Food and service are always good! Celebrated birthday with a free Boston lobster and a complimentary slice of cake. Portion is large. Fried oysters and spicy wings are good.
the best. especially during birthday month when you can get free lobster. messy fun casual way of dining. best with a group
A place suitable for a farewell lunch. Not too noisy.
The place is abit inside the industrial area but the food is pretty good but too pricy
This is my third visit to The Boiler. The Bombdiggity Bag is awesome with medium the works sauce. It is my birthday month, I have a free boston lobster with garlic butter sauce. The Dungeness crab is delicious that we ordered 1 more crab with the same sauce. I love the Lychee Beerjito. So refreshing. Overall the staffs are friendly and attentive. My family had a wonderful dinner at The Boiler.
The lunch menu looks much comprehensive now. Apart from Boiler's famed seafood bags, their lunch menu also has a selection of reasonably priced 'regular' food. Their Signature Fish and Chips was deep fried to a perfect crisp served with a generous portion of Cajun fries. The Boiler’s Ultimate Burger has a thick beef patty with lettuce, tomato, onion rings and topped with an onion ring and house made bacon jam and the sauce has that that nice smoky sweet BBQ taste.
We've been to cajun kings, and dancing crab. This time round, I ordered their signature bag with the crab @ $145 with a medium spicy sauce. The prawns were fantastic. The right freshness and texture. Well done. The mussels and clams were average and so was the corn. I could do without the sausages. How bout some squid? The crab was fine. Pretty much what you can get at the other 'crab diners'. The servers were polite and prompt but appeared tired and worn out. In comparison, the other 2 diners had chirpy staff who were more attentive. The unexpected 'find' of this place was the music. A medley of slow tunes, rock, new and old... but whoever did the music selection - well done! It worked. I was more impressed with the music selection than the food. Not sure if that is a good thing but my take on this place - go try it sometime and decide if it's for you. The music and the prawns were my favorite.
I had the fish and chips, baby back ribs, and chicken and waffles! Fish was crisp, light, and definitely not over fried as some I've had. Ribs' sauce was really good and not too cloyingly sweet - finger licking good! It was my first time having chicken and waffles and I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. It was a little small but it's a starter so it's expected! I had the lava cake for dessert, and it was baked and had just the right balance of sweetness. The service here is really excellent, and I'm definitely coming back for the dinner menu (Cajun prawns and buttered lobsters, please!)!
Great environment for a crab and lobster feast. We arrived way earlier than our reserved time but were shown to our seats without a complain. Service was good and quick and we waited only 10 mins for the food to arrive. We ordered a lobster, a crab, some fries and a cob of corn. The lobster was fresh and juicy - tasted great. The crab was heavenly. The meat was tender and fresh, the shells were easily removed and I must say that it is the best crab experience I had. Double thumbs up! The only thing that I think could be done better would be to sit couples who wanted some quiet time away from the big groups who are noisy to the max.
Had a really fun experience at The Boiler for Mothers' Day. Excellent service, staff were friendly and patient, explaining the orders and obliging to photos (they had to go clean their hands every time). I recommend skipping the crab and just ordering the large, juicy prawns! The butter-garlic sauce is slightly lacking in flavour, but the spicy sauce was awesome!
