Generous Portions, Good Food

Friends took us for lunch and we could not have been more pleased with the selection, food and service. While we perused the variety of the regular menu, all of us chose items from the lunch insert. None of us were disappointed with the salads and sandwiches. I would return.

Too pricey if you are looking for seafood in the area. The seafood was similar to other local restaurants, but more expensive. The hush puppies are not good, very dry and flavorless. The grilled shrimp was tasty.

My children planned a wonderful 50th birthday party for me and when their initial plans fell through, we decided to go to the Boundary House. It had been several years since I dined here but I always enjoyed the experience. We had a party of 12, called 2 days in advance to make reservations for 4pm and confirmed them the... More

Crab cakes are all crab with a dusting to keep them together. Everything else is very good to excellent. In summer, make reservation 1 - 2 days in advance.

We have dined at this restaurant 4 times now, and it is our #1 favorite for a great meal with excellent service and a nice atmosphere on the NC shoreline. From the salmon and shrimp to the filet mignon to prime rib, all have been prepared perfectly and the wait staff are very helpful and attentive but never intrusive. We... More

I have eaten at the Boundary House several times, both lunch and dinner. The food and service was always great. Reservations are recommended but not required for dinner.

My husband and I have dined here a few times in the past year and we like the restaurant in general, just the food is nothing much to remark about. My daughter had the crab cake dinner, my husband had the ribs dinner and I had the hurricane chicken dinner, (which did not include a dinner salad as the other... More

Was my first time here and it will definitely be my last. Visited at lunch time but ordered off of the dinner menu. First we ordered the Hot crab dip, it was awful, all we could taste was mustard. And lump crab? I don't think so. The crab was the cheap shredded kind. I have had hot crab dip all... More

We have our fav places to eat in Calabash, but last year we decided to give The Boundary House a chance and we stopped there for lunch. TERRIBLE SERVICE. And not the menu we expected. We ate and left and have no plans to return. There are many great places to eat in Calabash at very reasonable prices. Boundary House... More

Have dined here numerous times and are never disappointed. Tried the fried flounder for the first time and it was fantastic - two very large pieces. The ribs were good, but not exceptional. We had an appetizer (calamari) which was very good and quite enough for four. The Boundary House salad is the best - with the house dressing. We... More
