MENU

B onef i sh Mac ’s S por t s Grille is a sports bar, so the menu of­fers the usual wings, sand­wiches, burg­ers etc. But un­like most sim­i­lar places, there is an em­pha­sis on seafood. The ex­ten­sive menu also in­cludes sal­ads, pasta and veg­e­tar­ian op­tions, so one should find some­thing to like.

AT­MOS­PHERE

Yup! It’s a sports bar so there are TVs and it can get loud, es­pe­cially on the pa­tio. We tried to go there on a Fri­day but de­cided to pass be­cause the wait was too long and the noise a bit too much. This time we picked a Sun­day and though the pa­tio was loud, in­side was a much calmer space. The marinethemed decor is a nice touch that def­i­nitely adds to the slightly rus­tic vibe.

OUR FA­VORITE FOOD/PRICE

We de­cided to go with seafood op­tions — the “Grand 10880 For­est Hill Blvd., Welling­ton, 561-798-6227 Hours: Mon.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-1 a.m.; Fri.- Sat., 11 a.m.-2 a.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-mid­night Note: Post writ­ers will anony­mously visit a restau­rant in your neigh­bor­hood each week in search of the best menu item. They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week. Slam” Fried Seafood Combo ($19.94) and the Drunken Sailor Pasta ($18.99). The Grand Slam plat­ter fea­tured bat­tered white fish, crab cake, clam strips and fried shrimp and was way too much food for one pers on. The pas t a di sh had scal­lops, shrimp and mahi tossed in an a la vodka sauce served over penne pasta. It was served with a house or Cae­sar salad. Though the fried good­ness was what we ex­pected, we pre­ferred the pasta be­cause all the el­e­ments worked re­ally well and it wasn’t too salty. The gen­er­ous por­tions meant that lunch was all set for the fol­low­ing day.

REA­SON TO GO

The ex­ten­sive menu and the sports bar vibe, if that’s your thing, are def­i­nite rea­sons to check out this spot.

SER­VICE

Our server seemed a lit­tle dis­tracted ini­tially, but over­all was pro­fes­sional and help­ful.

NOISE LEVEL

In­side was quiet on the Sun­day we vis­ited, so we could have a con­ver­sa­tion with­out rais­ing our voices.

KID FRIENDLY

There is a menu for chil­dren 10 and younger that in­cludes hot dog, burger and grilled cheese sand­wich. To en­sure that all abused, ne­glected and aban­doned chil­dren are rep­re­sented in all court pro­ceed­ings by a court-ap­pointed ad­vo­cate through the Guardian ad Litem pro­gram. in­volved; re­port all find­ings; ad­vo­cate for the child’s best in­ter­est; and fa­cil­i­tate nec­es­sary ser­vices to en­sure suc­cess­ful de­vel­op­ment, the right to a safe and per­ma­nent home, and to cre­ate a bet­ter fu­ture for these chil­dren. The GAL takes the op­por­tu­nity to meet with the child’s rel­a­tives, school teach­ers, fos­ter par­ents and oth­ers in­volved in that child’s life. But most im­por­tantly, the GAL will also meet with the child in or­der to re­as­sure them that they are there to be a trusted per­son in their lives and to help them with what­ever they may need.

We team up with the Guardian ad Litem Pro­gram to en­sure that chil­dren in the de­pen­dency sys­tem have what they need, from re­sources within the com­mu­nity, to ex­pe­ri­ence as close to a nor­mal life as they can while in the sys­tem. This in­cludes pro­vid­ing them with a vol­un­teer; a wide range of ser­vices; ed­u­ca­tional sup­port; and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties such as sum­mer camp, re­triev­ing band in­stru­ments, sport­ing equip­ment and tick­ets to school ac­tiv­i­ties such as dances and prom.
