Boil Seafood House
The restaurant was really busy and they really nice because they held our reservation even though we were a few minutes past the 10 minute maximum hold time. The food was really good and the waitress was super friendly
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.
Whenever I am in town, this is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is always great with the right amount of spice and heat.
For the price the food wasn’t worth it, service was mediocre at best. Be prepared to ask to thinks like silverware
Perfect place to taste local food. Good service…………
Our waiter was absolutely amazing! However, hostess was a little rude. We giggled at him and it didn’t bother us, but jeez, he could have used a chill pill to some of the people who walked in lol
Service was AMAZING! Food was AMAZING! Would recommend this place to anyone.
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!
This food was so good it was mind blowing. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and seasoned to say it was delicious is not even fair. It was incredible.
Highly recommend the taste of New Orleans boil. It was incredible. Get the boil special sauce that is all the sauces combined. Get a side of bread to dip in your extra sauce
Dining here was very delightful but it would be nice to add a mix n match menu. The waitress was amazing and attended to our every need. Will be back
Food was soooo good.
Wonderful food. Great ambiance.
Sad that tourists think this is real New Orleans food. Terrible food, ok service. Dirty restaurant.
We had the best waiter ever. Never asked for her name but it was a white girl with blueish gray eyes on the second level. Food was amazing
Amazing! Food was incredible, service 100% and fun yet cozy environment. Our favorite restaurant in New Orleans 👏🏼
Everything was great! My boyfriend and I love the staff and the environment that BOIL house has!
Ceiling had leaks over table
Management needs to fix this issue
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.
I will make a point to return to this restaurant when I am in New Orleans again. Loved the food, best boil I have ever had!
Amazing platters here. Everything is so flavorful.
Good was good. Our server Jojo was excellent. Very small restaurant. Make sure to make a reservation if you don’t want to wait.
We made a reservation at 8:30 and watched as the hostess sat walk-ins for 10 minutes before us. We finally got sat and we waited for a waitress to bring us water or even tell us that they would be with us in a minute. No one came. After 30 minutes of just sitting there we left. The staff was unkempt, and running around with too much urgency for the level of people that were in the place. There was waitstaff standing at the bar and the hostess running around acting like an ER doctor running into surgery. It was one of the worst experiences in a restaurant.
Had the Shack boil. It was great. The boils house salad was very nice too.
Waiter was ok.
Table was wobbly.
Food and service both were really good. I would definitely go again. I would recommend making a reservation if possible to shorten or eliminate the wait time.
Appetizers came out with dinner and were cold. Waiter took apps to have redone and manager came over and said they don't recook anything and nothing she could do. Then came back and said she got approval to take off our bill. Not a good experience. So many better places in New Orleans that we ate at!
We had a great time! Everything was wonderful. We were even sat earlier than our reservation time. Food was amazing.
Make sure that you make a reservation for this restaurant, I can see why it fills up fast! The food is really delicious!
The food was fantastic! The flavors, the quality were more than we expected! The service exceptional. Not only will I recommend. I will go back, when in Nola!
The hostess southern hospitality was non existent she was horrible she didn’t even want to sit us she argue. with us just straight rude and we were from out of town! Our reservation was for 930 she told us the kitchen closed at 930 come to find out the kitchen closed at 945 and she was rude to us. The food and drink was good. The waiter must have had his head in the clouds he was a bit clueless and not helpful. I will find a better place next time.
We got a little of everything and were so glad that we did. Laidback atmosphere and simple but delicious seafood. Make sure to get The Feast.
Excellent spot to get a seafood boil. Very reasonable! Our server Felix was so nice, even showed us how to properly peel crawfish.
Food and service with our waiter, JoJo were absolutely phenomenal! A must visit for a tasty Vietnamese Creole seafood fusion.
Use to be my favorite restaurant but yesterday I spent $400 on my family of six to have to eat crab legs and lobster with no crab crackers. Management should mention that when we’re ordering. Complained until finally, when we were done they brought us one pair of crackers. Terrible idea to serve food for which you cannot eat without the proper utensils.
We were delighted with our Crayfish, Shrimp and Crab boil. Everything was delicious -
The service was excellent and the lobster and shrimp out of this world.
So good !! Definitely recommend
Staff was wonderful. Food was great!
