Went to our first fish boil and loved it. I'm not really much of a fish eater but I really enjoyed this. The fish was absolutely delicious. Everything tasted so great. Really a bargain for how much food you get.

The cooking presentation was great even though it was raining. The food was really, really good--fish, potatoes, onions, slaw and cherry pie for dessert. Minimal bar service with only wine and beer available. Price was acceptable (~$22 with tax).
