The food at the boiling house is very good. Although it is a seafood restaurant, the wings and fries are amazing as well

The food was killer! Ambiance was a little lacking and music was super loud, but if you don’t mind a hoppin atmosphere then this place is great for you.

My fiancé and I visited here about 7x this year alone!! Staff is always professional!! Food is very good! A bit on the pricey side but I guess that what the market price is for seafood. We always sat outdoors but the last two times it was raining and ate in doors! Overall, we love it and will be back next week!!

We went to The boiling house for lunch my moms birthday. The weather was unseasonably warm so we were able to eat outside. The food was excellent! We really enjoyed it! The tables were spread apart so we weren’t close to anyone else. Great experience! Will definitely be going back

We had an amazing night weatherwise and were able to eat outside. The wait staff was intentive, and the food came out very quick. This was our first experience there and it was beyond our expectations.

Had an amazing meal and our server Shelby was great! She did everything they could to make us comfortable with an extra heater near our table and plenty of ice buckets for BYOB so we could sit outside on a beautiful fall night. The seafood festival fed 4 grown hungry adults easily and the tables are perfectly spaced for Covid precautions. The night was prefect.

The service and food were great ordered the crab and mussels along with the seafood fried rice. All of that was enough to share between two people. The value of the food was great along with the portion sizes.

The food was good. The customer service was horrible. We were a party of 8. One of the orders was wrong. I mentioned to one of the waiters, he said no problem we will send you the right order. They come back with the it, but they charged us for both things. Talked to the waiter and appearantly he spoke to the manager and didn’t care that he messed up the order and billed me twice. After I paid 350 for our Dinner with mandatory tip, I will obsoletely not go back. I guess the 26 dollars was worth loosing a customer. I wouldn’t recommend to go there. I have been a waitress, and to get the order wrong and somehow bill you for two entrees even though one was my mistake is horrible. Shame on the server and the restaurant manager. This was our second time there and we easily dropped 500 dollars, but I’ll never be back!

First time to dine at this seafood restaurant. Its pricey.... food portion is too small, like the chicken tenders with fries, for $12 its not worth the price. But what we love the most is their Seafood fried rice!

The experience was actually pretty good. It was my first time there so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The outside seating was sufficiently spaced from other tables to feel comfortable. The food was pretty good and moderately priced. The restaurant is BYOB so note that. We didn’t realize that but found a wine and spirits store about 1.5miles up route 70 so we were cool! Really good find. I will be going again.

I gave service 4 stars because we had multiple servers walk past us and said nothing. We had to ask if someone would be helping us. Otherwise than that, once we sat at a table, the food was delicious and the waiter was attentive.
