“Waterfront Hilton Head Dining at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you are looking for good food, great waterfront views in a relaxed environment, this is hard to beat. We frequently are here for late lunch sitting in the waterfront bar area. The sea food chowder is amazing.

“long waits”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The average wait is awful. Expect an hour to an hour and a half off season and worse during the season. Food is descent but not great. View is great outside if you don't mind waiting a long time. They don't take reservations

“A place you don't want to miss while in Hilton Head”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Always busy which is the sign of a good restaurant. Great drinks, huge menu with many items you won't find elsewhere on the island, beautiful scenery all around you, live music with a great outdoor bar. The Boat House will be among the most memorable restaurants of your vacation.
