Your choice of a variety of ingredients are all thrown in a pot and boiled with Cajun seasonings. The food is then dumped on the table and it becomes finger food. It's a rather unique and fun experience. Because my husband does not tolerate spicy food, they tried to accommodate by rinsing the food before serving. It was still too... More

I didn't have any idea what to expect, but let me say that this is an experience to remember, fun, fun and great for if your craving all types of seafood. I got the small bucket and mallot, how fun is that? Beer is so cold and that's great on a hot Texas day or evening. I can't wait to... More

Love the spice, love the freshness! The service is some of the best in Rockport. Was hesitant about the heads on boiled shrimp but husband was accommodating and they were the the best, cooked to perfection.

Great food with a unique twist.... cajun combo is served on the paper laid table with great service and buzzing atmosphere. The tin shake is uniquely designed and we left our mark as do all who dine with the Boiling Pot!! Thank you very much, we will be back!

Loved the atmosphere and the no frills dining. The kids were not as thrilled by the food on the table as the adults were, only because the food dumped on their drawings. The food was tasty and the service was good.

When in Rockport The Boiling Pot is a must. Nothing fried but a bowl of cooked shrimp, sausage, new potatoes and corn on the cob. (Crawfish were unavailable and we chose extra shrimp rather than crab.) All are boiled in a Cajun seasoning, drained and dumped on the table. The service is great and price is reasonable for fresh seafood.... More

The place has a wonderful atmosphere. Very upbeat and friendly staff. We ordered the cajun combo and added some crawfish. We asked for a little more spice as we are used to spicy crawfish from Louisiana. The crawfish were a little overboiled as was the shrimp. The flavor was bland as we asked for more seasoning on the side to... More

We have been to this Boiling Pot several times over the years and were a little disappointed this trip. Food was OK, paid extra for Stone Crab and it was flavorless - likely frozen. The shrimp was a little overcooked and there was no spicy boil flavor - didn't even ask if we wanted spice. It was a little dirty,... More
