Delray Beach, in the Palm Beaches area of Florida, is quickly becoming one of the Sunshine State’s newest hotspots thanks to its chic and upscale enclaves of boutiques and tasty dining spots. The trendy eatery, Boston’s on the Beach, comes up whenever Delray Beach is mentioned in many conversations that I have had. My daughter, Peyton, and I headed to eat at the raved about Boston’s on the Beach to find out what all the hype was about.
Boston’s on the Beach is accurately named as the restaurant sits on Delray’s beachfront. Self-parking is limited, but valet parking is available in the parking lot behind the restaurant. After dinner, have your ticket validated inside of the restaurant for a discounted rate.
Outdoor Patio Dining
Peyton and I scored a table on the patio with great views of the palm trees along Ocean Boulevard. The atmosphere was completely relaxed. Guests at Boston’s on the Beach were laid back in casual attire and either enjoying conversation or watching sporting events on the TVs. Boston’s on the Beach allows pets at the sidewalk level tables. A Pooch menu is available for ordering your pet’s favorite entrées.
Starters and Cocktails
Peyton and I chose a half dozen Peel and Eat Shrimp dusted with Old Bay seasoning as a starter. We also ordered the Onion Dip, a unique dish that sounded yummy. Both appetizers arrived looking fabulous. The shrimp, paired with a tangy cocktail sauce, was perfect. We were blown away by the Five Onion Dip. It looked so simple but the taste was almost addictive. The house-made chips, a specialty at Boston’s on the Beach, were dusted heavily with onion powder and were so good! Peyton and I also ordered cocktails, the Goombay Splash (which came with a floater shot of Bacardi Black Rum) and Rock-A-Rita. I got my Instagram picture for the day with those beauties!
Boston’s on the Beach is famous for New England style seafood and local fresh catches.
I originally wanted to order the Rum Glazed Mahi-Mahi, but after eating our appetizers, I was too full. I settled for something much smaller and less filling—the Red, White, and Blue Salad. My salad was good! The homemade blue cheese dressing was divine, although there was almost too much. The salad had plenty of fresh crumbled Applewood bacon and diced tomatoes. I appreciated that the lettuce was not half frozen, as it is in some restaurants. The zesty balsamic drizzle was a nice touch!
Peyton’s appetite wasn’t so stifled so she chose the Steamed Lobster meal. Wow! The Steamed Lobster came with a small corn-on-the-cob and red bliss potatoes in a steam pot. Peyton asked our waitress for some help managing the whole lobster, so she brought it back in easy to crack pieces. The lobster with drawn butter was rich and tasty! We ended our meal stuffed and incredibly satisfied.
