Really good food, reasonable prices, and great service. Our server Kris was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. She asked us if we had been there before and we said no, so she walked us through the menu, answered all of our questions, and then offered recommendations based on our preferences. She took the time and put forth effort to ensure we... More

We had three adults and four kids. Collectively we tried: the special ( broiled fish with shrimp and Bay sauce on top), broiled scallops, fried oysters and shrimp, hush puppies and coleslaw, baked potato and fries. Great food. Scallops were perfectly cooked and oh so tender. The broiled fish was so delicate and light that everyone wanted a bite. Coleslaw... More

We went with our 10 month old son and had a great experience. Diana waited on us and made us feel welcome and well taken care of. She even brought out a snack for the little guy to help keep him occupied before the rest of the food came out. The broiled scallops were awesome and my husband really enjoyed... More

Boondocks has gone through some changes but hopefully it is moving forward in a positive way. The food was better than average but a fried flounder basket is hard to rate. Cole slaw was tasteless and needs improvement, but the thing that will make us give it another try was our waitress, Chelsea. She was excellent and so endearing. I... More

Came in with a few friends after a beach weekend. Full service bar, and great service, I think was Molly?, food was exactly what we were looking for. Had the shrimp & grits, fried platter, and a great ribeye for the price. Place is clean and employees very accommodating. Will definitely come back next year..
