“A good find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We dropped by spontaneously after browsing on Market St. My husband loved the scallops and I thought the crabcakes were 'to die for'. This is a great find for lunch or an afternoon snack. It's also a great place to take kids because it's so informal. We'd go back, for sure, the next time we visit Charleston.

“Nice place, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

We picked this place because we liked where it was located near the market district. We also love seafood! We sat at a table upstairs and outside on the deck. It was perfect as we could see right down to the street. Ordered the bbq shrimp and grits as an appetizer and it was very yummy. I didn't even think I liked grits but if you put bbq sauce and cheese on them, I'm in. We also had the crab claws and they were good, but not really worth the price. All of our dinners were great and plentiful portions. Sides were fresh. The waitress was good although she couldn't answer some basic questions about the menu. All in all, it's a nice place and I'd go back if in Charleston again.

“great fried tomatoes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

We did lunch here, where my wife ate the Crab Cake stack...a jumbo crab cake between two fried green tomatoes. I did the crab cake sandwich, with a cold Bud and loved it. Great seafood items, good service, roof top view of the city. Really a neat place.
