As always the food here was fantastic. The she-crab soup is great! The shrimp-crab casserole just melts in your mouth. Have never had anything like it anywhere else. Overall a must visit while in the Charleston area!

Stopped for a light dinner. Promptly greeted and seated. Only had the raw oysters and the she crab. Both were excellent. Pretty good beer selection. Prices are reasonable. Probably would have given the highest rating if my experience hadn't been so limitedMore
