This is our families favorite place to eat. The fried shrimp with the calypso mashed potatoes are my favorite. The back deck with live music is always fun. A great place to go and just chill.

The grilled shrimp and scallops were delicious, the singer announced that we had just got married and played a song for us, waitress gave us free pie and everyone clapped and congratulated us,unlike the staff of The Palms who never even commented on our event

Banana Cabana is a nice place to grab a quick bite right on the beach in Isle of Palms, S.C. I strongly recommend the he crab soup as an appetizer. The crab cake sandwich and flounder sandwich are both delicious. Prices are reasonable.

A thin edge between casual and worn/old, to us the place needed a little more attention to how it looked, both at the entrance, inside, and especially outside . We ate outside on a Sunday night in June, the outside area is behind a sand...More
