“Would love to go back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Just moved down to Shallotte and drove down to Calabash off-season, the Boundary House was one of the few places open. It's a very cool building and casually elegant. The staff was friendly and attentive. You would be satisfied with a salad and small dish if you aren't starving. The salad came with a croissant on the side. The entree portions are very large and could feed two people, but everything was delicious, so we took home leftovers. I got the house cabernet, but it wasn't anything special. I would absolutely go back.

“Excellent menu..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great menu featuring a wonderful lunch menu. House salads w/house dressing are a favorite... Something for everyone on the menu.... BBQ sandwich is good as are the chicken fingers... Everything is great actually...Service is good.

“Always consistent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We have eaten here a number of times over the last several years. Boundary House salad is excellent- alone or with plump oysters or salmon. Blackened or grilled salmon very tasty. Food comes fast considering it has always been crowded on the nights we have gone. You can sit at the bar or tables around without waiting for a table from hostess. Friendly staff, great service. Food always consistent. Wil keep returning.

“Came for the food, but got so much more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I visited the Boundary House after a very long drive cross country-we had been driving for about a week and finally arrived in North Carolina. During our five day road-trip you can only imagine how many times we dined out...some good and others we won't mention. But it wasn't until we finally reached our destination that we had the best experience of them all (even better than our usual top choices at home in Wyoming).
After finally making it to our family vacation home in N.C. we were too tired to even think about grocery shopping or cooking; so we randomly chose the Boundary House for dinner...only wish every decision could turn out to be so good. We sat at the bar and the bartender (Dana) instantly made us feel welcome and at home-what a great feeling considering how far we were from home! She shared with us some of the nights specials and some of her favorites. We went with one of her suggestions and were blown away by the blackend scallops! So Good! We also ordered the oysters rockefeller and for someone who orders those on a regular basis I can honestly say they were the best I've ever had- ANYWHERE! The two other bartenders working(Don and Paul) were both very nice and attentive. The three of them not only worked well together but seemed to be enjoying being at work.
Great food and great service! Can't wait to return!

“Hostess was rude.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Went for lunch. The quiche and house salad with the house dressing is always the best choice. Since the hostess told us there was a 10 to 15 minute wait, we decided to eat in the bar area. We sat down and she brought us menus but not the lunch menus. She wanted to be rid of us. On the other hand our waitress was wonderful. good was hot, tasty, and she refilled our beverages without us asking. Our issue was the short brunette gal with brown rim glasses that needs to go.
