Message from the Business

Founded by Dot Le Blanc, The Boiling Pot began 21 years ago down in Rockport, Texas. Since then we have added the 6th Street location providing Austin with Cajun-style boiled seafood, heavy on the spices, in a casual family atmosphere. Pull up a chair at our tables draped with butcher paper, tie a bib around your neck, and grab a wooden mallet! We pride ourselves on serving you the best boudin, shrimp, blue crabs, stone crab claws, and crawfish. We'll throw it all on the table so you can dig in! So come on in and join the crowd. Our beer selection is sure to please, if not amaze you. We're located one block west of Interstate 35 on world famous 6th Street. Second building on your right. See ya soon!

My wife and I ate at the BoilingPot this evening and were misguided by the fun looking decorations. We have a bay house on the coast and frequently have shrimp and crab boils with our family so we were excited about the... (more)

Been here twice. The food poured on your table is suppose to the old cajun thing, seems silly. Ive had good cajun and who cares about how its presented - it has to taste like cajun. This doesnt have any flavor. Ive lived in... (more)

<b>In Short</b><br>Step into Cajun country--a hands-on, spicy, tangy, finger-lickin' kind of place. Here waiters cover the tables with butcher paper, place bibs around your neck and supply you with a... (more)

I think they have the best crawfish in town. I love the atmosphere, I just LOVE this place. It is more expensive usually, so we don't get to come here often. Sometimes it's $9/pound for crawfish and razoos up north is... (more)

Being a native of lafayette, louisiana (cajun heritage) and growing up on cajun cuisine--both home cooked and restaraunt, if there is any expert on what is good cajun food it is me. I worked in the near vicinity and was... (more)
