We were staying in North Myrtle Beach and wanted some good seafood. I wanted to try some of the Murrells Inlet restaurants, but didn't feel like taking the drive, so figuring Calabash was closer, we decided to give The Boundary House a try. Our 13 yr old doesn't like seafood, and this was a great place to get seafood and... More

In the area on vacation, stopped by Boundary House twice - both meals have been great. Only drawback was the 90 minute wait the second time - and we had two toddlers with us. Just a very busy place - expect a wait each night during peak summer season.

Whenever in the Calabash area a visit to Boundary House is a must. Our party of five all had different meals and no one was disappointed. I personally like the ribs, but had a very good steak this time. The service was excellent. Of course, we will return again. Also, a visit to Callahans on the corner is a must... More

I've eaten here many times but this time I decided to splurge and get an appetizer, alcoholic drinks, and entree. Usually only regular drinks and entree. The appetizer was delicious - Crab Dip. We found our entrees to be pretty ordinary though, especially my wife's. She got the combo of shrimp and flounder and received about 6 medium sized shrimp... More

After reading other reviews, we decided to try Boundary House, and went early (5:30). We were told there was a 15 minute wait, and they took us within that time. It was very crowded even at that time - but it is summer in the Grand Strand, after all! Our server was quick, and brought us our drinks promptly. She... More

This is one happening place! It is a great place to eat and they have key lime pie candies! That are delicious:) The food was great, the hush puppies taste like fried dough from the fair and the salads come out with a delicious warm croissant. It was fabulous! I highly recommend it.

We tried The Boundary House for the first time this year on our family vacation. We made early dinner reservations at 430. The service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious. We will certainly go back again!

We really enjoyed this place. The lighting was low, the kitchen was open, service was very good, prices reasonable and the food was very good. Definitely great for couples and families. I'd definitely recommend it to friends. If you are looking for something different in Calabash rather than mounds of fried seafood, give the Boundary House a try.

This is a great place for lunch. Haven't tried the dinner menu yet but I am sure that we will. The baked potato soup tasted like give me another bowl. Service was really good. Read the back of the menu. THe history of the place is really interesting. Kid friendly.

Well the title of this review is the bottom line. If you are looking for traditional fried fish - fish camp style food you will not like this at all! There isn't a greasy thing in this place! The food is delicious... Well prepared, fresh, full of taste and flavor - yummy enough to make you feel guilty, but healthy... More
