They were out of surf and turf, which is my main reason for going. But no matter, I got a different meal and was still pleased.

One of my favorite places on the coast.

I was very disappointed that I couldn’t get my first or second choice. I had so been looking forward to this meal and had brought friends here. One of them couldn’t get what they wanted either. I don’t expect this at 4:30. This is one of my favorite places and I have never experienced this before. Service was very good.

Our server Hayden was excellent and funny. The meal was very good and flavorful. Too bad they ran out of their signature bread pudding dessert at 6:00PM but the chocolate bundt cake was a good substition, just not sure how you run out of the bread pudding that early.

The Boundary House is our "go to" restaurant after ten years of hunting for a restaurant that is consistently very good in the NMB/Calabash area. The menu is excellent and everything is well-prepared and plentiful, the establishment is clean and very spacious and the open kitchen and complimentary staff are evidence of a well run establishment. Reservations available on the web site - recommended.

Good for children through adults.

Love the food at the Boundary House. Our food took longer than expected to arrive and my friend’s fish was over cooked and had to be sent back. I highly recommend the chef salad with hot bacon and honey mustard dressing.

The restaurant was nice the server was very good, but it took about hour to get our food. The manager came by and told us they were short staff in the kitchen. When the food came out it was over cooked.

My Favorite restaurant! The food and service are always great. I love their salads especially the croissant and the hot bacon dressing. They were crazy busy and what made it worse they are short on help. The waitress warned us when we were seated that the kitchen was backed up. We received our drinks and salads quickly but there was a wait for the entrees. The manager came around and spoke to us and we are locals so we understand the problem all restaurants are having getting help. This is still my favorite restaurant!

Even though very busy and short staffed, service great…. Our server Kayla was working double shift…food fresh, well prepared and well presented. I would recommend reservations to avoid waiting for a table. Highly recommend!!

Food was good as always. The server had a “ I don’t care if I’m here or not attitude. It was my sons 27th birthday . They forgot bacon bits on his salad , took his tea glass halfway through his meal and never bought him another and forgot the candle on his birthday cake. Other than that it was fine. I guess the staff is worn thin because of shortage of wait staff.

Our server was great but our food was just OM. The hostess, who happened to be our first impression, was horrible. She was SO rude. We made a reservation for 6 adults and 1 highchair. There was no option to include a highchair, so I figured no big deal, and just included 6 adults. We showed up at 3:23 and was told we only put 6. My mother explained it was 6 and a high chair. We were then given a pager and told “it’s 3:23. We will sit you at 3:30”. When our pager went off, we went up to the stand to be told that we put 6, including a high chair, even though we corrected her. She threw a fit and went on about how we messed up the reservation.

Lets start with our waiter Kevin was excellent! I had the filet and scallops. Steak was good but very small. Scallops tasteless. Wife had prime rib. She said it was good but a little tuff. My friends had the Salmon and chicken with shrimp. The salmon was dry chicken was terrible and really? 4 popcorn sized shrimp. Way over priced! Good thing their located in a vacation destination. Could take awhile to disappoint the large flow of people. We wont be back.

They were understaffed and it took over an hour to get entrees. The fried food was hot and fresh but the steak and the baked potatoes were cold. We sent them back and the new potatoes were great, but the steak must have been microwaved because it was completely dried out. They took it off the bill, but we wished they had thrown some butter over it and actually put it back on the grill to heat back up. The service was excellent and we feel they worked to fix the issue, but we will not be back until it is fully staffed.

Some of the food was cold. It took 15 minutes for the waitress to come to our table and took almost 20 minutes just to get our drinks. I work in the food industry and I know a lot of places are getting hit with people not wanting to work. I'm sure the food would have been good if hot. The waitress was very nice. I hate giving a bad review, but we were very patient. It was my fiance's birthday. Disappointing. Might give another try because we like to support our local businesses.

As always the food was good. Seems like most restaurants they are short staffed due to the government paying people more to stay home. Not Boundary House’s fault. We will be back.
