good fried seafood

If you are looking for fried seafood and maybe just a burger this is a great place. Basic fried seafood at a very good price. I usually get the shrimp and oysters. Both are excellent. But their she crab soup is the best. They don't always have it but when they do its delicious. I prefer it to... read more

If you are looking for fine cuisine, keep on cruising. This place specializes in low budget deep fried meals served on disposable dishes. The servings are generous but as others have suggested it all tastes pretty much the same. Except the canned beans taste like the can. But you can eat on the porch and listen to the waves and...

We drove over fromCharleston to find a seafood restaurant for dinner. Most places were packed & had no view. We came across this place & decided to stop bc it had great reviews. All in all an ok place. The crab cake was not very good. The white fish was ok. My husband said his shrimp was just ok as... More

The food was very good--fried shrimp were battered well, not too heavy breading. Prices are much more reasonable than some other nearby seafood spots on Folly. And you get a ton of food so it is possible to even share an entree, depending on how hungry you are. Service is quick but very pleasant. My only advice against the Sandcastle,... More

We had driven past the Sandcastle for 5 days before we decided to give it a try. It never seemed busy, so we figured there was a reason. Well, we were wrong! The Sandcastle is a hidden gem! The food was very good and the prices were fair. The portions are huge! We split two shrimp platters between 4 of... More

There was no wait to eat, everywhere else was to crowed to eat right away without a long wait. We were HUNGRY! The food was good and the service was as well no problems there. Yes the food is fried and it is not your fancy seafood place. I would call it a little whole in the wall gem. I... More

Our family loves this place! We have started a tradition of making it our dinner after beach trips during the summer. We pulled up one day just before they opened and my 4 year old cried because she wanted the okra so bad. It truly is one of our favorites (even if the fish on the wall never got battries)... More

Doesn't look like they do much business, but our food was really good. This is a bare minimum atmosphere, but we were here for food not ambiance. Situated right on the Folly river.
