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.

Had dinner here on a Friday night with friends. It was very crowded and noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation. The food was good and it has a nice view (although it was too dark to enjoy it when we were there). Our server was not very friendly but he was adequate. The prices were high.but normal for that area. Portion sizes are generous. I had the grilled shrimp and it was delicious. I'd go back but maybe lunch would be more enjoyable.

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.

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!

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.
