Been several times to this restaurant and glad we made reservations - very crowded. Mjor downfall was that they only had 1 bartender! It was hard to get a drink....Hopefully they will open up the other two bars AND have them staffed...
We were very disappointed after eating here many times over the years. Ordered 3 different entrees and each time waitress returned to say they were out. Just not a good experience.
Always good especially around sunset! Missed it this time so ate inside. Quieter than usual as not vary busy.
They sat us right by the door that went to another lower dining area and also by the bar. A group of younger people were there having drinks and were very loud. It was kinda hard to not hear them as our table was right there by the walkway and bar area. Not a great place for dining tables. They should put bar tables there instead of having people stand around. The table next to us was an arms length apart. We could hear everything they said about each other all their ailments. ECT! The food and drinks were ok but not outstanding and service was good. Our server was pretty busy but took pretty good care of us. I may or may not try this restaurant again. There are so many to try in the area and Charleston area. If we did eat here again I would be ask to seat in the lower part of the restaurant. This was our first time to visit this restaurant. Thanks!
This was the worst experience ever. We had reservations and from the moment we talked to the hostess we knew something was going on as they questioned wether or not to sit us at the table they put us at. There was a large party of drunks next to us, at 7 pm for dinner! They were so loud and obnoxious we couldn’t hear one another speak much less hear the waiter or my own thoughts in my head. The waiter apologized and the food was not worth the horrible experience or the headache I left with. Obviously the staff knew nobody would be able to actually enjoy their dinner seated next to them so why would they torture us? NEVER AGAIN!
The seafood was not fresh and appetizer tower for $75.00 was not as advertised.
Long time(40+ years) girlfriends get together
All but one said their meals were delicious
The pasta was a disappointment, but my tile fish was nice surprise
Food is great!
Our booth was ready and reserved when we arrived which was a plus, but it took 20 minutes to get our order taken while we watched our waiter do much of nothing.
Food was mediocre.
Went this past Valentine's Day for dinner with my lady. Very enticing menu, it was hard to make a final decision. Ended up with a great, affordable meal (lobster and streak). Great service, great view. Try and get there around 6pm to get a glimpse of the sunset. Can't wait to go back
Had some business guests in from Mexico and Japan. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and . eating out on the heated deck was nice for all of us. I was kinda disappointed with the some of the menu changes since it had been a while since I have eaten there. I missed the crab corn chowder and the grilled/blackened tuna steak both of which had been my favorites. The chef also changed the shrimp and grits. It wasn't all about me and the guests did enjoy it.
Calamari and mussels were excellent. Grilled salmon was good but not special. I had red rice and collards which was also good but again not "out of the ordinary " good. Lobster tail and crabcake was very good. Overall, the 3 couples enjoyed our dinners. Our table service was excellent.
My favorite Watervue from brunch and all of Charleston.
The Boathouse never disappoints. We always make sure to eat here every time we’re in the Charleston area.
Celebrating 5 birthdays - Mike Germaine kept us entertained and made us a FANTASTIC margarita while we waited for our table - Seafood was amazing and fresh, waitstaff provided excellent service - all around great meal and experience -
Great service! great food ! Went there for brunch everything was cooked just right And tasty!will come back for a dinner meal!
Great place for a nice dinner and you won't go broke in the process!
We have been dining at the boathouse for 14 years now, and it never disappoints! Great service, great food, great ambiance! We take our folks here every time they are in town and they love it too. Our go-to for sure.
Great place to dine with friends and family. Food is great. Visited many times and have never been disappointed.
