This was my first time eating at Boom and it was very good! Finding Boom however, is a little difficult. Once we found the location, we pulled into the parking lot, but could not enter because the bar was down and there was no one at the guard house. If we were not meeting our colleagues, we might have turned... More

The atmosphere inside is very nice. If you sit outside you overlook the marina. So either way - inside or outside, you can't go wrong. They have a nice menu and the food quality is very good. We also thought the service was great. Very nice place for a casual get refined meal. Kids are welcome. Very nice.

We visit often. The food is great especially the tomato bisque soup. The view from the deck is beautiful. I would highly recommend Boom on your summer shoreline visit

Boom is a nice spot to eat. We are frequent customers of Boom because of the good food and the deck overlooking the sound and the boats. There are many menu choices for any palate from soups and salads to great entrees. Service is prompt and friendly. Never had a bad experience there.

You almost can't go wrong with out door seating on the shoreline. The atmosphere outdoors is great. I can't say that I loved the food though. But sometimes you just go somewhere to relax and enjoy the view.

We visited Boom for a third time with hopes of things getting better. We sat on the deck. What a mess! Plastic tables with cheap plastic covers (not tablecloths). The deck was dirty, the chairs had holes in them and everything was mismatched. While the food was okay, the prices are very high and the fact that this restaurant expects... More

Just had lunch there today. The one star is for the view. One waitress was hostess, waitperson, and busperson. Made for extremely slow service. The prices are astronomical, as high as $24.50 for a sandwich!!! Everything overpriced. Crab cakes were bread crumbs flavored with crab. Salad greens were rotting and the tomato was sparse and horrid.

Beautiful location at the end of Pilot's Point matched only by the exquisite preparations coming out of the kitchen. I savored every bite of the ocean fresh flounder francaise. Worth looking for. I found them in CTLiving - a local Connecticut resource. Enjoy!

I've visited the Boom 3 times before writing this hoping the food and service would match the view and quite frankly the price. Unfortunately, I was disappointed again. The view itself is outstanding, try to be there at sunset and you will be thrilled with the view by the way the view is only good from the deck so do... More
