This place is everything good about a seafood boil experience if your at a restaurant. The food was great, hot, and came out in good time. The server was awesome and attentive to every table in his section even when he got full. This will not be me go-to seafood spot. Well done Boiling House!

Everything was delicious. The vibe was just as awesome. The service was amazing. Loved our waiter who even sang Happy Birthday to me so then then the whole restaurant chimed in. I will definitely be back.

A little over rated. For the price I was expecting it to be exceptional and was let down. The service was great, and the experience was nice. Just wasn’t impressed at all with the food.

Prices are high end for such a low budgeted place. You’ll need a sweater cause it’s cold inside and you won’t be able to hear yourself think because the music is kept blaring. The food is ok. Waitstaff is pleasant but not super attentive.

I’m not sure why it taste different this time, maybe a change in management or kitchen staff. The flavor of the boiling house sauce doesn’t taste as good this time. It was very salty. Also, the mussels were very small compared to previous visit. However, lemonade and garlic noodles are still really good. Service was excellent, he checked in on us multiple times to ensure that we have everything we needed. Boiling house is the only seafood boil (Aside from Hot N Juicy in DC) we go to because that’s how much we used to love this place. But I think it’s time we venture out and try other places.

Love the experience and food there. I travel from Brooklyn 2 hr just to go to this restaurant. The best seafood ever and the store team is more like family. The quality and flavor of the food is impeccable and the price is so reasonable. I came recently to celebrate my birthday the owner made me feel and my family feel so special.
Best place to be with any group setting!! Love you Boiling House!! Wishing you 1000 years of success and prosperity!!

This is one of my favorites we started here the first couple weeks before open gave him some ideas about a sign out in the front he had it on the truck but now it’s a better sign obvious I like the transition of open it up another building make it bigger outside is great again I was there when there was no outside service but this would help keeping the noise level down you may need another TV in the new building overall service was good food was delicious are you have one particular server That was off at the time of my dining I forgot his name but he’s a great server and he has my problem thank you

We went in a Saturday evening. For those that are concerned about social distancing inside....they don't distance tables at all. The music was loud. The food was pretty good. It's a good seafood place. It is really warm inside. I guess if you sit outside it's nicer. I would give it a second chance, but it wasn't the greatest. If you have little kids, bring crayons and they can color on the table paper.

Wonderful restaurant with amazing seafood! I love it here. The food is always, always SO GOOD. I really want to know where they source their seafood because everything is just so big and delicious. The portions they had for their special Mother’s Day menu were perfect for our family of 4. I do wish they offered some of their regular menu items in addition, but I do I understand the cover volume of Mother’s Day. Great food, great service, will DEFINITELY be back again!

Great food! Maybe I missed it, but they def. need to make it clear that the menu is limited for dining in on Mother’s Day. The packages offered were limited and pricy but the food was good!

I took my mom and daughter here for Mother’s Day and they only had a set menu of 4 items ranging from $100-$215 and these were for 4 people. The waiter stated it was on their social media pages and on their website. Interesting to me since I went to their website several times to check out the menu and not once did I see this info. I also called to add an additional person a few days prior and I was not told about a set menu. I used open table to reserve and there was no note from the restaurant that had this info either. We were very disappointed. My daughter and I have been trying to get here for a year and we have no issue paying good money for food. However I’d like to pick the items not be told there are only 4 items to choose from when the website includes a massive menu. We won’t be back and while we were frustrated we drove 50minutes to get there we ended up going elsewhere and had a great meal.

I would suggest getting your bucket without sauce and asking for butter or sauce on the side. the seafood was very good quality but it was drowned in garlic. It’s a fun atmosphere.
