It's on an island 200 yards from the beach so location is impressive. They run specials that change weekly I believe and ALL the seafood is fresh. We had some of the best calamari we have ever tasted and believe me we have had a...bunch. I had a cajun seafood medley which came with shrimp, scallops, salmon, sausage and white fish. It was excellent!More

Acme is one of our “go tos” when we are in town. The food and service are amazing. We had Rachel most recently and she was quick and efficient with our large group. Can’t wait to go back!

Before coming to IOP for the week we were recommended several local restaurants. We went to two of them before stopping in to ACME. I won’t mention the other 2 places because they weren’t bad just not what we expected from reviews, over charged for...what we were served. Like I said not bad just meh. Then we went into ACME…COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! 1st off Jarod, I can’t say enough about him, attentive without being annoying, was always around if we needed anything or recommendations, a good laugh and the correct pronunciation for their french green beans lol etc, if you’re fortunate enough to have him as your server consider yourself lucky!! The food was AMAZING, the 1st meal where all four of us were blown away, it was delicious, more food than we could have enjoyed at a very fair price. I had the Carolina Combo, the short ribs were tender and flavorful, the pecan fried chicken was crispy and juicy, the sides Mac and cheese and Brussels were all equally delicious. Can’t say enough t about ACME, do your self a favor and make sure you stop in!More

My family and I visited Acme Lowcountry Kitchen for dinner. Our server, Mytch, was fabulous- attentive and funny! The food was delicious as well. My mother-in-law raves about the succotash with fresh shrimp and my father-in-law had the broiled seafood platter. Both were terrific. We’ll...definitely be back!More

We ordered something we probably wouldn't have based on our waiter Travis's recommendation, and we're glad we did. The succotash with scallops was incredible, and the crab cakes were great too. We'll be back next time, for sure!
