Outstanding restaurant for food, atmosphere, and service.

All of us locals eat here Be sure to make reservations because this restaurant is always busy even during the off season. It doesn't matter what you order because you will never be disappointed - everything is super delicious. Make sure you save room for one of their fantastic deserts.

Went to the restaurant for dinner recently. Quite a busy place for off season. Greater and seated quickly. Service was quite good, attentive and helpful. She crab soup was average for the area, we try the she crab at almost every place we have lunch or dinner. Party of four of us, and oysters were vert good, shrimp and grits... More

The family celebrated my husbands 48th birthday here. We eat out allot but this meal was over the top delicious. Birthday worthy for sure! The server's recommendations on appetizers were a hit. Birthday Man had a steak (cooked med. rare) and it was cooked perfectly and was ridiculously delicious. We've spent twice that on past steak dinners which weren't half... More

The service is often spotty in this convenient restaurant, but the food is usually quite good. It is located near the Harris Teeter grocery store just off the Isle of Palms Connector. Very convenient.

We didn't know what to expect when we pulled up but from the time the door opened until we left we were happy! We were greeted at the door with a smile and seated promptly (we did make reservations). The room is lovely furnished with oil lamps and coastal decorations tastefully done, cloth on every table. A nice full bar... More

Lunch stop for us...She Crab soup for my husband, which he said was excellent. I had the flounder--ordered as the sandwich because I wanted only one side--and they were very accommodating when I requested it without the roll because of a wheat allergy. Both dishes were served promptly -- hot, delicious. My favorite part of the meal was the coleslaw--very... More

My husband loves seafood. I don't. He ordered the combination seafood platter, lightly breaded. There are 4 choices and you can get it broiled too. He is hard to please but is now recommending this place to friends. I love their sandwiches. I have actually made 3 meals from their Classic Club and one side. The turkey BLT is also... More

We are from Fl. and have a few really good seafood restaurants where we live so we are pretty picky about our seafood. Our visit to Long Island Café turned out excellent. I had the grouper special and my wife had the blackened redfish special. Both were excellent with really big portion. We split the shrimp grits appetizer which is... More
