Excellent seafood meal! A little on the pricey side but well worth it, had plenty to chose from and had other options on the menu for non-seafood. Highly recommend!

Never fails....... have been here several times in the past five years. Brought our friends from the Midwest - never been to Charleston. They loved the she-crab soup!

This restaurant seemed to be busy during our entire stay but we didn't have to wait too long even for our group of 6. The bucket of crab legs & shrimp was really good & definitely plenty of food for two. The shrimp that came with the crab cake was very good but the crab cake wasn't as good as hoped. The she crab soup was very good as well. The service was very good considering how busy it was. If you are in the mood for seafood this is a good choice with plenty of options.

My family ate are here recently because we love seafood. The staff was super friendly. We had a waitress named Danielle who really made it a great overall experience. Also being right off the beach is nice. We loved the cocktail area being able to listen to live music and enjoy the weather. We got the crabs and oysters. My husband really enjoyed his crab legs although my oysters could have been cleaned a little better. However, Danielle made sure to clean the oysters a little extra for him. Over all it was a good experience.
