We were excited and planned in advance to eat here, following our visit to The Center for Birds of Prey, based on the favorable reviews of Seewee's authentic lowcountry food. Bad, bad, bad decision! There were only two positives to our experience: best hushpuppies, ever, and the atmosphere of the restaurant. That is it. Period. Now the negatives: It was... More

Several of us went to Seewee for lunch after visiting Birds of Prey, and it was a great decision. Everyone had seafood of some kind and no one was disappointed with their meal. There offer a fairly wide selection of various items which can be prepared either broiled or fried. Lunch was topped off by a selection of one of... More

The family ate here after zip lining. The fried shrimp and the peel and eat shrimp are fresh, local and highly recommended. The service was prompt and courteous and the place was very rustic but comfortable.

This is a little out of the way gem. We were out in that area and visited. There is plenty of parking to the side of the restaurant. Lunch has a number of specials along with the menu items. There's plenty of seafood and lots of home cooking. Appetizers, salads, sandwiches and full meals are available. The menu has whole... More

We have eaten here for years and the past few times it just wasn't the same. We were seated quickly and thats the last good thing that happened. Our food took almost an hour to arrive. The couple seated next to us had their food and were out of the restaurant before our food even arrived. We questioned the server... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch after visiting Isle of Palms. We read about this restaurant in a travel guide, we also called the place to make sure we could bring our dog, and yes it is pet friendly. We sat at the outdoor area under a beautiful Live oak tree cover in Spanish Moss. Even tough it was... More

Our party of five -- three adults, two preteens -- was seated right away -- and that was the only thing that was quick about our visit. While the restaurant was crowded, it wasn't packed to the rafters. We waited a long time for hush puppies, drinks, etc. We had a nearly impossible time getting our server's attention when we...

Oh my what a pleasant surprise. This was recommended by a friend but read some other reviews and saw the outside and wasn't so sure. Other than the bathrooms which were outside with doors that barely locked and a pretend air -conditioner, the rest of the experience was GREAT!! The waitress brought hush puppies 1st thing which were hot and... More

We have family in Awendaw, and the Seewee Restaurant is a regular stop when we visit the area. We love the casual vibe and the good food. The vegetables are seasoned to perfection, and the seafood is always fresh. If you are looking for fine dining, you might want to skip the Seewee, but if you want good, basic food,... More

My husband and I were in town with my parents and sisters for a beach vacation. We're from the area, but have all moved away. My mom wanted to go to Seewee for dinner, so we joined her and my dad. We were seated right away. The menu is filled with delicious Southern favorites. I ordered chicken fried steak with... More
