The atmosphere here is crowded and very noisy. I like that but I know that most people that go to a restaurant want a quiet place. The cuisine is very good, especially the burgers which are not expensive and delicious. I come back regularly.

Had a 6:00 reservation for 14 and were seated on time. The service was good and we received our meals quickly. We were attending an 8:00 show at DCU Center and made it in plenty of time.

Love the food at the Boyton. I go there frequently. Portions are generous and prices are very reasonable. Service is always great and food is delivered quick. Their muscle appetizer is a meal in itself and So delicious!

Pizza here is always a good choice! Nice variety on menu. Varying prices and something for everyone. Service is good but it is a loud place. Just know that going in. Better for lunch than dinner. Back dining room smelled damp and musty.

The food is good and the menu is very extensive. Not worth the long wait, lack of parking, and high volume of noise.

An excellent local restaurant which originally started as a local tavern in the 1930’s. In the 1980’s changed owners and was expanded into a full restaurant/bar. The bar area is mainly a sports bar which could at times be noisy, but the dining room looked...More
