My wife and I had a nice dinner here, food and drinks were good, people working here were good, we had seafood and salad. However, that evening we both felt off, especially me, not for food poisoning but it sure felt like the effects of sulfites or MSG in the food. Because of that we cannot go back. Too bad.

This local restaurant is a favorite of everyone in town. Shrimp and grits are specialty that everyone favors. Tuesday night has become Wings night and the locals gather for wings and beer or wine. We try to go at once a week and sometimes more often.

Husband and I had dinner here on our way traveling south on I 95. The restaurant is about 3 miles off the interstate, but worth the drive if you want to get away from all the chain restaurants. Husband had shrimp and grits and I had fried shrimp. Both were delicious. The waitress had warned my husband that the grits... More

We went here for a friend's birthday. It was noisy, food was slow and not the best. The atmosphere was decent but I just expected more. Especially for the price. Our kids enjoyed it but I can't say I'd go back again.

If you want a drink in Walterboro, you don't have many options. Main Street Bar and Grill has a full bar and a variety of food options. The bar was crowded when I was there. I had a local seafood combo plate, which was good. The prices were reasonable and they have happy hour specials.

Stopped in walterboro on our way to Florida, surprise surprise. The Italian restaurant was closed so we said "why not". My cocktail was delicious and my wife enjoyed her generous pour wine. We weren't particularly Hungary so we shared a bacon cheeseburger. It was huge and cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were great. This place definitely caters to locals but... More

This place is noisy - nothing there to soften the sound. The bar is in a separate room, thank goodness. The dining are is divided into two 2oom. We try to sit as far away form the front room and behind a partial wall. We were here for dinner. The wait was long for the food. I finally asked for... More

My wife and I ended up here on the recommendation of our waitress at Cracker Barrel a day earlier. I'm originally from South Carolina, but have been in California for over 40 years and was desperately in need of fresh shrimp. Walked in and wait staff said pick any table we wanted and was quickly there with menus and ready... More

I had a shrimp salad. Shrimp were tasty, probably frozen, and not grilled as advertised. For such a pricey salad I was dismayed to see lots of brown romaine in the bowl. My husband had shrimp and grits. Delicious, and definitely a heavy meal...extremely heavy.

Friendly place with a mix of family and professional patrons. A circular bar has a great view to a big TV screen and the bartenders are watching your drink as you watch TV. It was a Tuesday evening, but there were plenty of people there. The owner milled about the place the entire evening making sure everybody was being served... More
