“Dinner at the Boathouse”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Great food and good service. I felt it was a bit pricey and it's a place you need reservations. We dropped in which was a mistake on our part. They did take care of outside but would have preferred to be inside with a view of the water.

“Bland food.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Food did not fulfill our expectations. When you eat at the coast you might think that seafood is fresh - not here! Even the hush puppies were not good. Very generic food and not good presentation at all. I asked for the soup of the day "avocado escabeche" and YUCK! The waiter was kind enough and took it off my check without me asking. When it came time for dessert we all said, "no way - lets get out of here" ...

Our food was great and the service was great. Great views of waterway. Parking is an issue. We had to park along the highway.

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We have been coming to the Charleston area for many years and we always try to schedule a dinner at the Boathouse on Isle of Palms at least once during our stay. I had that swordfish and was happy with the choice. The location is great with wonderful views of the water. Prices were not cheap with most fish dishes in the $20+ range. Service was excellent. We'll keep coming back.

“Boathouse review”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great scenic view inside and outside. Friendly service, but fish selection was only fair. Swordfish was bland. Other dishes looked much better. Rest of party liked their food!
