We all love visiting the boathouse whenever we are I town. The hush puppies, fish and chips, and shrimp and grits are just a few of our favorites.

I came here with a client who is local to the area. I had the Caribbean Cajun Chicken sandwich. The sandwich was good, not great and not amazing but good. Nice local place.

I love the fish here - southern battered and fried. I wish they could up their game with some really good hush puppies. 😊. Parking can be tight here... More

This is a very cute restaurant with great food and drink. We were looking for a place to stop where our well behaved dogs could sit with us on a patio, and this was the perfect place for a great lunch with good cold beer on a sunny fall afternoon. Highly recommend.

Perfect waffles and chicken plus cocktails out of mason jars in an old grocery store. We loved everything about this place from the service to the food and the decor.

Enjoyed a superb lunch at the Boat House. Staff were friendly (not not too friendly) and efficient. Our cod Po' boys were deliciously crisp and the fries tasty and not oily at all. Most enjoyable.
