|Barely crossing the border into Mississippi, you experience
The Boiling Point, created in the image of "Old Style" Boiling
Points or Seafood Patios in southern Louisiana. The Boiling
Point was designed to give all the ambiance of a front porch
during a noisy family reunion. The Boiling Point is even equipped
with a sink in the dining room, a trademark of a true "Old
Style" Boiling Point. The checkerboard tablecloths, tin-covered
bar, and rustic décor make you feel as though you were
at one of South Louisiana's trademark boiled seafood joints.
The Boiling Point's "patio" was even built with the brick
of Southaven's historic Sowell House
| that once stood in its place. The full service shuck-to-order
oyster bar allows patrons a treat, not many people this far north enjoy.
The Boiling Point specializes in fresh raw Louisiana oysters on the
half-shell, as well as, heaps of spicy crawfish piled high on corn,
andouille sausage, and new potatoes. Fresh fish arrives throughout the
week, giving people that gulf fresh delight that landlocked communities
rarely get to eat. The Boiling Point serves everything from fried, broiled,
barbecued, blackened, grilled, roasted, and of course, boiled seafood.
Hungry locals order southern specialties such as fried alligator, frog
legs, and fried dill pickles regularly.
The Boiling Point has won many awards: Best Seafood Restaurant in Desoto
County 2004 by The Desoto Times and in 2005, by The Desoto Tribune;
and Best of Show at The American Heart Association's annual fund raiser.
The Boiling Point is locally owned and operated.
