The waitress was inattentive. We had to call her over every time we needed something instead of her checking on the table. All of our appetizers arrived AFTER our main courses. It sad how service declines when gratuity is included. She did not deserve the $75 tip that was included in the bill. We had to order more drinks from another waitress because our waitress was no where to be found. This was the worse service I have ever received at the Boil!

Love it! Food is excellent! Great place to eat! Fantastic and fast service.
Note they don't take credit cards! IT'S CASH ONLY! They also DON'T serve dessert on FRIDAY & SAT NIGHT! I understand they want to turn the tables as fast as possible but it's a little funny for a restaurant these days.

Finally got a chance to go with my husband for his birthday after hearing about this place 2 - 3 years ago. They did not disappoint!! Our server Jen was amazing, attentive, so sweet. Heard her offer to roll up a customers sleeve as he ate! I don’t remember seeing one staff member without a smile on their face! And their signature sauce is amazing!! We will definitely be back!!

The crab legs with garlic butter & old bay seasoning was AMAZING. The staff was very friendly & accommodating. I would recommend you make reservations, which was a great choice. We didn't have to wait, they were already waiting to seat my party. You won't be disappointed with The Boil.

Food was good but the location on Chrystie is much better. If you visit both locations you will notice the difference in the sauce and how it’s prepared. Either way it’s great but the Chrystie location in my opinion has better cooks.

The food was good, although keep in mind that it's cash only. There is an ATM in the front of the restaurant. The service felt a little rushed sometimes, and it was a bit uncomfortable having the wait staff tie the bib around our necks. Other than that, I would recommend the Boil if you like seafood!

We arrived 15 minutes late due to train delays and after checking in were told to wait while patrons who did not have reservations were seated. Ten minutes late I checked the reservation to find that it was then cancelled and the host never noted that we arrived.
The waitress brought me the wrong drink (which was definitely needed at this point) and proceeded to call me "honey".
Not a fan of the vibe or energy after a hard days work, this experience only added insult to injury.

We had a 7:30 reservation and despite arriving 30 minutes early, we were seated immediately. If you are coming here to eat crab, you will not be disappointed. Tie on your bib, put on your gloves and dig in. Can’t wait to go back!

While I appreciate the food came fast within 15 minute the quality of taste was subpar which is unusual. I’ve come over 10 times and this is the first time I was disappointed in the flavoring

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.

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.
