Great view, food was off that day

First of all, this is a "Have to" stop for us every trip to Charleston. The Saturday we stopped was very busy. The portions were smaller than before. We had a basket of shrimp and scallops. The only bad part of the meal was the hush puppies, they were almost inedible as they were over cooked. The... read more

Great place for food and some inexpensive good food. The bartenders really had their game on. The kabobs are great. They make them fresh on the grill. Great views of the boats. If your lucky you might get to see a few Dolphins.

Have been before for mediocre food. On 8.29 the food was AWFUL. Hush puppies were fried to a dark brown crisp. Lobster rolls were more like lettuce rolls. The buns were filled with lettuce and celery, topped with an ounce of shredded lobster. If my spouse and I were alone we would have left the food and walked out, but... More

We met some friends for drinks and sat on the upper deck. They had comfortable couches to sit on while we enjoyed the view of Shem Creek looking at all the boats. The bartender was friendly and efficient. They had music playing, yet not so loud that you couldn't have a conversation with the people you were sitting with. It... More

We went here with two families and a total of six kids for lunch. The food was fantastic and we would definitely go back here again! We loved the jalapeño hush puppies and fried green tomatoes! Our entrées for everything from hamburgers to fish and it all was wonderful.

We had a late night meal here after a sunset cruise on the harbor. I had not heard great things about the food here, but we were pleasantly surprised. Food was reasonably priced, tasted good and was served quickly, even though the place was packed. Initially, we were told it would be an hour for a table, but were happily... More

Had dinner here when visiting Charleston and would come back again. The service and food were both great. Good way for a visiting "yankee" to get exposed to local southern cooking.

Loved the view, food, and service!! Definitely a spot I'd go back to! We had a group of ten, and our server handled our large number and separate checks excellently.
