“Awesome!!!”
Review of BuddyRoe's Shrimp Shack - CLOSED

BuddyRoe's Shrimp Shack
Price range: $3 - $19
Cuisines: American, Seafood, Bar
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night
Description: Tucked halfway between Mount Pleasant proper and Sullivan’s Island is the little seafood eatery the New York Post proclaimed was "a sleeper" with 'shrimp that is nothing short of miraculous’. Buddy Roe’s doesn’t claim to be a five star restaurant. What they lack in overpriced menu items they more than make up for in total ambiance. BuddyRoe’s is a clean little hangout where locals converge to enjoy palette pleasing local fresh shrimp, fried oysters, fish Tacos, awesome burgers, throw back a couple of beers, and listen to great live music performed by some of the best local musicians. Think red dirt Texas roadhouse meets tropical Key West beach and you have the recipe for BuddyRoe’s Shrimp Shack. This is truly a laid back tropical paradise that is certain to satisfy all your senses, especially your taste buds and hearing.......like being on vacation!

“Awesome!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We were returning from Isle of Palms & decided to get seafood. Just happened by this place. Wow, so glad we stopped. First, this was some of the best customer service we've ever had. Everyone is so friendly. We had shrimp, catfish, onion rings, & coleslaw. (Hush Puppies were complimentary) All the food was outstanding. The sweet tea A++. Prices were very reasonable. We highly recommend you stop by and enjoy the food and typical shack atmosphere.

“GREAT”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I had the pimento cheese dip and it was awesome!! I ordered a flounder sandwich and mu husband had fried shrimp, both were very fresh and delicious. He said it was the best shrimp he had had in a very long time. It's a bar/restaurant atmosphere that surprised me with how great the food was. live music in the evening. we had a late lunch. the waitress was super nice

“A good place for lunch”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

A bar/mini golf establishment that serves seafood is how i can sum this place up....My family went for lunch, all of us had seafood and for the price it was pretty good....I imagine this place is a bit better at night being its a bar...

“Great stop for tourists seeking local seafood”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This place was pretty-much what I expect and want out of a local beach town seafood joint. Their seafood is local, well-prepared, and I would say a biiiit pricey for the portion size. Still, I would recommend it to anyone in the area.

“Good food, appalling atmosphere”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Based on reviews here on Tripadvisor, we decided to stop by for fish tacos, food was actually good, the rest of experience just awful. They have a garage door open leading to the bar area, wide open with many smokers sitting right next to the opening, meaning the restaurant was filled with smoke. Smokers walking into and thru the restaurant smoking, people walking thru the bar with dogs to the bar. Overall dirty and run down,...would not ever go again or recommend to anyone else.
