Visiting the isle of palms for the first time from the UK, we were advised to eat at Acme. We were not disappointed, great food, I had the trio, fillet steak, lobster tails and lump crab cake, delicious. My wife had the shrimp special, she was particularly impressed with the grits.
Staff were super efficient and friendly, a very good experience.
Went back twice more and enjoyed it just as much.

We ate at this restaurant once for dinner and once for breakfast during our last weeklong stay at the Isle of Palms. The food was tasty and reasonably priced both times. The once caution is that we encountered a fair amount of pepper in just about every dish at dinner, so if that is a problem for you, you may just want to skip lunch and dinner and just have breakfast here.

Stopped in for breakfast, we thought would be run of the mill, but we were pleasantly surprised by the not your ordinary menu. Grits to die for, filet mignon benedict w/ parmesan truffle homefries, really awesome. Petra was great, and showed us the dinner menu, Thought about it all day and planned on going back for dinner. Wendy was also wonderful and recommended the sheepshead w/ peaches and cream grits. AWESOME like eating whipped cream ! Can't wait till next spring to see whats on the menu then.

We had not been here in years and went on the recommendation of friends. Dined on April 15 and were just blown away. The building itself is unassuming however the food is gourmet quality. Had their signature succotash with locally caught fresh fish; just delicious. I could have licked the bowl. Nice beer and wine selection as well. Our server, Shawna, was great and obviously enjoys working here. Would definitely return and a great place to bring out of towners.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our neighbor. On our last visit to IOP, we stopped in one night and we loved it. The food was great and so was the service. Our servers were Heidi and Shawna. We went for lunch one day and then dinner the same day and breakfast the next morning. The portions are large so come with an appetite!
