Reviewed April 15, 2014

Always busy which is the sign of a good restaurant. Great drinks, huge menu with many items you won't find elsewhere on the island, beautiful scenery all around you, live music with a great outdoor bar. The Boat House will be among the most memorable restaurants of your vacation.

“Best of Hilton Head”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Spent 7 days in Hilton Head and ate out every night. Skull Creek was the best, the others were good but Skull Creek was No.1 - After we Valet the car the bar was our first stop for an Ice cold draft and a Lobster Sushi roll that was incredable! that set us up for what was to come. We made our way out to a window seat watching the sun set, singer entertaining the outside crowd while we dug into Apps and a great entree. We had seafood all around. Hot, delicious and a plenty. Our waitress was attentive, friendly and spot on with our needs. We have placed this tops on our list for our next HHI Visit.

“Great views on the dock!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is the spot on the island for plenty of good basic food, a crowded atmosphere but great view of Skull Creek. Service is excellent and the staff tend to be quite jovial. Plan to park next door as this location is a local's favorite
