Went there today, and was quite dissapointed to find the place closed. The Boiling pot was always busy at this location. Always a generous portion. From what I understand their Airport Bl location is still open.

There is no need to visit the big fancy seafood restaurants in the Mobile area to get great seafood. This locally owned tucked away restaurant puts big taste at a reasonable price on your table. Get the royal red shrimp when available. Excellent selection of Poboys on good French bread.

Although it lacked in customer service, the food was great. I will be going back. A. Little pricey for the 10.00 poboy that had no fries on the side.

On a recent business trip to Mobile Alabama I got a craving for boiled crawfish. They were out of season so I had to settle for something different. I came across this place by accident and even though you do not have table service the food was great, and the staff was friendly and helpful. You get more food than... More

I wanted some seafood for dinner and this place was recommended. The service was great, very friendly. You order at the counter, get your number, sit down and they call your number for you to come get your food. It is cooked fresh when you order, so this is a huge plus. i ordered the combo of fried shrimp, fish,... More

Ordered the full Shrimp Po'Boy, crab bites and fries. Enough food for 4 people! It was great. We heard you get a lot of food for the money and you do. The Po'Boy was about $20 but soooo much shrimp. We'll be back!!!

If you don't have a big appetite, then I wouldn't recommend Boiling Pot. However, if you love great seafood and a lot of it, then The Boiling Pot is the place to go. If you leave here hungry then it's your own fault. Everything I have ever had here was great. My new favorite is the surf and turf and... More

Good Value for your dollar. Generous helping. Good food. Good variety. Don't order dinner meals if you are on a diet or are not really hungry. Lunch will totally fill you up. I believe they cook your food the moment you order it. It will be fresh but you should not expect fast food service. Pick up your food, find... More
