We tried several seafood restaurants on HHI during this vacation. It was recommended by a local at another restaurant (The Plantation Cafe in Bluffton). The Boathouse has the best seafood on HHI!. The menu has more seafood selections that any we've been too. I had the seafood stew and my partner had the king crab legs. For appetizers we had fresh oysters and a sashimi platter. You have to go early because the wait for a table averages 2-2.5 hr. Luckily we were seated in 30 mins. The staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was very relaxing. This is were the locals go.

This was our favorite restaurant on the island. It was worth every cent for every bite. Amazing & flavorful. I had the petite shrimp and grits. My husband had the whole flounder and the seafood chowder. Our server was wonderful she even found out how they make the key lime pie since I have a nut allergy. I'm glad she did.it was safe and it was fantastic! We were disappointed it was our last night in town. Great atmosphere! We will be back!

Great menu with salads, fish, chicken and steak. Very crowded during busy season so go early. Beautiful sunset viewing.
