Fantastic Valentine's Day dinner on the water! We had a wonderful experience from the very start with Jo Lee as our server. She was excellent throughout. I had the stuffed flounder and my wife had crab cakes. Both meals were prepared perfectly. For dessert we shared the creme brûlée. It was very good also. Being a special occasion the restaurant...

Love The Boathouse and got engaged here! This restaurant is one of our faves so getting engaged here in IOP made it all the more special! I am ordering a necklace with the Latitude and Longitude of the restaurant so I can always remember how special it is to me! Delicious food!

Visited the Boathouse in the off season and found it to be very ordinary in terms of food, but very loud. Not the romantic spot we were hoping for. The room was drafty and cramped. Probably a better choice in season.

Always the best, don't miss the chef's special, you'll be sorry! We went in with no idea of what we wanted. Soon we were amazed with what was happening, all was fresh and all was cooked the way we wanted it, what can I say.....don't miss this chance!

We are locals and we usually only try to go to this restaurant during the off season due to the summer crowds. I had one of the best grilled salmons ever along with the red rice, squash and a few INCREDIBLE bites of my husband's Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese. My husband had the local Wreckfish and it was fantastic... More

That's about all I can say about this place. It's ok. Go back down the street to the long island cafe!

My wife and I agree that this may be the best place for seafood on the east coast. You get what you pay for here. High quality, fresh, and original. Atmosphere is perfect for an SC barrier island!

My wife and I have been there for dinner in the past, but this was our first visit for their sunday brunch. We started out with their spicy shrimp & grits, it was the best shrimp & grits we have ever had. I had their scrambled eggs with bacon well done, home potatoes, and their home made biscuit. They prepared... More

Went here on our first date without baby and shared fried shrimp/calamari and had delicious cocktails. We loved the food but loved the atmosphere in the patio/bar. It was really cool to see a charter come in and unload their fish while we enjoyed our drinks, as well as a few dolphins pass by while we are.
