I remember going to this restaurant with my family when I was a teen. I continued the tradition taking my family out after spending the day on the beach. The food was fantastic and the service was still excellent. The star of the menu is...More

Highly recommended by friends and Trip Advisor reviews. Excellent service and attentive wait staff. Maybe it is what I ordered but I was disappointed in my broiled trio. It was well cooked but lacking in flavor. My wife had diver scallops and her meal was...More

Best place we've eaten on our trip to Isle of Palms and Charleston! Amazing crab cakes and key lime pie. Owner was extremely welcoming and made us feel like family!

We are complaining because this happened on a last visit & now happened again. The best fried whole flounder in S. C. is at a restaurant in Newberry...the almost complete lack of a batter coating makes it so. We asked for very little batter on...More

Very good local seafood. Owner greeted us a family owed business for 30 years. Service was great and fast even though the restaurant was full.

The service was good. Parking was easy. The food was just ok. I had the pan seared scallops. They were good but the risotto was just ok and I didn't finish it. I think sticking to the traditional seafood fixes may be a better option...More

Reviews can make or break small restaurants and this one deserves a RAVE review! We always seek out local, non-chain restaurants when we travel and this family-owned, long-lasting, island jewel DID NOT DISAPPOINT! The owner personally sat us, checked on us and even took our...More
