“Great meal here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

After reading other reviews, we decided to try Boundary House, and went early (5:30). We were told there was a 15 minute wait, and they took us within that time. It was very crowded even at that time - but it is summer in the Grand Strand, after all! Our server was quick, and brought us our drinks promptly. She told us the specials, but did not really offer any other suggestions about the menu - the menu is surprisingly simple, not a vast one, but it had typical seafood choices, and also some chicken, beef, and pasta. It also had a few burgers and sandwiches for those who don't want a full meal. You can get the seafood grilled, fried, or broiled, which was nice. The salads were large, and you get a side - I got the 'sweet mashed potatoes,' a specialty of the house, and they were delicious - like Thanksgiving in July - candied sweet potatoes. Mmmm, good! A must try if you like those. All in all, a good visit. One note - the atmosphere is very noisy, not your romantic destination - but it was a good meal. We may go back again, maybe in the fall when it might be less crowded!

“7/22/14”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This is one happening place! It is a great place to eat and they have key lime pie candies! That are delicious:) The food was great, the hush puppies taste like fried dough from the fair and the salads come out with a delicious warm croissant. It was fabulous! I highly recommend it.

“Great family spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We tried The Boundary House for the first time this year on our family vacation. We made early dinner reservations at 430. The service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious. We will certainly go back again!

“Nice Low Key Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We really enjoyed this place. The lighting was low, the kitchen was open, service was very good, prices reasonable and the food was very good. Definitely great for couples and families. I'd definitely recommend it to friends. If you are looking for something different in Calabash rather than mounds of fried seafood, give the Boundary House a try.

“Baked potato soup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This is a great place for lunch. Haven't tried the dinner menu yet but I am sure that we will. The baked potato soup tasted like give me another bowl. Service was really good. Read the back of the menu. THe history of the place is really interesting. Kid friendly.
