Start off with a drink on the rooftop bar watching the pelicans and dolphins. The dinners were excellent. The four of us had different seafood dishes and they were all delicious. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Nice drive out there from Mt. Pleasant.

The food and service was very good. Seafood was very fresh, no complaints! I would recommend this restaurant for a casual low key meal.

My husband and I went for Sunday brunch. Love the views and location right between Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms. The food was good with reasonable prices. I did think the alcoholic drinks were a bit over priced. Server was friendly and attentive.

Come here at sunset to enjoy a drink and an appetizer on the balcony. The sunset views cannot be beat! Stay for dinner, which will not disappoint.

We always eat here when on the Isle of Palms, the fresh oysters and fish as well as the shrimp and grits are some of our favorites.

My husband and I haven't been to the Boathouse in about 10 years but decided to take an out of town guest there because I remembered the great view. We had a great time. The service was attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. We had the special which was crab cake stuffed flounder. It was cooked to perfection... More
