Went to the Boiling Crab for lunch, had King Crab, Prawns and Corn on the Cob.
Highly recommend the Prawns, were fresh an delicious, loads of meat!
The King Crab is a must have, large portion with loads of meat, easy to crack
Simple and very helpful service (showed us the right way to crack the crab)

This is one of those gimmicky eating places that people go to and rave about. We ordered three varieties of crab and two shrimp. They all tasted the same, as if the shrimp and crab had been pre-boiled and then mixed with the same sauce. Eating off the table cloth may appeal to some people....

What appalled me the most was the huge amount of plastic used by this restaurant - all of which no doubt will choke our ocean life in the near future. The tablecloths are plastic, the food is served in clear plastic bags and drinks are served in plastic cups with plastic straws. Everything is 'disposable' and plastic.

everything taste the same, they claimed they ran out of fresh crawfish and only had frozen. they had NO CLUE that raw oysters are to be served with Saltine crackers and lemon, much less cocktail sauce. Seriously, dont call yourself cajun and then present this mess! they wouldnt survive one week in Louisiana!
