We spend the winter on Isle of Palms in Wild Dunes. For a number of years we've enjoyed many wonderful meals around IOP, Sullivan's Island, Mount Pleasant and Charleston but until last winter when we read about a new chef at Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, we never gave the place a try. It has a rustic, unassuming appearance that could be easy to overlook. This place has become one of our favorites for any meal. The many different Benedict's and omelette are terrific at breakfast. The burgers and fish tacos are great...we especially like the "ragin Cajun" and "downtowner" burgers; and the fried grouper tacos. The Carolina succotash (with either shrimp, scallops, or chicken) is excellent for lunch or dinner. The succotash is an interesting combination of butter beans, corn, field peas, bacon in a delicious sauce....mmmmm. The fried shrimp, oysters, and flounder (which you can find in many places) are all terrific...lightly coated and not greasy and heavy.
All in all the wait staff are all friendly, helpful and competent...they seem to enjoy working there. It's not uncommon to see the chef come out to ask how you're enjoying your meal. If you're thinking about dining on a Thursday evening, you'd better call for a reservation...it's lobster night...3 petite tails and 2 sides for $19. We love Acme!
