    The hostess wasn’t great. Tried to talk us into an indoor table when obviously nobody books a reservation here to sit inside. We asked for an outdoor table which she eventually accommodated but made sure to make it uncomfortable. The food was decent and our server was great, it was just a weird welcome to the restaurant.

    Great location. Excellent valet parking. Wonderful table by the water. Super service. Food was very good though a bit more expensive than it might be. A do again? Maybe but will probably try a smaller restaurant.

    Great spot and best fish that we have had on this trip. We were seated beside a very loud table but staff quickly relocated us to a quieter spot. We watched them do the same thing for a couple right behind us. Fortunately food arrived and this family turned down the volume a bit. Yikes!

    This was the worst restaurant experience we might have had in a very long time. The hostess was rude and unaccommodating to our table of 7. We had an infant who needed a high chair but she kept wanting to put us at a table for 6 which left no room for my daughter. The outdoor patio was empty when we arrived and we could have easily been moved. There were 2 larger tables available that would have worked but she denied our request twice. We never felt welcome. The food came out way too fast so we knew it was just reheated. We were in and out in an hour. My husband said the steak was probably what they use to make dog food. Overall it was awful and we don’t understand the hype. With so many absolutely phenomenal choices in IOP, Sullivans and Charleston proper, we will not be wasting our time or calories eating at the boathouse ever again.

    The service staff were all friendly and willing to accommodate requests which my husband tends to have many. He asked to have The strawberry jalapeño margarita muddled with jalapeños not just infused. Request granted And it was DELICIOUS! Spicy just the way we like it. Our Tuscany salmon dish we had blackened and request granted-again delicious.

    Great location, loved the rooftop bar and the food was very good. Overall it was a good experience for our date night without the little one. We arrived over an hour early for our reservation (wanted to grab a drink at the bar) but still had to wait an additional 15+ min past our reservation time for a table. We were not in a huge rush so that was okay. We did however find it odd that we were sat at a very small table in the corner directly next to another couple (almost as if we were at the same table together) when there were several other open tables around us. Luckily the couple next to us was super friendly and we all just enjoyed our meal together! We’d still recommend this cool spot if visiting the IOP area!

    On our girls’ trip to Isle of Palms we decided to give The Boathouse a try. Boy were we glad we did! The view of the setting sun was incredible, and the boathouse atmosphere was casual. But the best part was the outstanding food! One person had the shrimp and grits which was loaded with big shrimp, tomatoes and onions. She loved it. Great service. Go, you won’t be sorry.

    This is our once a year visit to the beach in SC. Our dining at The Boathouse never fails to delight! It all started with our awesome server, Ms. Hawley. She created what became the whole package last evening, attentive and friendly service, great food, Scallops that were TDF, Shrimp and Grits that were perfectly prepared! What a minute, don’t forget the Fried Green Tomatoes that sure were cooked by Southern Angels!! They were light, almost crisp and oh so tasty! To cap it all off, house-made Key Lime Pie with a side of SUNSET!! The only minor change I would have suggested was the background music, the Classic Rock was a great trip through our high school/ college years. I would have preferred perhaps something more relaxing, I.e. Sinatra/ Rat Pack/ American Songbook. Perhaps next year…😉😁 See you then, Hawley!

    Have been coming here for years. We were seated and immediately noticed a leak in the roof. Mentioned to server. She didn’t respond. Appetizer came before our cocktail. Husbands fish was undercooked. He ate around it until he just couldn’t. Ask server to cook the last little bit. I could tell that bothered her, but she did. Still came back undercooked. Bill came, not even our bill. She corrected but no real apology, nothing comped for any of the bad night. Will chalk it up to a bad night, lack of finding good help, but have never been disappointed in The Boathouse

    We each ordered a $45 entree that had absolutely no flavor. We had to ask for seasonings. The shrimp tasted like it had just been heated up and not cooked. The lobster was okay but disappointing. Very let down. Our server was very kind. However, we will not be returning or recommending this restaurant based upon our experience.

    We had terrible food - not sure if it was an off night but our first time there. Oysters on the half shell were MASSACRED by whomever shucked them, plus tons of either sand or broken shells mixed in. Very unpleasant. We ordered grilled salmon (good) and pan seared scallops, which were served completely overdone - almost jerkified. I would NOT recommend this place for food. Service was good and view/setting was lovely.

I hope your server or manager was able to assist you to your satisfaction. Please feel free to contact us directly if we can assist you further. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the salmon as well as the service and the view.
