After sitting at a table at the shrimp factory being ignored for a bit we decided to leave and ran into this place. What a difference!! Server was super friendly, food was great and view was nice. Ribeye was perfectly seasoned and cooked, swordfish was really good and fried green tomatoes were yummy as well. Try the peach sangria....awesome!

“Nice place”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Boar's Head Grill is in the heart of the tourist district. We had a very nice lunch, the staff was friendly. I try to stay away from the more touristy locations, but this one is ok.

“Cool atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Boar's Head is right on the river and has a few tables that look out, but the heavy-beamed dark brick interior is what makes this place cool. We had a crab cake sandwich and fish and grits, both very tasty and not greasy. Also had a plate of peel and eat shrimp in a really flavorful boil. Service was great, very attentive.

“Good food on River Street”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Went to the Boar's Head with a group of nine. No problem - they had a table fixed up for nine in less that 5 minutes. A nice selection of choices on the menu literally for anyone's taste - we had children along and they all seemed to enjoy what they ordered! Service was great and the prices were very reasonable. It's up an incline and a few stairs from the street but I am glad we found it. Give it a try, I'm sure you will like it.

“Good find”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We ran in there to avoid a surprise rain shower. Food was good & staff very friendly. Very old building with lots of history. Great location.
