We got here just before sunset and sat out on the terrace....superb view. The fried seafood trio was better than any I've had recently in Charleston. The shrimp, scallops, and flounder were perfectly cooked...flaky, zero grease, melt in your mouth perfection. Our waiter Dennis heard we had been out fishing all day and his beverage service was world class speedy!! Dennis made the evening perfect. This place is a little out of the way but it is well worth the trip from any HHI or Beaufort location. One of our favorite spots and we will definitely return.

Really enjoyed the seafood and the informal atmosphere of the restaurant where most of the tables are outside. Rather than ordering dinners we opted to order an assortment of different seafood: a pound of boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce, a small order of fried oysters, some oysters on the half shell, some French fries.......you get the idea! This is a very busy place where they know how to bring on the food and drinks. We liked it.

Our server Mackenzie made us feel welcome form the start was helpful with suggestions and answered all questions. The low country boil was full of shrimp, potaoes were a bit under cooked and the corn overcooked but I was so full of shrimp it did not matter. The special flounder almondine was very nicely prepared and the fresh green beans were excellent Instead of dessert we opted for a basket of hush puppies with honey butter with our meal, I am glad we did they were excellent. Our pitcher of a rum punch was not overly full of ice rather they brought two glasses with ice in them too start us off.

Everyone knows a Salty Dog, but Skull Creek Boathouse is a new must do. Don't worry about wait, grab an adirondack chair and watch sunset while enjoying a drink from one of several bars. Service was solid, sushi was good, great chowder, crab cakes and grouper dishes. 12 people at our table and no complaints, what better recommendation!
