Second time visiting and very underwhelmed this time. The blackened scallops were so salty as to be barely edible and the side dish of cheesy garlic mash was cold. The ribs were okay, but again, a cold side of potatoes.

It is apparent that the staff suffers from tourist fatigue. Hosts greeted us out of necessity. Later they were observed arguing with one another in the restroom. Wait staff were rarely seen. We were told that chips for the dip would be an up charge. Really? Go to Clark’s. A better experience with better food for equivalent cost.

We were there early and it was busy. I ordered fried oysters and grilled shrimp. We had calamari and it was delicious. Our salads were wonderful as always. My shrimp came fried instead of grilled. I don’t like to return plates so I didn’t mention the fried shrimp. I ate my meal as they prepared it. Everything was very good.

We had high expectations for The Boundary House as we were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary. Thankfully we booked our table 2 days in advance. We arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation time and were given a buzzer. Our table was ready for us within a few minutes. We were pleased with the booth in which we were ushered. They were very busy but service was great! Their Appletinis were just right and my husband enjoyed his side salad with the buttery croissant. My shrimp and grits were some of the best I have ever had! I didn’t eat it all and had gotten a bowl to take home and then forgot it at my table!! Overall, we enjoyed it and will return for special occasions.

This restaurant came highly suggested by close friends so we decided to give it a try while we were on vacation. We had reservations for 630 and were sat immediately. The waitress took our drink order and it took her 15 minutes to bring our drinks. We ordered immediately when she returned and we waited for 45 minutes for our food. There were no apologies or references made to how long we waited. Our food was excellent and we understand why it was highly suggested but the service and wait staff acted like they didn’t want to work. We understand that most places right now are understaffed but we felt as if they didn’t want to be there.

As always, the food was outstanding. The server (AJ) was friendly and helpful, despite being incredibly busy. With a reservation, we still had to wait, but were given a beeper so we could relax on the patio with drinks. This is the second time that I ordered the pesto salmon, and it was as delicious as I remembered. Their house dressing, honey-mustard bacon is incredible. My husband ordered NewYork strip steak and it was melt-in-you-mouth tender.

Pleasantly surprised. Made reservations for 5:00 we were seated at 5:05
. Those without reservations were put on a 1:45 hour wait. Service was excellent not rushed. Ran out of baked potatoes. But the mashed were fine. My blackened flounder was great

When we arrived, our table was ready in just a few minutes, which was wonderful. The three of us all had different adult beverages as well as different meals to eat, and all three of us enjoyed all of it. Our waiter was very nice, as well as the hostesses. We had a great time and look forward to the next time!

This is the third or fourth time I have eaten here & it never disappoints. The house salad with house dressing is amazing, as is the loaded baked potato. Definitely eat here if you are looking for a nice meal while at the beach.

Luckily we ha a reservation as the line was VERY long waiting to get in.. We still had t waite for about 20 minutes which. I didn’t understand as there were many empty tables. My husband surmised that maybe it was because you;re short staffed to which I agreed …that;s the way it is nowadays which I don;t understand either….oh well… All. In all, it was an enjoyable dinner, the food was very good an our waiter was very good also, (don;t remember his name) (tall and thin , dark hair…) THANK YOU.

We had a lovely evening. The food was wonderful. Alanna was an excellent server. My only complaint is that there were several dead and dying flies in our window sill. Ugh.

Had a good time. Good service and food. Music was loud enough to make it difficult to communicate with our server, but that seems to be the norm these days.

Our food was delicious as always, and our server, Amanda, was very attentive. I suspect that the kitchen must be short staffed because unfortunately the wait time for our food was pretty lengthy. Fortunately, Amanda kept our drinks refreshed and checked in on us often. I would dine at Boundary House again next time in Calabash, but will definitely not again until the summer crowds die down.

The food was delicious, but the service was poor. We had a 4:30 reservation, and we weren't served until 6:30. After waiting for over an hour, we were told that one of the main courses- a pasta dish that we ordered- was no longer available.
