“Perfect Meal”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is a very laid back restaurant with an island vibe. I had the crab cake sandwich. It was beautifully presented and the best I have ever had! Go here you will not be disappointed!

Hey, thanks for the great review! Glad to hear you enjoyed your crab cake sandwich. The crab in there is all fresh and is sourced as close to local as I can get it from North Carolina. Keep it local and keep it good! Thanks for the review!

“Great food”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Heard so much about Acme and decided to give it a try.WOW! Everyone is very friendly and the service was great. They made me feel like I've been there a hundred times before. The food was excellent. Looking forward to going back and try something else. Loved the fried pickles and jalapeño peppers, and the shrimp and grits where wonderful

“we enjoyed it”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We just left from the Cantina. Service was great, very fast and constantly checking on us. I had the Sweet Tea chicken that was quite tasty. Everyone else enjoyed their food with the only mild complaint being the tacos were just a bit too spicy. It was certainly worth the money and I would happily eat there again.

“Shrimp and Grits... Who Knew!?!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

This restaurant was our first introduction to low country cuisine. The thought of combining southern staples, then further enhanced with smoked sausage, fueled the anticipation, and the dish did not disappoint in either quality or quantity. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, and I get the sense that both tourists and locals frequent the place. Finally, you don't come here for candle-lit ambiance: it's a straight-up, food-centric, sit-down-and-eat establishment that gets you moving along and happy.

“Totally recomment it!!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Some people might over look this place because its small and on the island but the food stands up to what you can find in downtown Charleston. We eat here several times each trip to the island. The atmosphere is fun and casual and the staff is great. Menu has a wide variety but the seafood is excellent and best bloody mary around!!
