My first time in this city. Somebody recommended Plums, so I went, hankering for raw oysters. That's what I got, for a reasonable-but-not-real-cheap price, in a pleasant setting with notably friendly staff. A dozen oysters on the half-shell ..... SLURP, BURP, SIGH ! Washed down with good white wine.

You know this is a good place as at 12:30 on a Thursday we had to wait 30 minutes for a table, as the kitchen was slammed. Not a big issue though, we went to the bar, got a couple of drinks, went out the back door so we are now sitting overlooking the riverside park. Shortly a waitress offered to refresh our drinks and give us menus to look at. After 30 minutes we ordered a classic Ruben sandwich and Low country boil. Excellent!

Had my share of fried oysters and this was the best-fried oyster po boy ever. Fresh juicy plump, lightly fried, not greasy, and not heavily battered. Crowded but was seated inside looking out to the view. We had a sweet waitress who helped me with the local draft beer selection. Super casual and not expensive. Yes, we had to wait but the place was packed which almost always is a sign of great food.

On a Monday night with the restaurant only 2/3 full and a number of open tables it took 45 minutes to actually place an order only to have waitress return to say that they were out of the Plums Charcuterie. So we settled for a salad and an oyster appetizer as we gradually lost our appetite waiting. Needless to say it came after 1 hour of waiting.
Not sure why this place has stayed open this long with long waits even when it’s not busy. Afraid to think what would happen on a Friday or Saturday night.

We stopped into Plums for lunch on a busy weekday while the whole town seemed inundated with tourists. We were seated promptly but the place quickly filled while we waited for our order to come. We sampled the daily special offered - a fried soft shell crab sandwich which was excellent. My wife tried the chicken salad curry wrap which was also very good. While the food was fine, the service was inattentive and seemed inexperienced.
