One of the best meals we’ve ever had! Everything tasted so fresh, the service was spot on and the atmosphere was wonderful. We started with the Breach Inlet Clams and House Made Mozzarella with Heirloom Tomatoes and Pesto. Both appetizers were “handpicked” and “local” and tasted incredibly fresh. Our entrees, the Parmesan Crusted Salmon and the special Pan Roasted Grouper... More

Some of the best seafood we have ever eaten. The stuffed shrimp and flounder dinner with sweet potato fries were wonderful. The asian tuna and parmesan crusted salmon were also excellent. Top this off with some great wine choices and great friends adds up to a wonderful meal. Great food and service with decent prices make this a great place... More

This a nice little café with pleasant décor and a decent menu. It's convenient if you are staying on Isle of Palms, but not worth traveling to given all the other choices. They have specials and fresh seafood selections. It's a bit noisy and the tables are a little too close so you hear everything your neighbours say. We had... More

The Long Island Café is located in a strip shopping center next to a grocery store in the heart of Isle of Palms, a beach resort town. It is small with limited décor, but none of that matters. The wait staff were personable, attentive and accommodating. The food was outstanding. The she crab soup, a specialty of Charleston, was thick... More

This was a very nice, white tablecloth type restaurant. We made reservations and probably would not have got in otherwise. The food was excellent - not one complaint in our party of 6. Everything was so tasty - I chose the Mahi Mahi with veg of the day and mashed potatoes - even down to the broccoli! My chocolate orange... More

The food was excellent, the people very friendly and a very nice atmosphere. We ate there three times during our two week stay, and each time the food was excellent, not just good but excellent. The wait staff suggested the specials, saying that they love the way the chef cooked it, and you could tell they were sincere. We got... More
