Recommended by a foodie and was really true to the word on this Sunday. I had the Steak & Eggs which could not be improved upon. The Flank Steak was cooked over a wood grill and expertly charred/marked perfectly juicy and flavorful. The eggs- scrambled w/cheese were fluffy and moist, the hash browns crisp and homemade, not those pucks that Sysco sells to most restaurants. They have a homemade hot sauce that is outstanding on its own! My girlfriend had the HUEVOS RANCHEROS that were also spot on for Texans who know Tex-Mex done right. Fresh salsa, perfectly done eggs, what more can you ask for? As easy as it sounds, I have not had two breakfasts so good since Balthazar in NYC. The Hot Buttered Rumcake w/Vanilla ice cream is decadently rich and flavorful. NO FRILLS, just food done right at a very fair price. Outstanding service with a smile from greeting to the check. I'll be back

We have been BIG fans of red Drum since they opened, have eaten every dish every season, and have never been disappointed. Ben Berryhill is a rock star chef. I could live on the skillet cheese grits and I know people who order the steak frites time after time. Ben has a great way with seafood, game, you name it. Charlie the manager is wonderful and the bartenders are fun too. gastropub-style food. DEFEINITELY need a reservation on the weekend.

As if the food wasn't enough to beat the red drum about, the espresso martinis are absolutely habit-forming. The seafood sampler appetizer includes a spectacular ceviche and perfectly cooked shrimp. The staff is friendly and efficient. It will be on our list every time we visit the area.

You have got to check out the Red Drum Gastro Pub if ever staying in Mt. Pleasant, SC. There are a lot of good resturants in the Charleston area but if you like a warm atmosphere, Jazz Band, great service and really unique food with a local flare, check out Red Drum... The Ceviche is killer a must have.

This was one of the best meals in the Charleston area. We had mashed potatoes flautas as an appetizer, steak with a chimichurri type sauce, and the best dessert. It was fried doughnuts with a dulce de leche cream sauce. It was wonderful. Try to get a table outside. It has great atmosphere!
