The Boathouse is one of my favorite restuarants in the Charleston area. The seafood is always fresh and superbly prepared. The side dishes are southern favorites such as collard greens, grits, mashed potatoes. They have a varied menu which will more than satisfy any appetite. Their prices are moderately expensive but the portions are large and the food is absolutely delicious. The restaurant is located on the river so request a window seat facing the water. The beach is directly across the street from the restaurant. Reservations are recommended on the weekends because they stay pretty busy.
