My husband and I decided to try Boom on a beautiful fall day. We ate outside and enjoyed a lovely view of the harbor. The staff is friendly and welcoming and well familiar with the menu. The oysters on the half shell were fresh and very good. My tuna tartare was spectacular - tasty, perfectly seasoned and again, very fresh.... More

We had an early dinner at Boom before attending a presentation of Bye, Bye Birdie at the Goodspeed Opera. We hadn't been here in quite a while so we were curious to see if it had changed over the past few years. I'm happy to say that it's all good. We had the flounder Fish and Chips and the Crab...

A restaurant in a harbor with many beautiful yachts featuring indoor and outdoor dining with a beautiful view. I had the flounder and crab over rice nicely presented and very delicious! The fish tasted like it was just caught. My friend had the crab cakes which she stated as being very flavorful. Reservations are suggested.

We sat outside on a great evening with perfect weather. The sunset view is just right. Beautiful yachts are docked right in front of you. The food was excellent. We expected wonderful ambiance but the quality of the food was exceptional. I recommend the fried oysters which were lightly fried as they said. I had the Angus beef that was... More

It's so pretty having drinks overlooking the river and boats. Service is always very good. They have a great cocktail menu with up to date tastes. We enjoyed very... More

Went for lunch and had oysters on the half shell, boom Burger, and the tuna tartare. Oysters were small but tasty, burger was very good and the tartare was delicious. The view of the marina is what makes it all worth while. Watching the boats come in and out of the marina is very enjoyable. Our Waitress Ashley was attentive,... More

We have visited this area in the winter time, to be by the shore. I discovered this place, and returned this summer and we decided to give BOOM a try. The appetizers alone, were beyond delightful. The North Carolina Chowder, the Tuna Tartar, the pear salad, the red onion rings, and fried oysters were all amazing! My wife and daughter... More

If you get their early grab a table on the outdoor deck. The food was wonderful. Our server checked on us several times. Great spot to meet friends to dinner on the shore.
