Fabulous food and great service. Fresh, local seafood. I recommend the shrimp and grits. The seafood chowder was also excellent.

Our expectations were somewhat tempered by the fact that this place is in the middle of a strip mall, but this turned out to be one of the best meals we had while visiting the Charleston area. The interior is very nicely decorated with a local/nautical theme. On the downside, some of the tables were very close to each other,... More

After reading great reviews on Trip Advisor for this restaurant, I fortunately was able to secure a reservation during my recent vacation. A reservation is a must as this restuarant is small and I watched several patrons being turned away as they did not have reservations. Who would have believed a resturant situated between a grocery store and a Pizza... More

Went for lunch at 12:15 and only a few tables were occupied. Service was excellent. Quickly seated by a hostess and immediately given menus. By the time our waitress came, we had decided and I placed my food order along with my drink. THEN, she tells me about a special they had, and I changed my order. My spouse, though,... More

End of a nice vacation! We wanted a great restaurant and this was recommended! It did NOT disappoint! Crab stuffed shrimp, spinach pasta, locally grown sides, and great deserts! Great service! Definitely a must!

Lunch on! Jumbo Lump Crab is by far one of the best after tastes in years! The Shrimp salad displayed pecans, goat cheese, fresh plumogranate seeds and grilled shrimp made the woman of my life smile.

We stopped here for lunch and left broke and dissatisfied. $50 for sandwiches and soup that were just ok. They love the mayo here. The club sandwich was oozing mayo everywhere. The tarter sauce was mayo with pickles in it. We were the only ones here for lunch and they say us by the kitchen doors. The service was good,... More

A shining star on the island, especially now during the off season. Reservations still needed. Very fresh seafood and they have whole fried flounder! New England clam chowder reminds me of my days in New England, rich, creamy and full of chopped clams. Our party also sampled the whole flounder, fried shrimp, and fried flounder. Batter is very light, allowing... More

I first learned of this restaurant in a book I was reading where the author kept mentioning it as her favorite place to visit on the island, and I made a mental note to look it up and try it on our next visit. My husband and I were here celebrating our honeymoon, the week just before Hurricane Matthew, we... More
