Great atmosphere - good service - skip the crab cakes

Reed was a terrific waiter and the sangria was to die for - we had a coupon for the free cheese fries (google it) and OMG ... quite yummy!! One person in our party had the fried oysters and said they were excellent but 2 of us had the crab cakes and we both left them on the plate ...... read more

My husband and I ate dinner at the Boundary house, His entry the Surf and Turf with scallops, and I the whiskey chicken. The food was exceptional fresh, flavorful, and delicious. Uber honey glazed croissants served with the salad. My husband raved about the scallops and my grilled chicken surprisingly good. Our waitress, Sharon was intelligent and great to work... More

My husband and I went for an early dinner at the Boundary House and we are going again before we go home!!! The meal was outstanding, beginning with the best dinner salad I have ever had. The service was like watching a well oiled machine. Everyone knew their jobs and did it with precision. Our server Mariah was well informed,... More

When busy, this place is very noisy. I think it's overpriced, but there are people who like the place. Menu is fairly large. Worth a try to see if it's your cup of tea. Similar to chain restaurants.

The shrimp/oyster po' boys were good, as was the prime rib sandwich. The monte cristo was not bad but had too much breading. The hot crab dip appetizer was nice but actually had a little too much cheese (something I never thought I'd say).

Boundary House has delicious meals and good service. The only drawback is tht is noisy. We returned twice in a week.

My family and I made a 7:30 reservation on Friday night. We were greeted and sat right away, which was really the only thing that went right that night. Our server greeted us and brought us our drinks prominently, but our first course salads came out with no dressing on my wife and daughters Caesar salads. Then we were disappointed... More
