Our family was looking for some good Cajun food tonight and found it at The boiling Pots. Fresh large shrimp and crab in Cajun boiling bags. Bibs and gloves provided to dig in. We will be back.

I ate at this restaurant in June 2017, with a party of 10 (5 adults and 5 kids, ages 3-12), to celebrate my nephews birthday. What a terrible experience we had. Decor is minimal and uninteresting. Basically, a "cheap eats" setting without the cheap eats....More

I have been to a few of this type of seafood places that serve seafood like this and this is by far one of the best seasonings for the bag style steaming seafood. I had the snow crab and shrimp combo and it was delicious.

Who knew you can boil shrimp, crab, and potatoes in a bag? Ok, do a lot of you knew that already, but it was news to me. This is a casual eating experience - that's why they give you buns and double disposable gloves. It's...More

The amount of liquid seasoning is overwhelming. Yes it adds adenture to the meal experience but it overwhelms the inherent taste of your dish. The spices should enhance the dish and not be the focus. Overall, messy fun but the seafood itself was just average.

A Good restaurant with great service. This place is similar to the Boiling Crab but not as packed and with way much better service. Unlike the Boiling Crab, wait staff here acknowledges customers and making eye contact. The Cajun-spiced sauce could be better though (too...More

If you are going just for the food, The Boiling Pots wins hands down both taste and amount. Joe's does have a nice outside play area for kids and a patio. Hope he enjoys his Birthday.
