    I came on a Tuesday, the one night they don't have any promotions. Ordered the firecracker shrimp appetizer... delectable, and surely artery-hardening. I think it was a great appetizer for the price (9.95). I'd like to come back when I'm hungrier so I can try a few more things. The person sitting next to me was eating crab legs and he was definitely enjoying them. Add a glass of wine, and the whole meal was $18. Kind of a weird vibe though. I'm sure when the place is hopping with business, it's not so noticeable but it was nearly empty, and I felt like I was in a warehouse, not a restaurant.

    I have been hearing wonderful things about this restaurant since I have moved here from New Orleans... I was reluctant at first because there wasn't a wait at 7:45 on a Saturday night but once we were eating the fried green tomatoes app, I was in heaven! My Mom and I both consider ourselves pretty good foodies and for us both to be pleased was a great treat in a "little big" place like Southaven!

    We had never been here... By the look of the menu... The food that was prepared we thought this would be a lil more of a romantic place... Quite so we could talk... Had no idea we would be in a room with 2 very loud groups drinking like crazy kids running around.. Then the music started on the other side and wow it was so loud the door didn't get shut to our side til 30 min later. Then if the phone rang the girl would have to stand behind out table to talk.. Not all what we had thought.. Our waitress was very sweet and apologetic... Even when the computer system went down and she could put our order in she was honest with us, could not had a better waitress. We thought by making reservations it would be a quiter place guess we were wrong.

    Was looking forward to some boiled seafood. Crawfish was out of season (can't fault them on that one); shrimp is not from the gulf much less the US (so it's frozen); grilled oysters lacked flavor and were under cooked (waiter said they were better than any in Louisiana. Obviously meet been to acme oyster house in Nola). Appetizers were good (fried pickles and crawfish dip). Even the kids didn't eat the fried shrimp and love love the stuff.

    My friend is Lactose intolerant and I am Gluten intolerant. We KNOW what we can or can not eat and therefore we ASK the right questions. We studied the menu online before coming. She had 3 ideas and after asking the waitress if it had cream in it or simply Parmesan (the aging process breaks down the lactose). based on that answer, my friend ordered the Crawfish pasta. when it arrived (the last of the 4 orders), she recognized the cream and sent the waitress to find out EXACTLY what was in it...HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM! so she reordered....the fried green tomato blt with MAYO that came dry. same with the Mushrooms, she specifically asked parmesan only, but they added the mozzarella anyway . had to send it back.

    We made the reservation hoping to get in quickly before our tickets to the Riverkings game. They stuck us in the back where is seemed as if they set up for BINGO. We were surrounded by what we said was the Golden Girls. This place was lifeless and when I got up to go to the bathroom, there was a whole other side that was hip and trendy...why were we put in the senior citizen side? I took my husband there for our first time to eat crablegs the food was good, but the atmospheere was pituful.

    The dining area was spare, with concrete floors and gray walls and the floor was littered with trash. Service was friendly but slow. Our gumbo was delicious and hot but then things went downhill quickly. I ordered grilled grouper but asked for it without the funky sauce described on the menu. After a long wait it arrived with the sauce on it. The waiter took it back and a short time later brought a grouper without the sauce. Unfortunately the fish was only partially cooked and was inedible. We paid the bill and left without comment.

    My meal was really delicious. I ordered the combo meal; catfish,shrimp and oysters with baked potato and squash. The catfish was authentic not Swai and very fresh. The baked potato and squash was fresh and delicious. The portion was large enough for two meals. This place is very noisy and don't recommend for a romantic date unless you are the partying type. Overall I would return for the meal.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/8/2014
    Portions too small for price. Gruper was the size of half a brim fillet. No Crawfish in the sauce. Oysters were smaller than my pinky nail and not cooked properly. Took FOREVER to receive all appraisers. The raw oysters brought to my friend were brought quickly and a nice size. I believe it was because we had a good waitress and she put them together, but it took 30 minutes for the rest of the appraisers to arrive and the main course came right on top of it. I was just really let down. After discussion our party of six will not be returning again. And I'm afraid I can't recommend it to anyone either. And the second hand smoke was way to much.

    Having been there many times before, we've always enjoyed the food and service. However, we were seated in a room next to a large, extremely, noisy party of 20 - 25 people. When we requested to be moved to the other room, we were told we could not be moved. My husband looked in the other room and there were numerous tables open. When i called the manager, Terry, later that evening from home, i was told that all reservations made through the Open Table website for non-smokers were put in that room, and the other room was for call-in reservations. We noticed there were non-smoking tables open in the other room. We were very disappointed. We might have stayed longer, and had a few drinks and dessert, but the atmosphere was intolerable.

    We went prior to a concert at the Lander's Center. The service and food was just ok. We were told when we arrived that the kitchen was behind. We accepted this as the reason. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the surf and turf. He loved his. The atmosphere was very good and we will try again as there were several other items on the menu we wanted to try. I don't like the fact that they allow smoking in the building, It was on an upper level but I could still smell it.

    The Boiling Point has been active for years, but Valentines Night was my first dining experience there. It was just right. My reservations had us seated in the side room away from the more vibrant bar/main room area, and it was separated well enough that no matter the level of the loud music in said main room, it didn't carry over to our room. Our room stayed rather quiet/ambient, if you will. We just spoke at normal levels and could be heard clearly. Now, the bar/main room area looked enticing and fun, too, though. I'll go back soon to enjoy that atmosphere. The staff are all friendly and genuine. The cooks are pretty fast, and per the level of dishes and complexity of them, that was surprising. The food was great. Kudos, BP.

    The food was pretty good. They were out of several items, but since they let us know up front it was not a problem. It's not really a place for a romantic evening. It was a little loud near the area where clients were watching TV (football). Other than that, I would recommend the restaurant. The service was nice as well.

    The restaurant was very cold and management said it was because they had a leak and were flooded but I did not see the connection. During our experience they did not have several of the items we requested due to recent inclement weather in the area. I was not impressed with the food how ever my spouse loved his fried shrimp and oysters. I thought the oysters had a petroleum taste. We were in a smaller enclosed area which was quiet however the band was setting up in the main dining area which was very loud. Our waitress was very attentive so was the rest of the wait staff. The ambience was almost institutional bare metal tables and chairs no cloths or booths.
