So we carried out supper- large shrimp, large popcorn shrimp and a supposedly steamed gulf shrimp. All their fried food is plentiful and very good. The gulf shrimp with heads on was way too tough to peel. The flavor was very good but they were...just cooked too long. Stick with fried or broiled seafood in my opinion!!!More

Boiling pot is a local treasure that continues to consistently serve FLAVORFUL fried seafood in huge portions for a great price! The over-indulgence should be a crime and if it is, I will definitely risk it. I recently visited a seafood place in St. Augustine,...Florida called Sunset Grille and experienced boring fried seafood flavor. I posted it on tripadvisor, and the owner, who seemed broken-hearted, responded saying that the breading was not seasoned so that you can taste the seafood...queue the sad violoin music. My answer to that excuse is the Boiling Pot!!!More

I absolutely enjoyed everything. I am from Florida. We had the best time of our life in Alabama. We couldn’t have chosen a better place with such an amazing selection.

I ordered the New Orleans Seafood pasta, with shrimp creole, and red beans and rice as my sides. It was perfectly prepared and more than I should have eaten... However, no regrets. Traveling through mobile for work and was my first visit here. However, I...can assure you it will not be my last. Staff was very friendly, everything was extremely clean and they were quite busy signifying that they are highly thought of in the community. Next time I will certainly have the stuffed flounder as it looked awesome. You could not ask for it to have been more reasonably priced. Great job and thank you for a wonderful experienceMore

Again w prior reviews -delicious food. I had the 1# headless steamed shrimp and wow! Great seasoning—just messy as the shells were left on. We also got fried shrimp, grit balls, gumbo and those fries. Enough to take home for dinner. Eating area needed some...attention though.More

Don’t let the location fool you, this is awesome food. I had Shrimp and Grits with a side of gumbo and both were outstanding!

We had heard something about The Boiling Pot and decided to try it. When we pulled up I kind of wondered if we had made a mistake. Don’t judge a restaurant solely on how it looks. It isn’t a fancy restaurant but the food was...amazing. The staff helped us with our order and everything was great. We shared crab cakes, fried grit balls, crawfish balls, and sausage and Gumbo. All very good and well presented. This is so worth the time. Go eat some yummy food y’all.More

We always stop by the Boiling Pot on Airport when in town. Order the large shrimp PoBoy it is plenty to split for two people and bring some home. The shrimp always tastes so fresh. The french fries are crinkle cut and crispy. Do not...pass up the fried Grits either. It is too large fried Grit Balls served with a cajun style creamy sauce. Do not pass this place up, nothing to look at inside but the food is delicious.More

My father and I stopped in for a late lunch. He ordered the small shrimp lunch with potatoes and gumbo and I ordered the large shrimp platter dinner with fries and hushpuppies. When the order was up, I retrieved it and marveled at the 24...shrimp piled up in the basket. I was amazed, not just at the quantity, but the size of those shrimp. We both enjoyed the sweet tea. But back to those shrimp. Such a pleasure to eat, some of the best in town. The taste was great, size large and seasoned just right and fried to perfection. One thing was a disappointment, the hushpuppies. These hushpuppies were small, hard and not fluffy. They were no pleasure to eat, so they were trashed.More

Yes. I hope you found the restaurant. The one on Airport Blvd is MUCH better than the one in Tillmans Corner.
