“Our favorite on Hilton Head Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Loved Skull Creek Boathouse.....wonderful seafood.....excellent menu and service. Have eaten here on several occasions and have always been pleased. Very busy, but food arrived hot and really quite quickly. Sit back and enjoy the outdoor patio and the view. This is one of our favorites on the island.

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

My husband and I ate here on a Saturday night. There was no wait. We were seated immediately and brought water as we were perusing the menu. My husband ordered an Apple Pie Sangria which was delicious. We ordered hushpuppies with spiced butter for our appetizer and they brought a basket of Portuguese cornbread (Broa) that were both perfect. I ordered a one pound Lobster served with boiled corn and red potatoes and drawn butter. They were perfection. The hubs ordered fried shrimp and catfish with fries. Overall, we had great service and great food. We really enjoyed our experience.

Had out of town guests and took them here. Everyone had fish of some kind. Sushi was not that good. Food was all right, but not as goodas other places we have eaten fish.

“Great place for a happy hour sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We went here because I read it was a good place to see the sunset. What a great surprise that it was also happy hour! The happy hour specials were good. All of the food we had was tasty, but the Tuna 3 ways was amazing. Would definitely go back again if in the area!
