Seafood in Historic Charleston

This is a well known family owned establishment that is easily located from the city market and a lot of the major downtown hotels. Be prepared to wait outside with very little seating in the heat. The food is delicious. The fried green tomatoes and grits appetizer was cheezy and just enough for 3... read more

excellent crab and shrimp dip and the whole fried flounder is a must! Hushpuppies are the best with a hint of sweetness to them. This is my all time favorite seafood restaurant and a must if I am anywhere near Charleston. The owner always visits the table and there is more food than you can possibly eat. Yes, it may... More

We were seated immediately and we ordered the Carolina Delight appetizer .... very yummy with delicious shrimp bathing in a parmesan sauce over a grit cake. They brought... More

Great food, we actually spoke to the owner who came to the table to thank us for coming in to the restaurant. Best seafood and sweet tea in South Carolina.

We were not impressed with this restaurant. Neither the food or the atmosphere met our expectations. Disappointing.

I loved how Eli greeted all of his customers. He was active with his staff. The lump crab cakes were awesome. I'm not a fan of coleslaw but loved theirs. Daniel our waiter was attentive. My neice thought their grits and fried green tomatoes were great. Not sure why they are not ranked higher. I loved it!

Yes this is a tourist destination and can be noisy at times, but I feel you get a meal at a decent price. I love the whole crispy flounder!

We ate there on a MONDAY evening! The food was fantastic and the owner came over to speak with us. I cannot say enough about the Shrimp and Grits! The most tender shrimp I have ever had! The waitress was so helpful. She listened to what we were ordering and advised us of what the best options would be!
