Being a coastal town, you would think that seafood restaurants would be plentiful, but that is not the case. The Boathouse is a casual restaurant, that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't let that fool you. If you want good, fresh, fried seafood with your choice of 2 sides, make sure you give them a try. They have a limited wine and beer list, and I think they also serve mixed drinks. The prices are reasonable. They also offer daily specials such as meatloaf and 2 sides for a very reasonable price. Most sides are homemade. This is not a fancy place. Plastic tablecloths and not so polished wait staff are the only items keeping this restaurant from getting an excellent.

We were looking for good old fashioned seafood in a comfortable atmosphere without all the 'fu fu" and expensive extras. We decided to give this place a try. I had the flounder and shrimp special complete with two sides. It was very lightly breaded and fried to perfection. The hushpuppies were good as were the sides of potato, squash and okra. The pork chops were well prepared as well. The wait staff was friendly and kept our drinks full. I would return again.

Nice new format inside, on Oleander near the bridge at Bradley Creek. I love the breakfasts here!
