Depends on your expectations in beach town. Husband and I shared Charleston bucket and we enjoyed it. Friend thought oysters were just ok. Other friend doesn't like seafood so she ordered a burger which she didnt like. Service was good but there is a wait during 4th of july weekend.

Best seafood I've ever had! I had the snow crab legs and they were great. Everything was so fresh and delicious. Service was excellent as well. We will definitely be going back!

Johnathan, our waiter, was extremely nice, knowledgeable about the menu and was very attentive! Food was good! My teenager actually ate a whole serving of crab legs...that's a first!

I did not care for the she crab soup at all. It tasted like a basic flour/butter roux. I could see flecks of crab in it, but did not taste it. I asked that it be taken off of our bill. We had much better shecrab soup in Charleston.

Our waiter, Jason, was attentive even though he was clearly covering a high number of tables.

The crab leg bucket was a good value, but the crab legs were cold--and not just that they had cooled. Clearly, they were a frozen item and were not heated through before coming to our table (Before the appetizer arrived).

The peach shackquirei was excellent. Recommend that for sure!
