Get there early because this place, although very large indoor and outdoor seating areas, fills up fast. Get the sunset special starting at 4 and you will not be dissapointed.

Great experience, wonderful place. Large area seating - we did experience a long wait, they do not take reservations we're told but the atmosphere was fantastic, beautiful views of the water, live music, multiple bars and friendly staff. Crowded but worth the wait - go early! I love Jambalaya and have eaten it many times; I found the best ever... More

Go early, this place is busy. But it is worth the wait. Everything on the menu is great. Prices are very reasonable, and super place for kids.

My boys love this place. We all love the outdoor dinning option and we have never had anything on the menu that wasn't good. Service has always been top notch. We eat here at least once every time we go to HHI in the last 4 years.

Stopped for lunch on a Saturday. Outside seating was full, but found seats at the outside bar. All food was very good. The fried chicken breast with mac and cheese was exceptional, not very healthy, but worth the calories! Sweet potato fries were good and every sandwich I saw coming out was large and well presented. You can watch them... More

would have been nice to sit outside, but you need to get there before 5p; otherwise it is a 45-60min wait. Inside seating was immediate.

The Skull Creek Boathouse has very ample seating both indoors and out. We had a lovely table overlooking the patio area with a water view. The Special on the lunch menu was a wonderful grilled fish sandwich (sorry I do not recall the type of fish) served with fries. The fish was perfectly cooked - tender, juicy and flaky...the fries...

Let's start by saying that the wait time for a table could be quite a while. Not much bar space to accommodate those waiting. Too cold and windy to eat outside and I believe it was closed anyway. We did race to the bar when 2 people left and were confronted by others who had felt that they were entitled... More
