Skull Creek Boathouse Restaurant History
Skull Creek Boathouse is part of Hilton Head Island history. Built in the early 1980s, the Hilton Head restaurant and outdoor bar were originally part of the Schilling Boathouse, once the largest dry dock boat storage facility on Hilton Head Island. The restaurant went through a transformation several years later when it was expanded to become Boathouse II.
Around the same time the original Boathouse II restaurant came to be, Steve Carb, President of The SERG Restaurant Group, opened his first restaurant, Giuseppi’s Pizza & Pasta on Hilton Head Island. As Giuseppi’s succeeded and The SERG Restaurant Group grew with new Hilton Head restaurants, Carb still dreamed of opening a waterfront restaurant on Hilton Head. In 2009, The SERG Restaurant Group purchased The Boathouse II restaurant and in keeping with its historical “Boathouse” name, re-named it Skull Creek Boathouse.
The boathouse restaurant has undergone a complete interior transformation, all while keeping the historical waterfront outdoor bar and history of fresh seafood in tact.
