Food was ok, but that is the type of place it is. People write messages on dollar bills and staple them all over the restaurant. The owners take them down each year and donate them to some charity....pretty cool to see where people are from and that the money goes to a good cause.

We stopped one day for lunch on our way to Fripp Island. Atmosphere is like a fish house in the south with dollar bills stapled to the walls.
Service and staff were great and food was hot and quick and good. Would definitely make this a stop if we go by here again.

A relaxed spot with good comfort food. This is the place to go for seafood and great views. The service is friendly and the menu has good variety. My sife and I make it a point to go when we are in the area.

popped into this restaurant for dinner one night just so we could taste their Frog more stew. (recommended by Billy at Marsh Tacky's market)
This stew is named after a town near Harbor Island. My husband, who normally eats everything put in front of him, was not impressed. He called it boring. I had the She Crab soup, which I found to be excellent. We had 2 coffees with our meal with the bill coming to $29. despite the She Crap soup, which is a popular dish that most restaurants make well, neither of us were impressed.

We stayed a week on Fripp Island, by mid week we stopped by one day and had a late lunch at Johnson Creek Tavern. We were surprised how good the shrimp and scallop basket tasted. We enjoyed it so much, we went back a couple days later for take out, before our week ended. You enter the place and there are dollar bills on the walls, ceilings and doorways, the dollar bills were stapled on the surfaces as donation for a charity. What an idea...approx. thousands of dollars. Wow.....we were impressed! We enjoyed the food, excellent shrimp and out of this world scallop basket with unique fries!! We would definitely return to Johnson Creek Tavern, bring your dollar bill to post on the wall for a worthy cause.
