Some friends and I ate here and it was amazing! They have the best scallops I've ever had and the filet was incredible. The salads were also delicious. It was expensive but everyone deserves a treat once in awhile.

This is a very nice restaurant. Done completely in wood on the inside, it can be a bit noisy when it's a full house but the food makes it worth while. I had one of the best crab cakes I ever ate and their potato soup is a must try. The service is quick and friendly. Reservations must be made... More

We go to the Boundary House 2 or 3 times a year on average and have never been disappointed. Most recently we went on a Monday night (in April) and the place was packed with a line waiting to get in. Many golfers, obviously, but also couples with children. Dishes we ordered included the Calabash Gumbo, grilled flounder with sweet... More

We always start and end our stay in Calabash with visits to the Boundary House. And it is the salad that keeps us coming back! Fresh, tasty and the house dressing is one of a kind! You have to have the salad! Everything is great so choose any entree. Seafood is wonderful - especially the shrimps and oysters. Steaks are... More

my friends and I were there last November (2014) and I was there again last week. I was surprised to see the same employee again that I saw the last time. He was wearing a Chef's jacket and was out in the parking lot running around with his underwear down to his ankles and some lady was in a car... More

Boundary House has it all in Calabash - great seafood, ambience and a great selection of domestic, craft and imported beers.

I have been to the Boundary House many times and I am never disappointed. While nothing is spectacular, everything is very good. The service, food, cleanliness - they know how to run a restaurant. Very good place for lunch or dinner.
