I had been there in 2013 and did not really plan on going back. However, when we went two (2) nights ago at my daughter's insistence they won me over. There were 7 of us and we booked a table on Opentable to be sure...More

The Boathouse used to be our favorite restaurant at Isle of Palms. The quality has decreased lately it seems. I am very picky about crab cakes and the Boathouse used to have delicious ones, but on this trip I found them lacking--too much filler and...More

Boathouse has a nice situation at the inlet with water views. We sat outside and enjoyed our meal. There was nothing fancy about the preparation but fresh fish is fresh fish and we enjoyed ours very much.

The seafood was not the quality it used to be. I think this restaurant is resting on it's name and needs to step up the quality of food it prepares. We ordered the calamari and jalapeno hush puppies for an appetizer and split the pineapple...More

Parking is very limited. Waiting area outside is beautiful. Inside, it was packed. Furthermore, we were packed like sardines. Wait staff was excellent, as was the food.

Very limited bar service. Don't trust the $3 mixed drink specials. After you have your drink, you may fine out that yours didn't qualify. What I thought was going to be a $3 Jack & Ginger cost $6.50, plus tax & tip.

Most definitely inside, but probably not outside.

Good evening, Can The Boathouse accommodate approximately 25-30 persons, with an ocean/water view? With advanced notice/ reservations, of course! Thanks!

They did have a lower level area that I saw from our table that had its own bar and plenty of tables to accommodate that number. Hope this helps your planning.
