I ordered the seafood boil with snow crab legs and shrimp, in Cajun spice. The food arrived quickly and was good and hot. The seafood, potatoes, sausages and corn were well seasoned with just the right amount of heat. The portions were generous and I left full and satisfied. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. It was my first visit and I will definitely be back very soon!

The service was excellent and the food was very good! The lobster tails and crab legs in old bay with butter were a perfect choice! Corn and potatoes were perfect! Expected average price for seafood 🙂 Def. Our new seafood restaurant! Dine before 4pm to get cheaper prices!!

Margaret Carranza Garcia, another Local Guide, maintained that opinion,

Great experience from food to service. The aroma is the best I’ve had on a boil since my grandma’s. Tons of great food worth the price imo.

We enjoyed the “hands-on experience” dining option with shrimp, crawfish, etc. Good flavor (Cajun with medium spices). Prawns, sausages and mussels really appreciated. The crab cakes were flat and decent. Fun meeting place. The music was a little loud. Catering available. I recommend it for families with older children or teenagers. The food came out quickly. Friendly staff. No changing station. The menu has a basket of chicken strips but did not see the children’s menu. Will definitely go back to try other menu items. Very good giant prawns. It’s worth a try.

4. Bailey Seafood – 4.1 stars
3316 Bailey Ave, Buffalo, NY 14215

If crawfish are your jam, you can get a pound for $12.99. You can also choose between a crab, shrimp and salmon platter or a crab, shrimp and sausage combo. There are 5 seafood porridges to choose from, including a personalized porridge. It’s a take-out joint, so don’t expect to eat sit down. Get the full menu here.

Jon Battison, a Google Local Guide who left 5 stars review noted,

Bailey’s Seafood is a neighborhood staple, and for good reason. They focus on seafood and do it very well. I have never had a disappointing meal from them and have tried many things on their ever expanding menu. If you like seafood, you really should try this place. Besides, it’s to go out alone.
