The Boathouse was recommended by our hosts while we were vacationing in Wrightsville Beach last week. Dinner was wonderful, & reasonably priced. Our family of 5 had a great dinner for under $100. The restaurant has a homey, cozy atmosphere. It was a great evening, and we plan to return next year.

This was our first visit. The seafood was well prepared and the sides were tasty. Our server was prompt and attentive throughout dinner. A great experience - we will definitely be back!!!

We found this place because it was reasonably close to the beach and I was looking for simple (nothing fancy) seafood. Glad we found it! The food was great, the portions were huge and it didn't break the bank to pay the bill.
The restaurant is housed in an old Hardees fast food restaurant (I asked) and the interior is surprising complete with a small bar in the rear and plenty of seating. The staff were all friendly and the owner/manager was on hand checking to see that everyone was happy with their meals. It seemed to be a lot of locals eating there on the weekday evening which is normally a good sign in a restaurant.
I would definitely eat there again.

Wanted a quick seafood lunch and this place looked inviting. I had the crab sandwich from the lunch menu and my wife and daughter shared a mahi sandwich. Both were served quick and fresh. Sweet tea was just right also. Overall a good stop I would eat at again.

This place had great seafood for a great price. We were seated quickly, the staff was nice and we had our food within 15 minutes. We had went for lunch on Sunday and the restaurant was very busy.
