I highly recommend Skull Creek Boathouse as a great seafood restaurant with a fun atmosphere. The restaurant has both inside and outside seating with a great view of docks and the surrounding water / land. Menu was quite extensive with numerous fish entrees prepared as fried, grilled, and broiled. Also featured was the ability to group seafoods and make your own entrée. Our group ordered a broiled seafood platter, surf and turf(scallops and strip steak), and five sushi rolls (shared by two people). I had the surf and turf. Both were quite good; even the steak (for a seafood restaurant it was definitely above average!) Food was exceptional. Service was timely from both a server and kitchen perspective.
We ate at Skull Creek on a Friday night. Very busy. Wait time when we got there at 7:30 was 1 1/2 hours. Fortunately, our concierge was able to get reservations for 7:30 (reservations aren't accepted otherwise!!). Our table was ready when we arrived - no wait time at all!!

We sat outside for dinner and we were attacked by flies literally! Our dinner was totally ruined and we couldn't leave soon enough. The manager a gave us an apology with "most people like to eat outside". He didn't offer anything to accommodate us. There were 11 in our party and not all of us finished our food. Half of us liked the food and others thought it was average. My oysters on the half shell were sloppily prepared but tasted good. My broiled platter was covered in a cream sauce. I did not like it. Photo of flies attached.

Super busy place with a great view. Our server Rick was very knowledgeable and easily helped us through the menu. You should have a site called rickadvisor. :-)

Food is average, but the real treat is watching the folks put boats in the water out of their storage unit - fascinating.

My husband and i had dinner at this restaurant on Thursday night. I ordered steak which was not the best. It was like a steak from Golden Coral. My husband had shrimp and it was acceptable. Lots of people and the wait was one hour. Not worth the price or wait. Steak is definitely not the thing to order. The restaurant did provide stand up sand boxes for children to play during their wait.
