My family arrived for a late lunch. This restaurant is "in the cut" and I would not have found it without the help of my niece. We were greeted by the owner and shown to our seats. We looked at the menu and ordered. While waiting we all had a glass of wine. We were not in a hurry so we were able to have conversation with the owner and among ourselves. We did not wait long for our lunch as all of our entrees were not pre-prepared sitting under a hot lamp. They prepared when we ordered. That was a big plus for me. Nothing worse than old food. Since I have a food allergy, Miss Alluette was able to put my mind at ease when it came to the seasonings. The coleslaw was cold as it should be and my fish sandwich and fries were hot. I will say I was surprised the sandwich was made of sandwich thins I find in the grocery store as opposed to an artisan type bread, but the flounder was well seasoned and tasty.
I have noticed some people have complained of the price. I too think the prices are high, but after spending a long weekend in Hilton Head, I think all coastal SC towns charge a great deal for fresh fish. Yes, as a person who eats a lot of fish, Alluette's fish is fresh. The coleslaw was fresh and not soggy where it had been sitting in the refrigerator over night. Our bill (for my mother and me) was $56(without tip). That included both fish sandwich lunches, 2 glasses of Chateau St. Michelle reisling (by the way the price for the wine was inline with other restaurants I order. It runs from $6-8 a glass), 2 gigantic cookies and a large bottle of bottled water. It's more than I usually pay for lunch, but Charleston is a tourist town and one will pay tourist prices.
I would definitely return!
