My friends and I went to this place on a whim and had a fantastic time. We had no reservations, and the hostess told us there was a 45 minute wait, so we could go to the bar on the rooftop or to the bar at the back of the restaurant where they served a full menu. We opted for... More

The service was great, you can see dolphins around in the evening in summer, they have indoor and outdoor service. The food is delicious.

My wife and I went to the restaurant for my wife's birthday. As other reviews stated, restaurant was very tight and cramped. Servers had time running into one another and asking guests to move their chairs up. My wife and I both ordered their local grilled fish and it wasn't even hot - luke warm and rubbery. . . even...

We had a party of 12, adults & children. Some of the adults had drinks on the rooftop bar first, service very prompt and great view of inland waterway. We met up with the rest of party for dinner. Waitress was great . Food was very good and service prompt. Everyone was happy with their choices, there were raves about... More

I laugh reading some of these reviews. This is a seafood restaurant, specializing in local South Carolina seafood. It is not meant to be fancy and if you ordered Alaskan King Crabs or Maine Lobster and were disappointed...I have no sympathy for you. For those of us that love fresh, LOCAL, Southern seafood, the Boathouse will not disappoint. The fried... More

Just returned from yet another great Boathouse experience. Time after time it always delivers. Simple, fresh, yet elegant and flavor-filled cuisine. (I had a wonderful blackened tuna - everyone else in our party raved about their meals - mussels, swordfish, scallops, lobster, steak and the to-die-for mac and cheese). Abundant choices. Great drinks and draft beer selection. Friendly, southern service... More

My wife and daughter loved it. I am not a sea food person. The seafood was great and the chicken was acceptable

Great view of sunset. I was disappointed in food especially for the price. My fish was rubbery. I got it because of the special sauce and I think they gave me 1 teaspoon of it. Bread doesn't even come with the meal. Good service though.

Excellent place to eat. The food was fantastic and service super. The only major drawback is that it's very very very tight in the dinning area. Even the staff has problems getting around. The tables extremely close. For a four star restaurant the dinning room is more like two star. I would only go for the food,if I had no... More

Dined here with 6 adults and 3 kids. Server was great with the dynamics of 6 year olds to 82 year olds. Food was a bit slow to arrive and I have to say fairly average but tasty. Portions for calimari app and hush puppie app were quite small for the portions, and it is South Carolina, where most people... More
