Funky little restaurant. Sit outdoors if the weather is nice. Wait staff was good, took kidding real well. Food spicy, but hey, that's why you're here, right?

“Good Food”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Great food and service, interesting decor. We did have the boil, I felt that it was kinda short on shrimp and too much sausage but it was still good.

“They said it's hot...I should have believed them!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Really neat little place. I love crab boil restaurants. So we decided to try it out. I've eaten cajun style before without problems. This was HOT! (as in spicy) Almost to where I couldn't taste the food and the skin around my mouth was on fire! We cut the corn off the cob and that relieved the face fire problem. Very good though! I would go there again. The atmosphere was nice. Fun place to eat.

“Not the same anymore...”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

We went to Rockport for some good seafood and came back totally disdapointed!
The Boiling Pot had been one of our favorites. Unfortunately it's not the same anymore.
If you like over cooked corn, potatoes and cold sausage, this could be your place.
As noticed in other write ups they were out of blue crab and offered an extra 1/4 lb of shrimp for a total of 3/4 lb. They weren't even close. To fill in we ordered a 1/2 lb of Stone Crab. Forget that to. It was not good.
It's too bad. Rockport use to be a place we visited regularly from Dallas but we were hard pressed to find any seafood that was good.
The saving grace was a local fisherman told us were we could buy really good fresh shrimp to take back home. We went to Flowers Shrimp & Bait and picked up 3 lbs and put in our cooler with ice.Having just arrived home we flgrilled up a pound and they were terrific.
If you're in Rockport be sure to go and puck up the best shrimp ever. They are located at 1119 South Church Street. Phone is 361-790- 5751 and they open at 7:09am if you need an early start. Don't miss it. You won't be disdapointef.
PS to Trip Advisor. How can I add a place like this for others to enjoy. Thank you.
