Call them Low Country Boils, Cajun Boils, Frogmore Stew or whatever…they are simply good eating! Here is what they are all about…

The basic ingredients are shrimp, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, red potatoes, lemons, whole garlics, and spices. From this simple beginning, you can customize your boils by adding any of the following:  crawfish, king crab legs, mussels, and clams.

The Shrimp Dock is a “one-stop-shop” destination for shrimp boils. We will gladly offer the loan of a 60 or 80 quart pot and burner stand to customers who purchase their ingredients from us, subject to availability.  (From April to July, these pots are in great demand so please reserve early).  We do require a $125.oo credit card deposit for the 24 hour equipment usage. All you need to supply is the propane tank and a healthy appetite! And, not to worry, we will furnish you with the fool-proof cooking instructions…even a novice can pull this off with style!

With the proper timing, all of these ingredients are added to a very large pot of boiling water. The potatoes take about 15-20 minutes and the shrimp take only 2 minutes. Once done, ice is poured into the pot to stop the cooking process. The key to the “temperature” , or spiciness, of the final product in the length of time the whole concoction is allowed to steep, usually about fifteen minutes. Then the strainer is pulled from the pot and poured out onto a newspaper covered table—-dinner is served!

You can do a seafood boil for 2 people or 200! We customize every boil that we prepare. We have catered events up to 1,000 people and can coordinate a total event, including appetizers, desserts, beverages, and table service. Please contact us at the store or e-mail us at to set up a meeting.
