My wife and I had a great dinner last night at this restaurant. It was one of the best crabcakes I’ve had on the East Coast. My wife had the shrimp and grits and said they were great also. If you have a chance to...visit this restaurant ask for Garrett as a waiter. He was great.More

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen is top notch. Food is outstanding, and a great mix of local fresh seafood and other local dishes. Our server Travis was equally top notch, attentive and there with a smile whenever you needed him, but never obtrusive. And quite funny. This...is a place we had been planning on getting to for a while and we will be going back quickly. Allow extra time to find parking, that’s a little challenging. As the only negative it’s not a deterrent, but one thing they should address.More

Wow! Expected a wait but lucked out - arrived just before 1 pm last Tuesday and we got a table immediately. Our waitress was so sweet, I think her name is Allyson, (written on top of receipt), and she was very accommodating to my gluten...free diet. She knew her menu items really well, recommended an omelet for me, and double checked with the kitchen (my request) on the gluten free status of Holy City Hash that my husband ordered. Sure enough, it wasn't gluten free... Well, my King Street omelet did not disappoint! I nixed the onions, added mushrooms and also added pimento cheese to my grits, (had to make up for no toast, right?). Deeelisshhh! Best tasting grits I've ever had. An added plus - hubby used the restroom and said it was clean! That's usually a good sign of a clean back-of-the-house too!More

Acme low country grill is by far the best restaurant in isle of palms. I have reviewed a lot of restaurants in the isle palms area and I've never been as blown away as I was last night. I got the special, pecan red snapper...which was drizzled with bacon jam over perfectly cooked grits and... it was DELICIOUS perfectly cooked all around. I also got a side of truffle mac and cheese which had the best truffle to cheese ratio ever! Las but not least me and the rest of my family got a fried green tomato appetizer which could of been fried a little more but were topped beautifully with pimento cheese and chow chow made up for the slight undercooked tomatoes. The restaurant had great service and we were happily waited by Joel, he was polite and friendly. Good amount of seating both outside and inside. All the employees had to wear masks which me and my family loved. Acme is also a eco friendly restaurant with paper straws and reusable cups. Great food, great service, great seating, what more could you want. A+ overall Follow me if you are interested in Roswell GA food, Isle palms SC food, Marietta food, and Hilton Head SC food.More

We came to Acme on Saturday night with a group of 8. The wait was short and quick for a large group. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their food. I split with a friend because we couldn't pick what we wanted....We ended up with the Whistle Stop Shrimp n Grits and the Fried Pecan Chicken Dinner. The grits were amazing. I will come back to get the grits every time. They were cooked exactly how they should have been! Loved this place and the atmosphere! Will be back!More
