The boathouse is located right on the water and has a large selection of seafood. You can get it prepared the way you like... the salmon was great... someone in our party had crabcakes... liked them as well.... their specials are usually yummy... Even with reservations... often have to wait... it is crowded and loud... especially during the summer months... More

Went with our friend who are not seafood lovers like my husband and I. They got the pork chop and the steak which were outstanding! Perfectly prepared to the right temperature. I got the broiled seafood combo, which was very disappointing! Very small and tasteless. The shrimp were small and rubbery. The scallops were tender but had no flavor, and... More

We were on Isle of Palms doing some business and decided to wait out the traffic and go to the Happy Hour at The Boathouse. We went upstairs to take advantage of their awesome view of the ocean and the intracoastal leading up to the sunset. We were greeted by the sweetest bartender ever and she explained the HH prices...

Went to celebrate our parents 60th wedding anniversary. Had a reservation but waited 20 minutes for a table. Good seafood/fish selection on the menu but the restaurant was quite loud. Highly recommend the outdoor bar atop the restaurant. It has good sweeping views of Intracoastal, Ben Sawyer Bridge and the inlet, great place to see sunset.

We had a really nice time at the Boathouse. The food was excellent with a great assortment of local fish, and nice raw bar selections. On food, I would give the Boathouse very high marks. Maybe just a couple of nit picky points - we waited for nearly 10 minutes to be seated, even though we had a reservation and... More

Dinner with with an amazing view of ICW. Always one of my favorite places to eat when in the Low Country. Our server was a little slow with bringing drinks and getting our orders straight. Blackened Scallops were delish and red rice and collards are always my favorite sides!

Oh my goodness, the food here is delicious! I had never tried shrimp and grits, so I decided to take the plunge when our waiter said it was his favorite thing. I was NOT disappointed. I loved them! Succulent shrimp, slices of sausage, creamy grits covered with peppers and a delicious spicy gravy. Oh yes. Called ahead for reservations which... More

My husband and I went there with our two teenagers for dinner. We liked that it was casual, yet still had great food and service.

We were there with a party of 8 , and had to sit at 2 tables, but that was alright. We had 2 different servers. One table got their food very quickly, but the other table was well over 30 minutes. We all had some type of fish and the reviews were mixed--some of the fish were very dry, while... More
