General Questions

We are not a traditional brick and mortar restaurant. We cook all of our Shrimp Boils on location, whether on the beach or in the backyard of your vacation home, etc. Our motto here is, “We Roll Our Pot to Your Spot!”

We require a 24-hour notice (subject to availability). We book up for some weekends months in advance, so please contact us as early as possible to ensure that you get your preferred date.

We serve all of Port Aransas, Mustang Island, North Padre Island, and other areas within a 50-mile radius of Corpus Christi. (For Special Events we will travel further.)

No. We have done Beach Boils and Bonfires for as few as 2 guests and we have the capabilities to serve 300 or more guests.

If you are trying to get your date booked, we suggest using your best guess for the number of guests expected. You can make changes to your Final Headcount up to 48 hours from the event. Any changes to your number of guests will be adjusted on your Final Balance due.

All of our events are private. You and your group will be the only guests at your event.

In the summertime, due to the heat and the time of sunset, we begin our Beach Boils typically at 7:00PM. We have found this time of day to be the most conducive to providing you the best experience possible. It’s a bit cooler, provides plenty of bonfire time after dark, and time for the kids to hunt crabs!

Unfortunately, due to the heat of the summertime the earliest we can start an event would be 6:30PM. We have found however, that most kids who normally go to bed around 7:00 or 8:00PM tend to be running around at 10:00PM and not ready to go home, due to the excitement our Beach Boils & Bonfires bring… Oh yeah, and the S’mores!!! Another option would be to leave the little ones that need to go to bed early at home and book one of our preferred Child Caregivers (an upgrade option).

We serve The Beaches of 361 including North Padre Island, Mustang Island, and Port Aransas area beaches.

Yes, if you are staying on North Padre Island or on the Corpus Christi portion of Mustang Island (From Beach Marker 62-250). Unfortunately, due to a Port Aransas law, we aren’t allowed to setup directly on the beach (From Beach Marker 1-62). But no worries, if you are in Port Aransas we can host your Beach Boil & Bonfire near the jetties and scenic Caldwell Pier in I.B. Magee Beach Park (which is controlled by Nueces County). This stretch of beach is at the northern end of Port A’s Beach and is only a short 5-minute drive by car or 5 to 10-minute ride by golf cart from virtually anywhere in Port Aransas.

Rain outs are very uncommon, but if it were to happen, we would:
1. First, try to reschedule your event to another night in your stay. (This is why we try to schedule you earlier in your stay, as opposed to your last night.)

2. Secondly, if changing your night wasn’t possible (due to it possibly being your last night in town) we would hold your event at your vacation home or other venue (if possible). We even have a portable bonfire pit for this circumstance, so the kids still get S’mores.

3. Lastly, if neither of those options work for you, then we will hold onto your deposit until a future date when we can serve you.

If you cancel your booking, we will apply your deposit to a future booking. Refunds will only be made in extreme circumstances and are at our discretion.

Boil Questions

No, we do not. We do offer Snow Crab Legs as an upgrade option to your Boil.

On all our Boils, the Spicy seasoning is shaken over the top of the Shrimp Boil on the serving table and we always leave one end of the Shrimp Boil virtually Spice-free. That way, whether you have small kids or non-spicy eaters, everyone can enjoy their food! Also, there will be extra Spice Shakers on the table for the Extra-Spicy eaters!!

We take great pride in only serving WILD Shrimp caught in the Gulf of Mexico waters. We buy all of our Shrimp locally.

We also take great pride in our portions. 95% of our guests do not finish all the Boil and all leftovers are sacked up for you to take home and enjoy the next day.

All of our events are BYOB, so just pack a cooler(s) with whatever your guests will want to drink (if on the beach, please no glass). We do not provide cups or ice with our events, unless you choose the Ice Chest Upgrade option.

The only non-seafood option we offer is Hot Dogs for the kids.

We offer reduced portions and pricing for children under 12 years old who want to eat the Shrimp Boil. The only other food option we have for children are Hot Dogs.

No, we do not. However, if you have a guest with a known food allergy or dietary restriction we can make an allowance for that guest to bring their own food to the event. Just omit them from the number of Boil guests but be sure to include them for the Bonfire so that they get an Adirondack Chair and S’mores!!

We understand that not everyone likes seafood (or it doesn’t like them) so… we allow for outside food to be brought in for these guests. Just omit them from the number of Boil guests but be sure to include them for the Bonfire so that they get an Adirondack Chair and S’mores!!

The Boil is normally served between 15-20 minutes of your arrival. We like for you to have a few moments to relax in our comfortable Adirondack chairs and enjoy a beverage before eating.

Absolutely! We understand some people would rather just have everything brought to them. That is why we offer our Backyard Boil option.

No. In our Beach dining packages we only offer them as a package. If you only want the Boil we do offer the Backyard Boil as an option, where the Portable Bonfire Pit is optional and you can still enjoy the S’mores.

No. We try and maintain consistency in the appearance of all our events and the proper extinguishing of the bonfire is our responsibility, if it is our dinner.

If you have someone with a medical condition where they require a special chair, then yes. Otherwise, we try and maintain a common theme with the appearance of our events.

Bonfire Questions

If you have someone with a medical condition where they require a special chair, then yes. Otherwise, we try and maintain a common theme with the appearance of our events.

In most cases the answer is Yes. We have portable bonfire pit(s) which we can bring to your location. Safety is always paramount with us, so unless we are already familiar with the property, a pre-event site inspection may be necessary to confirm there is space for the bonfire pit. There is no charge for this and in most cases we will be able to find a suitable and safe location for your bonfire.
