Up front... this is not a fancy place. This is a dive! If you just want fresh local seafood, this is your place. My husband and I needed our shrimp and crawfish fix and we got it here. They had either all you can eat...More

We DID NOT eat at TARANTO Boiler. We walked in, and it SMELLED so bad, that we turned around and walked out.

If you are hankering crawfish, this is the place! BY the pound or by the bowl, you can't go wrong. The oysters are pretty good, too, as well as the other seafood on the menu. Good family place.

Waitresses are great. Food is best. Mr. T is always around to insure quality. We go at least once a week.

Well, after care consideration by different patrons we just had to go check it out for ourselves. It is a dive, but in a good way. A little run down on the inside, the bathrooms could use a lot of work, and you might want...More

I found this place through Restaurant.com, but won't go back. They were out of one selection, the overall selection was poor and even the chicken wings had freezer burn. I might only suggest it for crawfish lovers. That seemed to be the most popular dish...More
