This rustic seafood restaurant overlooks the marina and remains a popular local staple. The menu combines fresh seafood with Lowcountry cooking; there’s plenty of crab, lobster, and shrimp, but also sweet jalapeño hushpuppies, steaks, spicy shrimp and grits, and stewed okra. Arrive early for an aperitif on the rooftop bar, which boasts spectacular ocean views. The boathouse itself is an artfully designed replica of a typical early 20th-century coastal South Carolina building. The rowboats hanging from the ceiling are the real thing, however—some over 100 years old.
