The Boiling Pot - Old City
The Boiling Pot Sauce, Garlic Butter, Lemon Pepper, Cajun, or Old Bay. Come in today and explore the goodies under the sea!
Out of blue crab, dregs of King crab, out of only dessert on the menu. Had to get up & ask for everything we wanted.... Meh.
Food was good, but the service was horrible!
Wonderful seafood assortment prepares beautifully. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and evening! Already have recommended this place to friends!
The boiling pot was a great spot located in the heart of old city. Very convenient to transportion via uber, train or bus.
I love the fact it was BYOB and I found a great wine spot a block away. Food was excellent if you are a seafood lover. I received excellent service from a very special server named Darius. From the moment I walk in greeting us and every guest with a genuine smile to helping out my server who was extremely busy. Even when he wasn’t our server he went above and beyond his duty: open our wine bottle to the whole dining experience. I was saddened he wasn’t our permanent server. I want to let the owner and others know if you come to the Boiling Pot there is great food and service from Darius who needs to be commended with 10 plus rating.
I was very disappointed with my experience here. The sauce was too oily, had a bad smell and after taste as though it was on the verge of going bad. wanted to have a good time with friends but we were not impressed. We had to walk couple blocks to get drinks afterward.
Awesome food great location great staff thanks for an awesome time
Very fun meal! Changes the usual restaurant standard! The most fun I’ve ever had eating a meal
The Food was superb and the service was beyond outstanding. We ordered the SeaLover which included Garlic Noodles as well as an appetizer of choice. The noodles were seasoned and sautéed to absolute perfection, and choosing the bang bang shrimp tacos as our second starter was probably the best decision I’ve made in a while lol. And After tasting the main course which came with 2 types of crab clusters, crawfish and shrimp , I vowed to be back at-least once a month. Friendly and relaxing ambiance. Loved the music too !
Everything was good. They need a liquor license though
Amazing new joint with amazing food. So many selections and so well prepared.
The service was horrible. We ordered appetizers which didn’t come out until after 2 of the 3 entree’s had arrived. The 3rd entree never arrived until we were almost finished eating so our other companion had to watch us eat! We asked many times for the entree along with the corn and fries that also were delivered to our table strangely. And the corn was ice cold as well! The waitress just didn’t care about her job or make our first experience at The Boiling Pot a pleasant one!
The food was great. We had the build your own boil and it was amazing. Truly a great anniversary night with my wife.
It was okay. This business is new so they still have a few kinks to work out. I wish someone would have informed us BEFORE we arrived that this place doesn’t have their liquor license yet so for now they are operating like a BYOB. Also they don’t do free refills on soda, which I thought was weird. The place has potential for sure but as of now it’s just okay.
Our waiter was OUTSTANDING!!! The food also OUTSTANDING with a great price!!
Four of us enjoyed the ultimate boil! We left feeling satisfied from a delicious(LARGE!!) Bowl of seafood ,lobster, clusters of king and snow crab, shrimp ,andoullie sausage. The place has only just opened for business it wasn't crowded at all. Will be going back soon.
We ordered a make your own pot with lobster, shrimp and crab. It was delicious, very fresh and perfectly cooked. The ambiance was really chic and fun. our server was John and he was awesome. Would go back again just for him!
Outstanding venue for seafood lovers!!! However, bring your own bottle as long alcohol license isn’t granted.
Still waiting for their liquor license
Amazing flavor! Really enjoyed our experience. Recommended.
I’ve already recommended this place to my Instagram friends! Food was good! My crawfish was over done/rubbery but the rest of my pot was amazing. The Boiling sauce (medium heat level) was also good! This place is also BYOB and has outside deck seating! Great vibes and music. Parking is an issue in the area so you may want to Uber down! All in all I’ve recommend over and over!
I had the BEST experience here! The owner was VERY nice and friendly. The food was incredible, which I knew it would be since I’ve been to their first location the boiling house in cherry hill. The atmosphere was so welcoming very beautiful inside, very unique.
Beautiful seafood restaurant in the heart of Philadelphia!!! Just what old city needed! Amazing atmosphere inside and they are the only place in philly with an amazing wrap around balcony! Perfect for date night! The food was to die for. This will be the next hit spot in Philadelphia! Get in there before the line wraps around the door!!!!
