I loved the seafood and the outside dining wasn't bad. The weather was great. I went The Boil on Chrystie Street. Those potatoes and corn on the side is a must. My seafood was awesome. I will definitely be returning very soon.
Who doesn't love a seafood boil? They have a variety of options including crab, lobster, crawfish and a ton of sides. Their drinks pay tribute to New Orleans and the typical drinks you would find there.
We managed to get a table for 6 by calling in on the day. The place was really busy and there was a good vibe. We ordered some starters to share - the chicken wings and calamari were amazing. We then ordered mains and I...would definitely recommend the catfish with fries. The cocktails are also gorgeous, particularly the mojitos. We were sat by the door which is quite chilly so if you visit, I’d ask for a table at the back.More
My cousin and I were looking for seafood restaurants and found this place. I am so glad we chose this spot. I got the 1b of shrimp with the cajun blend seasoning and made it spicy. I also ordered potatoes and corn. It was really...good with just the right amount of seasoning. I also got a peach lemonade cocktail that was good but my cousin let me taste her hurricane and it was one of the best cocktails I've ever had. I will definitely make my way back to this spot when I travel to NY again. The bartender guy was really sweet. The only thing I would change about this place is the cash only option because I usually dont carry cash.More
arrived with no reservation, not a problem at all, seated promptly.
excellent crawfish and king crab combo - with lots of garlic butter. good sides as well, pity there was only 1 small corn on the cob and 1 small potato included in the 2...pound combo.
excellent crowd and excellent drinks, great atmosphere. prompt service.More
I was recommended to The Boil several years ago. Upon looking for a place to eat in NYC recently I remembered the name and looked it up on Trip Advisor. The place was busy and looked as though the patrons were having a blast. The...staff was friendly and attentive. They put on a bib on us and gave us gloves to attack our combo Lobster and Crawfish with Cajun flavor done Creole style and served in a plastic bag with potatoes and corn. It was delish. Be prepared to work for your food and dress casual. May not be a good place for a 1st date:)More
Visiting from Miami we decided to give The Boil a try because it was walking distance to our hotel. Chad our server and great bartender was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable in helping us make a decision with our order since it was our first time...there. They place a bib on you and you get gloves to prepare for an amazing feast of our order which consisted of very flavorful lobster,crab legs and shrimp! We added an order of garlic bread too to dip the bread in their awesome sauce. Amazing place & seafood! We were totally satisfied. They only accept cash but there is an atm with a small fee right inside to the entrance.More
I will NEVER EVER go to this place again. It’s way overpriced for the amount of crab clusters you get. You should at least have 3 clusters of crab legs paying that kind of money, especially for a combo. I ordered the snow crab and...crawfish combo. My first time trying crawfish and there is absolutely NOTHING special about them. They gave me a bag FULL of them and they have absolutely NO meat in them whatsoever. It became a waste of time trying to even open them. I asked the manager to give me another cluster of crab legs instead since I only opened maybe 3 crawfish. He claimed he would be losing money. Then I asked if he could just give me shrimp instead of the crawfish. He said the same thing. Then after telling him many times I barely touched them and that the place came highly recommended, he said he would switch out the crawfish for the shrimp. This place has TERRIBLE management and the server was terrible as well. The best thing was the crab legs and that was it. The shrimp was decent but I would rather have had more crab legs. I would NEVER EVER recommended this place, not even at another location. I don’t know why this spot is so popular, it’s EXTREMELY overrated. I would have been better off at red lobster and saved a little more moneyMore
I ordered barbeque sherps, the dish was a smaller than a lot of barbecue sauce, the fries were salty and spicy and I asked for it not to be spicy Overall it was bad even the price was not cheap, I do not recommend
