The scallops and shrimp were so fresh and delicious at RB's that I wanted to go back there again before we left for home. We have eaten here almost on every Charleston trip. Their steampot is usually what I get, but this time I opted for shrimp and scallops pan fried ever so slightly to not take anything away from... More

Love to eat lunch at RB's. I ordered the shrimp and it was a good portion for lunch and the flavor was so fresh. My husband ordered the oysters and they were succulent and fresh as well. Loved sitting on the deck and watching all the boats come in , great atmosphere.

Let me begin eith the parking lot. Each parking spot has concrete separators and a bright yellow sign that warned me that this parking lot is gor customers only. Very tasteless, unfriendly and should've been a warning to not eat here.... I arrived at 11:50 am for lunch. No crowd, and got a window seat with a great view of... More

Tami, it's very disheartening to see that your visit missed the mark. I would like to mention that we have to be very clear about our parking because there is construction in the area, and we've had problems with people using our lot for other businesses. It's important to us that you leave full and happy and enjoy your food,... More

R B's is not consistent. You never know what you're going to get. This visit, most of food was good but service way too slow. Our waitress had too many tables to wait on. Initial drinks took 25 minutes or so. My fried oysters were good, but my collards just so-so. Disappointed in red rice--looked & tasted like yesterday's leftovers.... More

It's certainly disappointing to see that your visit wasn't everything it could've been. I'll be touching base with the team to see what exactly was causing the slow down in service. It's important to note that the food we serve each day is prepared fresh and if something is amiss for you, the team will fix it right away. I... More

There were small water craft moving in and out of the area. .The interior was decorated in authentic fishing nets, ropes, lights all maritime gear.
