We stopped by for a beverage. It was a bright, sunny warm Sunday. Everyone was out, and their dogs too! Beautiful atmosphere. Parking was jammed. Hard to find a stop to sit. Go early! Food looked good too. Huge beer selection.

The Boathouse is my favorite place for fried seafood. The food is always great. Today I had the shrimp and scallops combo. It never disappoints. The service is always attentive but never hovering. Today we were also treated to a piece of chocolate birthday cake.

We stopped for lunch and were not disappointed. The second floor dining room has a great view of the beach and is well appointed. Service was fast and attentive, and the food was tasty and portions were generous. The menu offered a variety of meals and would be worth checking out for dinner. Worth the stop.

Wonderful place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Great breakfast selection with super regular 4.99 special. Calabash seafood is excellenty prepared with plentiful portions. Not widely known but best prime deal in town on Saturday nights. Expertly prepared for terrific price of 19.99 Yum.

Great place for family! Very friendly and the seafood is as fresh as it gets! My personal favorite is the flounder and shrimp combo! My husband loves the oysters! It is a favorite go-to for great dependable food!

The fried flounder is the best. All items are enjoyable and the prices are the best in town for the food you get.

Another winner. The scallops and shrimp were prepared perfectly. The pineapple chicken was wonderful as well. Loved the corn on the cob. Didn't care for the gravy on the potatoes. Hush puppies were cold. Service was excellent. Restaurant was clean. Will return

Great place to take a family; friendly staff, down home cooking, lots of choices for any meal (breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner). Super-fresh shrimp and flounder.

Went there with my granddaughter and her mom. I had the seafood platter while my granddaughters mom had a chicken sandwich. Great variety, great taste and great prices. It is worth a second trip when there is not a storm going through.

The hushpuppies are very good and the service is also great. We all had some time of fish, from shrimp to flounder to crab and they all were very tasty. Very large portions!
