Went on a winter Sunday. Good bar food and football on big screens. Looks like a fun place to come back to during summer when they have outdoor concerts.

We love the Boathouse for the casual atmosphere, great food and terrific service. If you have a special request the staff is always willing to accommodate. All you have to do is ask. They have terrific wings, chicken tenders, salads, etc. During NFL Sundays they have special pricing on wings and tacos. If the weather is nice, there is plenty... More

The food here is very good. We have visited the Boathouse each time we have visited relatives in Myrtle Beach. Like other reviews, need to coax wait staff to get service. It is very plain and simple inside but that's okay for me because when I am on vacation that is most times how I like to dine. Nice view... More

It takes a village to get service in the dining room here. We were at our table for 15 minutes before finally approaching the bar telling them we need a server. As usual once you get a server things go fine. The food is good. Just really bad service.

Blackened Shrimp Nachos are amazing! The shrimp were cooked perfectly and the tortilla chips were so fresh and delicious! All appetizers are half price during Happy Hour. Burgers are so so, there are much better burger places in the area. The Chef's Salad was a big hit with one of the diners and so was the Turkey Reuben. The view... More

If you're ever in Myrtle Beach on a Sunday, during the Summer, and want to hang with the locals. This is the place to be. Sunday Funday!!!! Boathouse has FREE summer concerts (reggae, country, hip hop, alternative, etc). If you're hungry, please try the fish tacos and the blackend shrimp nachos! They are my favorite.

Got to the parking lot and made a U-turn. Definitely not a family place. A true"dive". Nothing more to say...how anyone would recommend this place is beyond me!!!
