I think every town needs a restaurant like the Boiler Room. Growing up, my parents took me to Eastern Carolina’s oyster bars far more than I liked. While Mom and Dad mowed down steamed oysters, slaw and saltines, I pouted about not having anything I wanted to eat. Out of that memory, the Boiler Room was born. Oysters, Burgers and beer. Something for everyone- even a grumpy kid.
