We went for the vibe--shanty shack chic on the intercoastal waterway--and we were pleasantly surprised by the blackened shrimp nachos, legit fish tacos, and a duck BLT (not something you see every day!). The craft beer selection was so-so...some of the local stuff was not...up to par, but we did find a couple winners as well. Staff were great. Go, sit outside, and enjoy!More

We went on taco Tuesday and it didn’t disappoint. Started with some Mexican corn that I’ve been wanting to try and it was delicious, I hope I can make it they good at home. The kids got tacos and loved them so much we ordered...a second round for them. Sitting outside with the view of the waterway was very nice. Our waitress was one of the best we’ve had anywhere, our 14 year old son even noticed how great she was and left an extra tip for her. This will be a place we come back to each year we visit and maybe another time this trip too.More

Not that the food is amazing, not that the decor is top notch, but if you’re looking for good food and good beer for a reasonable price it’s perfect. Our server was great, and the fish was crunchy and juicy. We went on “Taco Tuesday”...and the kids destroyed the tacos. We went to a much more expensive restaurant the night prior and we definitely enjoyed The Boathouse much more. We’ll be back the next time we’re in the area!More

I was visiting friends in the MB area, and their neighbor took us all here on a Sunday night last summer. Place was hopping. Enjoyed the live music. Can't recall how pricey the drinks were, but bartenders were on top of things. I'm going back...next time I get down that way.More

On a concierge’s recommendation, we visited the Boathouse Waterway (Intracoastal) Bar and Grill. It’s a little drive from the downtown high rises to the intracoastal waterway, where you can see all sorts of water traffic silently slip by. Well worth the trip! The Independent Republic...Brewing Company makes their craft beer in small batches (we had two different porters), which our waitress Melissa served followed by large portions of good food that arrived rapidly after we ordered it. All in a clean, relaxed environment which attracted a variety of customers. What’s not to like?More

This fun restaurant/bar was a perfect place to catch dinner and listen to live music. I had the grilled fried green tomato sandwich with pimento cheese and my husband had the jalapeño pimento cheese burger. We liked them both. The service was great at the...bar and on the floor. The staff at this place hustles ! It was a dreary rainy night and the venue was packed with a crowd of all ages to hear the band. I imagine in the summer it’s even more fun enjoying the waterfront location.More

The food and drinks were good and so was the service. We ate well for little money! It was not very crowded, either!
