Enjoyed this place. Very good fried shrimp, sides, and other meals. Was recommended by a friend. You order first and then sit down. Line was a bit long, but food made up for it. Kind of a dive. Not nicest facility but food was good. Rude clientele ... one man walked in front of everyone in line without anyone saying... More

Maybe some people like everything fried and served on disposable plates. If so, this is your place. I couldn't find anything reasonably healthy.

There are two Boiling Pot locations in the Mobile area. This location has much better food than the Airport Blvd location. So we took our friends from Memphis to get a good taste of Mobile food and this was the right place to go. Our party of ten was able to enter, order and sit together without much delay. The... More

I wasn't sure what to expect, but was told by a colleague they had good food. I wasn't expecting much as the four of us walked in. This isn't a sit down and order restaurant like I thought it was. You walk up the counter to order. You are given a number that is called when your food is ready... More

Living in New Orleans I am a bit skeptical of seafood places, but this one did not disappoint. I did not have the boiled seafood, instead opted for the fried oysters. They were nice sized and cooked to perfection. Hushpuppys were also good. Mac and cheese was gross (but i am used to Rocky and Carlos's, so not really fair)... More

I stop here every chance I get. The shrimp/crawfish are very very fresh and seasoned well. They give huge portions, not like the usual 7 shrimp po-boys you get elsewhere. Best Po-boys/fried seafood this side of New Orleans.

We had fried shrimp and crawfish and it was excellent. The gumbo was good, not great, but certainly not bad. Beans were average. It's a no frills place with giant portions.

I purchased a full sized po-boy, and was blown away with the portions. The entire take out box was full with shrimp on and between the two halves of bread. It was amazing. They have the best po-boys hands down.
