A Great Pick on the Island

I like the atmosphere, menu and food here at the Boathouse. The service is average and it is often quite crowded. Try going in the off hours to get seated quickly.

We've been coming here for a long time. I used to live on HHI, and now when we visit we have to make a stop at Boathouse. Our kids love it and it's even better now that they've added outdoor games for them to play (corn hole, sand tables, etc). It can get very busy during peak seasons and the... More

So far it is impossible to say anything bad about this place. Food is always fantastic and the staff has been so so polite and friendly. They make you want to come back again and again !!!

Great atmosphere, casual, upbeat but the food is sub-par. It's a great place for families and groups, but if you're looking to be impressed by the food try something else.

Outstanding seafood, but be prepared to arrive earlly or wait a long time. They have indoor and outdoor dining. The Spanish cornbread is outstanding. Very different and tasty. The hushpuppies are a bit spicy. Not as good as some we've tried. Their Caesar Salad has a green goddess caesar dressing. A bit different. Okay but noot great in our opinion.... More

The Hilton Head Boathouse is just as the name implies, a BOATHOUSE. Many of the reviews have it confused with the restaurant right next door, the Skull Creek Boathouse. I have kept my boat here now for three years and the staff has always been great. I can have my boat put in the water, taken out, or put on... More

I like, love their Salmon and all their seafood. I love their staff and the prices. A must try for locals, groups, or just a couple. Dress how you like. It is just a fun place to go and the view over the water is a plus

We had a yummy mid-afternoon meal at Skull Creek Boathouse restaurant. We arrived around 1:30 and we were seated immediately. Our waiter, Dennis, made some great recommendations for us. The Oysters Rockefeller were very good, as was the Mahi Mahi and the Swordfish special. We will definitely be back!

We enjoy the waterfront view and the pet friendly patio. The menu has a wonderful variety of food. There are entrees, sandwiches, and appetizes to please everyone in your party. This is a fun venue, however be prepared to wait. There is always a crowd at the Boathouse!

Best thing here is the sunset! And really, with out that, and the water, it is average. The parking is difficult, the inside noise level is high and some of the food is over priced and very mediocre. Great bar scene.
