“Excellent food, but busy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My family has been vacationing in Sunset Beach/Calabash for over 20 years and we were so excited when the Boundary House opened because it offers food that isn't the "Calabash-style" seafood that seems to be served a lot in that area. They have a wide selection to choose from and their House Salad with the House dressing is a must (comes with the best croissant). Portions are plentiful. Downside.....it is a noisy, busy restaurant. We had to wait an hour to be seated (we arrived around 5:15 on a Monday). But it was worth the wait and we will return during next years vacation.

“Lunch was good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We went for lunch and it was suggested that we try the mile high BLT. It was good, but messy. The bacon on it was very good quality and there was a lot of it. I think there was probably a half pound at least. I just couldn't keep mine together so decided to eat the second half with a fork, that worked fine. We did have to ask twice for our extra condiments, which should not happen since the place was not packed at all

“Nice drive for something different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We were told about the Boundary House from several people so we drove from North Myrtle to Calabash. The restaurant itself is nice, lots of wood and nice bar. I had a coupon from Facebook/online and the manager would not honor it bc it was not printed. It was for cheesy fries for goodness sake. The chicken tenders is a huge meal even my husband couldn't finish. We have a nut allergy and we told the waitress up front but when the salads were delivered there was uncertainty by the food deliverers and some switching around so we asked for a new salad with no nuts. The salads are good with ground ham and bacon and eggs and a house dressing of honey mustard and warm bacon. We had chicken tenders, blackened shrimp, crab cakes, and oysters at our table of 7. The waitress brought only one check bc she didn't ask how it was to be divided. After that was corrected, the bill came back for 3 dollar charges for 2 drinks which per the kids menu are included with kids meals. Just watch out for extra charges and print out your free appetizer coupons bc the manager will not accept it on your cel. Would go back.
