“two out of two times.. great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

we've been here twice now.. once with Tara and the other with Rick for our servers and both were wonderful.. the seafood is great and it's tough to find a good seafood spot down here where everything isn't fried. They are a busy place and we usually prefer to eat outside so we can bring the dogs and have them sit with us. plan to allow at least 30+ minutes to get a table.. love the tuna 3 ways and the flounder almandine.. big enough to share.

“service above and beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

As a previous guest i was once again blown away by the food ( Blackened catfish, green beans, and savannah rice) but most noteably the COMBO---The combo being Edwina and Andy the two team players behind the bar that day. They worked a busy crowd with speed, accuracy,efficiency and most notably super hospitality. Great job.

“Great times!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

First time to Hilton Head and we came during a cold front. Weather was in the high 50's but with the heaters at the bar outside we were able to have a Very Happy "Happy Hour"!! Peal and eat shrimp, fish and chips and rum topped Corona. Yum!! We're planning on returning this summer and will most definitely return to The Skull Creek Boathouse to see Jimmy. He was the best!!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

My husband and I ate here on a Saturday evening when the weather was gorgeous. It was very busy, but our wait passed quickly with the many things to do to stay occupied. Outside bar, dock, and views just to name a few.

Our waiter, Rick, was great. He was friendly, informative, and attentive. We will definitely be going back sometime soon.
