Either for lunch or dinner stop by and get your fill of seafood or whatever you'd like. Right off the beach serving loud puppies and a good assortment of seafood. Our favorite was the seafood burrritto. Also loved the shrimp and scallop dish

Pretty cool place for a quick lunch break from beach. Great mixed drinks a bit pricy. Fried shrimp platter is ok, not sure if it was fresh, I would hope so but had a bit of frozen taste.

My husband and I had lunch there during our visit to Isle of Palms. I had the crab cake sandwich and he had the flounder basket. We also go the "loud puppies" which is their version of hush puppies.

Food was overcooked and the oil it was cooked in obviously needed to be changed. Besides the food was overcooked. The entertainment was nice but does not make up for the poor quality food.

We loved this beach bar. The drinks were awesome and so was the food! We went at 3 in the afternoon so there was no wait. The service was great too!

Terrible. Do not go here! Would be better off some where else. Our food was not good. The service was slow. Ordered some frozen drinks that were watered down with no liquor. And the "manager" we talked to was also a complete #*&%. Can't believe how this place does business like this.

We went in for cocktails and stayed for dinner. Rick was quite the entertaining bartender. We went back the next night and had the BEST scallops! They were huge, cooked perfectly and not overpriced. Will definitely go back if we make it back to IOP.

We stop here every time we are in Charleston. The Mojo chicken and hush puppies are both delicious. Always a favorite!
