Excellent food, welcoming atmosphere, friendly efficient service! Have the house salad with the house dressing and croissants. The scallops are a sure thing -delicious every time! Leave room for the bread pudding for dessert.... Mmmm! Go early if you want to beat the wait.

This was one of our favorites while on our week long vacation in Sunset Beach. I loved the cheddar mashed potatoes and my 7-year old can't stop talking about the croissants. It gets busy, so make a reservation.

Highly recommend setting a reservation. But you can shop at Callahan's while waiting. Service was fantastic! Mariah was awesome! Food was out of this world! Flounder was ginormous, snapper was tender, pesto salmon was incredible!! Can't wait to come back!

Our family stayed in North Myrtle Beach and Calabash was only 12 miles north. The wait for the Boundary House was close to an hour, but the gift shop beside it was an excellent place to enjoy the wait. The service was excellent and extremely nice. Food is fresh- would recommend the house salad and seafood entrees.

Family celebration meal with 7 people at a big table on a busy night. The regular server was momentarily overwhelmed with several large tables at the same time, so the general manager, Rey, stepped in and helped out with our table. He was GREAT! Couldn't have had a more knowledgeable, kind, and gracious host. The meal was properly staged with... More

We had a big group (nine) and went for Sunday brunch. We were able to walk right in without a wait, which was wonderful. The food was okay, not truly remarkable or memorable. The crab dip appetizer was definitely a highlight, and the staff was nice.

We had previous reservations for 12. I highly recommend this for this restaurant. Waitstaff is top notch, food is perfect. All food arrived hot, correct, and abundant.There is a small bar for those that are waiting. It seemed that everyone in N.C. was trying to eat there.

We had a party if 13 attend for my fathers birthday. Our 6 year old son packs his lunch due to life threatening food allergies. We like to keep it safe and bring in his meal from home to ensure we know all ingredients and there is no reason to fear cross contamination. The other 12 in our party ordered... More
