I enjoy cooking so I don't go out often but Boitsons is one of my favorite spots. The food and wine are consistently good, I always meet interesting people at the bar and last night, at the end of our dinner I ordered a fried...More

Dinner with my husband two weeks in a row. First week was really great, but the second was not so good. My husband had fried chicken both visits and he really enjoyed them. Crisp, heavily coated moist prices of chicken ( leg, thigh, breast) were...More

Stopped in for dinner with friends on a Saturday evening just as the rain subsided. Ate on their deck in the rear of the restaurant which made it even more enjoyable on a balmy evening. I had the fried chicken, which was perfectly moist, delicious...More

Question everything. The food at Boiston's was mediocre masquerading as upscale. Mediocre delivery, mediocre preparation, upscale prices. The "molasses glazed salmon with jasmine rice and summer vegetables" was syrupy sweet salmon on top of fragrance-free (unlike Jasmine) oversalted rice, dripping with same syrup, and the...More

Recommend a half-dozen oyster on the half-shell (the ones from Massachusetts especially). Excellent wine. Chicken dinner fantastic. Good friendly service, too.

Tiny place packed with local flavor. Food and service were great. We loved the idea of local sourcing most of their food and ingredients. My husband enjoyed the locally brewed beer. We'd definitely return. We may even say they had the worlds best fried chicken.

The dinning room is small, but the décor is extremely interesting if you like odd collectables. The bar lines one wall and tables the other. The place might be a bit dark for some people, but I loved it. The drinks are well made. The...More

Let's get the one negative out of the way up-front: Eating *inside* at Boitson's can be cramped. With a limited space available, the management has done its best to make the most use of the available square footage. That being said, if the weather is...More
