Great dinner. Attentive staff. Location is a new addition, but appears to be overlooked by locals. Be sure to try the Fried Green Tomato w:Roadie sauce. Great starter.

Do'nt go by its looks. This modest-looking restaurant is a winner! The food, service and casual atmosphere are the reason I would visit again whenver I am next in Charleston. Highly recommended.

After reading all the good reviews I am sure we entered the twilight zone. We waited over an hour for our lost order. It took forever to get our drinks. Hope your not thirsty because after two iced teas were dropped off we did not...More

Waited the stated 30 minutes per seating hostess. Seated at a table where we waited and watched other people being seated and orders taken around us. We sat at least 20 minutes before someone took our drink and food order. Waited again for iced tea...More

A local had recommended this place to eat. We had an extremely long wait and they were out of most of our first choices to eat. Very disappointing.

We visited on a Saturday night. This restaurant had a very casual, seafood shack type ambiance. The front parking lot was full, so we had to park in the back. There was used cooking oil and dirty rags sitting out behind the restaurant, which was...More

Roadside Seafood is a casual seafood restaurant. We started in 2012 as a mobile food truck. As our popularity grew, so did our demand. So we opened doors to our family owned restaurant in April 2014. We serve fresh seafood the way you want it. When it comes to the normal sea fare like oysters, shrimp, and crab cakes, we've got you covered. However we also have unique menu options like shark, frog legs and gator tail! We were picked by Charleston Magazine's Food & Beverage issue as the Best She-Crab Soup along with Best Down Home Seafood 2014. We have also been named as the No. 2 Best Fried Shrimp Spot in Charleston, by the Charleston City Paper! So c'mon and see why we claim to have the "Best BAM Seafood in Charleston"!!!
