Located in a strip mall, nothing fancy but reasonably priced and generous portions. You order from the counter. The night we were there the area you clear your plates to was overflowing and needed some attention. If you are in the mood for tasty seafood and not a dining "experience" then check out the Boiling Pot.

Excellent food and served fresh and hot. Counter service with plenty of seating. I though the value was good with generouse portions. Not really a fancy place food comes out in baskets and you bus the tables yourself.

I hit this spot every time I am in Mobile. The portions on the large plates will more than satisfy anyone and I have yet to have anything that was not good. Try the Fried crab claws. The only thing I would like to see added are combo plate options. Let me choose two or three items.

The seafood at The Boiling Pot is just as good as the seafood on the Causeway in Mobile. Every time I go here the taste exceeds expectations. At this restaurant you have to order you food at the counter and they call your number when it is ready. So, it gives you the impression it is kind of fast food... More

Not fancy, but great seafood. Plenty of food and seasoned just right! Friendly and efficient staff and reasonably priced meals. Lots of choices! Tip: Unless you are starved, order the small plates or else a large to share with someone. Also, they let you substitute on the combo platter.

We have been here many times. When family visits, we take them here. A variety of choices and they are all good.

I'm okay with fried food, but EVERYTHING was fried. It just wasn't appealing to us. Seemed like it was under renovation, but it wasn't. Not worth the trip.

Great down home seafood restaurant. Great prices, good portion sizes, and great selection. The only place in town to enjoy Fried Green Tomatoes and Watermelon Tea! Don't miss out on this place!

We ordered fried fish, shrimp, and oysters and enjoyed everything. As sometimes occurs when eating oysters, I bit into a few pieces of shell but overall I would eat there again. The interior could use updating.

This is the equivalent to Long John Silvers. The food was so bland and overpriced. They had no crawfish available and the staff is unmotivated and unfriendly. I was surprised my daughter's popcorn shrimp was actually shrimp but her corn on the cob was so old it smelled bad and there was space between the kernels. My catfish was so... More
