The restaurant seemed to have good reviews, so we decided to try it. Neither I nor my wife were impressed. The food was overpriced for the portions and quality. The food was bland and really just, not good.More

Good food, good service, pleasant staff. Decor isn't much, but your main reason for dining out is the food and they fit the bill nicely. Prices about average.

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen specializes in local seafood, if we cannot source it locally it is sourced off the East Coast of the USA! We do not serve seafood from any other area. We of course never serve any imported seafood. We truly believe in supporting American Fishermen and Shrimpers!
