Boil Seafood House

Not Sponsored: One of my blog goals for 2020, was to showcase some New Orleans restaurants. New Orleans has a plethora of restaurants. We're known for our delicious food, lighthearted & easy spirit and fun times. With the covid-19 pandemic, I was ready to scratch this goal off my list. I felt it would be impossible to do ... let alone fulfill. New Orleans is currently in Phase 2, but some restaurants are allowing you to dine-in (many are still only offering take-out). One restaurant that has reopened and is offering both take-out and dine-in options is Boil Seafood House. Just as the name suggests, it serves boiled seafood and lots of other delicious seafood options (but I'll get to that in a minute). Boil Seafood House is located on Magazine Street, here in New Orleans. Magazine Street is six miles of restaurants and shops. You'll find lots of boutique shops and multi-cultural dining on Magazine Street. If you love seafood, you'll love Boil Seafood House! They offer boiled seafood by the pound (such as crawfish, shrimp, various types of crab, lobster, mussels, clams), they offer a scrumptious choice of seafood buckets, they have overstuffed po-boys and platters, gumbo, crawfish etouffee, seafood salads, crawfish beignets and an array of other delicious dishes. Are you hungry yet? I made reservations using Open Table. Upon arriving, we were promptly seated and attended to (our waiter's name was Phil). He was the sweetest waiter. He asked if we had been to Boil Seafood House before and we explained we hadn't. So he explained the process to us. You pick your catch (seafood), then your flavor (Caribbean, Cajun, Garlic Butter or Boil House) and then you pick your heat (low, medium, high, extra high). We ordered a dozen flavorful & delicious char-grilled oysters. The french bread that came with it was so fresh and delicious. We devoured some tasty mussels. They had some kick, because we chose medium heat for those, but they were delicious. We all ordered The Cajun Classic Seafood Bucket. It contains (1 lb of Crawfish, 1 lb of Shrimp, 1 Andouille Sausage, 2 Corn and 2 Potatoes). It was really, really good. All the seafood was fresh. It was well prepared and presented. The sausage was flavorful, tender and delicious. I loved the corn and potatoes. I ate everything! There was nothing not to love. Phil promptly removed our shells, refilled our drinks and made sure we had everything. All of the waiters and waitresses wore masks. The restaurant made sure tables adhered to the social distancing guidelines. I loved the decor of Boil Seafood House. They had these beautiful hand-painted murals featuring shrimp boats, three dimensional trees and scenic waterways. I was particularly enamored with the toothy gator holding the paper towels on the bar. I had a Hurricane to drink. The thing about Hurricane cocktails, is that they "hit" you once you're finish. So keep that in mind. We brought a shrimp po-boy and combo platter (Shrimp, Fish, Crab Cake served with Corn Fritters, fries, Side Salad or Cole Slaw)(not pictured) home with us for later. Both were really good, but the STARS of the show were definitely Boil Seafood's House BOILED SEAFOOD. I would definitely recommend them and go back again. Take a look at other people's reviews and pictures of the food at Boil Seafood House on Yelp! I do want to mention one thing about Magazine Street! Finding a parking spot can be difficult. I lucked up. So think about catching an UBER or LYFT. Also, let me suggest that you find out what else is within that block or two while you're there (to make it all worthwhile). That way you'll maximize your time and money. I think for the rest of this year, I want to concentrate on the restaurants on Magazine. I'll post my reviews here. Hope you found this review helpful. Feel free to contact me on Twitter, if you have any questions.
