“The view!!!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

We have only dined upstairs. The view is breath taking of an island in Wild Dunes, Morgan Creek, Goat Island and the Intercoastal Waterway. Boats come in and out of the Isle of Palms Marina constantly. We have our eyes locked on the water! The food is good, fine. Nothing magnificent but great price point. This could be the greatest small event/rehearsal dinner space ever IF it was updated!! The servers are the worst. Nice people but slow as all get out! We always end up disappointed in the service alone. We have even sat at the bar and still ended up with below-par service; empty glasses siting on the bar 4ft from two bartenders chatting for an extended period of time... Bummer. Downstairs is a different dining experience from what I have been told. And outside; LOVE outside! Great "yard area", overlooking the Marina. The weekend afternoons are so nice with bands and cornhole games but again the bartenders are slow and not polite. So for me, we will return again and again but only for the unflawed view of my lowcountry!!

“Good food but poor service”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Nice location. Dynamite views of waterway and marina. Would be great place to visit in daytime for great views. Nice menu with many choices fish fowl or meat. We had the fresh seafood platter with shrimp and oysters. Delicious. And the shrimp risotto which was full of medium size shrimp. Nice! On the service end they came up short. Appetizer came. Then the entrees. When we asked where our salads were we got a blank look. The they decided they'd go get them. Promised us more water but it never came. Needless to say we can't comment on the desserts cuz we didn't stay to try any. Not sure id rush back to dinner here again.

“Great way to start the morning”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

They always serve weekend breakfast here, but seasonally, they serve it during the week. This is a great little secret, and word really ought to get out. It was great ! A beautiful view of course doesn't hurt. But the service was friendly, informative, if we asked questions, and the food was WOW. I had the Crab Cake Benedict. Perfectly cooked, delicious, and a real decadent way to start the morning. Hubby had the Captain's Breakfast - loved it. The potatoes were steaming hot, tender, and tasty - something you don't often find in today's frozen food world.
Service was great - and the couple behind us were locals, and helped us find a couple other hidden gems. On the weekends this place is packed. But we were there on a Thursday, and it wasn't busy at all. Likely because it is seasonal and it isn't in the middle of tourist haven downtown. I can't imagine why else, because it is reasonably priced, delicious, friendly, and has a beautiful view!
