It's been a year since we last visited Morgan Creek Grill and it was well worth the wait. We returned once again for their Thanksgiving Buffet overlooking the Marina. Buffet had plenty of everything available from craved ham and Turkey to salads, dressing, potatoes, fruit, dessert and all the trimmings. Buffet is served from 12PM - 4PM and reservations are...

A group of 13 friends on a weekend retreat went there for dinner. A real lowdown pub style restaurant on the water. Nothing fancy, rather old and dingy looking. The food was pretty good. I had the shrimp and grits which was rather spicy for me but that's just me. Everyone else seemed to like their meals also. But the... More

During our month-long stay at Isle of Palms Marina, we had several lunches in the Upper Deck! Burgers and sandwiches were great. This is also a great place to watch football games on Sunday afternoons!

Maybe the shrimp is from Livingston's in McClellanville? Possibly the oysters. The flounder? Doubtful. Some beers. We fish out of the marine there off and on, year after year and I have never seen anything that is caught locally offered. NC Catfish? Salmon? Calamari? Catch of the day would be so easy. But frozen and delivered is even easier, right.... More

The menu was limited, but we were there for lunch so maybe the dinner menu is better? The waitstaff was friendly and the wife's fish sandwich was unique and prepared/served well. Cold lobster? What were Bostonians thinking??? I could give them another chance as the waitress was a sweetheart and the view wonderful.

I ordered Shrimp and Grits and it was the best I have ever eaten. The sauce and grits were full of flavor and the shrimp were extremely fresh and plentiful. The dish could not have tasted better.

We told them to be very careful cooking the seafood but they managed to over cook everyone's at the table. It was too bad as it would've been a much more pleasant experience. The food was mid range pricey but over priced when you can't eat the chewy seafood.
