Service was very good and food arrived quickly. Nice selection of beverages, had shrimp platter and hurricane chicken. Both dishes were very good. The potato soap was one of the best I've ever had. Both dishes were very good. Outstanding was the croissant bread pudding, perfect for sharing!

We used to go here quite often. It has been a while and will be a while before we return. The salad, which used to be good, consisted of mainly the hard ribs of the lettuce. I ordered grilled shrimp, which I believe were just boiled and set on the grill. No grill marks were present. My husband ordered the... More

We drove up from Myrtle Beach with my parents and two kids to have dinner and enjoyed it very much. We ordered a variety of items from seafood/steak/chicken fingers to meal size salads and everyone was happy with their choices. Delicious, large salads come with each meals as well as fresh croissants. Server was very patient with our questions and... More

We went to The Boundary House on a recommendation of a friend. Very nice atmosphere and great wait staff. We ordered a good variety of items and really was underwhelmed. I had the three item combo with grilled flounder, grilled shrimp and the crab cake. Flounder was very bland, shrimp were good and crab cake was better than average. Baked... More

We loved our meals and Jeffery, our waiter, was very personable and attentive. The bacon dressing is the best ever, as are the croissants! There were three of us. One had the crab cake and rice and it was amazing. Another had the grilled chicken and pasta alfredo which was prefection. I had the special, which was a turkey burger... More

We were here for our annual beach vacation and the food and experience was so good we came back a second time before leaving town. Quality food in a more relaxing environment than your typical beach dining experience. Between our 2 evenings our party thoroughly enjoyed the fried oysters, crab cakes, grilled shrimp, fried shrimp, and blackened scallops. All were... More

The food was excellent, the seafood must've been caught that morning. Our server was amazing, she was quick and went above & beyond. Let me sample the soup and when I clumsily knocked it over after just one bite she got me another, bigger sample! Couldn't have been better!! Great prices and portions.

My daughter and I ate there and she had fried oysters and fried shrimp. I had grilled scallops. When they brought the salad there was a crescent roll on the side drizzled with butter and sweetness. A sweet potato was served to me with my dinner and probably the best I've eaten in any restaurant anywhere. People were lining the... More

Worst meal and service ever in the NC/SC beach area. Large place, surly waitress and food that must have been imported from a chain restaurant on the NJ Turnpike. Avoid this experience when visiting the coast.
