Did not get to eat here. Arrived around 8 on a Thursday night, we were left standing in the entrance for 20 minutes waiting for someone to approach us. The young lady looked inside and saw empty tables and still told us we had to wait another 30 minutes. I could not understand how you had three empty tables and... More

Chef David has a hit with this place. People start showing up at 4:30 and its packed by a little after 5. Expect all your favorite low country foods with a creative twist. I have never seen so many sides offered at one place and they are all incredible. Prices are very reasonable by HHI standards, portions are large and... More

This dive was going downhill when we visited two years ago on a recommendation. Now it's just atrocious. We tried it again to give it a fair shake and ended up walking out after we were seated. The place wreaks like an old sweaty worn-out tennis shoe. The staff was beyond scarce despite a crowd. And the crowd here left... More

Was really looking forward to finally trying this place out as I have lived here three years now. Decided to head over before a flight out of town to kill some time. We got there just before they opened and the front door remained locked for several minutes after as the folks started to mildly pile up out front. All... More

Not a place to bring kids if u r in a hurry or they are hungry. While the food was good we waited over an hour for it. Service was equally slow and they ran out of many items.

All you here is how great this place is and how wonderful the chef is. Our trips to here are inconsistent at best. The eatery is an enigma of why people really enjoy it. We ordered food that they do not have, then when we do finally find something they have on hand, the side items were out of stock.... More

You really need to understand what's going on in your restaurant. We were greeted tonight by a rude hostess and had to wait over two hours for our meal. The food was good (not as good as other high end restaurants in the area) but nothing was offered during l that time. I agree with the post about cornbread -... More

Rule #1 of resturanting... if you have the word "cornbread" in your name, make sure you have cornbread. We were really excited about this restaurant having heard from a local that it was the place to go for a unique seafood meal. Everything was downhill from the moment we entered the door. We were there around 5pm and the hostess... More

Have to admit - the recent bad reviews had me worried, but we tried it anyway, because of some recommendations of friends. Not fast, but the food was great and the waiter (Brandon, I think - ) was great. Some of the items on the menu were a bit pricey - we stayed with fish sandwich, hamburger, etc. - they... More

My family of 7 went expecting a large variety of options but only found a small menu geared towards sea food lovers and vegetarians. Not only were we limited, but the prices were on the higher end. Our waitress was very rude and seemed to be upset we were there. Our food came out about 40 minutes after ordering. My... More
