As Always "A Great Meal"

We go here often but I never get to review and thought i should. The food is great and the service is always fantastic. Hurricane chicken is a must. The house salad with the house dressing also a must.

Went with several couples. I have eaten here several times. Friendly staff, and the Atlantic flounder thick and tasty. Good atmosphere . A short drive from Myrtle Beach. Will return.

If there is a tourist trap in Calabash NC this wins first prize. The value is just not there, Portions have gotten smaller and prices higher. The enviornment is loud and the wait is just not worth it. There is a constant turnover in staff which tells a story.

If you like fried food and very salty food, this is the place for you! Otherwise you are out of luck. Not especially handicap friendly either. This restaurant is big and very noisy as well.

First visit with a group of 5 when son and daughter-in-law recently moved to NC. What a great choice. From soup (baked potato), appetizers (scallops, calamari, crab dip) to salad to entree (fried shrimp, blackened mahi-Mahi, blackened sea bass, stuffed salmon) to dessert (creme brûlée cheesecake to die for) and coffee were nothing short of outstanding. I don't quite know... More

Absolutely one of the best eating establishments in NC. Located in calabash, it is worth the detour to visit this quaint town and stop for dinner at the Boundary House. Excellent variety from stacks to seafood. A must visit...

Had dinner tonight at the Boundary House and it was excellent as usual. I had the blackened flounder and my wife had the blackened shrimp. We shared with one another and both agree that all was great. Michael waited on us and he just did an excellent job. This has become a must for us when in this area which... More

When Boundary House opened, the food was excellent. I would have rated it the best in the area for families and locals dining out. I rarely go there now. Food is no longer that great and since they have established a steady tourist business, they don't need to serve the quality it was providing a few years ago. You won't... More

After finishing dinner, we noticed flashing lights. Waitress was shining flashlight in and around booths. It was very offensive to some in our party to see waitress laying on the floor cleaning in, around and under booths. Though cleanliness is important, this display was not acceptable . None of us had ever seen this kind of display and believe this... More
