We enjoyed this so much we went back two days running! The Skull Creek Boathouse has wonderful seafood and a wonderful view of the Intercoastal Waterway. Just noticed someone complained about the busyness of the place, and that was true...but if you sit outside, the lapping of the waves is soothing and makes the wait easier. It was also interesting...

One of our all time favorites with a great outdoor bar and good food from an extensive menu. Highly recommend in off season (Sept.-March) but rediculously crowded the rest of the year which tells you how popular it is!

This is a great place to enjoy brunch--Saturday/Sunday, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Good variety to chose from, specials and always tranquil views over Skull Creek to the wildlife preserve.

Love the food and the service you get at this local restaurant. We visit HHI at least once a year, sometimes twice. Boathouse is usually visited 2 or 3 times. Love the food and location

The Marriott where we stayed recommended this restaurant.....it was one of the best meals my husband & I have had in Hilton Head so far. He had the fried catfish with collard greens, mac & cheese....he was very pleased. I tasted the catfish & it was wonderful. I had the combo plate with scallops, stuffed jumbo shrimp, salt & vinegar... More

Hilton Head Boathouse is a locals favorite although everyone is welcome! Great people, good variety of choices, fresh seafood and quick service are benchmarks for this restaurants local customers. The outside seating, deck/bar, water view and incredible sunsets overlooking the creek are just icing on the cake (which by the way...the deserts are pretty good too!)

HHB is a boat sales and service dealer located immediately in front of the Skull Creek Boathouse. People ranting raving about how good the "food is at Hilton Head Boathouse" either did not know where they ate OR were mistaken by the similar names. NOT in the same category.

These were the best crabcakes without all the fillers. Great tuna as well. Views were awesome even with the clouds coming in. Nice touch that you get to keep the glass with a lot of their specialty drinks and beers.

I had the opportunity to visit the Boathouse this past week with my family of which 2 of them live on Hilton Head. The experience was great even for someone who does not like seafood that much. I had the fried flounder the first time we went and the Chicken Fingers the second time. But both times I had a... More
