Filet Mignon from The Boynton on Highland Street in Worcester, MA

Atmosphere: Liked

Ah, the Boynton. Yes, I’ve been there many times and it’s easy to write a review on a local favorite. The food is great and the atmosphere is loud and exciting. I’d consider it a Sports Bar/Restaurant. Yet, even with that being said, the food is amazing—from amazing gluten free pizza options to the traditional wings, burgers and large salads. There’s something for everyone.

Usually, I’m a burger maniac, but tonight I opted for the Filet Mignon. A ½ pound center cut tender piece of heaven. Mmm, good! It is served with your choice of potato and side. I opted to have the mixed vegetable medley and steamed broccoli as my second side. I’m doing my best to cut back on the carbs.

It was cooked perfectly; medium rare and super tender… Just the way I like it. The broccoli was also cooked great, super crunchy and green. My guess it was quickly blanched. The mixed vegetable medley had a wonderful subtle lemon flavor that added to it nicely.

Our server, Jamie, was very easy going and seemed to handle our group of 15 easily and was quick; she was responsive and had a wonderful smile. Along with her team of servers, the food was served all at the same time (not an easy task for a group this large)—kudos to the kitchen staff who pulled this off as well as having to service a completely full restaurant at the same time.

Overall, it’s easy for me to say that I like this place, as we tend to frequent it often. I like the range of food options available to me, as well as all the amazing beers on tap.The Boynton wouldn’t be considered gourmet, but if you are looking for above average, seriously tasty food, that will fill you and your family up and at a good price, then this is a great place to go.
