We visited here with my family of 8 during our beach vacation. After a couple nights of mediocre food, we were hoping for at least one good meal this trip! Well we picked the right place for it! Food was delicious! Among our table, we had the specialty salad, crab cakes, filet, and the fried seafood-flounder, shrimp, scallops, and oysters.... More

Nice place located in a shopping plaza. Fills up quickly, I didn't count but they have approximately 20 tables, a small bar area and a very small entrance area. Food was okay, for an island that has limited eating establishments it was ok. The problem is there are other places on the island with OK food but they overlook the... More

Have been there on many occasions and love the place. It is a smallest place with limited seating so you will need a reservation. All the dishes are great but the She-Crab soup is to die for.

When we were seated menus were in our hands, water was on the table, and a smiling server was table side. (Almost as if they'd done something wrong) The She Crab soup is really very good! Both of us order broiled seafood plates, which were excellent. The food quality here is very good. Our server did a very nice job!... More

I took my parents here for lunch. We all absolutely loved the food, service and ambience. The location is easy to miss as the restaurant is tucked into a strip shopping center, but do yourself a favor and have either lunch or dinner here. The new owner is so friendly and the staff very helpful. I will definitely go back... More

Made reservations, seated immediately, smaller restaurant next to Harris Teeters, location is fine, service was friendly, attentive and accommodating, local favorite that was crowded with families and adult groups. Fresh fish dishes, daily specials, full cocktail bar and some good table wines, baked, grilled and especially fried seafoods were really good. Many different southern cakes and pies to finish it...

Great experience. They accommodated for over 14 people with no wait. Food came at a reasonable time and everything was delicious. Will definitely come back when we visit Charleston again.

We stopped here for lunch on a recent visit to the Isle of Palms. It's a charming spot in the Harris Teeter shopping center. We had she crab soup, which was good, but not as thick as some versions I've tried. I had broiled sea scallops and succotash, which was the vegetable of the day. Their succotash was corn, baby...

Tucked away in a shopping plaza, we didn't realize this place existed, let alone have perhaps the best cuisine on Isle of Palms. It's not a large facility, so make reservations. Service was very good. Parking can be a challenge on busy evenings.

This little place has great seafood and a nice atmosphere. I had the fried shrimp both times and it was delicious. Plus their cheese grits are the yummiest! Would definitely recommend highly.
