The food was average for a bar and grill, but the hushpuppies were very good. The place was very dusty and dirty. The view, however, was wonderful. Located right on the water.

The view may not be as good but the food is much better than across the street at RB's! Even here it can be hit or miss. Ordered a basket of hush puppies and they were hard as a rock. Seafood was perfectly fried, fries...More

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.

Fresh Seafood, Sandwiches, Salads, Daily Specials, Sunday Brunch. All served with Charleston charm & just inches from the water. Hang out at our Dock Bar overlooking Shem Creek and enjoy outdoor dining on the deck. Great for happy hour and a rockin' Sunday Brunch!
