When you are in search of good crab-claw cracking seafood, this is a definite! A bit pricey but the food is delicious.

I enjoyed the service and as an outing for my family. The seafood fried rice was delicious, but a small portion for the price. Overall, the food was tasty and we had a wonderful time.

I would strongly recommend revisiting your menu and price combinations. Additionally, a change in seafood vendor as quality was poor.

I thought it was very overpriced and just mediocre. I ordered the seafood fried rice and it was a big mound of rice with 5 cold tasteless mussels around the dish. We asked for bread and they charge us each $2.00 for a piece of bread. Would not go back again.

We have been to the Boiling House several times in the past few months and always had a fantastic experience. This time, it was so-so.

1) The server could have been more attentive than she was.

2) The crabs were cooked okay, but were cold by the time they made it to our table.

3) The clams were overcooked and chewy.

4) A couple was sat next to us after about 15 minutes. Since the restaurant is not asking for proof of vaccine status, they should have been seated further away.

5) The woman at the table next to us decided to "face time" a friend while sitting at the table; laugh and carry on a conversation. This was incredibly rude and obnoxious. Someone from the restaurant should have asked her to take her "face time" call outside as it was distractive to fellow guests.

First and last visit. The food taste like a 12 year old made it at home. We had to visit another restaurant immediately after visiting this place to say we had dinner. I rated this business on google and they responded with a rude comment because they didn’t like the one star. Don’t waste your time, energy, or money on an unprofessional business such as this.
