The Captain’s Boil is one of those no-frills-lets-get-down-and-dirty type of seafood restaurant, a popular trend that has been popping up in Toronto recently. An innovative way to have a seafood meal, The Captain’s Boil provides a sort of messy but fun experience to share with your family and friends. The first step to getting starting is choosing the type of seafood you would like to consume and choosing the flavour and spice level.
Decisions decisions, seafood is charged by the pound so we decided to go with a pound of mussels, clams, snow crab and garlic bread, because carbs is definitely needed to soothe the amount of seafood we were about to consume.
Putting on a bib like a good girl, because things are about to get real messy.
The seafood came in plastic bags where it was tossed and mixed with the spices of your choice. Tables are lined with brown paper where you’re supposed to toss your shells directly on. Quite odd but I guess it works..

Mussels with Cajun, Medium Heat
Snow Crab with Captain’s Boil Spices
Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. The seafood was good but nothing particularly special. Out of everything I had, I would say the mussels were quite disappointing.
Although they were sized pretty big, it was pretty bland. Would give this place or something along the same concept line another shot though.
