The Captain’s Boil

I tried boiling seafood for the first time at Captain’s Boil a while back, and it was literally amazing.

They infuse Cajun and Asian flavors for their sauces, and their Captain’s Boil sauce is *the chef’s kiss*.

The coolest thing about eating here is that there are no plates or utensils – you eat using only your hands and you eat right off the table.
