Such a fun restaurant

We enjoyed very much our experience at this restaurant...especially the two sisters who were serving that day. The food was great and very different from our usual fare in Kansas. Thank you for a great time!

Went to Gullah grub for lunch today. I had the ribs which were meaty and delicious, my husband had the chopped barbecue with the red rice and collards, and our friend had the gumbo. We all liked the food though our friend thought it was a little pricey. It was a little pricey for lunch but was well worth it.... More

I've eaten here twice, five years apart. One thing I will say is that the place is not lacking in character. There is artwork everywhere. EVERYWHERE. It's a little overwhelming to take in so much visual stimulation at once, but give your eyes a few minutes to adjust. The menu can be a little tricky if you have dietary restrictions.... More

We arrived and they hadn't opened yet so we visited the art gallery across the street. When we checked again, the place was packed! We tried everything of course and the owner and chef treated us great!

The food was good. They have a seafood soup/chowder that is amazing but its pricy for the type of place it is and not a very large serving for the price. The squash casserole is probably my favorite side. Very no frills atmosphere and could be tidier. Our server seemed new and/or uncertain and had to ask someone in the... More

Sarah and Bill Green are wonderful. Try the gumbo. Low Country gumbo is not New Orleans gumbo. What a beautiful historic building. The owners are charming. This is a wonderful place to stop for history and good food. Get to know the Low Country culture with these wonderful people and their local Low Country Cuisine.

This place can be hard to find, but the owner has been on Martha Stewart 3 times for his food. real spices, food just like they have been making it for 200 years. a bit expensive, but a real adventure in the Lowcountry

18 of us chose Gullah Grub for supper while camping at nearby Hunting Island State Park. The restaurant normally closes at 5:30, but stayed open just for us! Sweet grass basket artist Jery Taylor was there, showed us her beautiful baskets and even helped with waitressing duties. Even though some of the orders were slow coming out of the kitchen,... More

We stopped here for lunch and were entranced by the local artwork and the videos featuring the chef/owner and his recipes. My husband had the BBQ chicken--some of the best I've ever tried. The macaroni and cheese looked strange, but it was delicious. I had red rice, a dish I'd never had before, and found it delicious, with a mysterious... More

The chef/owner was locking up when we arrived, but he opened the door and let the two of us in for dinner, though no one else was left in the place. He and his wife (I assume) were exceptionally hospitable, taking the time to talk with us at length. The cornbread was absolutely superb, the soups (shrimp gumbo and she-crab)... More
