Always enjoy coming here for dinner. They serve the freshest food and I enjoy the crab cakes along with collard greens. Very tasty food along with a great selection of wine. Would highly recommend and go and see the sunset as it is beautiful!

To start with the calamari was the best we have ever had in our 60 plus years from all over the world! I would make the trip again just for the calamari! All the seafood was very good and the wait staff was very knowledgeable on the menu. Hated that we waited till the last nights to go there or... More

Great low key place. Nice view at a historical breachway. Perfect spot for drinks at sunset on upper deck although the female barmaid was not honest with her pricing

I used to love coming to the Boathouse when I visited the Isle of Palms - great views, great ambience, great food and great service. The pros: the views are still spectacular at sunset as they are right on the intracoastal waterway and the ambience is still great. The service is good (not great) but no problems there. The cons:...

Went here for dinner without a reservation. Like expected, there was a 1+ hour wait. The restaurant offers an outdoors bar area that overlooks the inlet with a beautiful view, so we had no problems waiting. The bar had good drink specials and we were able to get an appetizer delivered out to us. The service at the bar was... More

The food is somewhat overpriced, but not a bad quality. Their crab cakes are sumptuous and worth going there for just these starters. They have (needed) valet parking and the service is more that adequate.

The crows bar is laid back and comfortable with a wonderful view of the inlet. Ask for the outside table or they will try to seat you inside. What a waste on a beautiful day. The service was great and the local seafood dishes that we had were the best of our stay.

Our family of 4 enjoyed oysters and we all had seafood platters with steak, lobster tails, shrimp and scallops. The selection of sides is really good too. Our server was very nice and made great recommendations. The host came around to and was very nice and accommodating.

Firs the good - views are great and there is a rooftop bar to enjoy before/after dinner that is quite nice. Complimentary valet parking is also a nice touch. The food was not bad, but I did expect more from a seafood restaurant in the low country. i had shrimp and grits, which I would think is an easy home... More

It is still a good meal, used to be a great meal. Service is good . The room is clean. Portions are ample. Better then most places on IOP. Just not an exciting or fresh atmosphere anymore.
