Dropped in for a late dinner with a local family member (otherwise we'd never have found this place) At 8pm, the place was packed - a surprise for a week night. The menu consists of local flavors like, oysters on the half shell, catch of the day, steaks, burgers, etc.. Overall the food was a pleasant surprise. The service was... More

Not much to look at from the parking lot, but the food is terrific and the place is really huge inside. Bloody Marys and Mimosa's are too good when a long drive is ahead of you. We really had to practice a lot of self restraint.

My husband and I eat here every time we are in Charleston after our 8 week standing appointment. We wait until they re-open the kitchen at 5pm and order the grit fries with the bar-b-que sauce =).....I tell everyone that comes this way to eat here!! It is just that good!!!!

Recommended by several people; went for dinner-told the wait would be 30-45 minutes. we were seated in 10minutes. Food was great-our server was overworked or just didn't want to wait on us. She rattled off specials and said she would be back in a minute to get drinks- took 10 minutes to get drink order in. She was very rushed... More

We had a great time tonight. We liked being in the bar so much- we ate our dinner there. Nick takes great pride in making wonderful specialty drinks. Heidi and Nick both gave excellent service. Food was good. The drinks were even better.

Our son and daughter-in-law recommend Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, and they were so right. Jeff provided wonderful service and menu advice. Started with grits fries with gouda, bacon, and scallion sauce. Marvelous. Then one of us had The 'Light' House: sautéed shrimp, pan seared scallops, and a crab cakes, with sides of collard greens and deep fried Brussels sprouts. The other... More

Have eaten here many times while on IOP and food has been great and other times not so great. I think they have made changes in kitchen. Casual atmosphere and relaxed service with good bar drinks and beers. Not a fancy place but good casual food although last two visits we felt portions had become significantly smaller for price.

Visiting friends in Mount Pleasant and this restaurant came highly recommended! I come from New England and wanted traditional South Carolina cooking so we went for several versions of their shrimp and grits - one with fried green tomatoes and cheese grits and a BBQ version with fried grits and BBQ sauce. One in my party had fried soft shell... More

We had to wait a bit for a table but once we were seated it was a nice lunch. Three of the 4 of us had the special sheepshead sandwich and one had the fried flounder. The food was delicious and probably the best hush puppies I have ever had. Casual atmosphere. I would go back for the delicious food.
