Imported from New York City, a Southern Gulf Coast-inspired menu restaurant debuted in the on the west side, hoping to mark a mark on the local and very busy, seafood-in-a-bag dining scene.
Replacing the large, 5,717-sqaure-foot former home of Halo Restaurant & Bar, The Boilery Seafood & Grill is now open for dine-in customers and takeout orders at the Sahara Decatur Plaza, close to Aloha Kitchen at the intersection of Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard.
Designed with a casual nautical flair, the Las Vegas franchise is a spin-off of three Manahattan restaurants, and serves a similar menu influenced by the Southern Gulf Coast, and flavors and dishes of New England and the Carolinas.
Diners can order their catch of the day by the pound, including Alaskan king crab, shrimp, crawfish, Dungeness crab, clams, mussels, scallops, and lobster tails, then pick a sauce and level of spiciness,
Customers not wishing to wear a bib or dive-into a seafood bag have plenty of other options including sandwiches and baskets, crab cakes, fish tacos, fried calamari, and raw bar favorites of oysters or Maine lobster. Entrees of grilled whole branzino, broiled Atlantic salmon, and Cajun shrimp can be upgraded with garlic noodles and broccoli.
The restaurant offers dine in service as well as online ordering for takeout.
The Boilery Seafood & Grill, 2605 S. Decatur Boulevard, 702-405-8838. Open Sunday through Thursday from noon to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from noon to 11 p.m.
