“Unbelievible Food”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We're here on vacation and the hotel workers recommended this place because they claimed it had the best seafood, it turns out they were right. I had the salmon and my mom had the fish tacos, and they were both cooked to perfection. The chef even came out and talked to us. We sat on the heated patio in the back right corner and the waitress we had was amazing; very sweet, attentive, and gave us great recommendations. I recommend this restaurant to any seafood lovers out there!

“Awesome food, glad we stopped by!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

We're relocating to the area and decided to check this place out. Been here twice now, and everything's exceptional: the staff, the food, locally brewed beer and fresh catches each day. The ambiance is warm & inviting. This will definitely become a family favorite! Seated quickly, food comes out fast. Chef stops by to check on each table. One of our new favorites for a long time to come!!

“Incredible Cuisine”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We ate at this place three times during our week-long stay at Isle of Palms--it was that good. High quality food for very reasonable prices. You can tell the chef takes great pride in the work he does, and he is a great talent. Even our 3 year old cleaned her plate, and she is a seriously picky eater! My compliments to the chef and friendly, efficient, wonderful wait staff. It was nice to truly be "served" at a restaurant instead of feeling as though our patronage was a burden (as is all too often I find at most restaurants nowadays). I will recommend this place to anyone traveling in the Charleston area.

“All the effort is in the cuisine- and it shows.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

The outside of the building looks a bit battered and unkempt but step inside and you will see that it's worth it. Food was so good we ate dinner there 3 times during our vacation! Inside is beach casual without much fuss but the star of the show is the low country cuisine which the chef gets pitch perfect. We had seafood, beef, desserts - all prepared just right. Friendly wait staff. First two visits we ate in the dining room, third visit we ate from the indoor deck area off the bar. All had same menu so no problem there. This is a restaurant you need to try if you're on the island. Memorable meal in a very laid back environment! One oddity: a young hostess who seated guests 2 of the 3 times we were there but never spoke to or smiled at them. The high energy and friendly busboys and wait staff canceled out her negative vibes, thankfully!

“Small and Beautiful”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This place looks small from the outside and is definitely 'casual' on the inside, but the food is outstanding! Four people, we all ordered from the list of 'Specials' at dinner, and all were truly excellent. The prices were within reason for the quality of the food. Will go there again!
