Seafood

Seafood boils are a tradition in Louisiana, and we’re adding to this flavorful part of our culture with our restaurant in NOLA’s Garden District. Hieu, the man who started BOIL Seafood House, grew up fishing for shrimp and crawfish, and he’s eager to share his passion for cooking up fresh catches. At our restaurant, you start by picking your seafood, your flavor, and then choosing your heat level. Then you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy your meal with everyone else who’s gathered around the table. It’s just like a backyard boil except for the fact that the food, cocktails, and craft beer never end. Bring your friends. Bring your appetites. It’s time to eat!

    Food was outstanding! Too much, though….would’ve been great if the waitress would’ve suggested we split a basket. Sat upstairs…wicked loud, to the point you can’t hear yourself think, let alone hear spoken words. Still appreciate the experience of my first seafood boil!

    The food is always great at this location n usually the service is too which is why we don’t go to the mid city one. This time we were sat upstairs right under a vent that was dripping condensation and when asked to be moved were moved under another one that instead of dripping on my brother was now dripping on the table. There was an empty table downstairs with no vent on top of it and was told by the lady manager she had a reservation, even though we were a reservation. Needless to say, we took our hungry stomachs and money elsewhere

    Delicious old time seafood boil!!! Just like Granny’s... she’d throw everything into the pot timely & would serve with that secret ingredient that no one could pinpoint. At the end of the meal smiles on our face & a tummy full of good food!

    1) disappointed charbroiled blue crab no longer available; 2) could use improvement in wine selection, although the chardonnay in can was acceptable with spicy crawfish; 3) kudo's to staff for moving the obnoxiously loud table of toddlers outside onto the balcony; 4) we all could have sworn that the "moderate" heat crawfish in garlic butter sauce actually was "high" heat level; it was funny watching the sweat pouring out of my friend from out of state.

    Seated outdoors with a reservation, told that it was the only table available (several empty tables inside seen). No fans outside, was hot even late in the evening. Blue crabs absolutely terrible and overcooked. The little bit of meat inside was complete mush. Shrimp was also overcooked and tough. Everything is largely overpriced, for the amount of money we spent the quality of the food should have been WAY better. Only thing good was the Dungeness crabs, not worth paying $45 for One part of a crab though.

    Seafood was cold when brought out to us. The lobster was still bleeding on the inside. Oysters had a big chunk of green slimey stuff in it as if they were old and no good. Also half of the oysters was burnt. The server did replace our lobster for some crab legs, but kept making her business to tell us that’s how the lobsters suppose to look which was a lie I ordered “the feast” several times and never was the lobster still bleeding on the inside. Overall it was a horrible experience. It was my husband first time going and my 3rd or 4th time going and it was horrible for his first time.

    Food was tasty. Service was a little slow. My main issue is that they don't have the proper utensils to make the meal work smoothly. Tough to find shell crackers for the lobster and crab leg forks for the crab legs. Hand peeling the shrimp and crawfish was easy because they were cooked well. At their price point, they need proper, and maybe even wacky, utensils in order to really dig in.

    Unpretentious atmosphere, welcoming staff, great service and yummy crawfish that are real Cajun approved! We went with four adults and my two kiddos (3 and 6 years old) and they were very accommodating! Prices were a little high for what you get for the fresh boiled stuff, but we didn't mind paying because it was delicious and we had a great time. I'd totally recommend this place!

    We overall had a pretty good experience but out biggest issue is that we sat under a ac vent which constantly leaked water on us and our table the entire time of the meal. We had to constantly keep wiping up the water off the table and us. We could not move to another table as the restaurant was pretty full and we had a party of 6.
