The Boathouse boasts one of the best dining views in the Lowcountry thanks to its perch at the edge of Breach Inlet on the Isle of Palms. Since 1997, its broad offering of fresh, local seafood has been drawing crowds of locals and vacationers alike. Longtime chef Charles Arena left the Boathouse recently, but the kitchen has been taken over by capable sous chef Aaron Greenberg. The daily “Fish Board” highlights a rotating selection of fresh, local catches, which you can have grilled, blackened, fried, or roasted, and there’s a generous array of house specialties like crab cakes, sweet tea-brined fried chicken, and a 6 oz. sirloin paired with a butter-poached lobster tail. Toby Van Buren harvests his clams from beds literally just around the corner, and the Boathouse serves them in the shell with house-cured bacon and spinach ragout. On weekends, hearty eggs benedict, jalapeño and sweet corn hushpuppies, and po’ boys provide brunch options that are almost as satisfying as the marsh view from the big rooftop deck. —Robert Moss Dish (Summer 2013)
