This is a great spot. Recently renovated. The po'boys are good. The shrimp basket is a special favorite of mine.

Boiling Pot is a large restaurant with counter service. Their specialty is good fried seafood, but I had a crab stuffed flounder and it was very good.

Visited with family first time and pleased how good food was. Had a little of everything on menu. Only issue is needs to be a bit cleaner.

This is a frequent stop for me when traveling to Mobile. I ordered the headless steamed shrimp with gumbo and hushpuppies. I received 17 extra large shrimp which were done just right, crisp with a perfect snap when you bit into them. The Cajun seasoning is flavorful but not over powering. My gumbo was good and a perfect size for not over indulging. The hushpuppy side was 8 pieces which was too much for a side, good taste but too many. This is not a fancy seafood place but the quality beat the fancy place I ate at hands down. I should have known better and trusted my past experiences. I shall return.

This place is a joke. The food is not very good for the prices. My husband got boiled crawfish and they were horrible. No seasoning, no taste. Uck.
