Good, prompt service, large interior, a number of local specials. Fair value for a near-beach resort location. Call ahead for reservations during the summer. Recommended.

Choosing Acme for my mother's birthday dinner was perfect. The seafood there is phenomenal, and if you show ID to prove it's your birthday, they'll give you 40% off of an entree. I would personally recommend the blackened shrimp!

Hi there! If you come to Acme on your birthday we give you a discount on your entree equal to how old you are. We do ask to see your ID. So if you turn 50 you get 50% off! Thanks Bobby Simons

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen specializes in local seafood, if we cannot source it locally it is sourced off the East Coast of the USA! We do not serve seafood from any other area. We of course never serve any imported seafood. We truly believe in supporting American Fishermen and Shrimpers!
