“Great food with a water view”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Spring and summer you can have lunch outside and watch the water. Winter and late fall, only dinner is servced.

The food is awesome, although a little pricey, service is always good.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

My husband and I were on a quick weekend getaway to IOP. We weren't interested in the hustle and bustle in downtown Charleston, so we opted to stay on IOP. Stumbled upon the boathouse, and made a reservation. I enjoyed the Parmesan crusted Tilapia, with a side of rice and collard greens. This southern girl loves her greens... but never had any better than the boathouse! Can't wait to go back!

“Fresh fresh fresh!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Scallops were cooked perfectly, and delicious. This place has earned it's great reputation. Just about anyone we asked for a seafood restaurant recommendation told us to go here. Stone ground grits are dreamy. Service was great - even though we came in about half an hour before closing.

“Fresh Seafood Haven”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Local Fresh Seafood is served in dishes that enhance all flavors. Their shrimp are top rate. I had the seafood Fettuccini which had fresh shrimp,real cream sauce, scallops and fish which was very good. My wife had grilled shrimp which was great. Service is very good and the wine list is reasonable priced good wines.

“very good shrimp and grits...”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I had the shrimp and grits which was very good, slightly spicy. Nice ambiance but the tables are too close together. I'm glad I was there on a weeknight.... fairly late. It would have been loud if busy! I would like to come back and have cocktails on the upper deck, which has an awesome view of the intracoastal and maybe the ocean....? I will be back but not during peak times.
