We went to The Wreck on the recommendation of a relative. Lesson learned: read Tripadvisor, too. The food was okay, but honestly, I've gotten comparable seafood five hours inland at a family restaurant that doesn't specialize in seafood. And at maybe 60% of the price.
Every meal is served with the same four sides: coleslaw, which was different form any I've ever had and quite good; one hushpuppy that looked burned to a crisp, but was not and was also very good; a cube of fried hominy that was ... unusual; and room-temperature red rice that could easily have been Rice-a-roni.
My fried oysters were okay, but there weren't many. Glad I got the larger order. My wife had broiled scallops which were good but unremarkable.
The hardest part of the visit may have been the wait. There must've been 15 people sitting on both sides of a narrow hallway just inside the entrance. The restrooms were also on that hallway. Talk about close quarters. While we waited, I was seated where I could see people's food being paper-plated in the kitchen. Ultimately the combination of so-so food, tossed on paper plates, served on a paper table cover, and overpriced, brings me to say The Wreck is not a repeat for me.
