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 have always found the name of this place a little strange. Yes they do have some steamed seafood offerings, but they really know how to fry fish, oysters, shrimp.

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

Read the Trip Advisor reviews and decided to go since it was right around the corner. At first glance I thought $10 for a small shrimp po boy and $19 for a large and $7 for a kids chicken meal. I was thinking they are really proud of thier food. I'm glad I was wrong. The kids chicken tender meal... More

Located in a strip mall, nothing fancy but reasonably priced and generous portions. You order from the counter. The night we were there the area you clear your plates to was overflowing and needed some attention. If you are in the mood for tasty seafood and not a dining "experience" then check out the Boiling Pot.

Excellent food and served fresh and hot. Counter service with plenty of seating. I though the value was good with generouse portions. Not really a fancy place food comes out in baskets and you bus the tables yourself.

I hit this spot every time I am in Mobile. The portions on the large plates will more than satisfy anyone and I have yet to have anything that was not good. Try the Fried crab claws. The only thing I would like to see added are combo plate options. Let me choose two or three items.

Thank Russell G
