Boathouse is the ideal seaside restaurant: Very fresh seafood, relaxed atmosphere, and an impeccable view. Come at sunset and watch the sun go down from the rooftop bar overlooking the bayou.
Simple dishes like fried shrimp gain dignity from the incredibly fresh shrimp they use. Each bite has slightly salty explosion of shrimp that is lost in most fried shrimp now-a-days. Shrimp with grits has 5 too many ingredients, but the grits themselves are very well done. Oysters on the half shell couldnt have been out to of the water more than a couple of hours. Very satisfying after a day on the beach.
Make reservations if you dont want to wait an hour or so at the bar.
Pros: Fresh shrimp, fresh oysters
