We came here with a last minute decision based off of trip advisor reviews. It was Thursday night at about 8pm. There was live music and we were able to be sat right away outside--but basically every other table was filled! (Which to me is a good thing).

Thank you, I am glad that you enjoyed everything. I am sorry about the coconut shrimp. I can relate, when my wife was pregnant. Food was the only pleasure. Please let me know the next time you are visiting and I will personally make sure you get your coconut shrimp. Sincerely, Ron Hill, owner 843-437-2546 More

Relaxed atmosphere, crab legs, and beer. How can you go wrong? We had the artichoke/crab dip as an appetizer and it was very yummy! My other half thought the crab was a bit overcooked (and he loves crab), but I couldn't tell the difference. The waitress was all business and though it kind of bothered me, I appreciated how thorough... More

Me and my sisters cleaned our plates that how delicious their food was . Great service had to wait 20 minutes but it was worth the wait. I would wait an hour for the food.
