“Breakfast, lunch and dinner...all GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We spend the winter on Isle of Palms in Wild Dunes. For a number of years we've enjoyed many wonderful meals around IOP, Sullivan's Island, Mount Pleasant and Charleston but until last winter when we read about a new chef at Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, we never gave the place a try. It has a rustic, unassuming appearance that could be easy to overlook. This place has become one of our favorites for any meal. The many different Benedict's and omelette are terrific at breakfast. The burgers and fish tacos are great...we especially like the "ragin Cajun" and "downtowner" burgers; and the fried grouper tacos. The Carolina succotash (with either shrimp, scallops, or chicken) is excellent for lunch or dinner. The succotash is an interesting combination of butter beans, corn, field peas, bacon in a delicious sauce....mmmmm. The fried shrimp, oysters, and flounder (which you can find in many places) are all terrific...lightly coated and not greasy and heavy.
All in all the wait staff are all friendly, helpful and competent...they seem to enjoy working there. It's not uncommon to see the chef come out to ask how you're enjoying your meal. If you're thinking about dining on a Thursday evening, you'd better call for a reservation...it's lobster night...3 petite tails and 2 sides for $19. We love Acme!

“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Burger was tasty and the green fried tomatoes was wonderful. Fish was very good but small in portion. Fries were dry and the food did not arrive for about an hour after we ordered. We were there far too long for a slow season.

“Fabulous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

My husband and I had our New Years breakfast here. Yummy, yummy! I had the chicken & biscuit sandwich and grits. The chicken was fried but it didn't have a heavy batter, it was light and flavorful. Service was pleasant and courteous. I will return for breakfast, lunch or dinner when we come back to Charleston.

“Brunch & Breakfast - Best on the Island!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

The best breakfast and Bloody Mary's on the Island! Their BLT Bloody Mary is awesome and has a bacon swizzle! Famous for their Eggs Benedict and many varieties to choose from - standard to Crab Cake Benedicts, Beef Tenderloin Benedicts, Surf & Turf Benedicts, and more to choose from!! You will love it!

“Good southern food served by friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This is a true local place. It was our first time to visit Isle of Palms and we found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. The only downfall all evening was trying to locate the place. It was a little foggy and there was no lit sign. It was worth the search though. (For anyone looking--its directly across from the firestation). It's not a real fancy place, but was nice to get good food and a smile. My husband had chicken Alfredo and I had a chicken sandwich with pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes. Everyone around us kept commenting how good their meals were and when regular customers came in the wait staff knew just what they wanted. I was impressed. Our waiter was Byron. He was excellent. He took very good care of us, and when a large party came in and he was helping them--another waiter came over to check on us. Real teamwork. Everyone seemed happy to be there and the employees truly seemed to enjoy working there. Before we left we tried a piece of the peanut butter pie. Creamy goodness with ganache on top. I will definately visit this place again when I come back to Isle of Palms.
