Wow! Boiled crawfish were done to perfection and the “boiled shrimp” Poboy was a first for me. Great service and even better food. It’s a must do every time we hit highway 90.

While in New Iberia for the weekend we decided to eat. We had ate at their old location over 15 years ago and were excited to go back. Food was as good as we remembered. The fried alligator was delicious, and the shrimp was also...good. If we are there in another 15 years we will definitely go back!More

I was in town from PA for a mine rescue contest and this is where the local miners sent me for the best seafood. On another trip to New Orleans, my wife and I drove two hours out of our way to eat here. I'll...be back.More

Our entrees were served before our appetizers, and then the side dishes were served long after that. Need I say more? .... To further explain: We ordered 2 cups of bisque as an appetizer, boiled crawfish for 1 dinner, and boiled shrimp as the other...entree, boiled potatoes & onion rings as our sides. Within approx. 4 minutes the crawfish were served (a mistake from a previous order that was sitting in the back perhaps?) A few minutes later the shrimp were served. We asked about our bisque appetizers and the waitress just blew us off, saying it’s being made. ... And then another waitress took over, shift change. Again we asked about the soups, and asked about our missing side dishes. She at least was pleasant and checked for us. Eventually everything got served. There SEEMS TO BE NO CLUE IN THE KITCHEN ABOUT TIMING. ...... I will say the food is good. Just clueless service it seems. ..... There are many other quality restaurants in the New Iberia area.More

Traveling back from the Mardi Gras Parades in Thibodeaux,my family and I made a Sunday Night stop at the BoilingPoint for supper. Immediately upon entering the place we were greeted and seated. Drink and Appetizer order was taken as we browsed the menu to decide...on the entree. My husband I ordered side salads with our entrees....Seafood Platter and Fried Catfish Dinner. Our son ordered from the Kids menu.Grilled Cheese Sandwich with fries. These entrees did not take long to arrive at our table. All of our entrees were delicious and plentiful. We had to get a To Go box. Our son opted for dessert...Chocolate Cake as he had eaten all his supper. The slice of cake was huge and our son had to get a To Go box as well. Wonderful place...Friendlly Family atmosphere and Fantastic Food!! Highly RecommendMore

This roadside restaurant is a bit of a drive out of New Iberia proper, but well worth seeking out. If fresh crawfish, oysters, shrimp, or crabs--either boiled for fried--are on your list, this is a place to not miss. We were waited on by a...very patient waitress, and the food came quickly. If you've come from the north, you may find yourself the only out-of-towner there.More

Nothing fancy at all about this place. It is clean and has the best boiled seafood. The boiled shrimp was huge. The boiled crawfish and crabs were done to perfection. Also try the bloody mary which comes with a softshell crab and is a meal...in itself.More

The boiling point is by far the Best place to get hot fresh seafood. Crawfish season is beyond the best time of year to go but really its always amaze balls. Their seafood is always cooked to perfection. There's not one dish I wouldn't recommend....Dont believe me?? Bet!! Go try for yourself your pallet and belly will thank you!!More

We were visiting family and friends in the area and going to a festival in Lafayette. While in Lafayette we decided to meet friends at the Boiling Point. We've been visiting the Boiling Point for decades. We lived in New Iberia in the early 1980's...and visit frequently. Between the four of us, we had boiled crabs, boiled shrimp, corn, potatoes, sausage, and fried shrimp. All of it was out of this world. They really hit it out of the park. Service is very good, atmosphere is pure Cajun. We'll be back again and again!! Highly recommended.More
