Ate here the first time with a customer who eats here regularly. I had the fried seafood platter with oysters, shrimp and catfish. Sides of slaw and gumbo. All very good. My customer had a Cajun cheeseburger which he loves. This is a fast casual place that I would be happy to return to.

I didn't even know this place existed and just happened to see it so figured I would give it a shot. It's a pretty big place. You stand in line, order and pick up the food when your # is called. The dining area has about 10 or 12 televisions. Side note: I found it amusing that one TV was... More

Through the years, we've eaten at Boiling Pot many times. It finally got where the prices were too high for the reduced amount of food, for the lesser quality. After several times, we decided to give it another try. 3/29 we went for dinner and ordered 1) Gumbo 2) Royal Red Shrimp 3) Fried shrimp. Everything was great. The Royal... More

We were in town on business and planned to go to another seafood restaurant close by but saw this and the hubby had been wanting some crawfish, so we changed our plans! It was an excellent find and the crawfish were seasoned JUST RIGHT!

I have eaten here many times and I have never been disappointed. The prices may seem high, but the amount of food you get is enough for 2 meals or more.

If you like seafood - OMGoodness you must go here. This place is big enough for small gatherings and quaint enough for a business lunch. Great food and great portions at a very reasonable price!!! You have got to go!!!!!

I've tried many seafood restaurants and was not satisfied with any of them. One of my friends suggested the Boiling Pot. I say it's the best restaurant in town. I ordered the southern Bama, which was fried grits with grilled shrimp and sauce. It was amazing. Service was #1 and will come back.

Great seafood with lots of options to choose from. I really like the updated menu and the remodeled of the restaurant interior. Staffs are great and attentive. Finally they are selling alcohol. Great beer selections
