The service was very good and the food was outstanding! The quality and flavor of the seafood was simply out of this world. I can’t wait to travel back to New York and eat here again!

the host was rude, not friendly at all...... however the waitress and guy who cleans the table and brought out the food were really nice. i ordered the king crab legs which didn't come with any corn or potatoes for $45 i thought that was a little excessive. other then that it was ok.

The boil at this location was just okay. I was not expecting the 20% gratitude fee which never happen at the other location by LES. The food was mediocre at best. I went with three other people and it was disappointing. The taste is different and not the same anymore. I do not think I will be returning anymore.

The Boil Waverly was good. The crab legs were good. Could be a little cheaper but overall it was great

the fried food was overly doughy. Crab cake was OK. Lobster roll was OK Don't understand the appeal of this place.

Food was great as always. I just don’t like how the main course is served 5 mins after they bring the appetizer. I was even specific with the server to not bring the main course right after the appetizer. When it came, she didn’t look at me. She ignored our table completely.

I came here to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. She chose the location since it was her treat. I’m not really a fan of these chains since There are a lot of boils now that offer a lot more for less &$. However, I would recommend this location rather than the Chrystie location since it’s much bigger in space if I had to choose btw these locations.

Good food and service. Definitely a get your hands dirty kind of meal. A bit expensive for what it is. We were seated near the bar and the bathroom and it smelled of cleaning fluids. The smell came and went, we able to enjoy dinner without noticing too much.

First time here . The boil was our back up as we missed Claw daddy before they closed for dinner service. The Boil does NOT compare to Claw Daddy at All.. The sauce was very watery and had no flavor at all this is not New Orleans seasoning. The Garlic toast was bland not toasted only melted butter. I took half my food home to doctor it up to make it more flavorful. I got the Boil seasoning which is All the seasonings combined. Tasted like water and garlic. Lots of garlic.. I won't return I will stick with Claw Daddy much more flavorful..

I love this place! I bring friends regularly. We celebrate family birthdays her. I always recommend it to folks who love seafood. As my 21-years old granddaughter says "I could bathe in the sauce"

We felt like we were in Louisiana. The seafood was so fresh. We had a late night reservation so we didn't eat very heavy, but plan to return. The unique beer selections paired perfectly.
I would definitely recommend this spot for those who love to peel and eat crabs, shrimp, crawfish. The fried catfish and crab cakes were delicious and came with Cajun fries and a mixed cabbages cole slaw. It was great!
