From what I could find online, the owners are the same, but they "upgraded" Buddy Roe's to Sawyer's because they didn't want to own just a bar. This was hugely disappointing as BR's had the best shrimp baskets in the various sauces plus the fried...More

A little difficult to find and of course we were disappointed to discover this place is now closed. Perhaps it will return as construction folks are at this location working on interior repairs. Avoid this one for now.

Food was very good. But they told us it was their last day. Hope they open back up. Would love to come again.

What a cool place! We ended up going on what was Storytellers night, which was locals performing their own songs on stage. We came with our 3 younger kids and didn't know it was more of a bar with food. While we were contemplating whether...More

We stopped in on a rainy Sunday afternoon for a few drinks and some food. The drinks were pretty tasty and the food was good but the service was just ok for a time when there were few customers. The reviews we looked at gave...More

We've been visiting the IOP for many years and Buddy Roe's is a must stop on our list when we vacation. It's low key and casual with live music some evenings.

We found this place three years ago vacationing and had to come back this year. The food was excellent both times. They know how to prepare shrimp. Had putt-putt and games for the kids.

Great food and service! We had a party of 10, including 3 young kids. Our waitress was excellent. We had a great time! The batter they use is the kind I love. I had the fried shrimp basket with a baked potato. Loved it! Nice...More

Great food, drinks and service. Made last minute reservations for 10 people (3 children). Live music was great added bonus.

Tucked halfway between Mount Pleasant proper and Sullivan’s Island is the little seafood eatery the New York Post proclaimed was "a sleeper" with 'shrimp that is nothing short of miraculous’.

Buddy Roe’s doesn’t claim to be a five star restaurant. What they lack in overpriced menu items they more than make up for in total ambiance. BuddyRoe’s is a clean little hangout where locals converge to enjoy palette pleasing local fresh shrimp, fried oysters, fish Tacos, awesome burgers, throw back a couple of beers, and listen to great live music performed by some of the best local musicians.

Think red dirt Texas roadhouse meets tropical Key West beach and you have the recipe for BuddyRoe’s Shrimp Shack. This is truly a laid back tropical paradise that is certain to satisfy all your senses, especially your taste buds and hearing.......like being on vacation!
