We really enjoyed the food here and the prices were reasonable. I ordered the shrimp and chips and asked for grilled shrimp instead of fried. We’ll definitely go back to Red’s when visiting this area.

Red's is a fun place to have a drink and some low country seafood right on the water. It gets very busy but it's worth the wait. You can bring your pup on the patio.

The menu is online. $18 for a bucket, $11 for half a bucket. I would only buy them when they’re in season locally - Sept thru Apr.
