Head just up the road to the Old Key Lime House on Ocean in Lantana. Food is better (selection of crab cake sandwich or pricier entrees) and the atmosphere is much better too. The restaurant section is isolated from the rowdiness of the bar side, and it's in the "oldest waterfront restaurant building in Florida", with thatch roof for the outside dining area and colorful key west style decor. http://www.oldkeylimehouse.com/

                I've been visiting family up in Boynton Beach now for the past 2 years and really can't say of one restaurant that I love in that area. Have been to Snappers and didn't like it at all-reminded me of a Red Lobster kind of place-don't care to go back -however there were lots of people eating there when I went and a big line outside. Been to Prime Catch also-better but nothing outstanding ..My Aunt and Uncle have gone back there. For me, I would rather drive into Delray where there are much better restaurants. I also really like Suite 225 which is in Lantana and happens to be right down the street from the Old Key Lime House that Panthur recommended above. (Took us about 20-25 min. from Boynton Blvd. and Jog Rd) Its one of my favorite places to go when I'm up in that area. Its Japanese Asian cuisine...lots of very innovative sushi to choose from all very good but their main entrees are also outstanding especially their seafood...Snapper is excellent as well as their teriakye salmon/chicken dishes.(My Aunt had one of their shrimp dishes and also loved it) Menu not very descriptive so ask waiter what else comes with entree. Chopped Salad was also very good with amazing miso dressing and wasbi peas. Have been several times here and always look forward to going again. Had some amazing appetizers on the menu..hoison ribs suppose to be excellent.and would like to try them next time....shrimp appetizer also good. Have other things on menu for those who don't want seafood. Highly recommend this place but call for reservation as books up fast. (561-582-2255) Casual atmosphere and can sit outside or in.
