My husband and I came across this restaurant our first day in Charleston. We sat on the outside rooftop patio, which was great. The crab cakes were good, as well as the shrimp "po-boy". The prices were reasonable, and waitress was good. We would recommend this place for both food and the view from the rooftop patio.

We visited this restaurant upon our arrival and walked Market Street on a nice Saturday night.

The location is great, if you are new to town start here and walk around to get a feel for the area.

Our server was excellent. A young man with an interesting accent that was a blend of Australia and Southern US. He was patient with our questions and very helpful.

The grilled shrimp (Cajun style), red rice with sausage, mahi and scallops were excellent. The cook that was on was outstanding, everything was perfect.

A great meal in a great location.

Crab dip is very good. Crab cake good but not great (about a third filler). Fried shrimp good. The booth felt like sitting in a hole, we should have asked to move. No draft beer. Service friendly but slow.

My husband and I ate here recently and had a good experience. We sat on the rooftop which was nice but our table didn't have much of a view. The service, drinks and food were very good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Charleston.

The food was excellent and so was the service. It was a bit crowded and noisy, but for a family dinner it was fine. The seafood was fresh and well prepared. In general, I would recommend this to visitors to Charleston.
