“Night out at the Boynton”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Boynton is a good place to get some good food and cold drinks at a reasonable price. They have a wide variety to choose from on the menu whether it be for lunch or dinner. Friendly staff who are there to make your visit a pleasant one. Parking can be tough to find on busy days, but worth it.

“Average at best....”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We met some friends in Worcester since it is half way between where each of us lives. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was pretty busy...a good sign. Unfortunately we were disappointed in our meals. The guys order burgers and asked the waited what medium rare meant and were assured that they would be pink to maybe a little red....they were wrong...the burgers came medium well. The ladies had salads and even though the portions were large, the quality is only average. On a positive note...the french fries were very good! Not sure that we would return.

“Hopping Restaurants in more ways than one”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

It is true from other reviews that I read that the Boynton can be very busy. And often there is a wait. But they always have a great beer selection. With different blackboard selections that are switched out. The restaurant is across the street from a very popular, fancier, seafood restaurant. I would HIGHLY recommend saving your cash because the seafood here is far better and less expensive here. It's a great place to hang out, have a few beers and chat. Just be aware that when it gets crowded it becomes a bit noisy.

“Good pub food, great draft beer list”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Stopped in here with a friend for a quick lunch, and I was really impressed with the draft beer selection and pub-style food. My husband (a WPI alum) had recommended this to me, as it was one of his college haunts. 50+ beers on draft (including 3 casks), a menu diverse enough to please everyone, and a nice casual ambiance make this a place I'd be happy to visit again the next time I'm in Worcester.

“Better than expected bar food”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

What college student doesn't want the "Boynton Classic" on a Saturday afternoon? I was pleasantly surprised though when the menu also included homemade hummus and even more surprised when it tasted great.

Asked for a side of baby carrots and celery sticks to go with it. SIde note: Years ago overheard a woman order them for her children, and I have been doing so too ever since. Most bars/restaurant will have the celery sticks and carrot slices for the buffalo wings.

p.s. There's plenty of parking around back.
