The food and service were amazing! I liked that they brought the food out as it was done and didn’t wait until all food was done to bring it all out.

Terrible. Don’t waste your time or money. The website is great marketing but the crab legs are soggy and have zero flavor. Calamari was crunchy tough and way over cooked. I could go on but I won’t. I’m blown away how bad it was. You’re much better off at Red Lobster.

The waitress forgot to comp?are the entry of our !real requests. As a result, our meals to longer to arrive at our table. She did acknowledge the mistake to us and give a percentage off the bill to co.pens ate for the error.

Food was very flavorful and service was outstanding. They have expanded their dinning room. We didn't like the decor through. Kinda reminds me of The Seafood Shanty or Red Lobster when they first started out. But the food is the star.

Food was delicious, service was great, ambiance outside was lovely. I’m glad we opted for al fresco dining versus inside, as the volume inside seemed a bit much.

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!

We love the food here! It never disappoints and is pretty appropriately priced for seafood. The only complaint would be they were out of 3 things we asked for on the last visit, but it was still amazing and we will go again

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
