A visit to the Boundary House is a must when we make our annual visit to OIB. Fantastic food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. Expect a wait if you arrive at prime dinner time, but well worth the wait. No matter how busy they might be, we've never had bad service or felt rushed. Servers are very knowledgeable about menu items... More

I should start by saying I am a local NC native resident and eat seafood on a regular basis. The food here is above average compared to most local places in Brunswick county. The best part of our visit last night was our server Debbie. She has a great personality and did a nice job. She really seemed to enjoy... More

Ijame was our waiter. He was a wonderful person. Very personable and efficient. Outstanding. I have always been pleased with the wait staff at the Boundary House. But, Ijame had that extra personality that made the evening enjoyable. Thumbs up to Ijame.

If you're in the Myrtle area and crave real seafood, head to Calabash for a a guaranteed great meal. Starter salads were very good, perhaps a little lite on the dressing, mains were excellent quality and quantity.

We were a party of 6 and stopped in for lunch after shopping next door. The lunch specials were brought quickly. Everything tasted very good, and the service was also very good. I would stop in again next year.

A visiting relative wanted to return to the Boundary House this week, and we were perfectly willing to go along for dinner. We dine there 4 or 5 times per year, and have never been disappointed. Portions are very generous and the quality is top notch. We had the pork chop, friend oysters, and baby back ribs. Fantastic as always.... More

We were visiting friends in southeastern NC and they took us to their favorite restaurant, The Boundary House. It soon became obvious why they liked it so much. Their house salad was huge and full of different ingredients. Just as promised by our friends. For $8.95 we had a choice of chicken broccoli pasta, chicken parm or taco salad. My... More

Visited this restaurant twice last week for dinner. We have eaten here before and is always our favorite when we are in the area. The wait staff is always attentive. The food is always very good and prepared as you wish. We like the variety of food selections and you can get most seafood items prepared several different ways.

Been looking for a great steak at the beach and with apologies to both Chuck's in Myrtle Beach and Bovines at Murrells Inlet, I have found it. The Boundary House is far and above the best at the beach and ranks as one of the best I've had anywhere. When you couple that with great service, you have a meal... More
