Introduced a friend to this place - he loved the food and the prices. Will not be the last time you will see him as he said his wife will enjoy the food too!

The service was very friendly and very attentive. Food was good. A little on the expensive side but will come back again.

Service was prompt and friendly from the very start and when my partner knocked his drink over, the staff literally ran over in 2 seconds to make sure any spillage was minimal! Service was very attentive but never overbearing - my partner's cup was always...refilled. Cant say more about the food - fresh, generous, and delicious.More

This is a great place for those who love seafood and the novelty of eating off a bag is still there. Over the years, many have come and go but this place remains. Tells a lot about the quality of food and service.

Service was absolutely poor. We booked via chope for 6pm slot and made two bookings due to the limitation on no. of pax per booking (5pax) as we had 6+1pax. When we got there, the staff rolled her eyes at us multiple times claiming there’s...only one booking of 2+1pax. Despite asking her politely if she needs the email confirmations we received from chope for our 2 bookings, she insisted there’s only one (rolling her eyes again). Not sure what warrants that multiple eye roll when we are speaking politely but please look up to bridge the gap between chope & the restaurant since they couldn’t locate the other booking.More

The combinations of the combos are generally similar. The seafoods are all quite fresh with most combos consist of a crab, some prawns, sliced sausages, clams, mussels and corns in the mix. My family's experience was mixed but all agreed that the Dungeness Crab and...Prawns were good and well cooked however the supporting sides in the bag like the sliced sausages was we felt were average, some of the clams are not thoroughly clean and still have sands in them, corns were nice but there are too little pieces. I gave the score to the sauces, the house special 'Work' sauce and the garlic sauce were were quite good, we spent about $550 in all and we think its a little pricy for the quality. Hope Boiler improves on their menu and we will definitely be back for more crabs!More

For that price point, seafood should at least be fresh. That wasn’t the case. Difficult to get servers attention, everyone was occupied with themselves behind the bar counter. Dessert was forgotten until I asked about it when I was paying at the counter so I...could only takeaway. I had even indicated that it’s a birthday celebration and for them to put a candle on the dessert! Atmosphere was solemn since everyone was clearly solemn and dull.More

Tried for lunch, and it was always brilliant. Every time a favourite. Didn't do normal bag of seafood but did some salad and crab cakes. Another new favourite.

The wild sauce is ordinary but the ingredient is fresh. Would not come back again because it was average.
