We chose the Boathouse as we were arriving in Wilmington since it was a casual environment, I must agree with others that the outside is not a reflection of the inside. We had the fried shrimp, broiled shrimp, fried flounder & fried catfish - all was good. We did have an issue during our visit however I must commend the staff/management and their prompt & excellent customer service.

The fried shrimp & flounder are the best in town. Also, the prime rib special is delicious. Native of the area who grew up eating the best seafood, & this is some of the best I've ever eaten! I come here for fried seafood, so I don't know about the broiled options. An unassuming but yummy spot.

Brought the wife and kids here for lunch and had a good meal. The service was good not great, and same with the atmosphere. I would have to say it's average in the fish and chips department. Not sure why so many people gave it 5 stars, it's not a 5 star restaurant.

Should have read further down trip advisor......trip advisor usually does not disappoint ....but unfortunately it did this time. Service not good at all, steaks not cooked to order, cold hushpuppies....were told they were cooking fresh as we got our food.....got again as we were ready to leave. First and last visit.

Driving towards the beach we saw this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food was just delicious, the fish was fresh and it was perfectly fried. Welcoming people and great service made the staff earn five stars!
