Re: “The Boathouse at Breach Inlet

What a horrible experience. We were in SC on vacation, and made a reservation for the Boathouse. My wife and myself, along with our two daughters, aged 13 and 11, we're very excited about the meal, as my wife and I had been there many years ago on a getaway weekend, and remembered it fondly as a neat place, and a restaurant offering fine food.

We arrived on time, and were sat at a table in the middle of the main dining room. A man and woman with their three-year-old daughter were seated against the windows facing the water, and their child screamed for the first 30 minutes of the meal. We said nothing, and The parents produced an iPad for the child to watch, making sure the volume was turned all the way up. We let this go on for maybe 10 minutes or so, until it became unbearable. My wife, who was also pregnant, very politely walked over and asked the mother of the child if they would be so kind as to turn down the volume of the iPad. The mother huffed and puffed, and reluctantly turned down the volume. She then proceeded to look over at our table and told us to "shut the f"&) up, my child is three, how dare us." I looked over and said "how dare you speak that way in front of my children," where as the husband of this foul woman looked at me and told me to "back off."

We added a photo to show what it was like, right before this incident happened. As you can see, there is the Mother, on her phone, daughter LAYING DOWN on the booth, with her precious iPad blasting a movie and as bright as can be, while my Daughters continue to smile, excited to eat their meal!

Well, at this point we were ready to leave, as our night had been ruined. The bartender manager was very friendly, offering us his sincere apologies and to comp the meal. We refused, as at that point it was not the fault of the establishment. Now, as I said, this initial event was not the restaurant's fault, but what happens next is the issue that makes this place not even worthy of one star. As I was signing the bill, and after enduring additional abuse at the hands of these foul people, and watching the mother carry on as loudly as possible, singing children's songs with the young girl and laughing and making a fool of herself, all while sucking down their third drink in 20 minutes each, the actual head manager came over and consoled the foul people for their bad experience! He coddled these "regulars", as he followed me out, telling me to "calm down", and basically inferring that this issue was my fault!

All I did was act as any father should, and acting as any father would, I stood up for my children, as we don't speak that way in front of them, and nor should anyone else. I never used foul language, never raised my voice, never sunk to their level, but still, we we're the ones left leaving feeling as if WE did something wrong. These people should have been asked to leave, after using foul language in front of two young girls, berating a family trying to enjoy a meal, and basically telling us our opinion means nothing. They should have at least been moved, especially after the bar manager offered to pay for our meal, as he knew without a doubt that this issue was most DEFINITELY not a result of anything that we did. How dare that manager! He neither saw the event, nor asked any staff member a question, he just made assumptions and partnered with the wrong side.

We will never eat here again, nor should anyone else!
