Wadmalaw Island

Hi, on Friday, I will be heading to the Firefly Vodka distillery, are there any good restaurants or bars on Wadmalaw Island? Also, any "must -see or dos?" Since we will be there, I don't want to miss anything important :)

Swing around to the tea plantation - the only working one in North America. BTW, the distillery site has a winery also - try a tasting.

The tea plantation and Fiirefly are in rural areas. There are some excellent restaurants on Maybank Hwy (closer to Folly Road).

Be sure to stop by Angel Oak while you are in the area.

Wadmalaw is primarily an agricultural area, better restaurants on John's Island.

Fat Hen is only open for dinner, Mustard Seed is on James Island.

Tomato Shed at Stono Market (Main Road) is good, as is Sunrise Bistro (intersection of Main/Bohicket/Maybank), both on John's Island.

My suggestions have all been more or less w/lunch in mind. All are also good for dinner, except for Sunrise, which is only open for dinner on Friday/Saturday evenings.

Also on Maybank and owned by the same folks who own Fat Hen is Wild Olive, one of our favorites.

If you are interested in driving out to Bohicket Marina (for the view), there is Red's Icehouse and Fischers.

Chez Fish is on the way to the Freshfields/Bohicket Marina area.
