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!

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

Boil seafood house was incredible! We even went back twice. The servers were very attentive and the price for crawfish was great. Will definitely be back next time we’re in New Orleans

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.

Chargrilled oysters were to die for! The shack is very reasonable, alligator bites and calamari were very good as well.

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.

AMAZING FOOD! PERIOD!
We're amateurs when it comes to seafood boil. We had to ask for some directions on how to eat a crab. Our servers was very welcoming, helpful and non-judgmental whatsoever when we asked. We didn't feel out of place, and dived into our platter like animals. We made a mess and could not have enjoyed the experience more!

Please allow me to begin by saying that I appreciate the restaurant being open during these difficult times. Secondly, our server was excellent, what I am about to say about the food quality is in no way a reflection on the server. I have lived and worked in New Orleans my entire life, as such I have enjoyed delicious food. This is not New Orleans style seafood, for example, I ordered something called Gumbo, as a native that comes with certain expectations. What I received would best be described as a clam stew, it was ok but it was not gumbo. This is just one example, there are others, but I don't feel the need to go on. Perhaps tourists won't know the difference, but to a native this was disappointingly unauthentic.
