We were traveling through CLT and stopped near here. Our hotel recommend this place. When we arrived, we had no idea the Panthers were playing. The local crowd was really into the game which created a fun atmosphere. Plenty of screens to see the game-to bad they lost. Our waiter was most helpful in helping us select some local craft...

Had dinner here on a glorious Fall evening. The place was lively and has a great menu and drinks list. Service was really good and the food (full rack of ribs) was superb! ,

My friend and I met for lunch at boardwalk Billy's for drinks and food. We had a great time plenty of laughs. The bartender was extremely rude, because my friend didn't leave a tip, telling her that she forgot to put her tip on the bill. I left enough for us both, but the bartender began talking about my friend... More

Very lively place. We tried the founder different ways. Good, but expected better. The shrimp was very good. Good service and they were packed.

We ate here for Father's Day 2016. My husband, kids and I really enjoyed. We arrived about 3:30 and the wait time was only about 15 minutes or less. We ate outside. The service was great and the food was delicious and fresh.

Our group of 20 traveled 30 miles from our hotel to relax. Enjoying drinks, shrimp and oysters. We really enjoyed being able to just hang out and yet being taken care of.

We ordered the shrimp and fish tacos which came out quickly. Portion size was good and we took some home with us. Service was good, but they were not very busy at the time.

Nice place to grab some ribs in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was quite good, as were the ribs. Several choices of sauce...and we liked that we could make different choices, of course! Food was served promptly and hot. One of our group had a large burger, and was not quite as satisfied with that choice. Stick to the ribs...there... More

Service was a little slow today, but food was great! Also a great place to sit outside and enjoy lunch. Dog friendly outside patio seating is a plus! We enjoy going there.
