We had salad and crabcake. Both were excellent. The service was quick, friendly and outstanding. The parking was ample which is rare for Isle of Palms. The only item which left it less than excellent is that the restaurant has grown over the years with addition here, addition there. The only... read more

Can't beat the view of the Intracostal Waterway and IOP Marina while enjoying brunch! Excellent service and the food was great! We had to get on the road so couldn't partake of the bloody Mary bar but others were enjoying it!! We love this place!

We came across this restaurant through Trip Advisor. It is a beautiful relaxing location over the harbor. I had the blackened mahi Carolina style. I enjoyed it tremendously. Tom our waiter was very pleasant. The only disturbing thing for the evening was a very loud young boy with vocal outburst quite frequently. I am not for sure why they kept... More

Went for dinner on two separate occasions. We went for the more informal restaurant on the top floor rather than the more formal restaurant on the ground floor. Good food, nice variety, cooked well, service mostly good, fantastic view. We will be back

What a wonderful start to our vacation in Isle of Palms. We made a reservation based on recommendations from other Trip Advisors users and we were quite pleased. We were seated in the dining room next to the windows with a beautiful view, even our three children commented on the view and enjoyed watching the boats coming in and out... More

The food is good and so is the atmosphere. The service is good too. It is not the best restaurant in the Charleston area but it is a nice place to eat on the Isle of Palms.

We have been coming here for years and prefer the casual top floor bar/restaurant. The food is decent, the service dependable, and the waterfront view is spectacular. Great place to catch a beautiful sunset!

We were very please with the service and the quality of the food. One of our best meals on the island and great views. I am a little puzzled why the place isn't near the top of the list.

We had a wonderful experience by having Brandon as our waiter. He was very attentive to the children's needs and made great suggestions for our meals. The food was delicious and the service was superb!😎

We are visiting Isle of Palms from NYC and we had a wonderful experience at the restaurant. The food was delicious, we specifically the Charleston Sea Crab soup and the tuna prepared Carolina style and the peanut butter pie! The service was impeccable! Our waiter was very friendly, professional and efficient. I am a vegetarian and they were extremely accommodating... More
