We had a gorgeous day to dine outside. Views were lovely and we enjoyed watching them move boats. Would definitely go back again.

The Skull Creek Boathouse is a must stop for visitors and residents of Hilton Head for lunch or dinner. This is a SURG group restaurant and in the winter they have BOGO. Every meal is great and the service comes with a smile.More

Yes, of course. Our full menu is available at both bars, and it's actually first come first serve. So, it's a great way to avoid the wait. Thanks.

Glad to hear you enjoyed! The brand is Wampler, it's delicious. We get it through our local provider. Not quite positive if it's available in stores locally, but we hope you can find it. Hope to see you soon!
