I had to get the famous t-shirt! It's located at the end of South Beach in the Sea Pines area on the south side of the island. You have to pay $5 to get into that area but it is worth it since you get to see the small shops and cafes. The drive there is beautiful and the houses you pass to get to the cafe are enviable. The food was good, but "basic." I had gumbo and it was not as good as I have had from other places, but it was a good starter. We sat outside and you basically pay for the location, view, and atmosphere. It was nice to see families out there and listen to the music. Of course I got the T-Shirt!

After taking a lunch table outside on the side dock, we quickly decided to move indoors. Too many Seagulls wanted to share our food. Once settled indoors, the meal was very enjoyable.

Food was excellent and the view was tranquil. The only negative was the "entertainment". Too loud! Still, it was a very good dining experience.

We have a summer home in Sea Pines and this is the first place we go to when we get here. The hush puppies are to die for and we just love the atmosphere!
