Modeled after Las Vegas' Oyster Bar, dishes are prepared in cooking kettles at a U-shaped counter in front of you. Sauces are made daily by scratch so that spices can be tailored to your specific liking. High-pressured steam is pushed through pipes onto your dish at 280-307 degrees so it simmers evenly and without the chance of overcooking.The Boiler is currently the only Cajun/Creole restaurant in the Inland Valley, which opened in 2009. It is the destination on the horizon at The Commons mall in Chino Hills.

The service wasn't great. I wasn't a fan of the House Pan Roast. It was chalky and too spicy. Haven't been back.

Absolutely the finest ever at the Boiler!!! Five stars does not due the meal (fisherman's Chowder) justice. We have been dinning here since their opening and this blew away all other meals; and we have had some good ones. Adrian (chef) was magnificent. The place was crowded and it seemed as though everyone was as enthusiastic as my son and... More

Had a nice intimate visit with my husband. Service was excellent and personalized but food was better. Sauces are flavorful but heavy and you cannot finish your meal. We would go back in a heartbeat as no crowds and quiet atmosphere. Can also sit at bar and converse with the chef as you watch him prepare your food and have... More

This is one of the best meals I have ever had! My husband and I both ordered the House Pan Roast. This is a tomato cream based sauce with trinity shrimp, crab, lobster, and clams, and is served with jasmine rice. You choose the spice level of the sauce by choosing a level from 1-10' with the higher the number,... More

It really isn't all that bad, but not great. The problem I have is with the taste as it has been generally under seasoned and lacks a salt component. I understand salt can be overwhelming if over done, however, theirs is under seasoned (particularly the pan roast) and they offer no table seasoning at all. It is an interesting place... More

I don't know how many times we've been here. We take our friends here, too. We always have the House Pan! Never can go wrong with it. It has all the seafood. My fave are the lobster chunks, so sometimes I'll just get Lobster Pan Roast. Go early to get a table. All the appetizers are good, too. Enjoy!

This is a great place to eat with great food. It gets crowded and they only have so many seats and pots so timing is everything. A little pricey but a must try!

Have eaten here before and had good experiences. After eating there a couple days ago and spending 24 hours with vomiting and diarrhea, I am wondering if the mussels in my cioppino were bad. There were several unopened mussels in my bowl and I asked the cook, Chris, if they were safe to eat. After assurances from Chris that they... More

We were brought here by family while visiting So Cal. They prepare their food in a unique cooking style that you can see in my photos. It is essentially different types of soups that is served over either rice or pasta. I had the New England clam chowder based dish over pasta and it was great. Give it a shot... More
