These Are Our Favorite Spots for Waterfront Dining on Isle of Palms 

The Boathouse on Breach Inlet 

The Boathouse on Breach Inlet has earned a place in our hearts as one of the best Isle of Palms restaurants. The fresh-catch menu options and coastal decor are just the beginning of what we love about this eatery. The Boathouse on Breach Inlet also features a charming patio for waterfront dining. Grab a seat at the bar and enjoy waterfront views thanks to the open-air floorplan. Or, opt to dine on the patio with the water just beneath your feet. At night, string lights illuminate the patio, making it the perfect place to reflect on your day as the sunsets.  

Coconut Joe’s Beach Grill

No frills? No problem. Coconut Joe’s Beach Grill has been serving up Lowcountry favorites since 1997. At Coconut Joe’s, what you see is you what you. That includes the oceanfront views! This unassuming-from-the-outside eatery boasts funky, colorful dining spaces with matching frozen drinks to boot! Choose from a variety of Southern favorites (most battered and fried) with accompanying views of the Atlantic Ocean! Coconut Joe’s also boasts the best happy hour on the island

Coda Del Pesce

For something on the frillier side, opt for dinner at Coda Del Pesce. This natural light-filled eatery is the Isle of Palm’s favorite Italian restaurant. Dine outside for panoramic ocean views. Weather not cooperating? Dine inside and enjoy the waterfront views thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s truly not a bad seat in the house! Even better than the views is the menu. Coda Del Pesce considers its cuisine to be “contemporary Italian” while also incorporating Lowcountry favorites like blue crab!
