Are you feeling really hungry? I mean training for a marathon haven’t eaten all day hungry. We’ll have I got the perfect restaurant for you.

The Boston Grill and Steakhouse is situated in the busy Lisburn Leisure park and it has a very family oriented feel with large booths to fit the biggest broods and bright diner interior design including some eye-catching neon lights.It is a large menu to suit all of tastes but what I was alluding to earlier is the portion size. The fresh dishes which come out of the kitchen are MASSIVE.

A friend and I popped along to check it out recently by the end of the experience we felt gluttonous but very well feed. We started with the highly recommended Boston Sharing Platter for two. Our eyes popped out of our heads when we saw this large platter of BBQ ribs,duck wings,nachos,chicken strips and garlic ciabatta. It was all served with in house fresh dips and salsa it was delicious. We concluded it was a meal in itself and we would return for the platter and a couple of glasses of wine before a cinema date so point soon. (The omniplex cinema is just a few metres from the restaurant.)


I not realising the portion sizes had then ordered the half-chicken and ribs with sweet potatoes again it was MASSIVE but delicious the chicken was succulent and the rib sauce went everywhere (a sign of good ribs in my book.) I’m embarrassed to say I couldn’t even eat half the plate but no food goes to waste the staff at the Boston Grill are very happy to make you a doggy bag to take home.

Speaking about the staff they are friendly,efficient and on hand with suggestions and recommendations. The informed us of ingredients and topped us with drinks and dips throughout the night.

We rounded the night off sharing a Banoffee cheesecake not that we needed any at this point but desserts are my favourite. It was lip smackingly delicious.

So if you are looking for the real US diner experience with big flavours and big portions I would say the Boston Grill in Lisburn is the place for you.
