We stopped here on our way from Myrtle Beach to Charleston. It's directly on Highway 17 about 15-20 miles north of Charleston. It doesn't look like much from the outside maybe, but the moment you walk through the door you are thrown back into time. You are greeted with a very friendly "hello y'all" and are escorted to your table.... More

We popped in here on the way back from Myrtle Beach to Charleston for lunch, having been told to wait 20 mins for a table at the mediocre Big Tuna in Georgetown. Wow, was that 40 minutes it took us to get there worth every second! Fried shrimp here is the best we have had anywhere, you can tell it... More

Seewee Restaurant is about 8 miles up 17N from Mt. Pleasant. They have great seafood in this old general store. You have to get there early to get a seat or you will be waiting. They do not take reservations so it is first come, first served. The portions are huge and the price is very good. A lot of... More

Ok so the food AMAZING! OH MAN. The ambiance was great. The history was on the menu - also great. We ordered a cheeseburger & fried pork chop for the kids. They loved it. The adults ordered fried shrimp and seewee grilled whitefish. The sides are amazing and the desserts - YES! Everything is homemade. The reason it's not 5... More

I was so excited to eat at See Wee. I spent a long time researching where to go for good, old-fashioned fresh fried/grilled seafood and great She-Crab soup, and See Wee won by a landslide. We trekked out to the restaurant (about 45 minutes from where we were staying) and were immediately won over by the vibe and the plates... More

This place could put a few people off on their first visit, but let me assure you, the food is great and the service equal to it. The building is old, but has a lot of character to it, having once been a general store, This is southern cooking at its best, especially the sea food. My friend ordered the... More

Being good the first time doesn't always mean that it is worth a second trip. This is food worth coming back for. While She Crab soup is not my favorite, I may have been converted. Our second trip here was to concentrate on this specialty. Fantastic fried shrimp, delicately seasoned and crisp or double the steamed shrimp appetizer for a... More

We come here every season for dinner. It is a favorite not too far from Wild Dunes. The seafood is always crisp, light and fresh but we love the sides they offer. A lot of varieties at our dinner table we all were very pleased. The only negative was the crab cakes they were thick, with out a lot of... More

What a find! Seewee restaurant not beautiful but certainly they know how to cook!! My wife got the grilled whiting and I got the grouper with garlic shrimp. Delicious food and it does get busy there. If you go you will agree with me and want to come back soon

What a wonderful place to eat! The little out of town, but worth the trip 10 times over! Wonderful backcountry atmosphere. Incredible seafood, incredible sides, incredible Keylime pie.
