My wife and I received a recommendation from Dave, the fish guy, to give this restaurant a try. We did and were very pleased with the food, service and price. It was bustling and busy place and we want to pass along our recommendation.

This was the first restaurant my husband and I visited while in Charleston last week. While the price of the meal was a little high the food was well worth it. Turned out to be one of our better meals in Charleston.
