“Only Seafood stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

My husband and I attempted The Boathouse twice and it was over an hour wait. The belly does not wait that long. So we made a reservation for the following night. We were sat by the windows. Our server was Michael and he was helpful with the menu and friendly. I ordered the crab cakes and my husband ordered the broiled seafood platter. We both cleaned our plates and will make this our only seafood stop next time.

“Can't wait to return!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Our family just moved in the area last fall. We have eaten at a few of the Serg restaurants and have enjoyed them each. Saturday (1/25) we visited The Skull Creek Boathouse and we were surprised at how busy it was during this time of year. My wife mentioned the back patio she saw and wanted to check it out. The heaters out there made it feel like you were in a cozy cabin. (As it was chilly and windy that night). We were approached by a young lady named Coral. She offered to clear off a table and bring us some menus. She was very knowledgable of the menu and answered any questions we had. My wife had the broiled seafood platter and kept raving at how well prepared it all was. I had the chopped creole Cobb salad and ate everything out of that bowl. Hats off to the Chef for the wonderful meal. We can't wait to return and enjoy all the great aspects of the place!!

“Great food, great atmosphere, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed the best ceviche appetizer and a great dinner at the bar at Scull Creek Boathouse! Most often, we enjoy sitting at the bar because we love that casual environment, the activity, and the conversation that usually takes place with the bartenders and other patrons. Well, we were not disappointed the evening we were there! Amanda and Wendy were on deck behind the bar and took such good care of us! It was our first visit to Scull Creek while on vacation at Hilton Head, and we just wished we lived closer to enjoy this great place more often. Our recommendation - take a seat at the bar for dinner the next time you visit! You won't be disappointed!
