My 88 year young CH wants to check out the Boyton. She wants to have low key cuisine and an Amstel. When we went into the Sole Proprietor last week she commented. I have not been in years. Any comments or other recs please in Worcester. We head out in two weeks.

    I've also really enjoyed the food at Perfect Game over at 64 Water St in the Canal District. I was pleasantly surprised with their food and the housemade ranch dressing is fabulous. it's more of a sports bar than the boynton, but we've found the food to be worth the trip.

      How about Nick's Bar? Cool, unique atmosphere, great food (limited menu/German influence) and live music. What could be better?? ;)

        the boynton is always good for a decent meal. great for crowds as there really is something for everyone. i find the entrees a bit pricey but the sandwiches are great and very reasonably priced. the pizza is also good, although also not cheap.

        you could always bring her to ralph's for a cheeseburger and a beer :)

                They're pretty famous for their meatball grinders.

                  i'm not sure that they have much of the non-meat variety. maybe a cheese plate and some italian bread that they use for the sandwiches. most of what i've heard raved about is meat - meatballs or sausage either on pasta or in a sandwich.

                  i have yet to try either ralph's or vincent's, although they've been on my list forever! i need to get there.

                    Yeah, not much there besides the sandwiches. I'll be there tonight.

              Hey A,

              The Boynton has pretty good, ginormous salads. My husband likes the eggplant sandwich. I can't attest to knowing anything about their meat dishes. Their pizzas are popular.

              One tip: go early. It's always mobbed. I mean really mobbed. Don't want your mom to get stuck waiting for 45 minutes.
