The seafood was either frozen or old. Tasted like rubber. Don’t get the mussels. Felt uncomfortable with the closeness of the tables. Didn’t feel comfortable with seating capacity, more than 50% filled. If I get Covid it was because I was there

They brought out our appetizers after the main course came. I was not happy with that.

The food was even better than we remembered, and the service was great excellent.

It would be nice if there were a few more lunch-appropriate items on the menu, but we will definitely return to The Boiling House.

Always a good time at the Boiling House. Been here so many times and it’s always a win. This time I brought my in-laws for the first time to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday. They had a wonderful experience just like I knew they would. Thanks again!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere, the music, the server, didn’t know it was BYOB but I will be ready next time because I am definitely returning! The Dungeness crab legs and shrimp were very tasteful and fresh. I didn’t really like the mussels until I took leftovers home and reheated. Maybe they needed to soak in the sauce a little longer to taste the flavor.

Being as though it was Valentine’s Day, I was not too impressed with the menu and the prices. The food was really good, however, they should have informed people on the website that the menu would be limited due to Valentine’s Day. Our waitress wasn’t too bad but she was moving kind of slow. For what we paid for the food, we could have stayed home and cooked crabs for way less. I love their garlic butter.

Food was great as always, but on Vday they only had two menu choices that was a little expensive for just a little food. I took my 7 yr old daughter Out to eat so I was surprised to see only two menu choices starting at $130. Like I said I come here all the time so I stayed. Great food great service !

I reserved seating. Upon arriving the people were pleasant and explained to me there was a short wait. After ordering the food came out and looked and tasted amazing. If you like seafood this is a good choice to enjoy yourself.
