Food and service was amazing! We were a bit rushed towards the end, however, we understand that the space is rather small and others were waiting for reservations made.

Overall, nice experience.

The food was amazing, a little pricey but still good. The place is very small. They would have so much business if they moved to a larger space. Since it's small, they aren't following social distance orders at all.

The food was amazing we order seafood rice which was awesome with great flavor. My wife ordered the snow crab cluster with the house dressing which was very tasty. I order the Dungeness cluster with shrimp with a little bit of heat I loved it . Would definitely go again.

OMG!!!...If you are looking for somewhere to go and just have a nice chill time well this is the place to be. First of all the service is over the top It was my birthday and Rob and the rest of the crew made sure that we had a good time. The customers like myself were chill the music was on point and the food was so so good. Five stars is not enough this place is all that. I will be returning over and over again.

My fiancé and I visited here about 7x this year alone!! Staff is always professional!! Food is very good! A bit on the pricey side but I guess that what the market price is for seafood. We always sat outdoors but the last two times it was raining and ate in doors! Overall, we love it and will be back next week!!

We went to The boiling house for lunch my moms birthday. The weather was unseasonably warm so we were able to eat outside. The food was excellent! We really enjoyed it! The tables were spread apart so we weren’t close to anyone else. Great experience! Will definitely be going back

We had an amazing night weatherwise and were able to eat outside. The wait staff was intentive, and the food came out very quick. This was our first experience there and it was beyond our expectations.

Had an amazing meal and our server Shelby was great! She did everything they could to make us comfortable with an extra heater near our table and plenty of ice buckets for BYOB so we could sit outside on a beautiful fall night. The seafood festival fed 4 grown hungry adults easily and the tables are perfectly spaced for Covid precautions. The night was prefect.

The service and food were great ordered the crab and mussels along with the seafood fried rice. All of that was enough to share between two people. The value of the food was great along with the portion sizes.
