Sunset on the Roof

We stopped here and went to the roof bar/lounge to watch the sunset. We only had drinks and appetizers. It was beautiful but very windy. Prices for our selections were reasonable.

We always make it a point to stop here once per vacation. Selection of seafood is excellent (and fresh) and the staff are quite helpful in terms of describing the different types of seafood. Finally starting to get some craft beers. Love the setting as well.

I usually never review anyplace I go, but after reading the reviews about the general manager, Colleen, I felt I had to respond. I have managed restaurants in the past and am tired of people with their one sided views and blasting it all over the internet. I was actually sitting at the bar when the "so called " loud... More

I was at the Boathouse this evening for what I hoped to be a great first experience from a place that came highly recommended by many. We were seated near a table with two couples with two young kids with them. I was shocked at the commotion coming from their table. I thought I was at a restaurant, not a... More

Horrible experience. Our family of 15 goes to The Boathouse every summer when we get together for a week at the beach. There were 2 couples with children behind us that were so drunk and loud. They were using foul language and we spoke with the general manager, Colleen. Colleen said she had not heard anything out of line (which... More

The rooftop bar is spectacular, drinks were very good. Service was very friendly and attentive, but entrees took a very long time to come. I ordered the clam pasta. The linguine was broken up, almost chopped, and it was overcooked unto paste. I was hungry and it tasted fine, and this may be typical to prepare linguine with clans this... More

The view & atmosphere are very nice & the food was pretty good. Not anything to really brag about but just pretty good however our service was terrible which was quite disappointing. Our server, Hector, focused his attention completely on the table next to us so much so that it was like a slap in the face & I am... More

My family has been going to the IOP for more than 12 years and have had a meal at the Boathouse on every visit. While pricey, we've had some of our better seafood experiences at the Boathouse. A few of our favorites include the red snapper, seafood combination, steak and lobster, wreck, yellowfin tuna, crab cake stuffed flounder and gouda... More

Thought this was going to be one of our better meals in the Charleston area, but the food was just average. Way overpriced, even for a tourist district. We won't be coming back.
