Moving north from a great stay in the Keys and Santee, SC was the stop over. Directly across from the Hampton Inn is the Captains Quarters... and highly recommended by the hotel staff. They did not disappoint. The facility is neat, clean and well run. After a short wait for a table, the place was packed at 6P we were... More

When you're on the road, it's really nice to find a local establishment that's so much better than the usual, run-of-the-mill chain restaurants. It's moderately priced, but given the quality, it's a bargain. Our server, Melanie, was outstanding in her knowledge of the dishes, and her recommendations were spot-on. Just a lovely, friendly lady who obviously takes pride in her... More

Food was pricey but good. The waitress seemed put off at our choice of sharing a meal. We did so because of the hour not because of the price. As the evening progressed and we ordered wine and dessert she seemed to be better about the plate sharing. Atmosphere was good and the mahi mahi was tasty as were the... More

A gem of a seafood spot in a small golf town. Ate there three times in four nights. Great service, great drinks, great selection, great food!

This is a great place for dinner (only open 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.). Friendly staff and owners. Have a great local following but serve all the same.

We decided to try this restaurant as it was right across the street from our hotel. The decor was very nice. Service was so so; wasn't the friendliest server. Food was about average; nothing spectacular. There seemed to be some confusion with the front about seating people, but we didn't have to wait that long.

Only open for dinner, this place has a loyal following. Menu is extensive with an emphasis on seafood (nb Captains Quarters). By all means, do check the daily specials. They're too good to pass up. Restaurant has a fully stocked bar. Although the amount of food for each plate was more than adequate, a smaller portion, of greater quality, would... More
