This was the first place we ate at after a long trip from North GA. We had two children with us and the staff quickly put a table together for the 6 of us. The bar food was good as was the service. Would eat here again.

Visited here while the storm brewed on the beach. The food was awesome and more than enough to eat. The drink list has multiple choices to choose from.

My husband's sister and her hubby came to visit for the weekend (they live in the country). They wanted seafood! We live close to the beach....so we popped over to Isle of Palms. The Banana Cabana was packed inside, but they had a couple of tables opened outside. (The inside isn't very attractive and it was very loud). We were... More

Sounds like you all had the perfect family-style meal at our place! We're so glad you brought your sister and her husband over for a beach-side seafood meal. We hope you'll make it back soon for some crab dip on the patio! Many thanks, Gary and Michael More

Went for lunch on a hot summer day. We both had the special Fried Shrimp/ seasoned fries. It was excellent, light and tasty and only $6.99. Service was great as our waiter was happy and efficient. Got complimentary iced tea for our walk on the beach,just outside their back door. We will be back.

This is our families favorite place to eat. The fried shrimp with the calypso mashed potatoes are my favorite. The back deck with live music is always fun. A great place to go and just chill.

Food and service were fine, but nothing special. Good kids menu options. Great location right on beach.

We hate to hear this, Lizzie! Sounds like we could step up our game where the service is concerned -- we'll do that! Thanks for the feedback on the food too. We're sorry your shrimp didn't taste great. We'll be looking into it. Take care, Gary and Michael More

The grilled shrimp and scallops were delicious, the singer announced that we had just got married and played a song for us, waitress gave us free pie and everyone clapped and congratulated us,unlike the staff of The Palms who never even commented on our event

Banana Cabana is a nice place to grab a quick bite right on the beach in Isle of Palms, S.C. I strongly recommend the he crab soup as an appetizer. The crab cake sandwich and flounder sandwich are both delicious. Prices are reasonable.
