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!

I made 9:30 reservations to checkout this restaurant while visiting from out of town. I arrived at exactly 9:31pm, and was greeted by the hostess with “We won’t be able to seat you because your reservation was for 9:30, but you can sit at the bar if you like, but the kitchen closes in 5 minutes”. I was taken aback by the poor customer service, and quickly asked some probing questions to understand why the business allowed me to schedule a reservation at that time knowing this information. She quickly shifted gears and withdrew her initial positioning statement, and seated us at a table for service. The waiter that was assigned to us was extremely pleasant and was able to make us feel comfortable and assured us we will be able to eat and enjoy our experience. The food was good, but I will never eat here or recommend this restaurant to any of my friends or colleagues.

My husband and I went for his birthday lunch. We enjoyed their outside area. I like to eat and people watch, people were excited so it was fun to watch. We had The Feast, cajun style and it was Great! The food tastes great. Our server was very nice and attentive.. I had the mango margarita and it was good pretty tasty as well.

The service was absolutely amazing! Super friendly attentive and helpful. Food was sooo good. We ordered voodoo rice which had cheese on top, the jumbo also really good but was over shadowed by the rice, and crab legs in the boil house sauce; even mild they are a little spicy but very tasty. They serve the legs with bread so you can slurp up the sauce. We thought it wasn’t necessary but it was! We were so happy with this place and plan to come back next time we’re in town.

The food was great I was there for a wedding and I wanted some seafood and I look at every seafood place to eat seafood and boil house just caught my eye. The season they use was good as hell I'm from Florida and it tasted way different than what I'm used to eating in Florida

This was the best place we dined in New Orleans! I’ve tasted seafood boils before but none of them come close to the flavors we enjoyed during our dining experience at the Boil Seafood House. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Overly seasoned and not hot when it came out. I feel like the food was a little over priced for the portion we received. The waitress was very friendly and took care of our ever need

Dive kind of place. Waiter was super nice. But they were out of king and blue crab which is why we went there. Learned our lesson to call ahead to see if they are out of stuff. Pretty expensive. At least $$$ if not $$$$.

Food was great. Prices were reasonable. Boil house seasoning might be too heavy on the salt. Cocktail choices could be better - a lot of sweet options.

They cancelled our reservation without our knowledge. We are from across the country and we’re here on vacation. Still had to wait 20 min to be seated. They were also out of crawfish, which was one of the reasons we came. We subbed it for blue crab which gave us very little meat for the weight of the mea.
