The restaurant is very conscientious of its source of seafood. Also, we appreciated alternatives to seafood for our 'landlubber' friends. Service people were knowledgeable and efficient.

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen specializes in local seafood, if we cannot source it locally it is sourced off the East Coast of the USA! We do not serve seafood from any other area. We of course never serve any imported seafood. We truly believe in supporting American Fishermen and Shrimpers!
