  • m

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!

  1. 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.

    2. 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.

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

          2. 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.
