“The best shrimp and grits!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2010

This place had the best shrimp and grits I've had yet. It beat a lot of places in Charleston such as the Hominy Grill and Jestine's. Give it a shot next time you're out there!

“Best dining experience of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

Excellent food from the soup to the table-side salad to the main entree. But save room for the dessert! The apple caramel pie was phenominal and more than large enough for two to split. We will definitely return on our next visit. We also dined at the Chart House this trip, but it was a disappointment in comparison. Views of the river are limited through the small windows, but the partial view was still enjoyable.

“A sorry disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2009

We went there expecting to have the highly advertised crispy fried grouper. They were out supposedly because it was out of season-funny, other restaurants served grouper. Instead we had their special of scallops. I specifically asked to have the scallops cooked medium instead of seared which was on the menu. They were extremely undercooked. If it wasn't for the young waitress who tried her best to please us, it would have been a complete flop. The interior was dark and had the ambience of a closed down warehouse. This was during Octoberfest and there were tons of people eating all along River Street. Even with the hawker outside offering $5.00 off the ticket, there were only a handful of diners there. Maybe the outside crowd knew about the quality.

“Enjoyed immensly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

The ambiance is nice, this place is in the bottom of an old warehouse facing the river. I had the sauteed lump crab meat and it was DELICIOUS! The server was attentive and I had no complaints!
