Are you a native Texan?

In all my time I spent in east Texas I never had someone say low country.  I am familiar with the term all along the east coast.

Are you trying to ask about a crawfish boil?

Have you googled low country clam bake?

I did.

I can't tell if it's Yankees, or Canadians, or both.  

I don't know about you, but right now, I'm thinking about reaching for something cold and shiny., and it's not a Coors light can.

You can find the term in North and South Carolina too.  What even more funny then the low country term is asking a Yankee what BBQ is.  They think anything cooked on a grill is BBQ.  I had to explain to a few that hot dogs and burgers are not.   I have also dealt with yankies that think soft tacos are fajitas then listen to them argue about it when you try and correct them.

I used to get these near Rockport and Corpus Christie.
Crawfish are out of season.
This is pretty much the same thing but boiled crab, mussels, clams,
shrimp, potatoes and corn.

I am thinking if someone told you the term low country they are not from around here or they got the term from watching the food network to much as I can never remember it being used in any part of Texas that I have been to.

I also can't ever remember clams being popular in any boil I have been to in Texas.

But I may also be wrong as what they used to call Texas / outlaw / progressive country is now being called Red Dirt .  That term was never used when I was younger

Been in Houston since I was 4, 39 years ago.  Did 3 years of chemo/radiation at MD Anderson, the reason we came.
My Illinois mom calls it a Clam Bake, my South Carolina grandmother calls it a seafood boil, my paramedic counterpart
is homegrown in Metairie, LA and calls is a low country boil.  Joe's Crab Shack calls it a Steampot.

So what the fuck do YOU call it?  No one has offered any other names for it.  It isn't a crawfish boil if there are no crawfish!
Link Posted: 8/30/2015 9:03:04 PM EDT
And come to think of it, I really don't care what you call it.  I just want to know where the hell I can get
a good one that is not at my house or a shitty place like Joe's.

I suppose the trick is to know what to ask for...

Last time I was in Houston we went to the ragin cajun on Richmond Ave.
It was not bad.
One thing I always note is the parking lot.
It was full, indicating to me that they must be doing something right.

Someone else may check in with a better suggestion.

What you are looking for is simply called boiled seafood.

Now, if you want to know where to get seafood in Metairie, where I lived for about 50 years, I can help you with that as well.

most any Cajun place I would say.. And I just always called it a boil

Try Kemah, Seabrook places. Born and raised here We don't have clams, lobster,mussels. We do have shrimp, blue crab, oysters, and crawfish. Never ever heard "low country " used in Texas or La. Most of the time it's called a crab boil or shrimp boil.

Why don't you call it a cookout?  I know you don't want to cook any of that stuff in the house.
