The Boil Waverly
Very good. The boil special sauce is amazing over rice! So filling
It’s was good she enjoyed it so I’m happy
Frequent place often love it, wife eats slow so it is annoying when we are rushed at times
Hadn't been here in 3 years. Really good experience! Had a good time! Food was delicious and fresh.
Food was amazing! Service was nice. Fun music. Cash only but not a problem!! Great time!
The Waverly location seemed a bit crowded and neither location answered repeated phone calls after 5 pm, even though the voicemail message clearly stated the hours of operation were from 5 pm - midnight. When we arrived, our reservation was easily located and we were sat right away. The menu was robust and, although the server seemed overwhelmed and less charming than I would expect, they did attempt to curb my enthusiasm as I tend to over order. Their recommendations were spot on. We ordered just enough and the food itself was outstanding.
Other than the corn on the cob, which was a little too underdone for my taste, the seasonings and the selections were all well worth the experience. The king crab legs and crawfish were absolutely perfect with enough meat to fully satisfy. The one minor drawback to this restaurant is the cash only policy and closeness of the tables. As the couple next to us cracked open their shellfish, I was accidentally splashed in the face with the sauce from their meal, due to the close proximity of our tables.
The large party to the other side of us was apparently unaware of the cash only policy and made a small scene as no one seemed to have cash on hand to cover the bill, which could not be split. The restaurant does have an ATM available which resolved that party’s issue however, the unruliness of the group was a bit obnoxious and would have put a damper on the evening had it not been for the deliciousness of the food.
In addition to traditional wet naps offered at a seafood restaurant of this nature, The Boil also provides clean fresh pair of surgical/sever style plastic gloves to each patron which offers the opportunity to crack your seafood without needing to dirty your hands/jewelry.
I am a huge gumbo fan, and not entirely a head on shrimp fan however the head on/tail on shrimp was so tasty and fresh And tasty and complimented the entire meal perfectly. Overall, the experience was enjoyable enough that I would return.
It sucks that they don’t take cards..I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to get some stuff to go but couldn’t since I didn’t have extra cash .
I always have a good time at The Boil. It's one of my favorite seafood restaurants. The ambience is great, the staff are friendly and the food is YUMazing..Always leave me more
Would be overall five stars if service was better and they were more flexible with food ordering. For example, corn and potatoes are included with combos or when you order two+ pounds of the same shellfish. When you order one pound of crawfish and one pound of crab, then you are forced to pay a la carte for those sides. That rubbed us the wrong way. Kind of felt like price gouging.
Delicious no nonsense cajun seafood. A little pricey, but hey that's shellfish.
Cash only. Its 2019; there is no reason to be cash only. Given this immediate inconvenience and alienation I would never recommend this place.
The food was great, but we booked a reservation a little too close to close so the staff seemed to be rushing us out.
Terrible experience... First, there was no air conditioning and it was 87F+ outside.. They took my order wrong and tried to charge me for it! Then they spilled a glass of water on me and were more concerned about cleaning off the table as opposed to offering something to wipe my leg which was drenched... It gets worse.... The waitress simply told me "sometimes you have a bad night..." Needless to say I was completely taken aback by her attitude....My sister commented on her rudeness and the waiter actually came in my sister's face in a very aggressive, threatening manner. So sad to say, I will not be going back! I've been to this location several times and have never had this type of experience or any place else for that matter... Save your money and go somewhere else. The fact that they now have security in the restaurant says alot about this establishment!
the front door lady, is rude af. she’s always rude and unwelcoming. she turned away many tables even told a few they couldn’t get food at the bar (yes they can) and there were even seats available. food was amazing as always, just get a new hostess
Family took me out here for my birthday. I must say this was by far one of my favorite seafood joint. Love the fresh seafood, they are very fast. It’s all cash. It gets pretty busy fast so reservation is probably your best option. Drinks are great the services are warm and welcoming. Jada our server was absolutely nice and gave some recommendations.
Food is always bomb!!! Never disappointed ! The atmosphere is great
Excellent customer service, great drinks and the food is amazing... I definitely recommend the hurricane drinks!!!
Good food and prices. Be sure to bring cash they don’t take cards.
Fabulous, delicious. I'm still gracing more.
Probably going back nextcweek.
Food was really amazing, great service. A bit on the pricey side but the food is well worth it. My only downside was the music. I don't really care to hear rap music in the background while indulging myself with food. I'd just wish they played more tone downed music that complimented the atmosphere. It's not that I don't appreciate or like rap music. It's just not the place for it. Especially when I'm eating, not my cup of tea. Change the music to something more appropriate.
Loved it! Went for my husband’s birthday, and it is definitely a great bday celebration spot. It’s so charming to sit and have a NOLA-style boil in nyc. The shrimp are so good, and we got them with all the sauces. Would definitely recommend.
We were sweating like crazy. No AC.
The server completely ignored us & we had to ask any employee that walked by for water refills, seafood crackers for our crab, more cocktails, ketchup for our fries. :(
Best seafood ANYWHERE. Already planing my next trip back.
Everything was great from start to finish. I'm not too crazy about their cash only policy though.
First time at location, and arrived earlier than reservation time. Sat at the bar until table was ready, nice selection of cocktails. Table was prepared and the food and service was great.
The food was great, they give u a lot for the money. Services was great, workers are friendly and attentive. Over all if u love seafood like I do go there.
If you are a seafood lover you MUST go to the BOIL! 1lb of king crab legs is more than enough!!! The Boil sauce, which is all of the offered sauces combined, is to die for!!! Cash only!!! So prepare for that!!
Great Food and Drink. Customer Service was great and fast with my food. I will definitely recommend the Boil to family and friends.
I love this place, great for spicy Cajun food. Definitely one of my favourite places to go to. They just added a crab & crawfish combo so it's a great option :)
Came for my graduation and I enjoyed every bit of it! Thank you very much
We go here very often, but on our most recent visit the shrimp was inedibly salty. The waitress did not offer to take it back. They lost a long time regular. We won't be going back.
We had booked a table for two. It arrived as a three and they got us a new table pretty much straight away. Food was so delicious and very reasonable for the quality. Can’t wait to go back
The delicious food, friendly and attentive waiters, and the fun vibe keep us coming back. Love The Boil!
Such fun experience!
Food was good but the service was a little disappointing.
everything we ordered was perfect. In fact it is perfect every time we go.
This was my 35th time
Best crab legs And calamari I’ve ever had.
