We enjoyed sitting outside watching the boats go by. Great food, our group tried the fried shrimp platter, shrimp Newberg and shrimp Po-boy. Everything was delicious and we will definitely add this to our food rotation when we visit Charleston.

Best grits I've ever had. We enjoyed waching the birds out on the creek. There is a nice pier. Truly beautiful setting for a lunch in Mt. Pleasant.

I've been meaning to review this for a while and I am surprised by some of the ratings on here. In my opinion, this is the spot for seafood on Shem Creek. I've been to every one, and we keep finding our way back here....More

Enjoyed the beautiful views, good food and service. Our server Jessica was very attentive. It took awhile for our food,?and it came out lukewarm however it was full of flavor. We really enjoyed the views.

By looking in the restaurant, if you are having a party, you may all not sit together, plus, I was not a fan of that place. The staff have serious attitudes. I would check other options.
