Looking for a nice, basic, and a family atmosphere, without the added cost of looking over the ocean OR riverfront in downtown Wilmington? THIS is the place. A great selection of fresh seafood and other entrees, along with a huge selection of vegetable sides - all at a fair price.

My experience with Wilmington area restaurants has been the inability to be consistent. We eat out 3-4 times a week and I usually order the "catch of the day".because it's surprising how many sea-food restaurants serve frozen fish here in the port city. The flounder at the Boathouse has always been fresh, cooked with a light batter and served with hush puppies and fresh cold slaw. So far. so good.

We had such a great experience tonight! My nephew is Autistic and does not do well at busy restaurants unless we are sat fast and his food is ready almost immediately. We called ahead and requested both and had no problems at all! We were able to enjoy our meal, had a wonderful dinner and the service was great! Thanks guys for the great night out!

I love great seafood and this place is our new #1 place to go ! The menu includes dishes for landlubbers as well but the fishy fare is beyond expectation !! Portion size is generous, food is fresh, service is prompt, prices reasonable and atmosphere is wonderful. Several other restaurants have tried and failed in this location near the marina but this one is going to make it BIG !!! This owner knows how to make a good thing happen !!! Try it - you will NOT be disappointed !!!
