The lobster roll was excellent. It tasted fresh and there was a decent amount of lobster. The old bay chips were great with it.

This a beautiful venue, tastefully decorated in keeping with the Charleston experience. Tiffany was absolutely the best shucker in the low country!!! They were perfectly cleaned, no grit, no shell pieces and the muscle was cleanly severed. Try the peel and eat shrimp too!

a great stop on our visits. I do not do oysters, but my wife and our friends all love them here and they are moderately priced. This is always a must stop for drinks, appetizers, or the fish and chips are more than a meal

The place to me seems a bit like a bar more than a restaurant. I ordered a burger and soft drink and it was around $16 total so it’s a bit pricey. Atmosphere when I was there was loud and people were a bit obnoxious....More
