The food absolutely sucked. It was over cooked, bland, and greasy. The service was ehh. Seriously, there are so many great restaurants in Charleston and Mount Pleasant, go somewhere decent, not here.

Had a lovely meal of mahi and fries. It was delicious! We were entertained by the dolphins swimming in the water outside whilst we ate. The decor is amazing and this restaurant is a real gem!

It was ok. No out door eating for people however its comfy seating for drinkers instead. Food was just ok. I had a free appetizer from the hotel and they didn't take it off. Had to wait for ever to get the $10 off.

Most of the restaurants in Mount Pleasant are kid friendly, with RBs there's the creek, a wonderful sunset view, and the occasional dolphin. There are also several chain restaurants, but they don't give you the local flavor.
