Great food and atmosphere. The outside deck and bar are a great place to relax and enjoy the river view. We had the crab cakes and red snapper. The crab cakes were the best. The atmosphere is worth the price alone, lots of people. We went on a Tuesday night and it was packed. A little hard to find, it's... More

Guests in town wanted to go to the boathouse, so we agreed even though we anticipated a very long wait for our party of seven. Actually, our wait was less than 10 minutes, and once seated we had excellent service from our waiter, Rick. He took very good care of us and made an already great meal even better. Well... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by my fellow mommies, and it did not disappoint! The outdoor seating area is great; the tables are well spaced, there are fans blowing in every direction plus nice lights to give a great relaxing "back door" feel. The lego table and sand box was a huge hit for my 2 year old; it kept... More

Best sushi on the creek. Love sitting outside watching the boats and having a drink. Kids menu is limited but they have great fruit drinks.

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch overlooking the marina. The food was good and fairly priced. We had mahi mahi tacos and a grilled shrimp salad. Both were very well done. The main reason for eating here is the lovely view over the water. We ate on the patio. The only down side was that a machine was taking boats out... More

After being recommended by someone that lives on Hilton Head, we decided to try The Skull Creek Boathouse. We were so glad that we did. We went early for the Sunset Dinner. This is a great value for what you get -- choice of soup or salad, entrée and beverage -- for $15.75. I chose the gumbo and my husband... More

During a week in Hilton Head we ate there twice!! Loved the early bird special 4:45-5:45 and then stay for a drink at the outside bar. We got a huge plate of broiled seafood, drink and salad for that price. Great waitress named Kelsie.

Huge menu, great location/view. Very simple atmosphere. Go Early! Our first try was a Wed at 6:30 pm, 90 min wait. Tried again on Friday at 5pm, no wait. Huge wait when we left. They tell us "in-season" it's not uncommon for a 3-hr. wait. We met the partner Rob and he filled us in on their history. Great Food!... More
